Hey just wanna say that somehow, with you breaking up your novel this way, it feels more digestible. :) Before, I felt like I didn't know if I could even attempt your novel, weirdly enough!

Very cool concept. I look forward to digging into it! :)

This is indeed very helpful and interesting. Is there a video somewhere showing a walk-through of how to set up/write/build an index like this, how to set up sections, how to post serialized posts, etc? I've been monkeying around with Substack for a few weeks now and am still not making any real progress on the technical stuff. Thanks.

Hi Simon,

I love sci fi and police procedurals but I've never tried reading a magazine serial before. Wow I'm so excited and amazed. I love that it is in bit sized format I could easy try and follow.

Thank you for your masterful work and sharing with us. Your substack series was also very helpful for me!

Your reader, Mel

I love the concept and the way you have separated it with a useful introduction intuitively easy to grasp. I haven't been convinced that a chronological serialisation of a fiction novel on substack would work so well, but to have a universe with a central theme but each bit as standalone intuitively seems right...cant wait to check it out :)
