Keep It Coming, the publisher at the forefront of the renaissance of serialized fiction, is proud to announce the publication of Devon EllingtonÂs western novella, "Elusive Prayers."
The story follows Brother Joseph, known to the readers of EllingtonÂs popular western serial "The Widow's Chamber," which has run on KIC since the siteÂs inception in November of 2003. Brother Joseph left Nora Cavanaugh, the protagonist of "The Widow's Chamber," in 1853 Nashville. While Nora continued on to New Orleans, determined to discover the secret of the widowÂs chamber in order to save her brother JamesÂs life, the monk headed towards Iowa Territory to take care of some business of his own, before returning to his monastery for good. However, a stop to rest in Tickweed, Missouri turns violent, and Brother Joseph is caught up in a local conflict Â which may or may not be connected to NoraÂs plight.
Although "Elusive Prayers" ties in to "The Widow's Chamber," it is also a stand-alone novella of approximately 22,000 words. ÂSubscribers to 'The Widow's Chamber' will enjoy the references,Â says Ellington, Âbut anyone who simply wants to read the novella is not going to feel left out of the loop. They connect, but they are also independent.Â
Ellington currently writes "The Widow's Chamber (western), "Tapestry" (mystery), and "Cutthroat Charlotte" (action/adventure pirate) for KIC. Each serial consists of two issues per week, delivered to the subscriberÂs email box, and new subscribers always start with the first issue. One, three and six-month subscriptions are available. "Elusive Prayers" is available as an e-book on the KIC site, for only $4.

Will there be more novellas tied in to "The Widow's Chamber?"
ÂAt least one,Â Ellington admits. ÂCletus and Elwood, the two drunks in Nashville, garnered more fan mail than almost any of the other characters in the serial. They have to have their own adventure!Â
