With a serial...nobody knows the it keeps everyone guessing, betting, and discussing what could be coming next.

Looking for a fun, new idea for a book club? "I think every book club should try a serial novel at least once," says author Holly Wilde. "With a serial novel, nobody knows the ending, so it keeps everyone guessing, betting and discussing what could be coming up next."

Generally, in a serial novel, a new chapter is posted on a set schedule, so everyone in the book club will be on the same page at the same time. "I post a chapter in my serial Salt River Confessions every Tuesday, and if I get feedback from a reader, I may or may not change the outcome based on that feedback," says Wilde.

Serials are different from ebooks. Serials are online, but they are usually posted one chapter at a time. This results in a fun, slow burning read that keeps the reader wanting more. "It's not instant gratification, but just like romance, waiting and wanting can make life much more exciting," says Wilde. Serials are perfect for busy people who don't have the luxury of sitting down to read an entire novel in one day.
