Feedback this weekend gave me the impression that my current serializations are made up of too many installments for some of my readers. So, with "Law Links," I'm switching back to the practice of serializing novels by part, rather than by chapter. I've posted the remainder of Part One (that is, Chapters 3-6) and will post Part Two next week.

Also, the question has come up as to whether I serialize unfinished works. No. :) With the exception of "Edgeplay in Mayhill" (which was a special case), all stories I serialize are finished. Sometimes my novels are made up of stories that can each be read independently, in which case I may post each story within the novel before the full novel is finished. But I don't start serializing a story until that particular story is finished.
