One of the more popular ways that readers are consuming digital content involves the auto-delivery of content such as serialized titles, installment short stories, auto-delivery of digital newspapers and magazines. Whether it’s a throwback to the days of authors like Poe, Dickens, and Twain, all three of whom often wrote and published in installments, or just the convenience of keeping up with content that readers previously enjoyed, serialization is a growing trend in digital publishing.
Sites like Wattpad, ebook distributors like SheBooks and Rooster, and even digital subscription managers like Pressreader and Zinio have all made the convenience and portability of favorited installment reading possible for busy consumers, but a new site, Senserial, is bringing serial titles to the mainstream.
Along with its sister site for multi-artist collaboration Sennection, Senserial is working to reach an audience of readers that don’t have time to browse for the content they know they’re going to love. Much like the Wattpad community in which readers sign up to follow an author whose work they enjoy, Senserial’s readers will be notified of new content without having to remember to go looking for titles.
“Senserial offers e-books that can be read in an exciting series style, with an episode being released every week. This way, much like a favourite TV show, readers can have something to look forward to weekly. We currently have a selection of 5 different novels, more to come once we are live,” explained Erin Bell, company spokesperson.
“We are also offering a special Early Access bonus, where people can claim six free episodes if they register on our website before we go live. We are also working on a communtiy platform, called Sennection, which is a collaborative community where writers, composers and graphic artists can create multimedia ebooks together.”
For more information or to sign up for early access, readers can check out their preview site at Senserial.com. The live version of the platform arrives in a little over two weeks.
