Read Serial

Alright everyone, I've got a link and some instructions here for you happy readers!

As part of the extras for Jack Kilborn's Afraid, Hachette has also posted a free ebook written by Kilborn and Blake Crouch. And, as promised yesterday (remember to enter to win a copy of Afraid before midnight next Wed.). Here's the link for the story. When you get there, hit "Short Story Serial..." (choose your format) in the bottom right hand corner and you'll get the book! 

The story is 42 pages and then you get some fun bonus stuff including excerpts from both Kilborn's Afraid and Crouch's upcoming Abandon, and an interview with the authors. Here's what Brianne with Hachette had to say when she sent me the info:

It’s called SERIAL, a terrifying tale of hitchhiking gone terribly wrong by Jack Kilborn and Blake Crouch. SERIAL is a horror novella. Like a deeply twisted version of an “After School Special,” it is the single most persuasive public service announcement on the hazards of free car rides.


The SERIAL eBook also contains a Q&A with Kilborn and Crouch, author bibliographies, and excerpts from their most recent and forthcoming works: Kilborn’s Afraid and Crouch’s Abandon.

And while you're at the HBG site, hang around and check out some of the other books they have out. They even have the OpenBook option where you can read an excerpt for some of their titles like Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child's Cemetery Dance and many others.
