I'm working on a wordpress site as the new hub for my serial which is going to be the main site. My work is broken up into novellas which range in size from 15k to 30k. Currently I have about 170k words worth of material and am about 60% through the initial season.
My question is, what's the best way to release this? As complete novellas, or broken up? I've tried both methods on various different sites and haven't gotten conclusive results. While there are natural scene breaks, my stories are meant to be read as complete novellas according to pacing etc, but I'm wondering if readers will sit down to tackle 20k+ words. But without super cliffhangers at the end of every segment I'm worried if continuity will be lost.
So this is especially to the guys who have been doing this for a while. What has your experience been and which works best? Posting complete stories arcs or segments?
Thanks in advance!
