On September 24, 2021, I released my first episode of sunshine Tested on Kindle Vella. What an amazing opportunity to release a book or novella in episodes. This definitely changed the game for authors. With three of the episodes being free, this allows readers to get a preview of three episodes before they decide to purchase other episodes. I am definitely a fan of originality and things that can assist authors with readership.
Below is a preview of released or upcoming episodes. Enjoy!
Episode 1- Ms. Karey (Free/Available)
Do you believe that the only way to beat a group of people is to join them? Sounds logical, but sometimes the rules change and you end up turning into the very thing you hate. You turn into the very person you despise. The person and thing that is testing you.
Episode 2- The Meet (Free/Available)
The Meet introduces you to additional characters, especially Mr. Wonderful, who will be discussed through the book. It also sets the stage for a setting change from Ohio to New Jersey.
Episode 3- The Move (Free on 10/8/21)
“This isn’t Kansas anymore” or Ohio for that matter. How will Kaye adjust to the East Coast life as a Mid-West girl?
Episode 4- The Shade- 10/15/21
The shade is real and sometimes it’s from your homie and behind closed doors. Keeping up with who likes you is like trying to Keep Up with the Kardashians. Impossible!
Episode 5- The Approach- 10/22/21
It’s definitely a doggy dog world in this episode. Kaye starts to believe people are calculated in their approaches. Meaning they calculate their every move to progress at the expense of others.
Episode 6- The Adjustment- 10/29/21
Kaye is going through quite an adjustment. Who knew that her character would be scrutinized for being truthful and herself?
Episode 7- The Final Straw- 11/5/21
For every action there’s a reaction and for every thing that’s done in the dark, often comes to light. Kaye comes to the realization that most things aren’t wonderful.
Episode 8- The Omen- 11/12/21
Blinded by sight. Deafened with words. An omen brought me back to life. For I was disturbed.
Episode 9- The Mood
Episode 10- IDGAF
