Karina’s story begins under the full moon of December 13, 2016. Would you like to read her story as it unfolds?
Consumption started years ago as a short story. This autumn I expanded and rewrote it, turning it into a novel of vignettes — that is, instead of twenty-some chapters like a book would usually have, Consumption is made up of 81 vignettes (or mini-chapters).
A brief evocative description, account, or episode.
I will be publishing this novel in a more “traditional” format before long, but in the meantime, I want to share Karina’s story with you. Since it takes place over the winter and spring of 2016/17, I am going to release the vignettes on my website as they occur, as a serial. So on December 13, 2016, you can read the first vignette under the same full moon Karina sits under.
A printed format by which a single larger work, often a work of narrative fiction, is published in sequential installments.
