I've been reading Louise Allen's new on-line Regency story this week, An Experiment in Love. If you haven't found it yet, it can be found by clicking here , and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Louise's story – which comes out as a shortish chapter every day, Monday to Friday – started me thinking about what readers like best in their on-line reads.
Do you like a daily chapter? Or would you prefer weekly, or monthly?
Do you want weekdays only, for the coffee break at work, or would you like weekends as well?
What sort of length do you prefer? A quick read, 5 minutes at most, or something longer? How long is too long?
I'd really love to know. We've done on-line serials on this blog in the past, usually at Christmas. Maybe if you, the readers, would let us know what you want, some of the authors here would be spurred on to write a new serial. I will admit that I've been thinking about it...
PS I couldn't think of any appropriate images for this topic, so I'm including a photo that is ...well... interesting. It does have a vague link to romance, if you're deep into fairy tales. And if you want to see it for yourself, you'll have to go to Lake Constance on the borders of Austria, Germany and Switzerland.
