A Canadian publishing house for Science Fiction and Fantasy, Dragon Moon Press, has announced that it has entered into a partnership agreement with Virtual Tales, an e-publisher of serialized novels and novellas spanning a variety of fiction genres and styles. Under the terms of the agreement, Virtual Tales will serialize and distribute selected Dragon Moon Press novels through its website.
"This is a unique opportunity to expand readership for our award-winning novels," said Gwen Gades, Publisher at Dragon Moon Press. "We are delighted to be able to offer readers the chance to enjoy our popular Science Fiction and Fantasy book in a convenient, serialized format."
"We are very excited about this opportunity to be working with Dragon Moon Press," said Dave A. Law, Chairman of Virtual Tales. "Dragon Moon Press is an acclaimed publisher in the Science Fiction and Fantasy genres, and this agreement will enable us to offer our e-serial readers works from some of their very talented authors."
The first novel chosen for serialization by Virtual Tales will be "Sojourn" by Jana G. Oliver. This time-travel thriller will take readers back to Victorian England for a fresh look at one of the most talked-about unsolved crimes in history - the serial killings of Jack the Ripper.
"When you think about it, what could be better than to serialize a novel involving one of the most infamous serial killers in history, during the height of serial story popularity?" Law continued. "Time travel puts a modern spin on this story, and Virtual Tales provides the modern spin to serial format."
