I’m the author of Ashes to Asheville, the real-time weekly serial novel being published exclusively online by The Asheville Citizen-Times, the major daily newspaper in Asheville, North Carolina. A new chapter/installment of the story is finished and published every Thursday morning. It is the only serial novel currently being published by any major daily newspaper in the country.
You can read all the Ashes chapters to date here. The Asheville Citizen-Times newspaper article (of April, 2016) introducing the project is here. You can help support this unique revival of the American serial novel simply by liking its Facebook page.
For the Citizen-Times I also write an advice column. Ask John appears online, and in the SCENE section of the Friday print edition of the paper.
If you’re wrestling with any sort of personal problem that you’d like me to weigh in on, I invite you to submit your question for possible publication in Ask John. Send your question to AskJohnShore@gmail.com — or via my Contact form. Letters may be edited for brevity or clarity, and will be published anonymously.
