Alexander McCall Smith Online Novel

Here's some exciting news about one of my favorite authors, Alexander McCall Smith. The author of the NO 1 LADIES DETECTIVE AGENCY series is writing an online novel on the Telegraph site, called CORDOROY MANSIONS. A new chapter is posted each day. The project started way back in September and will finish in February, but you can catch up online at

I am a huge fan of the NO 1 LADIES DETECTIVE AGENCY books; and if you're not familiar with them, you should definitely give them a try. They are clean, cute mysteries that will also make you laugh. The best thing about them to me is that they are guaranteed to make you think! I'm also very excited that these books will be coming to the television screen in the very near future. You can read more about it on one of my earlier posts.

Corduroy Mansions has been running for a few weeks, and it's easy to catch up. You can read the chapters on the site, as an rss feed or email update, as a downloadable widget, or you can follow the project on Twitter You can also provide comments about the story and listen to Alexander McCall Smith's answers.

Thanks for this info! I started reading it yesterday. I've never read a serialized (online, no less) book, so I'm having fun experiencing this format.
