Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing has launched an online serial novel for teens that will end up as an eBook and paperback release. The novel is called Loser/Queen by author Jodi Lynn Anderson. The story writing has a unique twist. The community of readers can participate in how the story will evolve.

The first few chapters are available today and readers can go online and vote for how they wish the story to continue. Online readers also have the opportunity to vote for final cover art. New chapters will be available every Monday through September 13th, and readers can vote on the outcome each week. The final product will be available in its entirety online from September 13th through September 20th. A paperback and eBook edition of the final title is slated for release on December 21st.

The free chapters online are being hosted by LivingSocial’s Visual Bookshelf and sponsored by JCPenney.
