The Power of Series


Short, succinct blog post on why series are useful for writers.

Let me add that Amazon loves series, and gives them high visibility. If you're planning a new work, have found a new character or are designing a new world, do consider creating a series out of it.

]The Power of a Series

So. What series are you going to write next? emoticon

Re: The Power of Series


I've only recently started to enjoy book series. Most of the time I wait until all the books in the series have been written before getting and reading them. I hate waiting a year or more for the next book. Sometimes I'll go ahead and buy the books, but I won't read them until I have the last book.

I've never had any ideas for a series. It seems a lot harder than writing one book. I have two projects in the thinking/plotting process that would probably work as a series, if only I could figure out how to do it. I'm just not sure I have that ability in me.

I don't know much about how a series works, or how to turn a story into a trilogy. I've been trying to figure out how to have each chapter work as a serial, so that I can sell each chapter for 99 cents ... then later on put it all into one novel to sell. Even that thought process is eluding me.

I suppose I should look for books on how to write serials & series. *shrugs* I'm sure there are different plotting strategies involved in the process than in normal writing.
