Starting a Series
There’s only one thing more exciting than starting a new story, and that’s starting a new series. I’m the kind of person who adores making lists and collages, so piecing together a four book series made me a happy girl!
I’ve been carrying around a red leather bound notebook for some time now, filled with ideas for my “Montana” series. Writing the first book was a wonderful experience for me, and the best part is that I have three more books planned, all to be released this year.
Writing a series is harder than writing a stand alone book, and it forced me to have an overarching plan for each couple right from the start. Although only one of the major secondary characters features in this story, I’ve mentioned almost all the other characters in passing. I guess in many ways this book wasn’t just Jack and Maddison’s story – it was the set up for the following three books too.
As an author, I’m equal parts thrilled and terrified of writing a series. As a reader? I love them, no questions asked. And to be honest, that’s one of the reasons I wanted to write a series, because readers often email me asking about sequels, and I wanted to be able to say a big “hell yes!” when they asked about this book.
So do you like reading a series rather than a stand alone book? I’d love you to tell me a series you’ve read lately that you’ll be adding to your “keeper” shelf. If you share, I’ll enter you in the draw to win a free kindle edition of Montana Reunion
