After publishing six standalone novels, I'm finally ready to write a series!
The two or three of you who read my blog may have questions, so here's an FAQ:
1. What about The Driver Series? Doesn't that count? It even says "Series" in the name!
Yes, that's technically a series, but it's a series of short stories. My new series will be one in the more traditional sense in that each book will be a full length novel. I learned a good deal about writing a series from The Driver Series, so let's call it the warmup for what I'm planning to write.
2. What is the new series about?
I haven't figured out all of the details, but it will be a YA Fantasy series.
3. How many books will be in the series?
Right now, it looks like the story will take three books to complete, so it will be a trilogy... unless it's not.
4. When will it be published?
I've just begun the outlining stage, so it's too early to tell. Given that it usually takes me about a year to write a novel, the series may not be finished for three more years! However, I'm hoping it'll take less time than that since it'll be like writing one long continuous story broken into three parts.
5. Will you publish anything else while working on the series?
I'm glad you asked! I will publish at least one more book in the meantime because there's a YA story currently in the hands of beta readers. That book will likely be released in a couple of months. After that, it's hard to say. At a minimum, I'll continue to post to Wattpad, especially as part of my project, A Spoonful of Stories.
