Writing a Series: it's just like coming home - Short Course
We are told publishers love a series. Readers do too. This course with multi-award winning author Janet Gover looks at all the S words - series, sequel, and standalone. They are not so far apart as they might seem. We'll look at how to create a series arc as well and a character arc. How to give your reader that feeling of coming home to family and old friends every time they pick up one of your books. Practical issues such as keeping a series bible and ensuring consistency will sit alongside discussions of what readers and publishers are looking for and how to meet those expectations. Exercises and Q&A sessions will help you craft your series.
A work in progress - but it need not be finished.
