What are the common pitfalls in a crafting a series, the best ways to get organized and plan it? The purpose of How to Write a Novel Series is to cover all things that need to be taken into consideration when writing a series and provide a one-stop resource for the who, what, where, when and why of this monumental endeavor. This helpful guide will give writers everything they need for creating their fiction series from dealing with story arcs and keeping things focused to characters, consistency, organization and more.
I received a copy of this book yesterday and haven't had a chance to read it thoroughly, but I did take the time to glance through it, and believe me, it has everything anyone contemplating or already writing a series needs to know.
The reason the author was kind enough to have a copy sent to me is because I contributed some thoughts to the book--and I'm only one among many authors who write series.
One thing I know about Karen Wiesner is she is an author who knows how to gather information about most any writing subject and present it in the most helpful manner possible.
Highly recommended as are all of Karen's books.
