One Fictitious Moment: Writing a Series

By Angela Misri­, author of Jewel of the Thames

Writing in a series is very different than writing a stand-alone novel. A stand-alone has its own benefits and issues – like that you have a limited time to tell an entire story and getting people to fall in love with your characters over a mere 80k words. But when you’re writing a series there are definitely things to keep in mind – check out my latest video to find out more!

  • I wish I’d thought to make a “series bible” as I went along to keep all of my characters’ details straight! (though… I didn’t set out intended to write a series, so I’m forgiving myself this time, haha. But NEXT time…) Readers DEFINITELY notice! (Though it helps to have beta readers who are very detail-oriented. I caught most of my consistency mistakes that way.)
