Writing a series....and what you like or don't like when you read them.

Do you enjoy series? I do too. I love them, but sometimes I find that after book 6 or maybe 7 I stop reading them. Am I the only reader out there that feels this way?

I don't blame the author. I think it's just because I'm bored with the character and their world. Okay, maybe it's the author. Don't know. Maybe it's my mood. I might want to read something fresh and new. I do get bored easily.

Usually this happens when it's a series surrounding one main character. (like I said around the 6th or 7th book) However, if the series has different main characters for each book, then I can usually read them all. Usually.

So, now that I'm planning my Vieux Carre' witch series, I want to make sure each book stand on their own, and have threads that are completely different, but they will still keep the same theme, and you will see each sister in all the books. But only the main character will have the camera on them, and their journey.

I can't wait until Saturday. I'll be taking notes on Barbara's, Candace's and Pam's advice. I want to know what to watch out for, like writing yourself into a corner and not being able to change things in the next book or getting stuck with something maybe you would have done differently - like not killing someone off. lol

Happy reading y'all!

Sola's April meeting presenters are - Candice Proctor (C S Harris), Agent Pam Ahearn & Barbara Colley

When our regular speaker had to cancel due to a conflict in her schedule, my co-program partner, Pamela Kopfler went to work right away and found a wonderful speaker or shall I say speaker(s) for Sola's April meeting. It's going to be fab!

Candace Proctor (w/a C.S. Harris), Agent Pam Ahearn, and Barbara Colley all agreed to be on a panel to discuss, WRITING A SERIES. This couldn't be better timing for me because I'm about to dive into my second book in my Vieux Carre' Witch Series. (which I'm already plotting) So thank you, Pamela!

Show up early because space is limited. April 16th @ 10:00am

Today I'm pimping a reader's blog...

An avid reader of paranormal romance is hosting Author Month in April over at Were Vamps Romance blog. A “few” of her guests for April are - Gena Showalter, Cynthia Eden, Dianna Love, Carly Phillips, Sherriyln Kenyon, Nicole Peeler, etc. and then there is little ole’ me. (I’m up today. Yay!) lol. Other than author interviews, prizes, and reviews – Melissa is just super sweet and refreshing. (I made her sound like a soft drink. lol) Come on by and comment.

See y'all there,
Dawn Chartier
