Our latest class is here: Win Readers: Plan And Write A Bestselling Series Of Novels.
Self-publishing used to be relatively simple. That’s no longer so. I’m thrilled with this new class, because it will give hope to those authors whose careers are floundering.
Today, you need to do everything you can to sell as an indie publisher. That starts with writing, always. Moreover, it means writing your novels in series.
When readers love a novel, they want to read the entire series
I’m a huge mystery fan. I adore most types of mysteries, but I’m especially keen on historical mysteries, like Ellis Peters’ Brother Cadfael series. Not only do I adore them, I glom onto them, reading every novel in the series.
So, imagine my delight when I discovered Ann Swinfen. She’s a lovely author, and I read every novel in two of her series, and started on her other novels. Then I received a shock… Ann Swinfen passed away last year. Sadly, her two most popular series will never be completed.
I’m very grateful to all the authors whose books I’ve loved. Like many readers, I have a favorite series or two, and I read those series again and again.
Writing your novels in series starts with planning
Yes, you need to plan your series, as I discovered:
Before I consistently planned my series, I’d write a short story, which grew into a novel, then into a series. Or I’d start a novel, and at around the midpoint, I’d get a burst of inspiration: “What if I turned this into a series?”
Sometimes this unplanned series-writing process worked. Mostly, it didn’t. I’d hit a point in the series where I had nowhere else to go; without an over-arching series’ plot, I was all out of inspiration and creative energy.
We focus on plotting your series, and much more, in this new class. I hope that you enjoy Win Readers: Plan And Write A Bestselling Series Of Novels — and that it helps you to sell more books.
Class begins on February 4.
Join us — we’ll have a lot of fun with this class.
