I belong to lots of on line groups and will read a blog that catches my attention. I read several telling us (writers) to write our books in a series. That’s what readers want. I’ve known lots of authors who have done well with series. They’ve built up a great following because of those books.
Then I read a blog a couple that said the word ‘series’ turns off readers. What? I did a little research and did notice several books that are part of a series had a little reminder that this was a book in blank, but they aren’t tagged as part of a series. Does that make sense? Like with my series I’d say a book in the Vespian Way.
So which is it? I’ll be honest the second one does sound a little more professional and I think it makes the book look like a stand alone even though it is part of a series, but I’m one of those readers who gets excited when I see a book in a series I’ve been reading.
I don’t ave a problem with the word series, maybe because I know that it doesn’t mean serials and I know some series are like serials where you have to read the books in order to understand what is going on.
What does he have to do to convince her?
Alicia loves working with gems but she’s not so great with people. When Maximilian requests her help to search for the Tears of the Queen she wants to say no. Those precious stones are nothing more than a legend and she doesn’t want to go on a wild goose chase.
Max needs Alicia’s help and time is of the essence. He isn’t the only one looking for the Tears and if they fall into the wrong hands, humanity could be enslaved.
Their first meeting is like mixing oil with water. They are strong, opinionated, driven and they both think they are right. The chemistry is instantaneous, a surprise to them both, and they discover that work might not be the only thing they have in common. The only problem is Max has a very big secret that he doesn’t want to share…
