Synopsis: The definitive guide to crafting a series!

From the Hunger Games Trilogy to the Jack Reacher series, from Harry Potter to Harry Dresden, there's no denying that writers--and readers--have caught series fever. But if you're contemplating writing a series, there are plenty of considerations you'll need to make first. Writing the Fiction Series is the complete guide to ensuring your series stays hot after the first, fourth, or even fifteenth book.

Inside, you'll learn how to:

   • Write a series that captures the hearts of readers and stands out in a sea of competition.
   • Find the focus of your series, develop your idea, and plan ahead.
   • Hone in on the two most important aspects of series writing: characters and consistency.
   • Utilize a variety of series organization techniques, complete with downloadable worksheets and checklists.
   • Market your series effectively and increase your sales.


With insights from nearly 100 series authors and publishers, as well as "Grow Your Series Muscles" exercises, Writing the Fiction Series is the only book you'll need to write a series that sizzles.
