How to Write a Series

Sara Rossett delivers a straightforward book on how to write a series and does it with style and in a fun way. This isn't like reading a textbook. 

She gives you the pros and cons of the options and lets the author decide what's best for them and their readers. It really comes down to the readers' expectations and how the author sets themselves up for success to meet them. 

An excellent resource for authors.
