About the Workshop

Once a reader finds a writer they enjoy and can count on for a “good read,” they tend to read that writer “in depth,” meaning they read everything else he or she has written. Writing a series builds loyalty among readers and sends them back hungry for additional stories featuring the same characters. That increases sales and keeps writers writing, so …

If you are writing a novel, or thinking about writing one, and you think it has the potential to be a series, this workshop is for you. Learn how to craft characters, continuing relationships, and settings that resonate with readers. Whether your book is a mystery/thriller, fantasy, historical, romance or any other genre, it’s important to plan a sustainable world of interesting characters, settings and opportunities for conflict that work for not just one, but potentially a dozen books…or more!

Build your own “Series Mind Map” and participate in free-writes.
