A Challenge For New Authors
One of the things you’ll learn very quickly as a new indie author, especially in fiction, is that you’ll need to write a series. While you may have that next Great American Novel sitting on your laptop that you think will change the world, the reality is that in today’s marketplace it’s the series that is king.
Because of this, many writers have specifically invented narratives that can be told across at least three books or more.
For someone those who never considered that route before but still want to make a living as an indie author, this proves to be somewhat of a challenge. How do I concept this series? How will it sell? How can I appeal to a genre but at the same time stand out enough that people will select my series to read?
These are all questions that indie writer KC Hunter will attempt to tackle while he takes us on this journey through creating his first series Kana Cold.
