Maintaining Integrity of a Series (SPP 128)
Let’s say you hit it out of the ballpark with your first book in a series. How do you follow that up? Do you up the ante? (Bigger and badder action!) How to you make sure the series doesn’t jump the shark or (worse) just fizzle out?
This week, the guys talked about how to continue a series and make sure it stays awesome.
They had the topic on their mind because Sean and Dave just finished Yesterday’s Gone Season 5, and there was a lot of pressure to keep the series interesting and just as addictive as the earlier seasons were.
They have a lot of cool stuff to share about this. Even if you’re not continuing a series (yet), there is a lot of good info here.
