This is something new we (myself along with Born to Read Books) are doing new this year. It's where we ask...wtf about something that's bothering us. Fun right! So here is what I want to talk about today.
Should books be written in series or should series be written in trilogies?
I ask this question because an author that I enjoy just recently wrote on her Facebook page how the series she starts with one publisher is now ending with another publisher.
It seems that the publisher who started the series decided they didn't want to publish any more books with only two books left. Thankfully another publisher picked her up but this really pisses me off.
It makes it really hard to invest in series when you never know if you get all the books promised in the series.
So my question is to you, should books in a series be written like trilogies. You know, three books at a time, never adding too much so if it ends you don't feel like you are missing anything. Or do you think that only certain authors could pull this off and the rest will leave us with a weak series?
I'd really love to hear your thoughts on this one.
