Happy 10-11-12, everyone! On such a sequential day, an agent’s mind naturally turns to thoughts of series. Book series, that is. Like the recent release of Super, the second book in Matthew Cody‘s kid superhero series that started with Powerless. And The Madness Underneath, the second book in Maureen Johnson‘s Shades of London series, for which I just received galleys. (Envy me!) And of course, the forthcoming sequel to Bad Taste in Boys, Bad Hair Day by Carrie Harris. So many great series!
And then, in my bountiful free time, I’m also reading George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series, having recently finished book three, and needing a bit of a break before I tackle book four. Which brings me to the question portion of today’s blog. Do you need for an entire series to be available before you tackle book one, or are you happy to take them one at a time as they’re published? Or would you prefer authors quit writing series altogether, and went back to standalone books? Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
