I used to think I would never write a series or a trilogy. I liked closure. I liked an entire world or experience to be contained in one complete story. I hated cliff-hangers. (Marvel movies, really? Those after credit snippets were clever marketing ploys.) I hated marketing ploys. So I wrote five standalone novels. I was satisfied.
Then I started writing my sixth novel. It was different on many levels, but I still thought it would be a standalone novel until I finished it. Suddenly I had a strange feeling: it didn’t feel finished. There was more to tell. More to discover. I realized at that moment that I had never written a sequel or series because I had previously not had the right story.
Now I do, and I’m proud to soon be releasing book one of The Forgotten Child Trilogy: A Man Too Old for a Place Too Far.
It’s on Kindle Scout until the December 1. It could use your nomination. Please use this KINDLE SCOUT LINK and read the first couple chapters of it. And if you like it, please nominate it!
