So my hubby brought up a good question this week. In popular fiction there seems to be a lot of push for authors who have had a hit book to make it into a series, usually a long going series.
Most popular books are not stand alone anymore. Even if the book was a stand alone, say like Gone With The Wind, if they can’t get the author to write a sequel then they have someone else do it.
I mean really are there those of us who are satisfied with the stand alones that the story just ends and you don’t have to keep buying books to keep up with the series.
What do you think you would rather read more often series or stand alone?
Right now I have started so many series I love but wish sometimes the series didn’t go on forever (like Piers Anthony’s Xanth’s series, Sookie Stackhouse series, etc)I am also hoping the new J.K. Rowling is a stand alone but that may be decided on how much money it makes which is not a good reason to start a series.
