The Writing a Series bundle caters to authors who are trying to plan out their book series...without losing their minds! Some story ideas simply can't be contained to a single novel, but when finishing a single book is such a challenge in its own right, the prospect of writing an entire series can seem daunting. Keeping track of your storylines, creating compelling character arcs, and maintaining an engaging pace are just a few of the challenges an author might encounter when working on a long-term project like a series. With this bundle, you can save 91% on essential wisdom from published, best-selling series-writing authors spanning the Mystery/Thriller to YA genres. Your book ideas might seem grand, but that doesn't mean they're unattainable; learn how to write the series today!
