When I started to write my first fantasy book, I had no idea whether it would be one book or multiple. Given the fantasy genre lends itself to multi-book stories, I had hopes that my imagination would last ... and it did. Unlike the type of series where each book is a standalone chapter in the main character's life, The Gifted is one story broken into four parts. That's alot of content and details to remember from book to book; even I can't remember all the details I finally decided to include from one book to the next. What did this mean for each book? Carry over.
In the following posts, I share what I have learned from writing The Gifted. I do not profess to be the expert but if my experiences help you get started or get over a rough stop, then I am happy to share.
