The Art of the Sequel

Part 2: Continuity Within a Series

With workshop leader, Chuck Bowie

Multi-series author Chuck Bowie continues his workshop on writing sequels which he began last year at WordSpring 2023 in Saint John. Last year, he identifiedthe elements of a series versus those of a novel, citing two different series to illustrate areas of commonality as well as differences. 

This time, Chuck will talk about the novel you’ve already written or are writing. Does it appear that a sequel (or more) is in order? What should you know, in order to keep a series on track and attractive to the reader? Chuck will work with you to ensure continuity from book to book.
