I have officially published 21 ebooks. However, it dawned on me recently that I just published the eleventh Dreams novel. Eleven of them… and people still pay me to read them. That’s just mind-blowing.
And it makes me worry. Every series I have ever loved has hit a point where I stopped reading them because I got bored with them. I’m wondering if I will know when I have hit that point with my own series.
How many books can actually exist in the Dreams and Reality series before it begins loosing readers? I try to have plots for each book and then large subplots that cover several books. The Butcher covered the first six. Mutilated Dreams started the new large subplot that was revealed to the readers in Fortified Dreams. I figure that will take several books to get through. But when that plot is finished?
Each book I worry that I’ve gone too far. Or reached that point where the series has nothing left that’s new and unique.
This is true for every series I write. I constantly worry about the next book and a series overall. I realized it with the Strachan Series. However, I have more attachment to the Dysfunctional Chronicles and the Dreams & Reality series, which makes me worry that I won’t see that line racing towards me.
This is one of things writers worry about.
