What Can I Say I am a BOOK WORM!!!

Ok so I definitely learned something yesterday.  Write about sex and anyone will read what you have to say.  So many people read my posting but how many read it because of what it said and how many it read because of the title, tags or the fact that it had sex in it.  I’m just curious because it makes me wonder. How do I follow that up?

But not just this one, anything.  How do authors come up with the next book in a series? How do they keep writing stories that make you want to keep picking up the books?  Some of the authors, that I enjoy,  write in the same series but instead of writing the same character they write from different character’s prospective.  In some ways I reKatie MacAlisterally like that, you never get tired of reading how the same person gets stuck in the same situation.  But in other ways I really want to know what’s going on with the original character.

Katie MacAlister as done something interesting, she has written about a “world*” and writes four books following this character through it.  Then she has switched and is writing about another character going through this same “world*”, while still interacting some with the previous character so that you know a little bit about what’s going on with the first character she wrote about.

I love series books because I get so involved in the characters that I that I get really into the world around them and through a series I get to see more and more into that world.  What can I say I am a BOOK WORM!!!!

* = I say world because I don’t know how better to phrase it.
