Writing series can be a great way to level up your author career, create a more stable writing income, and create a devoted fanbase. It's also challenging, and can be overwhelming if you're not prepared. Series authors need to consider many things that standalone title authors don't have to worry about. And everything is exponentially more complex once you're tackling more than one book! You might be wondering:
- What kind of series should I write?
- Which details do I need to keep track of?
- How much advance planning should I do?
- Is publishing strategy different for a series vs standalone titles?
- How can I get the most bang for my buck in marketing and promotion?
Experienced series author Crystal Hunt will help you answer all these questions and more with this combination strategy manual and exercises that will get you applying what you've learned to your own series project.
Whether you're a seasoned series author, or just starting to explore your options and thinking a series might be a good next step for you, this book can help you write and publish your series smarter from ideas through publication and promotion!
This is the third book in the Creative Academy Guides for Writers series. Be sure to check out the rest of the guides for writers in this series.

Wellll as all the new knowledge in setting up an author brand.
A lot of things that she wrote technically in her book I understand but doubted my feeling of How I can get everything I need done. This is the best refer guide I have read or studied so far. I' m a new unpublishedF author. Crystal's book gives me .ore faith if I follow each step she laid out I will be a success.
But no one is telling you how to do that or what's important – until now!
Author Crystal Hunt not only has her own successful series well underway, she's one of the most strategic, analytical, clear and organized indie publishing teachers out there. You will find everything you need to get started on writing, publishing and selling that successful book series right here. She's gathered information, tried it and tested it, and taken the time to weed out the junk from the jewels. A unique, timely and exceptional resource for indie authors.

😡Maybe the author knows to plot a book, but definitely not a series. No way. She just took a few articles and made this book up.
😡This Book has a few definitions about the various types of series and that the writer have to keep track of the characters and places from 1st book to the last book .
😡Anyone with common sense already know that.
😡In chapter 'Create your series arc', the author recommends that we buy a book called 'plot whisperer' by Martha Alderson to know more about series arcs. Really? So I bought one book to get a book recommend of name of another book on the same subject? Somebody tell me this is a joke.
😡But since I had already invested so much time and money I foolishly bought the recommended book 'plot whisperer' and guess what? It doesn't have info about plotting series arcs. It is a basic book on plotting and has nothing on series arcs. Money wasted again. How unlucky can one get.
😡Conclusion: I consider myself as one who know very little about series's. But even I could easily write a much better book about 'how to create a series'. That too with apt examples from well known books and films.
😡I wish I could return this useless piece of a book. I lost my 6 dollars, that's nearly 500 rupees in my country.
😡😡😡😡SAVE YOUR MONEY , READ ARTICLES AND WATCH YOUTUBE VIDEOS ON WRITING A BOOK SERIES.
😡 THIS BOOK CONTAINS A FEW DEFINITIONS ON DIFFERENT TYPES OF SERIES( which can be learned by a single Google search) . THATS IT. NOTHING PRACTICAL. NO EXAMPLES OF OF WELL KNOWN BOOKS. NOW NOTHING . RUN MY BROTHER. RUN
