To series or not to series? #Romance #Writing

I never thought I’d be a series writer.  Do you know how much pressure there is on writing a second book in a line? A lot. When I wrote Midwife to Destiny I thought it would be a single book. And then my editor casually mentioned that I should think about a second book.

Of course once planted, the idea sprouted and then grew. I ended up with the tree of Destiny Mine. The story of Ora’s cousin, Esi. She was so much fun to write in Midwife to Destiny. Spunky, adventuresome, and a tad bit over the top. I paired her with Adam, Jason’s best friend. Adam is an alpha to the core. Worse, he can’t stand being involved in relationships, in other words he’s a player.

When I put these two characters together there were fireworks. Enough for me to leave the sweet subgenre of romance and venture into opening the door to the bedroom.

Writing the Destiny Series was one of the best things I’ve ever done and I’m glad I didn’t let fear of being a flop stop me. In fact it spurred me on.The third in the series, Entwined Destiny, is due to hit the bookstores soon. So keep a look out.

Are you a series writer? Did you start the book knowing you would be?


  1. Congratulations, Nana dear. You've really done so well and I am so happy for you.

    My work in progress though, nor completed will likely be the beginning of a series since I already have a story mapped out for one of the characters..

    1. Thanks Celestine. I can't wait to read it. At least you know it's a series going in. That way you can plan, like you're already doing.


I love reading your comments.
