Trilogies vs character series vs themed series.

For those of you who have perused my website to check out my books, you'll already know that I write standalone novels and serialized books. When I started, I never wanted to write a series. They take a long time. I have so many story ideas that I felt I might be trapped in one world. But when I began writing sci-fi, it wasn't a choice anymore.

As I am typing this, the cat is trying to sit on top of me and the dog at the same time. We’ve finally developed a routine, though the cat still doesn’t quite know boundaries.
