Over the course of the last few months, I’ve started two very different series.
Wandering Off the Path begins my Bound By Fairytale series, which will be a collection of retold fairytales with a bondage element. Unlike a lot of other series, these stories don’t revolve around the same set of characters but instead around a similar setting. The deep dark woods. Though I didn’t set out to turn this story into a series, after I wrote Wandering Off the Path I couldn’t help but come up with other fairytales I wanted to reimagine. Now I have another three books planned in this series, but if more ideas come to me, I’ll be happy to write more.
Reunion Makes Three is the first book in my new Snowedin Fantasies series. This series takes place in or around the same town, Snowedin, VT. A town based off the area of Vermont where I grew up. The series was inspired by my high school reunion, and all the stories that might be going on there. I’ll be revisiting several of the characters and many of the same places in the stories to follow. Unlike my Bound by Fairytales series, I always intended to spend at least a little while in this fictional ski town, but even with a few prepared ideas, Snowedin has definitely grown beyond what I originally planned. The more I explore Snowedin the more stories I find I want to tell. I could certainly see myself spending quite a bit of time in this sexually charged small town.
I’m thinking of trying out a few different kinds of series in the future, if I can ever get out from under the mountain of stories already fighting for time on my laptop. Maybe following one specific couple for several stories or following an entire family for multiple generations, but for right now I’m really excited to spend some more time exploring these two new worlds.
But what do you all think? Do you like series? What kind are your favorites? What would you like to see more of?
