Killer Nashville 2014: Pros and Cons of
Writing a Series
This year, the four Library Pigs sit down to discuss the pros and cons of writing a series with a live audience at the 2014 Killer Nashville writer's conference. Josh discusses the authors that have managed to link their books without falling into the pitfalls of required reading, Rachel talks about companion novels and other unorthodox series, Dietrich laments the hesitation that comes with beginning a massive series, and Chris rages about the obsessive need to produce trilogies and more while standalone novels do quite well. They take a few questions from the audience regarding adaptations, series that have begun to drag, and more. We'd like to thank the entire Killer Nashville staff and volunteers for inviting us, most notably the inestimable Beth Terrell. Regular episodes will resume next week, but we hope you've enjoyed our week of Killer Nashville.
