The Beauty... and Perils... of Writing a Series

 

Hey everyone! I’m Kris T. Bethke, and I’m here to talk about series.

I love them. Like a lot. I love to read them, love to watch couples facing new dilemmas and trials while still being together, love to watch new couples find their happily ever after. Reading series is a true joy for me, and I’m more likely to pick up a book if I know there’s going to be more in the world that’s been created.

I love to write series too. It never fails that, when I’m writing, the secondary characters talk to me, wanting their own books. While I have written a bunch of single titles, the truth is, even in most of them, I want to write more with secondary characters.

The Requiem Inc. series gave me that opportunity. From the moment I started penning Ghost of a Chance, I knew Sam and Michael needed a book too. I was so certain of it, in fact, that I wasn’t worried about putting in hints and clues to their feelings for each other in the first book. When I got the go ahead to write Lost Souls Found, I was thrilled.

But just because I have characters talking to me, wanting their own books, doesn’t mean that it’s easy. There are pitfalls I had to work hard to avoid. Because while, yes, it’s a series with a common theme, I had to be careful not to repeat the same story I’ve already told. I wrote that book, readers read it, and we all want something new. In a series like Requiem Inc., I also had to work at including enough information that each book can work on it’s own, while not repeating too much information so that readers who have read them don’t feel like I’m just covering the same territory. It’s a fine line to walk, and not an easy one, but it’s a challenge I enjoyed.

Lost Souls Found is out now, and it’s the second book in the series. But it’s different than the first. Sam and Michael’s relationship is a far cry from Blake and Derek’s. That was the fun in it for me. To jump back into the world of ghostwalkers, anchors, and Guardians, but to tell Sam and Michael’s story. There are new elements explored, and a totally different dynamic.

I love this series—it’s close to my heart for a lot of different reasons—and Lost Souls Found showcases why. Sam and Michael have a lot to work through before they get to their happy. Especially Michael. And Sam needs to learn just how far he’s willing to bend without compromising himself. I adore these guys together, and I’m so exciting they’re out in the world. I think they make a great addition to the series, and set the basis of what’s to come without taking the focus from their relationship.

What do you think? Do you love series as much as I do? What works for you about them? Let me know! I’d love to hear your opinions.

Blurb:

Dying is all in a day’s work. Love is more dangerous.

Ghostwalker Sam Jones has been half in love with Michael King since he started working at Requiem Inc. But Michael is his boss and a Guardian, to boot. Sam thinks they could make it work anyway, but Michael uses his position and his age to keep Sam at arm’s length.

When Sam continues to volunteer for the most dangerous cases, Michael has to intervene. He tells himself he’s just doing his job, but he’s always seen Sam as more than another operative, and he can’t bear the thought of not taking his chance. The connection between them has been strong from the beginning, and Michael’s telepathy adds unexpected depth and an edge to their new romance, but working together while they try to build their relationship might be the hardest part of their job if they don’t make some sacrifices.

 

Author Bio:

Kris T. Bethke has been a voracious reader for pretty much her entire life and has been writing stories for nearly as long.  An avid and prolific daydreamer, she always has a story in her head.  She spends most of her free time reading, writing, or knitting/crocheting her latest project.  Her biggest desire is to find a way to accomplish all three tasks at one time.  A classic muscle car will always turn her head, and naps on the weekend are one of her greatest guilty pleasures.  She lives in a converted attic with a way too fluffy cat and the voices in her head.  She’ll tell you she thinks that’s a pretty good deal. Kris believes that love is love, no matter the gender of people involved, and that all love deserves to be celebrated.
