With all the books coming out now, stand alone novels seem to be taking a back seat to series. Some would say novella’s set in a series are more preferable to a full length novel.
I understand there may be financial benefits to writing as a series, however, as a reader, it had been my experience that things tend to get boring. Especially with a series with 5+ books in them. Things just tend to be on repeat and well, who wouldn’t get bored.
Since I have started writing, I have found myself debating a lot on whether I would want to do a series or make my project a standalone. My first project will be set in a series, and a historical romance I have been planning as a series, but each novel will hopefully be full length.
I am curious to know some of ya’lls preferences. Whether you are an author or just a reader, do you prefer stand alone books or series?
