Lynn LaFleur: Series: Love Them or Hate Them?

 I’ve written five series so far, plus other books which take place in my fictional town of Lanville, Texas. I have more series planned for the future, and more books that will take place in Lanville. I love revisiting my characters, letting my readers know what those characters are doing ever since they received a happy ending in their own books. A series lets me do that.

I enjoy reading series for the reason I mentioned above—so I can find out what some of my favorite characters are doing once their book reaches the end, or to continue to find out about their lives. I love J.D. Robb’s In Death series. What woman wouldn’t fall in love with Roarke? I feel the same about J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I would gladly steal any one of the Brotherhood from their shellans.

I’ve received so many wonderful emails and comments about my Men With Tools series from readers wanting more of my hunky Coleman triplets. I’ve incorporated Rye, Dax, and Griff into the firefighter books I’m now writing for Kensington Aphrodisia. You’ll find out more about them, plus other characters who live in Lanville, in my upcoming books.

How about you? Do you enjoy reading series, or would you rather the book and characters wrap up in one volume? I’d love your opinion. Anyone who comments will have the chance to win a print copy of my newest Kensington Aphrodisia books, Hot Shots and Smokin’ Hot!

Love them!! One side character can turn into another entire story.

I enjoy reading series because of the fun of revisiting a world, place, family, or group of characters. The continuity gives some familiarity and I get glimpses of beloved past characters.

I love series cuz I'm a glutton for characters and worlds that I enjoy :) But I do enjoy stand alones. So I guess I enjoy what the author gives me! Thanks for sharing!

I like both series & stand alone reads. If the series ends each book with a cliffhanger I MUST have the complete series in hand before I begin. Back to back reading with series is delicious fun.

I am a big series fan. When an author tells a great story I don't want that story to end. With a series and continuing appearances of characters from earlier books in the series it's almost like the story just keeps on going.

Grab me with a good first book and I'm yours for as many books as you write. From Tolkien through Eddings, from Gabaldon to LaFleur...I love a good series!

As long as a series book can stand on it's own I like them.

It's nice to feel a connection to the characters or to be part of the community.
