So The Famous Author's various agents are hard at work, he says, but I'm beginning to worry about my future. Let's face it, most series characters die after a few novels. The old days of giving characters half a dozen episodes to build an audience are over. The competition's too tough. Hundreds of new titles are published every month, and that's just crime fiction.
But I think what really worries me is the shear number of fascinating books. I mean, why would anybody pick TFA's tales about a stockbroker with such examples of pure entertainment out there -- these first two books are out-selling BIG MONEY and BIG NUMBERS, like, ten to one:
The subtitle on this second one is Manage the Cognitive Challenges of Multiple Sclerosis.
It's depressing, right? And this third book ... it's out-selling us without even being published yet.
Looks kind of interesting though, doesn't it?
