Saying Goodbye…to a Series
I just had a sniffle or two—not over anything earth shattering. It’s just over my latest book release, but that’s odd for me. I tend to be a person whose favorite book is the one I’m working on at the moment. I like endings—generally. They mean that I can move on to new challenges. This ending feels a little different, even though it’s over a set of stories. Perhaps that’s what it is. This is my first true serial series. I’ve done a story or two that hang together in the past, but not five of them.
I think the muse has grown silent on inspiring new Delia Daugherty serials, for now anyway. I wasn’t sure how long they’d go on in the first place. Who knows what the future might hold?
“Ghosts of the Past,” #5 in the set, was just published with lovely cover art by Barrymore Tebbs, and I feel it’s the end of an era. Sometimes you just know…for the next few months anyway. 🙂
The omnibus is coming in August, hopefully. You’ll be able to buy the collection of all five.
Anyone else here had this sort of feeling over a series in art or writing? I’d love to hear about it.
