Hi everyone!!  

I had previously signed up for, and stated earlier this week, that I would be participating in the High Summer Read-A-Thon, hosted by Michelle from  Seasons Of Reading  and  The True Book Addict.  However, the reason why there is no progress sticky post is, and I am embarrassed to say, that I haven’t even opened a book this week.  Real Life has interfered but this is something that I am truly excited about.  On Sunday, I announced that my son, Mark, proposed to his gf, Jess.   Well….they will be home tomorrow, they live out of state..5 hours away, and leaving on Sunday.  Since all their friends want to see them, including Steve and I, because he hasn’t been home since Xmas, we thought that we would have a pool party Saturday so that everyone can come here.  I have been extremely busy preparing for that plus have been busy with Partners In Crime Tours.  Hopefully I will get back on track with my reading starting next week.

Today’s question:
A while ago, I interviewed my readers for a change, and my final question was, “What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask?” I got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.
Vampira2468 asks:
Series or Stand-alone?

My answer:
Both!  However, with a series, I like it if it can also be read as a stand-alone.  My opinion, that if that can be accomplished, that is some great writing.

What about you?  Series or Stand-alone?

  1. The pool party sounds like so much fun! Enjoy your company!

  2. Both are great, but if I had to pick one I would say stand alone because I’ve found that some authors get so caught up in planning an entire series at once, before their first book is even completed, that their work ends up suffering from being rushed through to publish additional volumes as quickly as possible. My favorite series tend to be ones where it’s one book at a time no real set plans for subsequent installments.
