Before You Write Anything...
Okay. So you have decided to write a book. And publish it. You're brainstorming ideas. Before you start outlining, you need to ask yourself the question: Am I writing a series or a single book?
Series v. Singles
Readers like to get to know characters. They like to come back and learn more about the world they have come to know. They are also statistically more likely to invest their time reading a book that they know has more coming.
Single books can work, too. You typically need a very strong theme. The possibility of adding to it later doesn't hurt either.
