  1. Well, I’m working on a series, ‘Tales of the Navel/The Shadow Forest’. I’ve got rough drafts for three books in need of revision. I plan to write three more, tentatively. One of the key factors in deciding if I want to continue a series or not is whether or not I still have stories to tell about the characters or the world in a particular book, or series of books. Or even a series of short stories or novellas. A series can take on many forms. More may appear that we haven’t considered yet as the world of fiction continues to change and evolve.
