Discussion: Selling Without a Series

James Eric series

Today’s topic comes from QSFer Theo Fenraven:

“Authors write series because they sell better than standalones. Unfortunately, I rarely write a series because I don’t like getting bogged down in them. I’m always anxious to move on to the next idea and set of characters. I pay the price for that; I don’t sell much.”

I love reading series, especially when it comes to Fantasy. But I don’t mind stand-alones either.

What do y’all think? As an author, would you rather write a series or a stand-alone book? And as a reader, what do you prefer to read?
