Sticking with the Series

After much soul-searching, er, reading, I decided to stick with the next set of trilogies for Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel series. Basically, this interview series answered some of my objections and made me believe that the next book was worth the commitment.

Part One
Part Two
Part Three

Thanks, Writer Unboxed, for posting this.

By the way, if that series wasn't enough to convince you to read WU, they have Donald Maass there this week. What are you still doing reading this? Get over there.
(By the by, his Breakout Novel Workshop is simply amazing. He really pushed my writing to a new level.)

Ah... you are getting ahead of me with these. I'm about 1/2 way through the third one of the first trilogy and will likely take a break before going on to the next set. They are good, but all those 700 pagers... yipes

I haven't grabbed it yet, but I do want to. As I read the interview, she pinpointed exactly why I wasn't as interested in continuing the series and how the next set is different. It's the first time an author interview had done that for me.
