A New Kind of Series

In this new world of ePublishing, there are now three kinds of series. Single Character (like Harry Potter and Stephanie Plum), Traditional (where a strong secondary character from the prior book becomes the hero/heroine/protagonist of the next book) and the newest series-type often referred to as a Trope Series.

A morphed spin-off from old-school “publisher’s lines”, a Trope Series is a series of books by the same author that all have something in common, in addition to genre and setting.

Here’s some successful Trope Series: The Inconvenient Brides Series by Sharon Ihle, Adrienne deWolfe’s Wild Texas Nights Series, and Susan King’s newest Trope Series: The Celtic Nights.
