So I have been learning about this publishing process as I go along. No, it’s not easy, and yes, I’ve gotten quite a bit wrong along the way. A few of my writer friends start with a prequel that lets you whet your whistle and take the characters out for a spin so that, when the first book in a series comes out, you already know the characters a bit. And some will actually go through and create images of their characters for you to see.
Well for me, I’ve gotten most of this wrong. Or rather, done it out of sequence. The first book is out, the second book is due to be published in mere days, and I’m working on the third book. After that, I’ll work on the prequel. Sure, it won’t do you, current reader, any good. But it’ll be easier to bring people into the fold with a prequel.
But the thing that I’ve gotten somewhat right is character images. If you haven’t read either book yet, or even if you have, I invite you to head over to the Migration series character pages to meet the top five characters. Link: https://www.walterwrites.com/migration-series-characters/
