Quality: Are Readers Asking For Too Much Now?
After months and months of observation, I always wonder in the back of my mind as an author if I'm giving my readers enough in the stories I create.
I've come to the honest conclusion that there is no magic solution to satisfy every reader that tries your work. It's simply not a feat to be attained; we all have different tastes for that very reason.
Variety is still the spice of life. (No pun intended against my novel, "Spices of Life" I promise.)
With that being said, there are still some that are brave enough to push the literary envelope within the short story world and series realms.
Are authors short-changing readers with short stories? How many are too many in a series? What if the readers enjoy the quick, sweet reads in between waiting for a full-length novel from an author they adore? There are less reviews and more complaints about rushed story lines, lack of character development, price gauging and horrific editing (if any at all.)
To add another layer to the conversation, are the readers demanding more of the characters and what they bring to the series at hand? How do you say no and end a good thing that has gone on for a while? When is enough truly enough?
This is only scratching the surface and rest
