Writing Group / Stand alone novels vs series, and first time publication.
« on: January 30, 2008, 12:14:02 PM »
I'm somewhat conflicted. I feel that I have an idea that I would enjoy writing, and would potentially sell well, and would really like to pursue it. However, the story I have in mind is not one that I feel could be told well with only a single novel, at least without reaching a ridiculous length.

I don't know a whole lot about the publishing world, and having a book published, though I do know the bare basics, and what I do know makes me pause before I begin writing in earnest. I don't want to hurt my chances of being published by my first work being only the first part of the story.

Does it hurt my chances? Or ultimately, if the book was worth being published, it would happen, first portion of a trilogy  or not?
