Chat Between Chapters: Books that totally should have had a spin-off series

Chat Between Chapters: Books that totally should have had a spin-off series

 Let’s chat about the books that totally should have had a spin-off series  Julie: Most of the books and the world I’ve loved ended up having spin-offs, which is fantastic and fun. I love when I don’t have to leave a beloved world behind. Here are some books that could use some more stories in the same world, even if with new characters. The world Charley Davidson lives in. I realize Charley is a special goddess and what not, but there are other factors at play and I’m sure there could be other characters with special abilities or clairvoyance that… Read more »

Chat About Covers: The Inheritance

Chat About Covers: The Inheritance

  We’re starting a new feature here on Chapter Break called Chat About Covers. ‘Cause you know we all judge books by covers, whether we admit it or not. We judge the style, the color and font choices, and just the overall look. That might not keep us from reading the book, but we do still judge.   So we have a book about a haunted house, right? Check, the house is on the cover. Ok so actually I kind of like the creepy light that actually looks like it is physically sticking out of the house. That’s a cool… Read more »

Chat Between Chapters: Types of Books we are Ridiculously Addicted to

Chat Between Chapters: Types of Books we are Ridiculously Addicted to

 Let’s chat about the Types of Books we are Ridiculously Addicted to!  Julie: I’m addicted to well-written, exciting, bite-sized paranormals. That’s pretty much everything I read.  I want it to be past-paced. I want excitement. I want some sizzly romance. And I want them to be “bite-sized” meaning no 500-page books that draw out the plot forever. Get to the point, get to it in an interesting way, and make me want more of the characters. Some examples of series I have enjoyed and have been ridiculously addicted to: Charley Davidson series Dragon’s Gift and spin-offs Soul Screamers series   Lynn: There’s a… Read more »
