Great list of tips for writing a series, Camille. This was another lesson from the master.

This is a terrific list. I can relate to every item. Have you thought about writing a how-to book for aspiring mystery writers?

As to tip #10: I'm considering marrying my protagonist to her long-suffering fiancee in book 4. I haven't decided for sure, but I find marriage interesting (having been married to three different men). Deborah Crombie's protagonists are a husband/wife team and Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache has a long, stable marriage. Thanks for rattling my cage and priming me for my own blog post on Friday.

Ngaio Nash and others also made marriage work. I'm sure you can do it! It's not so much that marriage is uninteresting -- it's weddings that are dull!

I've done weddings in 2 series, but both had murders attached!
