Thursday Thoughts: Universal Connections

As most of you know, I’m really big on series–reading them and writing them. The best series, to me, include lots of connections. This is obvious in my Moonstruck world. I have three series set there, plus stand-alone books that might or might not be set in another author’s world with connections to that writer’s characters. I also include connections to characters in my other series. And as the Universe points out, when all those connecting lines and inciting incidents, all those interconnected plot points and relationships all come together, yeah. It’s pretty fantastic. And romantic. 😉

Have you stopped to consider that it’s life’s “disconnects,” “almosts,” and “not quites,” Silver, that make life’s “connections,” “gotchas,” and “eurekas” so fantastically romantic?

Good, because they were your idea.

Silver, you make my heart sing.

The interesting thing is? All those connections work in real life too. All the ins and outs, the coincidental meetings, the friends of friends. They’re like the notes and words to a familiar song that we all know the words to. On that note, 10 points to the reader who gets the Universe’s connection to classic rock. 😉

  1. Heh. That’s a fav here in the house, but only because we call pileated woodpeckers ‘Wild Thing’. You know, because they’re so prehistorical looking. And I sing ‘Wild thing, you make my suet swing.’ Yeah, we’re kinda weird that way.

    Connections. I love how you connect your books. You keep it all interesting and stuff, so your series are interconnected without being repetitive. It’s like little visits from old friends here and there.

    JC once pointed out that I reference genies in my other books. That was unintentional, but it seems cool, so I’m running with ‘I meant to do that’. And it kind of makes me want to give the genies a cameo in the Sleeping Ugly stories. If I can do it without it being lame, I will.

    And I’m so glad I connected with you all those years ago. That’s one connection that’s definitely made my life richer. =o)

  2. My mom is probably pulling out her 45’s and turning that song up with universe words of wisdom. lol
    To me connecting of book series, is that you dont really say goodbye to the characters, that have become such a part of you as a reader.
    And you might get a glimpse of a previous character in a different light.
    You weave the series together like only you can😊
    Have a great day.
