There is something *squee* about getting a review that says you lost a star for the book not being longer. Obviously, I'm doing something right.

For anyone curious -- yes, there will be at least two sequels (assuming Murphy doesn't manage to curse the story).

I had wanted to make this a full novel, but the wider plotlines weren't coming together in my head so I went with what I had.

But really, Sir John deserves a turn in the spotlight, don't you think?

@jessmahler haha, this was my issue with Bound, too. I liked that it was a light, short read but at the same time, I wanted it to go on! I guess sequels are the best of both worlds lol.


In hindsight, with more experience with the serial format, I could/should have made Bound just 'season 1' and figured out what came next later.

But it was really the first serial I ever wrote (Planting Life posted at the same time, but the first season was mostly written before I got the idea to do serials). So since I had no clue what next, I designated it a 1 season story and wrapped it up.

Ah well. Live and learn, yes?

@jessmahler that makes perfect sense! I like how it gives you the choice whether to continue or stop, too.
