Guest Post--> Series vs Standalone & Tips to authors for promotion of their books by Lan LLP + Giveaway

Hey Friends,

I was very fortunate to ask Lan LLP, the author of Beginning with Forever, questions that had me wondering for sometime. I asked her the below questions and she was very sweet in sharing her thoughts with me.

Q. Series writing vs standalone book writing- Pros and Cons according to you.

I personally love series. Readers get so invested in your story that they want to continue following the same couple until they find their HEA. Series allow a writer to dive into the characters’ history, making the story more interesting. The cons about a series are: readers hate waiting for the next one to be completed, they hate cliffhangers even more and if an unfamiliar reader picks up your book not knowing it’s part of a series, they’ll let you know how frustrated they are that they read the second instead of the first book.
Standalone: I haven’t written a standalone as this is my debut novel of a series. I can understand why readers love standalones: no waiting, they get “the end” at the end of the book instead of a “to be continued”, biting on their nails, wondering what will happen next. ;)

Q. What tips do you give the other authors in terms of promoting their books?

I would form ‘author’ friendships and share your successful promotions with others and have them share theirs with you.

~About Lan LLP~

Over a long year ago, I picked up a pen to jot down the first sentence of my vivid imagination. Those initial words were the seeds that grew into my flowering romance book, “Beginning with Forever.” With all my heart, I wrote, rewrote, edited, re-edited and now, I’m finally ready to share it with all of you. My one and only aspiration for this book is to have readers embrace my story and characters with their heart.If I can make someone laugh till their gut hurts, hate the villain with vengeance, cry till their eyes dry out, fall in love all over again, and drool over the hero or feel any other emotions, than I've succeeded my goal.
I’m the sappiest person in the world when it comes to romance. Don’t smirk! I believe in love at first sight, Prince Charming or in my book,Mr. Hot Billionaire, and happy endings. In my heart, every women deserves all three, and they will when they lose themselves in my books. Your fantasy can become a reality with just the flip of a page, so come join me.
