I think every author has the dream of creating a book that captures the imagination, has universal appeal and sells millions of copies. (Gone With the Wind, Da Vinci Code, The Name of the Rose, Bridges of Madison County and many more)
I’d like to publish a series this year, one that has both a unique angle and also universal appeal. It is possible to do both?
I know of series that appeal in one genre or another: Game of Thrones, Harry Potter and the Hunger Games in fantasy, Fever in paranormal, the Prey books and Jack Reacher in crime fiction and the Outlander series in historical (or time travel) fiction. Those are just the series I’m intimately familiar with.
Are there series that appeal across genres?
What are some of the series that you like? Why do they appeal to you?
