Ali’s write up of the James Moloney workshop many of the writelinkers and other young adult authors of Brisbane recently attended.
With fifty books to his credit, Aussie kidlit author James Moloney has plenty of wisdom to share about writing a book series.
His first series was The Book of Lies. Because it was originally written as a stand alone, he learned what not to do for future series.
Here’s the Goodreads blurb for the book (How good does this sound?)
The newest boy at Mrs. Timmins’s Home for Orphans and Foundlings awakes at first light with no name and no memory. But a strange girl who hides among the shadows of the orphanage tells him that a mysterious wizard’s creation, the Book of Lies, holds the answers, and then gives him one clue: “Your name is Marcel.”
The Book of Lies trilogy was followed by the Silvermay Series and the Doomsday Rats, with numerous other books and collections all around. [Buy James’s books here]
