Any set of stories that feature the same characters, or some of the same characters, and covers a stretch of time for the tale to be successfully told, tend to require some sort of story arc to tie all the parts together.<br /><br />This can happen when there is a sequel. A sequel is a second story featuring the same main characters as in the previous book. It tends to be a continuation of their tale, except that you did need a previous standalone story with a satisfying ending to enlarge upon. If more disasters are ahead for these characters, then in the second standalone title, their story is really tied up by the conclusion of this second book.<br /><br />It can happen with a spin-off, that is a book that features one or more characters who were in a previous book but who were not the main character or characters in the earlier book. The world these characters inhabit is the same one that appeared in the first book and the story arc that began in the original book will reach a conclusion in the spin-off. But the spin-off will also have a standalone story to satisfy the reader.<br /><br />Story Arcs are much easier to understand when it comes to trilogies because while there are three standalone stories told, there is a larger picture that it takes three books to bring to a successful conclusion.<br /><br />With series, the story arc is stretched to cover every title in the series. Frequently it is a quest or a hero’s journey, a coming of age or growing more proficient in a job category tale.<br /><br />In BEGINNERS GUIDE TO STORY ARCS FOR TRILOGIES AND SERIES we also take a quick look at sequels and spin-off books and seriously consider how best to tie more than a single story set in the same fictional world together.<br /><br />About the Author:<br />Beth Daniels, as Beth Henderson, is the author of 29 and counting historical romantic adventures and romantic comedies, many of which have snagged 5* reviews on Amazon. She has also dipped her quill into the mystery/Alternative History and urban fantasy niches as J. B. Dane, and Steampunk as Nied Darnell. She holds a BA in American History with a minor in British Modern History and a MA in English Composition and Rhetoric with an Emphasis in Creative Writing. <br /><br />After presiding over seventy various online workshops about writing fiction, most of them at SavvyAuthors.com and various online Romance Writers of America chapters, she began retiring the workshops, turning them into the various Fiction Writing Aid Workshops in Book Form titles. BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO STORY ARCS FOR TRILOGIES AND SERIES, with a Bow to Sequels and Spin-Offs, is the 14th title in the series.<br /><br />Join her on Twitter @BethDaniels1, @Beth__Henderson, or @JBDaneWriter, or on Facebook at BethHendersonAuthor.<br />Visit her at www.RomanceAndMystery2.com, www.Muse2Ms.com, or www.WritingSteampunk.com.<br />

Queste pagine raccontano le storie di 60 vittime innocenti della mafia. Persone morte per aver pestato i piedi ad un boss, difeso il bene comune, visto qualcosa di troppo, chiesto diritti e non favori. O per essersi trovate nel posto sbagliato nel momento meno opportuno. Improvvisamente hanno conosciuto la mafia e non hanno avuto scampo: un bagliore, un boato e sono caduti in un lago di sangue. Forse al posto nostro. O più semplicemente morti perché noi non siamo stati troppo vivi

Just as there were all kinds of animals in Noah's Ark, so the Gospels contain multitude of religious, philosophical, and moral doctrines. This book traces the Christian doctrine to its many roots, and splits the canonical image of Jesus into the several figures it was made of.

I wrote this for you.<br />For the ones filled to the brim in grief without an explanation as to where it came from. For the brave who do not get credit for being so,<br />and the ones burdened with the weight of a mind they're not strong enough to carry. For those who sleep but never find rest. For the quiet who's battle goes unnoticed, a breath for those who forgot what it was like to breathe. For the exhausted dreamers, the apprehensive tongue tied in created guilt they do not deserve to have. You are never alone.<br />-Fran
