I don’t know what other authors call them, but for me, it’s those novellas and shorts in a series that fit between main series books or add to a series’ world.
You know the ones — the books that update you on a set of main characters after they had their own book or highlight a secondary character introduced in a main book or look at a different set of characters in the series world.
Such is the case with the free novellas I did for my Security Specialists International series.
Stormy Weather Baby, or Book 1.5, as I like to call it, showed the birth of Keely and Ren’s baby boy, Riley, and introduced Dr. Fiona Teague (SSI operative Price Teague’s younger sister) as a love interest for Trey Maddox.
Storm Front, or Book 2.5, took the Big Earl character from Cold Day in Hell out to Idaho for the wedding of Callie and Risto and hooked him up with Tessa, a friend of Cassie’s.
So, that’s what an in-between book is. My two shorts are still available FREE as downloads and the links are provided below. Or they can be purchased together in one print volume, Storm Stories, at Amazon.com.
Do you have any favorite in-between books in a series you especially like?
I’ll start, why don’t I? I love the Thea Harrison novellas she does in her Elder Races series (Samhain publishes them).
