What happens when you're an author, and are unwilling to let go of your characters? It can end up with trilogy after trilogy. Think about it. The author writes a book. Then another. Then a third. And, of course, there's the proof-reading and editing. Then, you realize that, wait a minute! I can start another trilogy. And the beat goes on. I'm on my third trilogy in less than a year. Someone, please, tell me how to let go!
