Feature Follow Friday: Short Stories

  • The goal is to increase blog followers, make friends and have something to post
  • You create your own post using the post prompt
  • You leave your link and thumbnail in the linky list that links back to your post prompt
  • Once you have your post up and linked, visit other posts and tell them hi. The point is to FOLLOW them not just comment.
  • If you see a post that just hit it to the moon, or just want to show appreciation to a fellow blogger friend, like their name on the linky list to show some appreciation.
  • The person with the most likes gets chosen as the next Feature (you can be chosen every 90 days unless we are in need of features)
  • It is required that if you participate that you have to follow the FEATURE. It is a big no-no to participate and ignore the feature. They are the special snowflake in this little blizzard.
  • As a participant it is up to your discretion on how you want people to follow. Please post RSS, GFC etc if you have a follow of choice.

This week's feature

Kati Bookaholic Rambling Review

This week's prompt is

Short Stories (as companions to a series): what do you love about them and hate about them?

My Answer

I have mixed feelings about novellas or short stories that are companions to a series. I adore some of them to pieces, and others I see as just pointless money-making schemes. When done well though, I think they are absolutely fabulous additions to the series. 

Reasons I love them:
  • They bring us back into the world that we love
  • They reacquaint us with the main characters, often sharing us a snippet of their lives after the main series have ended
  • Alternatively, they shed some light into the main characters' background
What about you guys? Do you love or loathe them?

  1. Now I don't feel bad. I also (strongly) feel that many times novellas are money-making schemes. I think that's all I talked about in my post. Whoops!
