Writing a multi-author series

A little while ago Amarinda Jones asked me to write a multi-book series with her called, “Sex Odyssey”. The books are all about the heroine’s journey, both internal and literal. I was thrilled to be asked, as she writes incredible characters. But I was terrified as well, that my books would not be good enough.
I wrote three stand-alone books, set around Resort City, and with interlinked characters.

Now I know some of you authors are experts at this. I know some series have big “bibles” with every detail plotted and planned, the world totally developed, so all the author needs to do, is write the story within the guidelines. I have heard of one science fiction multi-author series where the bible alone is over two hundred pages. That’s a book all by itself.

But the “Sex Odyssey” series is not like that. The series bible is a dozen emails with comments like, “My heroine is buxom, is wearing tailored black pants and a shirt, and has her hair in a neat updo. She bumps into your heroine in the doorway of the Sea Shanty Inn. What does your heroine look like and what is she wearing?”
Well, I knew what my heroine looked like, but she was in bed, naked, at that point so I had to stop and think. Hmm. What would she be wearing tomorrow? And why would she be going to the Sea Shanty Inn?

A little later, I realized for my plot to work, the beach needed to have sand dunes. So I emailed in a hurry, “The small beach near the trailer park has a row of sand dunes between the road and the water.”

By the time I wrote my third book, the town, Resort City, had taken shape and I had notes and diagrams of where scenes had already happened, and the trailer park, where all my books have several scenes, was a clear picture in my head.

Some of the characters are in both Amarinda’s books and mine, some of my characters are in all three books. One of the heroes of book three was a minor character in the two previous books, who simply demanded his story. I wasn’t sure how that would work. He is gay and my first two books are one woman/two man ménages. But the perfect man for him arrived in town, so book three ended up as an MM story.

And as for writing a multi-author series. Exciting, thrilling, scary. Would I do it again? Hell yes.

An Excerpt from "Fireworks at the Lake" by Berengaria Brown

Andrew had spent most of the afternoon trying not to stare at the blond Viking stretched out on a lawn chair with the ripples from the lake running up and over his toes. The blond had removed his T-shirt and placed his Stetson over his face, but not before Andrew had seen the intense blue of his eyes and the sharp ridge of his nose. Since then Andrew had spent his time appreciating the Viking’s muscled arms and shoulders, his ripped abs and the long, long line of his legs—right down to the toes currently buried under an inch of water. Long, narrow toes, a fitting ending to the long, lean legs that disappeared inside baggy, knee-length shorts.
Likely, his view of the Viking was going to be the most exciting part of his Fourth of July weekend this year. Still, life wasn’t too bad. In fact, it could have been a hell of a lot worse. A bunch of the people from the office had planned to spend the day at a cookout in a city park. Andrew didn’t mind working with them, but he wasn’t ready to spend his vacation days with them as well, which was why he’d decided to come here to the lake for the three-day Fourth of July weekend.
Originally he’d planned to stay on the shore until the nine o’clock “family” fireworks display, then head back into the small tourist town for a meal before the midnight lakeside fireworks. But now his plans were liable to change. If the Viking stayed here, he’d stay. If the Viking went off with friends, that would be the end of his happy thoughts of getting to know the man. The only problem was, he hadn’t quite worked out how to get to know the blond yet.
Part of Andrew wanted to just sit and wait. The Viking had been lying there for a couple of hours already, and unless he planned to get quite wet, he’d have to move his lawn chair soon, as the tide was coming in. Likely when he stood up, Andrew could catch his gaze and say hello. Or something. On the other hand, it seemed rude to keep staring—or pretending not to stare—and not speak. But then, perhaps it would be safer to do nothing at all and just wait and watch. So Andrew waited and watched and tried to make up his mind what to do. Part of the problem was that his relationship with Rory had damaged his self-confidence.
He’d loved Rory passionately, far more passionately than Rory had ever loved him. Andrew had wanted them to live together, to settle down, to be a real couple, but Rory had never agreed to that. Gradually Andrew had realized that they were drifting apart, no matter how hard he’d tried to keep them together. Finally he’d understood that although Rory had been the man for him, he couldn’t fulfill Rory. After that had come a time of intense pain and anguish. A time when he’d wondered if he’d ever be enough to make another man happy. But that was last year, and Andrew was ready to try again. But only with someone who at least thought he might be able to love Andrew back.
Andrew stared at the Viking. He knew nothing about this man except that the blond was delicious eye-candy. However, something strong and powerful drew him to the Viking. Could this be his chance at happiness? Or would it be just another Rory who couldn’t return his love?
