Tom Clancy: A Good reason why you should write a series of novels

Forgeddabout writing just one blockbuster novel.
Tom Clancy, Series Writer

Think about writing a series, if you really really want to become a multimillionaire writer, like Tom Clancy:


By 1988, Clancy had earned $1.3 million for The Hunt for Red October and had signed a $3 million contract for his next three books.[13] By 1997, it was reported that Penguin Putnam Inc. (part of Pearson Education) would pay Clancy $50 million for world rights to two new books, and another $25 million to Red Storm Entertainment for a four-year book/multimedia deal.[14] Clancy followed this up with an agreement with Penguin's Berkley Books for 24 paperbacks to tie in with the ABC television miniseries Tom Clancy's Net Force aired in the fall/winter of 1998. The Op-Center universe has laid the ground for the series of books written by Jeff Rovin, which was in an agreement worth $22 million, bringing the total value of the package to $97 million.[14]


Onwards and upwards, eh?

Best of luck and let me know how your series going.
