It is always fun to see what other people are working on to get inspired. Are you planning on adding other "institutional" series? I can think of quite a few off the top of my head, but if you are in the middle of this, I will hold off. --Kay T 15:53, 29 December 2006 (PST)
Kay -- I just added Balogh's 'Simply' series as intitutional as the novels are all arranged around the women who teach at a girls' school.
If you've got more ideas, please go ahead. I'll be interested to see what you come up with. Saradonati
- Were you thinking that there had to be an actual institution involved in the current stories? I was thinking of Jo Goodman's series about the four men who were at school together (the Compass Club), Jo Beverley's series that revolves around men who went to school together (the other of hers is a family series). I think even Madeline Hunter got into the series with a men's "club." There are also those series that involve men working as spies. And Stephanie Laurens did a family series.--Kay T 17:53, 29 December 2006 (PST)
- I was thinking of series built around a particular business (there's one series having to do with a security firm, I just can't think of the name of it for the life of me, although each of the novels had to do with a specific precious stone -- black pearls, for example), but I think that most of the series that fall into this category will have to do with schools and clubs, as you've suggested.
I moved this discussion to the series page so we don't forget. Also, I have been hearing good things about you lately, so it is fun to run into you here. I have my eye on your two most recent releases. --Kay T 18:09, 29 December 2006 (PST)
- I'm glad you're so comfortable with the wiki editing process, because I'm always forgetting how to do things. I'll resist the urge to ask where you've been hearing good things, and settle for: I hope you enjoy the novels if/when you get around to them.
