Submitting the first in a series.

by Tom Campbell
14th December 2021

I have completed the first short story (c6000 words) in what will be a five part series for ages 6 - 10 . The second is almost complete and I have outlines of the remaining parts.

Should I detail the entire story arc to agents when submitting Part One?

The story stands alone but would also work with illustrations, is this something an agent will suggest or should it be mentioned in the submission?

I am new to the submission process so all advice greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,



Firstly, Congratulations for completing the series. Personally, I think that you should let something left so readers can keep on with your journey, watching every new parts you release
