Question about Sequels
I'm writing the sequel to Battle Buddy and have a couple questions. Battle Buddy was written for a submission call, a short story and more like a diary of Shane Tucker's time in boot camp and ranger school. I didn't really get into who Owen was, beyond what little Tuck knew about him. So my first question is, would it bother you as a reader to read about Owen's time in boot camp and ranger school from his perspective knowing where it goes? Kind of like his diary. The feelings would obviously be completely different and I am not focusing on the same events but new ones. Do you like when the author recaps or do you skim over those parts?
Second question after Owen's story (a novella) I have a full length novel plotted out called Sua Sponte
but haven't come up with a title for my current WIP. What do you think of "Tuck & Cover" for Owen's story? (Thanks Dan ~waves~)
