Last weekend, I had the joy of attending the Saints & Sinners Literary Festival in New Orleans.

Held over 4 days each Spring, the festival features panel discussions and master classes around literary topics that provide a forum for authors, editors and publishers to talk about their work for the benefit of emerging writers and the enjoyment of fans of LGBT literature.

The event lives up to its promise. I participated in on the panel: RETURN ENGAGEMENT: THE ART OF THE SEQUEL, which attempted to answer the burning questions of How much information and story does the author need to repeat with a sequel? How should characters change and evolve through an ongoing series of works? When is the story complete? And how does a writer engage readers without leaving them wanting more? Joining me were fellow Panelists Michael Thomas Ford, William Holden, Doreen Perrine, and moderator Jim Provenzano.
