Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
I know exactly what you mean here. I'm not at the point of writing my second book yet, but I have read many books that do this. I've found that writers briefly recap events, some even dedicate an entire paragraph to it!
I'd say try and incorporate certain things that are crucial to the story as a trilogy into different aspects of the book; like in speech between characters as well as narrative. Also, having an appendix can be useful if it would suit your books, you can put maps of the setting and information about the characters here so readers can reference at their own leisure.
Fish out a couple of your fav series or trilogies and note how different authors achieve what you're trying to do too!
Hope this helps!
Thanks so much Mily that was really helpful. Your right was looking at Marie V synders books and she has maps and stuff like that . well thanks once again for the advice.
You're welcome Aoife, glad I could help!
