I’ll ask this in the workshop as well, but I thought I’d post my question here so I can review the answer and come up with new questions to ask.
I understand about ordering your series/books into groups and the rationale of Tammi’s choices. However, unless a reader signs up through a generic website form (which is rare for me), they’ll be joining the list via a specific BF or FB ad cookie, in my case a short story in the same world as one of my series. So wouldn’t it make more sense to start the sequence with the series which goes with that cookie? I know, as a reader, I’d be put off if I signed up for a list based on a post-apoc story and then the first series I was told about was space opera. I might not wait until I got to the email about the post-apoc series, but just unsubscribe right away since I’d obviously not signed up for what I thought I did.

Hey Elise! I attended the Tues zoom and we did talk about this some, as one of the participants is in a similar position. In short, yes, there are ways to do it! But best to talk about it in your zoom meeting and get the specifics.
We had multiple people with the same issue in our workshop today, and Tammi gave a lot of feedback on pros and cons of each approach. I still haven’t decided what I’m going to do. I’m still chewing on the information!
I’ll have to go find your class’s zoom recording. I dug out my giant whiteboard yesterday and mind-mapped my “story behind the story” and I think I see how it needs to be, which isn’t precisely straightforward!
