Chapters and pages should end mid-situation, to increase the reader's desire to keep reading. Each book would begin with a quick recap of all previous books in that series, in order to promote those books. Books might also end with a preview of the next volume in the series. The books would be priced at fifty cents, rather than the more common 75 cents, dollar, or dollar twenty-five. Characters should not age or marry. Guidelines for which company?
