Hey guys, I'm at a bit of a cross road. Do you think it is okay to jump years in a book? Basically I have a very good first ten chapters that really set up the story, then either I jump forward six years or I have made another story line that can continue straight on from chapter ten. My concerns are you don't generally see this in books jumping forward in time, plus with the new story I have created to continue on from chapter ten I don't feel it's as strong a story line. However I would have the chance to develop characters more. Also if I went with the slightly slower story line would that really grip an audience as a first book?
