Hi all, Is it acceptable to hint at something in a novel, that will b of importance in the next novel? Or in a short story that relates to the same world? I'm planning to write at least two novels in my zombie apocalypse assuming I can get enough material for the second novel. The other idea I'm toying with is writing a series of short stories that are based in the same world. For example I was playing a zombie game and had a great idea of having a mine in the world. The miners are trapped down there with some of the zombies so they opt to blow the mine. In my novel I was thinking of either simply referencing an explosion, and them consiedering the possibility of it being the mine, but not going to investigate. Or they go to investigate, see that it's completely blown and head back to the main story line. What do you think? The short stories could also be compiled by my two main characters as stories they've discovered along the way. Journal entries, etc. Thanks!
