So when you're writing a sequel to one of your books, how much recap of previous events do you think should be put in? (For example in the first four Harry Potter books, there was always an opening chapter that talked about how Harry was a wizard and went to Hogwarts and who his best friends were and how he got the lightening scar, ect).
It does feel like it's a lot different for web serials...at least I hope it is. I recently started book 2, and since pretty much the people who read it will be those who read the first book...and new comers will just start with the first chapter on the blog anyways....I thought it would actually be pretty boring for readers if I included recap.
That being said it did start me thinking, and considering a bit for the future...for example if I decide to turn them into ebooks. And I was wondering what other people thought. How much, if any, recap should you include?
