Doubt regarding a series of books

Hi

I was checking couple of book series on Amazon. It seems only the entire bundle is available for sale and not individual books within that series.

Is that how it is available?

I want to write one book and publish it.

Then I want to write another one which would be sequel to the first one.

But both these books should be for sale separately but displayed together as they are one story but in 2 parts.

Is there a mechanism on Amazon to achieve this?

Thanks a lot for your help.

No, that's not the way to do it at all.

Possibly, but why on earth would you do that, especially if you use Kay Yu? Most authors agree that readers of individual books (especially shorts/novellas) are a different breed from those who buy bundles. It makes sense to cater to both audiences.

You can get them to create a "series page" but it's extremely unlikely with only two books. For a bundle, simply combine the two files and publish it as for a new book. This question has been discussed extensively on the forums: search for "box set" (yes, I know that's not the correct term) or "bundle".

Hello,

I apologize for leaving this question open for so long.

My question has been answered but I simply missed out in the fact that I have an open question.

Thanks a lot for your help again.
