So I'm outlining the first book in a new series and the story takes place after quite a big event which has a big impact on how certain characters interact with each other. I'm currently planning to put a few breadcrumbs in the first book and then the second book entirely explains what happened in the past.
Is this a good idea? Or might it be too confusing?
I don't really want to have the first book explain what happened in the past because the whole point of the series is how the characters move forward.
Any and all opinions would be greatly appreciated!
SK
