How many books is overkill for a series?

There is no limit to the number of books in a series. Magic Tree House Series is a long running series.  Many long running series are written by different writers. As long as a book's voice speaks to readers, the series lives.  

Explore the possibility of an overlapping series.  
Example:  Main Character from Series 1 meets Main Character from Series 2. Both characters cross paths throughout the series. Each character retains his/her own story.  Series 1 may appeal to a male readers, while Series 2 appeals to female readers.  

Either way, an author can encourage their audience to collect both series to learn the "full story."  Marketing breathes life into creativity.  Be savvy in your approach to entertaining your readers.
