    Question regarding sequel

    Hello everyone,

    I have somewhat of a dilemma. I am writing the "sequel" to a novella that I previously self-published as a kindle ebook. I want to make this a full length novel. The ideas are flowing. The problem is whether or not I should classify it as a sequel. I hope to submit this one to publishers. I want to continue the story of my characters, but will this be detrimental? Should I start with new characters?
    Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciatd.
    Thanks!

    The first question is if this can stand alone or if someone needs to read the original to understand the sequel. If it is a standalone book, I'd change the names. It's really easy with find-and-replace and that way you don't have to worry when submitting it to agents or publishers.
