It feels good to finish writing a book. And I have. Finished, that is. What I hope to turn into a series, starts with GRAVE MAKER BLUES. It may be a standard mystery, but it does have some specific elements to make it fit into a certain nitch. Native American folklore, for one. I have fingers and toes crossed that this one will hold great promise. I've sent it off to an agency which I hope will take me on. We'll see.
In the meantime, I'm trying to piece together an outline for book two. I have never followed up so quickly on a second in a series. With any luck, it will go even more smoothly than the process for book one. You know what they say about getting to know your characters making it easier to write a series. I feel close to Sarah (Mac) and Nash, Papa and Uncle Chaz, the beautiful nature of the Alleghenies, the little burg, Priest Hollow, and of course Moe's Deja Blue Bar & Grill. Every time, now, when I get the chance to visit our cabin on Roper Hollow Road, I'm reminded of those characters and inspired with new ideas and storylines to put into future books.
Again, we shall see....
