, Writing a series of interconnected novels is not as easy as it sounds at least for me.
First you have to remember all the characters you created in the first book of the series. You have to remember each and every one's hair color, eye color. Are they tall or short? Who are they related to, married to and their children if any. I finally made an excel spread sheet for all the characters that would be in The Green Lady Inn series. I just referred back to it al lot. I think it's a good idea to do this for all the books you are writing.
My sequel to Broken Branches, amzn.to/2jy5zFg , is titled Whispers in Time. It's getting edited now and should be out soon.
I hope you have read Broken Branches. It made it to #3 on the Amazon Best Seller list and I was so pleased and hope all the readers enjoy it, leave a review and will go on to read book two, Whispers in Time.
I love the characters I have created for this series. Megan and Jake are the owners now of the Green Lady Inn. Megan inherited the house from her grandmother in the first book.
They have a quirky couple living next door that helped solve Megan's grandmother's murder, Amanda and Zack. They own an art gallery in Salem where a lot of action takes place. It's great fun because of the humor I can use with these two. Zack has a running gag going with Megan's cat Magic. The cat knows that Zack is not crazy about him and torments Zack at every opportunity.
Mr. Prendergast is the realtor who is always just on the shady side of things.
Then we have Detective Yarborough who can't quite understand how Megan and Jake get involved with all his cases.
Whispers in time has added a couple more permanent characters to the mix. I can't wait to see what happens in book three.
You just never know who will check into the Green Lady Inn in Salem Massachusetts.
Please leave a comment or ask a question. I don't post very often but would love to hear from you.
