Off to Writing…

July 5, 2015

Patricia Gligor has headed out, it was great visiting with her! If you missed her visit, just go back one post.

I’m back to writing, but thought I’d take a moment to talk about my Raven’s trilogy. I’m working on the final leg of Hugh’s Mojave adventure at last. It started as a standalone, Reticence of Ravens, then several readers said, more from Hugh! So Counsel of Ravens followed. Then I opened my big mouth and said, I’m writing a trilogy! Ha! During all this, I’ve written several other standalones, Lies of Convenience (I especially like Margo’s story), and Rhodes The Mojave-Stone.  This may sound like a promotional commercial, it isn’t meant to be, but to point out how hard it is (for me) to pick up characters and circumstances I’ve left as continuing “what ifs” in my fictional worlds, and take another step forward in their lives. I’m very fond of mystery series–but to write one, now that’s another matter. For sure, I’m a snapshot writer, not a saga writer. But I told someone, you might know who you are, Ravens was a trilogy–and I’m trying to keep that promise! Thank goodness for making commitments…

Off to writing…
