I am not very good at blogging…or self-promotion for that matter. It’s on my To-Do list to get better at it.
But I haven’t been totally neglecting the Chronicles. As a matter of fact, this year’s NaNoWriMo project will hopefully kick off a new series set in the same universe. All your favorite secondary characters are there, seen through a new lens as Fred and Kevin Reilly take the spotlight and work to solve a mystery for Aunt Emily.
I have to admit, it was a lot of fun to write, and so far, the beta responses have been promising. I learned a lot about the characters in my world that Jo never bothered to tell me. 😉
Looking at things from the perspective of a different viewpoint was extremely enlightening. Now, I am not saying the Jo’s stories are done–I have at least a half dozen more in my head…–but this venture will complement and add to the world, expanding on characters and relationships I had never realized existed. Do your characters ever spring things on you like that, writing buddies?
So, look for The Fred Files: The Case of the Counterfeit Confederate coming soonish…(title subject to change…)
