Writing a book can be crazy, but writing a series can be nightmarish at times. Even though I have notes from each book about characters and plot development, invariably there is some item I’ve forgotten to document. I started writing Exodus in 2015 and now three years later, I’m scratching my head over a little detail knowing I’m going to have to go back and look it up. Aaaarrrgghhh!!
On the next book, I will try harder to provide a bit more detail in my chapter summaries and notes.
Oh well, here’s the update on the status of NSYH — 39,000 words thus far and working on Chapter Twenty-Seven at present. The action is starting to fire up and the story threads will begin to emerge to show the big picture. This book will unveil the truth behind the other books and the sometimes incomprehensible actions of the main characters. It will also lay the stage for some potential future stories about some new characters, but only time will tell where the writing muse takes me.
In my future projects file are three stories — the compilation and expansion of my “Natalie Parker” short stories; a novel about a widow who discovers love again in Empty Chairs, Empty Promises; and another short story I’m planning on expanding about the most unlikely assassin.
So hang in there, friends, the next Clare Thibodeaux book will be nearing completion sometime in the near future.
