It’s one of the many reasons I love writing series (instead of standalone books). I have to see what happens next—even to my own characters.
I’ve written four mystery series. In each, I’ve come to know my main characters like they were my best friends. Her quirks, flaws, likes, dislikes. I know the kind of man she wants in her life and the worst pain she’s ever endured. I know what will spur her to investigate a crime and what will make her run for the hills.
Which is why when a series is canceled, it just about breaks my heart. The characters are still there in my head, waiting for their stories to be told...but there is no market for the books.
Thankfully, now there is. With the explosion of e-books, I have been able to bring some of my series back from limbo. I've continued writing my Nina Quinn series with Trouble Under the Tree, the sixth book, and The Root of all Trouble, the seventh. The much-anticipated fourth book in my Lucy Valentine series, Perfectly Matched, is also now available.
I had a blast revisiting Lucy’s and Nina’s fictional worlds, and I can’t wait to go back. Look for more books to come from both of them.
In the meantime, I’m also writing as Heather Blake, and have three Wishcraft mysteries now available. I’ve also debuted another series this past fall. A Potion to Die For is the first in my Magic Potion series, and the next book One Potion in the Grave will be available in Nov. '14. For more information, check out my Heather Blake website.
