Okay no advertising today. Just some updates. In the past two weeks I’ve been pretty busy with novel #2 “THE SHIP” which is a sequel to my first book “THE BRIDGE”. It takes up with two of the main characters from book 1, Cassandra and Julie and their trip to Santa Cruz California. The other leading characters from “THE BRIDGE” Alex and Veronica make brief appearances.
While visiting the west coast, Cassie and Julie, must come to terms with their experiences from the first book as well as their budding romantic relationship and how deeply entwined they wish to become with each other. But they must also deal with hidden dangers on not just one but 2 fronts. Two of the antagonists from the first book have followed them here and are watching them carefully. But even more importantly, a new danger has arisen from the depths of the ocean. And this new threat is known to Cassandra’s family from the day’s when her ghostly guardian Brandon was still alive.
I’ve been going to great lengths to keep the suspense and intrigue of the first novel alive in this book, while introducing new characters and situations, that in turn will lead to even more stories down the road. I’m very careful about always setting the stage for upcoming installments and try not to throw anything at my readers that will not one day come into play in the future. I’m striving to keep my audience fascinated and entertained as much as possible.
Now in addition to writing the second novel, I’ve also been working on the cover for the 2nd book. Here is a sample of the progress I’ve made on it. Keep in mind, it is not completed and there is more for me to add to this piece as I want to put in more elements to increase the ‘Eerie’ feel I’m striving for:
In other news, I managed to get “THE BRIDGE” on the shelves of 2 bookstores that carry Indie author Books. I’m hoping to get into contact with even more bookstores in the near future. I’m also expecting a phone call from a local radio station next week, to set up an on air interview. This will be my first one, so I’m both excited and nervous. I’ll be doing some research about being interviewed on radio to help prepare myself so I don’t embarrass myself.
That’s all for now. I’ll post again in a day or so with more news. Take care everyone.
