Life is good!
I'm writing again. Working on a proposal for the fourth book in the Parker series. The first three books each focused on one of the women in the investigation firm. This time, I'm involving all three of them more equally, although I think Shelby will end up with a slightly bigger part than the other two.
My biggest challenge with this is keeping each of their personalities consistent and separate. It's much easier when you're only dealing with a single character. I'm thinking about going back and reading the first three books to refresh my memory of the characters. And I think that will be strange. I haven't read either of the first two books since they were published because by the time you get to publication, you've read the manuscript about fifty times and are sick to death of it.
I'm hoping to get the proposal finished and polished by the end of the week. Then it's on to the new cozy series.
