Getting Ready for the Next Mystery

As I wait to hear back on that last remaining fixes that are needed for Eyes of Diamond, Hair of Gold, I’m already hard at work laying the foundation for the next Allison Newberry mystery. As with the first sequel, the second sequel present with me with an opportunity to explore a new setting, a new cast of characters [except the few who are returning], a new mystery to solve, and a new danger for the intrepid detective.

Unfortunately, I’m not ready to go into detail about this particularly story just yet. Suffice it to say, I do have a very good idea and I’ve got a nice foundation set up from which to build my story. What’s important here is to present a new location that is both interesting and a little strange, exciting but frightening; to present a case that is beyond the ordinary, a crime that only Allison could get herself mixed up in; and tie it all together with a cast of characters that feel like real people, with their own motives and their own lives beyond the confines of the story. And, as always, there’s that element of danger. In the first book, it was the city of Illdara. In the second book, it was…well…you’ll have to wait just a little while longer to find out about that one! Don’t worry, though, that danger will certainly find its way into to the third book, as well.
