Several of my books received comments suggesting a sequel. Never wrote a sequel so the suggestions stirred my inner places and I decided to try. I love reading sequels as I have a bond with the characters and want to see them in different situations, but writing a sequel is a different story.
I decided to try with my novel CATCH and RELEASE, which won several awards and has a popular following, a helpful item when you expect people to know who the characters are in the book. But what about the people who don’t? I just couldn’t start a dialog between Jennifer and Steve if the reader had no clue who Jennifer and Steve were from other interactions. (If you never read CATCH and RELEASE, you can now easily identify with my quandary). I found a sequel was similar to weaving a tapestry where you use enough old material to make the reader comfortable yet add lots of new things to make the story exciting.
I hope I wove properly, but only the reader will be able to judge. The new book will be out in October and is called “HOOK, LINE & SINKER” and is a continuing adventure of Dr. Steve Sanders and Special Agent Jennifer Blade. If you don’t know these two people and can’t wait for October to read HOOK, LINE & SINKER, then go to Amazon and pick up a copy of CATCH and RELEASE. (Click here)
