Creating Goals and Writing
My second book in my Dead series, Dead Twice, is now finished and with my editor. It's taken around six months for this to be completed and 6 drafts. It took that many to decide on which ending I wanted! What's this one about? Like in Dead Again, the main character, Paige, is murdered and returns to life to try and figure out who killed her. This time she finds her own body and hides it, covering up her own murder. For those who read Dead Again, there's an explanation given for why these people are coming back, but you'll have to read Dead Twice to find out. For readers of my first novel, Father's Song, you'll find a return of an ancient evil from that book, but I'm not going to reveal too much here.
Here's an outline for Dead Twice, release dates coming soon:
What happens when Paige is murdered and returns to life, finding her own dead body a few feet away? What else can she do but hide the body and hope she can find her killer before it's discovered?Has she just covered up the killer's crime? What is the roaring she keeps hearing after returning to life? Is it a symptom of life after death and what are the Water Voices?Someone wants Paige dead, but her best friend has gone missing and she knows she's also in trouble from the same killer. Could it be her friend's boyfriend? Why did Paige's ex run out on her and what secrets could her sister in law be holding?Time runs out as her killer learns she's back and events get darker for Paige as she follows the trail of her killer until she learns the past can return with a vengeance. A crime thriller that goes beyond death and questions the very fabric of reality.
