QUIRKY but it WORKS: writing the sequel

these photos are copyrighted by their individual owners and not for sale All writers have their quirky methods. I wonder if mine is any quirkier than anyone else’s? Nevertheless… It’s time. Time to collect faces for my new novel. Rabbit Legacy (the sequel to the terrific new novel RABBIT: CHASING BETH RIDER) will have several returning characters, plus a few new ones to fill out the plot. I use photos gleaned from the web to look at while I write; and the eyes have it. When I am writing a scene, I will glance at the character’s face and then they truly come alive for me. I can be moved to tears just by imagining my novel’s circumstances forced upon the poor character on the cast page. As you can see, these are some nice faces. New to the cast is... Selene Cherrie – RABBIT: CHASING BETH RIDER Chapter 47..... Mina Bushman – romances David Walker..... Canaan – a Rakum (the name of the vampire race in this novel series), a powerful Elder. Not mentioned in the 1st book, but mentioned in the Loose Rabbits (chapters not in the novel, but posted on the website—link )..... Marcy Haddle – not mentioned in the 1st Book; Canaan’s mate of choice..... Damien – Not mentioned in the 1st book, but mentioned in the Loose Rabbits; was a powerful Rakum Father, now human..... Theophilus – a Rakum Father in the 1st Book, under duress in the 2nd..... There are others that are not pictured… I am saving the bad guys for later. I am not into spoiling the novel for you this soon!..... Go pick up a copy of Rabbit: Chasing Beth Rider today anywhere you buy books, or buy a signed copy on the website,, and see what the BUZZZ is all about!

Finally! Your friendly neighborhood author is all better. Cold is all gone. Cough all gone. And while I was away from you...THE RABBIT WAS LOOSED UPON THE WORLD! Like wild-fire, she has spread out across the country and across the Pond to be sure everyone who wants to read my book, can... How about you? baby... it is still being offered on the website at a discount for signed author copies. I was honored to do my first radio interview on the 19th. It turned out super, thank goodness, and I sounded fairly cognizant. If you would like to hear it, go to and click 'Author Sightings' to listen. I am busily writing the sequel to RABBIT. Today I created a character named Mina. She'll be a new heroine I believe to support the returning characters. She's still being born, so I'll hush there. God is good (all the time). I have enjoyed surfing the 'net, looking for my book, and finding it all over the place. Not everywhere, but all the big bookstores. It is a dream come true. I'm having the best time! Please let me know what you think of the book, my friends. I'm off to write on Mina. She needs me...
