I'm getting ready to start writing again.
Somewhat to my surprise, I think it will be a sequel to Led to the Slaughter, instead of continuing Ghostlander like I originally intended.
The ideas started flowing yesterday, and I liked them quite a bit.
Something that I've realized that I need to do before I start the book is have a general idea of the theme and what I hope to accomplish. But even more important, making sure I have all the ingredients for a book.
So, for instance, I knew that I wanted to continue Virginia Reed's story. I knew I was going to throw in a werewolf or two. I knew that I was going to go toward a Bigfoot type character and that the 49's gold rush would be the background..
Yesterday, I realized I wanted to bring in the California Native American genocide, which was one of the worse in the country.
That should be enough ingredients to mix together for a satisfying tale.
