This is the first time I have attempted keeping such a specific plot line, which is a mystery, going through several books. I learned some things.
- It is a hard thing to do if you don't actually plot
- Since each book has to stand alone as a complete romance, you cannot focus too much on the overarching story, therefore don't let it get too complex
- What you wrote in the first book can make it very hard to write the last book. It is very easy to paint yourself into a corner.
Yet... it is as good as done, I am happy to say. No doubt there will be revisions and tweaks, but it did tie up logically at the end, with a pretty nice bow, too, I thought. I enjoyed the challenge.
Next comes a sequel to the Haunted by the Earl's Touch, in case you wanted to know.
