Quick 4am thoughts about the new book

Rick is a lot smarter than I thought he was. And much more wounded. Wendy isn’t a saint. I need to do some more research about gravel pits, particularly in winter. And I need to learn a LOT more about guns. And forensic evidence. I skated by last time by pushing everything off on Rick; but now…here’s Rick, committing a gruesome murder. I love Rachel even more now than I did when writing Waiting For Spring, something I didn’t think was possible. I’m worried, already, about how to market a second novel when the even the briefest plot summary spoils the first novel. I can already see the book’s cover in my mind. I hope I can make it translate. I’ve already chosen the epigraph:

We all were sea-swallow’d,
though some cast again,
And by that destiny to perform an act
Whereof what’s past is prologue,
what to come in yours and my discharge.

– William Shakespeare (The Tempest)

  1. Sounds good. I like The Tempest quote.

    Now, what type of guns are you looking into? I specialise in military small arms, which have always been readily available to the public (even from the 1900s – not just Civil War era!). 1911 Colt, .45ACP…Swith & Wesson Model 10, .38 cal. (popular with police until the 1980s)…Walther P38, 8mm…and far more! (I can also send you links about various types of guns and how they work.) By the way, my mother is really good with forensics. :o)
