Yep, I'm going multiple personalities!
Good Monday morning all! Today, I'm over at Elizabeth L'Inconnu's blog talking about how I like to use historical trivia in my stories. Tomorrow, Tuesday, I'm at the Cactus Rose blog, revealing some bank robber history about the country where I grew up.
And tomorrow I'm excited to dig into some research for my current WIP. I've been stalled because I need some factual info to move the story along. In the interim I've been working on a story for a Christmas Anthology and another author asked me to join her in authoring a book about two sisters adopted by two different families when their parents are killed on the way to Oregon in the 1800's. It is going to be a fun challenge.
The hardest part about working on so many projects at once is keeping the secondary characters and even sometimes the main characters in their perspective stories! I know with the Halsey brother series, there are times I type the wrong brother's name. Then I have to stop and make sure I'm thinking like Clay and not Gil or Zeke, or Ethan! They may be brothers with a strong physical resemblance, but they are each an individual, and I have to make sure I keep them that way.
Have you ever read a series and thought the main characters could have been cloned?
