I finished writing RAINING LOVE MURDER (Love & Murder book 4). When I say finished, I mean my critique partner, Michelle Diener, has read it already, but it still has to be read by my copy editor and proofreader. I also printed a copy to read. I always find more changes when I read a hard copy.
Michelle said this book was the best I’ve written, which makes me very happy. When I’m so close to a book, I can’t judge it. And there’s a lot happening in this book. It has one main love story, but there are also two more love stories. Four, if you count a love story between a man and his dog.
It has a woman on the run and a man who finds what he wants to do in life – and no one believes in him. Until the heroine comes to this small Wisconsin town where she thinks she can disappear. Only she doesn’t realize that it’s harder to disappear in a small town than a big city.
Also, it has a Marine suffering from PTSD and a black lab who has been dumped by the family he thought loved him.
It has a songwriter and a singer. I’m drawn to books with musicians and songwriters. This is my third book with a songwriter, plus I’ve written a short story. I also like to read books with songwriters and musicians.
There’s much more in this book – including a Scientology-like religion. That topic will probably not show up in future books. What will come up again are love stories, dogs and cats, probably veterans (especially in this series), music and lyrics, small towns, artists, and people helping other people.
What setting, storylines, characters, occupations – or anything else – are you drawn to in fiction?
