Yes, I'm busy working on next year's Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery.
I have a title--actually had the title before I had any idea what the book would be about. A friend--one I've actually met--suggested it. I though, why not? As I began putting together what I wanted in the book, I knew the title would work.
So far I'm building around the mysterious death of an old man, his family, his three friends, their time in the Seabees together, and a mysterious woman who will have the same name as someone who won a contest.
A new female Chief shakes up the whole Rocky Bluff P.D.
Officer Stacey Milligan is called upon to investigate a serial rapist.
Officer Gordon Butler is put on graveyards, slowing his romance with Lizette Gibbs.
Ryan Stickland becomes a father and loses his position as public affairs officer.
Felix Zachary is now a Detective and Doug Milligan's new partner.
Yes, it is coming together. My biggest problem is having enough time to work on it. And work on it I must. I need to keep ahead of my critique group. I've read them Chapter 3 and I'm only writing Chapter 7.
These are the things that interrupt the writing:
Other jobs that I have to do that actually bring in some money.
Keeping up this blog. I like to have a new post every other day, which means having a guest or writing one of my own.
Doing some promotion for my latest RBPD, Dangerous Impulses.
Working on the program for the Public Safety Writers Association's conference. (There are other things I have to do for the conference, too many to list.)
And of course reading and responding to my email and checking out Facebook.
There are other normal things I have to do also, like cooking dinner, eating meals, doing the laundry etc.
And once in awhile, hanging out with family.
You could help me along with the promo stuff by checking out and possibly buying one of my RBPD mysteries that I write as F. M. Meredith. It would please me and please my publisher. The latest is Dangerous Impulses.
