I’m in a new position this month – I’m working on a sequel to I Heard Your Voice. Parts of it are fairly easy, but others required a lot of working out.
I’ve read plenty of sequels and novel series. Often they will focus on different characters each time, which is nice and straightforward. Those that follow a single character, in my reasding, have usually been crime or mystery fiction. With romance it’s harder. Certainly in the case of I Heard Your Voice the couple got their happy ending – unsurprisingly – which means that I no longer have a romantic build-up, unless I was to separate them and introduce a new love interest. And I didn’t want to do that. I rather liked them together.
So I had no trouble coming up with a plotline, but how to handle the romance?
Thank goodness for the suggestion made in the first story, that sex on haunted ground enhances paranormal activity. So far Tamar hasn’t needed that – she attracts spirits by singing. But in this story, she needs an extra influx of power… and maybe boyfriend Jason will be ready and willing to provide that?
Fingers crossed it works!
