|I thought this would be the last in the series, but I was wrong.|
Yep, this is nervous time.
This is the next offering in the Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery series. I really thought when I finished End of the Trail that would be the last one in the series. However another idea popped into my head, and I was off and running. Well, not really running, but working away on my computer.
While I was writing, I was having fun like I always do when I'm writing. And I don't know about the rest of you writers, but when I'm done, or think I am, I begin to have doubts.
I'm doing something different this time. After going over it myself and finding lots of misspelled words and other things I had to fix, I decided to send it off to two friends who'd long ago offered to take a first look at a manuscript. I've done it. It's now in their hands, and yes, I'm wondering if they'll even like it.
By the time this appears, I will have returned from a research trip to Temecula, to check and see if some of the things I included in the books will really work. Yes, this latest takes place in Temecula, one of my favorite cities in lower Southern California. I have relatives who live in and around there, so I'm familiar with the area, though I wrote about parts I haven't seen. I also made up a place and I needed to see if it actually works as I wrote it. More about that in a later post.
Hopefully, by the time this is posted, I'll know what I have to do on the newest Tempe tale.
