Hello, from the author of the above. I am engaged in writing the final chapter of the trilogy. My question to you is, how much of the back story do you like included when reading the next book of a trilogy. Bearing in mind it may have been sometime since you read the first two in the series?
My dilemma comes from wanting to make sure if a new reader picks up the third book first, I give them enough information to enable them to enjoy the novel as a whole. But, I don't want to bore the reader who has already followed me.
I didn't experience this problem with the writing of - To Catch a Dream - as it was a prequel so there was no back story to tell, which the reader would already know.
The writing of - Tomorrow Brings Sorrow - the third and final book in the series, is well under way, and I am hoping to keep to my deadline of July for the publishing, so your comments on the above would be most welcome.
Also can report the paperback of - To Catch a Dream - is only a couple of weeks away, waiting with baited breath for the publisher to send my sample copy so I can sign it off.
Other news is, I have a draft outline completed of my fourth novel - Time Passes Time - A poignant and yet, thrilling story of a war time heroine who is re-living her nightmare past through her altzimer flashbacks and a young girl who re-unites her with the child of her lost son. The writing of it makes me cry for the sad events as well as for the grit and courage many of our elderly folk showed in their younger years, and how they are still suffering the effects.
Lastly, thank you all for your support. You are all very dear to me, much love, Mary xxx Mary Wood
