Challenges of writing book two
It was definitely a bit of a challenge to write book two of Gabriel Stone, albeit a fun challenge. When writing a sequel, it’s important to try to write it as though somebody could be reading it without having read book one. So you want to get enough info in there so the particular reader isn’t lost, but also not have too much backstory that it gets boring of course.
Also, finishing off this series was bittersweet. I absolutely loved writing the characters again. It really does feel like meeting up with old friends and hanging out. So cool. But it was also sad to write the ending and say good-bye to those guys. I’ll always love those characters so much.
