WHEN I began Ghost of Panther Holler, I had a devil of a time getting my previous story of Legend of Panther Holler out of my head. I loved the four character from Legend but now, since there are continuing to tell their story, I had to set them on another journey–and one that would be as exciting and suspenseful as the first. Without an outline I had no idea at the time where the story would go. I suppose this is where I just allow the characters to write their own story, for I have the intuitive ability to feel what they want to say.
As my story developed, instead of four main characters I developed as many as twelve. One thing I found is it’s imperative to keep the story, characters and action alive on the page to keep the reader excited. One thing I want to leave with you: Don’t be afraid to reach beyond your expectation and if you do your characters will tell their story.
REMEMBER, A GREAT BOOK DOESN’T HAPPEN OVERNIGHT, IT’S A JOURNEY…MAKE THAT JOURNEY INVOLVE YOUR READER, AND IT WILL BE A HIT! MAKE IT MEMORABLE.
