Case File: The Journey of the Freighter Lola

top secret folder

Originally the first book in the Journey of the Freighter Lola series was intended to be the only work in the series that would be offered as a novel.  All the follow-up works were to be short stories.  As fortune would have it the second book in the series Carbonado not only wasn’t a short story but it was longer than Hardcore the first book.

When the third book, Dale Dair was completed I realized the story needed to be longer than this trilogy and I set my sights on a six-book series.  Chico 7 was followed by Rapparee and now I am working on book six in the series.

I never give a title to the work until later in the process.  I prefer to have the story tell me what it will be known as.  I use a generic working title to save my files and work.  That allows me to keep things in order on my computer.

I just finished chapter 2 in the book.  That is all rough draft, so you see I have a long way to go until this one is released.  I usually have a rough draft and then about seven rounds of editing from me followed my editor.

If the book is as good as I think these two chapters are, it will be my best work to date.  I look forward to developing the story as much as I hope you look forward to reading it.
