"If" we write the next set of books in the series, which I believe we definitely will, I've been given the character of Ruby. She is the Book Club "mom." When I was reading through PAIGE and DAISY, I started taking some characterization notes. It was a lot of fun and Ruby is already worming her way into my writer psyche.
Her story will have to wait a little while, but I'll keep jotting down notes in the interim.
Yesterday I finished my edits on Josi's DAISY. I laughed and cried and came to totally love her character. It was extra fun to see how our joint scenes (the ones where both Daisy and Paige interact) fit into the whole of her book, since they serve different purposes in Paige's story.
Now I'm beginning edits on Heather's ATHENA. One chapter in, and already, it's a fresh, new character with an entirely different story. Can't wait to finish this one and then dive into Julie's OLIVIA!
Oh, and then go through the edits the others have done on PAIGE. It's hard to explain how cool it is to see how something that began as an idea become real!
