Now that Amanda Cadabra and The Cellar of Secrets – Book 2 in the series, has been out for two whole months, I am opening a locked dossier. Maybe you’ve wondered how an author does research, and this may give you some insight. Most of it takes place on the internet, and I save the relevant pages to my browser bookmarks, but, more interestingly, I gather inspirational and informative pins into a private Pinterest folder for the book. If you would like to get a taste of the background research for Amanda Cadabra Book 2, the link is here.
What about Amanda Cadabra Book 3? I am 25% of the way through writing it. The plot is about to be dispatched to my excellent cover artist so his creative genius can begin formulating visions, one of which will be the final version that you will see in the partial then full cover reveal.
At present, I hope the publication date to be at the end of March or beginning of April. I’ll keep you posted.
Meanwhile, on Sunday, 24th February, for just 24 hours, you will be able to download free from Amazon, another publication from Heypressto: 50 Feel-better Films by Chartreuse. This is the first in the Feel-better Collections series and is the product of years of research. If you’d like to start getting into the zone for Amanda Cadabra Book 3, I recommend Random Harvest, especially the beginning. I’ll say no more! Have I said too much?
Here the UK, early signs of spring are warming the air, painting the sky blue and encouraging the first daffodils to show their faces. A trip up to the real Sunken Madley will soon be called for to capture the new season there.
