Hell’s Belle fans will be happy to hear that I made terrific headway on my pre-outline outline for Book 3.
I know, weird, right? A pre-outline outline?
This is basically where I decide the major plot points, as well as identify the characters I need to carry the these plot points forward. It looks like our favorite surviving characters are back: Nina, Frankie, and Max, of course. Darcy and Matty return, and Casper too. Chuck will probably turn up a time or two, simply because the Beta Vamp really grew on me. Dr. O returns in this book, but we probably won’t catch much of him until the end. And, of course, our favorite demon Ami Bertrand is back pulling everyone’s strings.
Plus, I am introducing a new, pivotal character. He’s a doozy, and I am crazy excited to write him.
Nina and Casper are going to go through a major upheaval in this one. I know, how much more crap can I throw at Nina? But just like I needed to off a certain character in Tainted Blood so that Nina could grow as a character, this is the next step in her development.
Action lovers will be happy to hear that it looks like the action sequences are back in line with the original Hell's Belle. The crew knows exactly what's going on and what they need to do. So this time, it's all in the execution.
Here's a playlist of music kept me going while I worked it all out. Let me know how you feel about the tunes!
