The question this week is, do you set up character or setting profiles?
I first took this to mean, do I work up a character sketch or look for pretty pictures of what I think the setting for my next book is going to be? Short answer, no. I sit down and let the characters tell me what they look like or where they are. The only time I have to plan in advance is when I realize there are multiple people in the work, and I need to keep track of pertinent info, so not everyone looks/sounds the same. Then I stop and create a ‘bible’ for that book or series, much like Molly’s Arbor U series or Kenzie’s The Chosen series.
After I wrote down the title, I wondered if the question meant FB or Pinterest profiles? I’ve seen friends create FB pages for their different series, or Pinterest boards. I don’t do that….my time is better spent writing and marketing my work than having to post a daily question or manage multiple pages. Social Media is already a black hole of procrastination for me, and I’ve even neglected my own author page(s) at times!
Okay; I promised you the new links to the print versions of AU: Instead of posting each one, here’s the link to my Amazon Author Page. Enjoy!
Here’s my favorite of the six covers; I took the picture for the back page.
