The book I am currently working on is a sequel to my book, "ENTER (at your own risk)" so the main idea was there, but even a sequel is a book in itself. You may have a base for a book, but you must spend just as much time, energy and effort as if you were starting with a new idea. If you use a repetitional form of the first book, it is not a sequel, it is just a long drawn out story. It should be a new novel all to itself. The original idea for "ENTER" was standing in a line at the grocery store. There was a little table off to the side with a entry box marked, "WIN FREE GROCERIES." I watched a woman filling out an entry form for this promise of free food. She was leaning over the table giving her name, address, phone number and email address. As she was doing this a man went up behind her getting much to close for comfort. She felt his heavy presence and turned as if to ask, "hello, can I help you?" He moved back, but would not give her the space we need to feel comfortable. I told my husband, "Look at how close that guy is. It's like he is trying to get that womens address or something. Then of course my mind turned on and this story was born.(less)

April O'BrienToday is the last day of 2016, moving right along to 2017. Never thought I would make it this far. If you have read my books you may agree.
Well, to break the ice, I will tell you about the time I fell in an out house and they had to tip it over to get me out. The sixteen year old blind, bird dog, (that I apparently cut my teeth on his ears) fell in first, I just tried to get him o... Read more of this blog post »

I truly enjoyed this story. It is a scary idea. I think I will like the rest of her books. I am going to give another one a try. I would really love to read the sequel to this book. Don't take to long. I am not good at waiting.
