The sequel to Donovan’s Law, working title Soul Survivor, is now complete. The official manuscript has been sent to my book publisher, OakTara, and the fate of publication is now in their hands. It has taken me six and half months to write this book, which is half the time it took to write Donovan’s Law and a third of the time it took to write Where Is That In The Bible?
How did I write this one so quickly? The truth is I wrote most of it five years ago when I wrote Donovan’s Law. I have spent the last six months augmenting the foundation I developed back then. I had to develop three key areas: the beginning so it tied into the ending from Donovan’s Law, the answer to the most frequently asked question “What happened to Louise?” and then the ending. Finally, I had to go back and rewrite the story to match everything I had added.
I must be honest; I am truly excited about Soul Survivor. Three separate reviewers read the entire manuscript and each one offered a different opinion. Here is what they had to say:
- Author of seven books and book reviewer for publishing houses – “WOW! I sure enjoyed your story. It was very thought provoking and riveting.”
- 30 year veteran of the police force, retired Sergeant and homicide investigator – “It made me cry.”
- My sister, (who may be a little partial to my stories, since it was her and I that collaborated on Donovan’s Law) – “I loved it!!!”
So why did I use a reviewer from the police department you may ask? Well, unlike Donovan’s Law which was based around firefighters, Soul Survivor is coming from the perspective of police officers. So it was important to me that the areas in the book which dealt with investigative specifics, seemed realistic to someone who had been there and done that…so to speak.
Now…buckle up your emotional seatbelt. The sequel to Donovan’s Law is going to take your soul on a roller coaster ride into the future…
