    The issue of crazy is probably arbitrary by now. Becoming a writer is what’s crazy. After that, anything goes. So…not knowing what your choices really are in the new book–between what and what–I can only say what I’ve enjoyed about your books and hope you don’t sacrifice it. And that’s about the quality of the relationships you build between your main characters. I’m not talking about the obvious tensions that drive a good story but, rather, how you take us inside the main characters, at least the good guys, to describe the secret intimacies they feel for one another. That’s what drives your stories for this reader. What keeps me reading is that I care how your characters work things out, and this has a lot to do with those little things your characters know about and feel about each other. Their self-knowledge becomes important. (Well, not the villains, of course.) An occasional high speed chase and gripping “peril” is good, too, but I wouldn’t sacrifice those subtle intimacies for the sake of building in more of the usual sensationalism of screeching tires, “noirish” brutishness, or apocalyptic devices.

    Did you think of an outside the approach, wherein your publisher allowed you to keep your ebook as is and they publish the paper with the plot they like? That duality alone would generate some interesting publicity, me thinks. But I am a reader, not a writer. Tim Hallinan made a good call by going it alone on his Junior Bender series, when the publishing world wasn’t beating a path to his door and the ones that were weren’t offering much. Tim made the right call as the Junior Bender series hit double pay dirt down the road. Good luck. I have yet to read a book of yours, (so many authors, so little time) but genuinely want to. Best, Kevin

    Catherin Coulter is collaborating for the first time not because she has to but because she wants She said she has this story in mind but she just didn’t have time.

    As busy as your are with two books soon to be released, working with someone with like minds should be great for both of you and even great for your fans and followers.

    If you are collaborating with an author who has a successful series such as you Jackson series, the end result is unlimited. Go For It
