Aimee James is joining us with her contemporary romance series, Mr. Frost. Enjoy!
Favorite Part of Writing A Serial
When I started writing this serial, I really didn’t know how long each novelette would be or how long the series would be. I was inspired to start writing it after reading some other shorter stories. There is something definitely appealing to seeing results much faster as a serial than with a full length novel, and it was a LOT of fun to write!
I think the greatest thing about writing this serial was not knowing how it was going to end or where exactly Mr. Frost was going to go next. I really didn’t know until the end of each novelette. My own anticipation grew as I continued writing. I loved getting to know my characters. I also enjoyed doing to research on where things were happening. I learned things about The White House, San Diego and Seattle that I didn’t know before.
It was also an interesting experience as I walked the story down different paths only to delete a couple thousand words because it was just… wrong. I re-wrote the ending of “Part 1” a couple times and ended up scrapping a whole conspiracy twist that kind of unfolded with his parents. I realized it was a huge buzz kill to the story and I didn’t want it to go there.
I also re-wrote the ending of the whole series twice because it just didn’t seem right. I was surprised by how it ended as I think a lot of people will be. However, for multiple reasons, I am glad it ended the way it did.
Having this first series of novelettes out has been a huge boost to my creative side and I can’t wait to get started on a new serial very soon. I hope everyone enjoys it.
Also, please stay in touch via Facebook or Twitter, as Mr. Frost has some very eligible and wealthy cousins in Los Angeles we may get to meet very soon.
