Let me be clear, at the moment, I ‘m just developing and writing one thriller. But I have mapped out in my mind two thematically connected trilogies. One has our planned for focus of a whole series of books as a baby and the other trilogy has her in a sort of the beginning of her journey as an American Lisbeth Salander.
Something like that.
I got to this point most recently when I finished a first draft of one novel and realized there was just way too much going on. It’s kind of like how the original screenplay for The Blues Brothers was like 300 pages long. It’s just too long and too unfocused.
So, I cut it two.
I did this after cutting ANOTHER version of this same book in two. This gave me three novels. I already had three other novels that I’m working on, so there you go.
It will be interesting to see what happens next.
