I find it endlessly fascinating how book concepts change as you start working on them. When I first envisaged Darleston's story all I had were a few snapshots and a general feeling about the tone of the book. I thought it probably revolved around a murder. It was also firmly planted in a timeline of events I knew had to occur before AGW3.
I thought Vaughan would be a presence in this book, now I'm not so certain. I suspect all the conversations I have sketched between him and Darleston actually take place between the end of Fortuna's book and the beginning of Darleston's book. I'm not sure what to do about them, maybe we'll see a few flashbacks to them, maybe I'll turn them into a stand alone story, or maybe (if I'm feeling particularly cruel) I'll keep them to myself.
Anyway, a murder may still be on the cards, but the rest of Darleston's book has changed quite a bit. You can blame the heroine for that.
I'm starting to really like her :-)
I'm also growing rather addicted to my m/m seckrit project. And that's all I'm saying about that.
