I Hear Voices …
After a lengthy silence, Melissa, the main character in the third “It Happened” book decided she would speak to me again. She never said why, but I assume it’s because her book got shuffled from number 2 in the series to number 3. I started to hear voices about 3:00 a.m. on New Year’s Day. She shared a lot of interesting stuff, some of which was quite heartbreaking. But, I can’t tell you any more than that because that would create a spoiler, and we don’t want that now do we?
What I can tell you is Melissa is Roger Scott’s youngest sibling. Remember Roger from It Happened on Dufferin Terrace? Well, this is his baby sister’s book.
I can also tell you the location I’m using. This “It Happened” book will be set in the village of Percé, on the Gaspé Peninsula of the province of Québec.
Just off the shore is the famous Percé Rock which is where the “it happened” moment will take place.
At low tide, you can walk out to the rock, but you have to pay attention or you could find yourself trapped by the incoming tide.
But that’s enough about this book. I hope I’ve tempted you with these snippets of information.
Want to start at the beginning of the series? Here’s what the first book is about.
Miracle on 34th Street meets Sleepless in Seattle…
Toronto business consultant, Serenity Layne, knew the only person she could depend on was herself. Busy with her career, she has no time for other pursuits and life’s intangibles
Widowed for three years, Roger Scott, a data security specialist in Quebec City, is a single parent to his ten-year-old son, Adam.
On a day out on the Plains of Abraham with their black Labrador Retriever, Roger’s cell phone rings incessantly. Adam has played matchmaker and put his father’s profile on a number of online dating sites.
The week before Christmas, Serenity is heading up a series of meetings after a six-month study of the Canadian retail chain, jonathans. After an unpleasant encounter with one of the store managers, she escapes from the boardroom of the Château Frontenac Hotel, only to be bowled over by Roger and Adam’s dog.
Guilty over the accident, Roger invites Serenity out for a drink by way of apology. Over the course of the week, and spending time together, feelings long dormant for Roger are re-awakened. At the same time, emotions foreign to Serenity fill her with contentment and happiness.
Will the couple get their happily ever after?

I am very glad that your characters are speaking volumes to you. It is encouraging when that happens. Good luck with your new book.
Never Give UP
I’d much prefer it if they picked a more appropriate hour to come to me. This waking me up in the middle of the night isn’t fun. Especially, when I have to go to work the next day. 🙂
Ha! Yeah, I bet you wish they would speak to you at a more appropriate hour. Lol. I don’t write fiction, but I’ve heard from writer friends about how they speak to you at odd hours, in dreams, in meetings, etc and then you just have to get it written. I think that’s really cool. 🙂
