Re: Pinned for Murder

It's great to hear your 'process'. I have always wondered how each authors characters 'came to be'. Maybe someday someone will write a whole book on different authors and their processes. I can dream.
Thanks!!!

I love your process and as I read each book, I'm feeling the same way about the women in the sewing circle.

What a wonderful process, really getting to know the quirks of the characters and building around that.

Thank you so much Elizabeth for your Southern Sewing Circle mystery series!
(
Cherie Michalec 7:50am October 26, 2010)

That is one of the best things about reading a series is getting to know all the characters and understanding what makes them act as they do.

That's a great way to start your work on characters.. I do some of the same things... its like I come up with a name for them then what they look like, what they like, where they are from or live and then its a real person to me.. Almost like she or he is sitting there telling me all about themselves. I feel I've made a new friend..Thanks for sharing your process and I cant wait to read your next book.. I do enjoy them a lot...

I'm from the South & will be the first to admit it's unique. We've lived a lot of places & my middle son swears you should need a passport to go home...I enjoyed the glimpse into how your characters evolve & live for you, just as they do for readers, how cool!

I'm so glad that you had a chance to write your blog!! I tend to gravitate to books that have to do with different crafts, since I'm a knitter, crocheter, and do other needlework as well. Since your story line has to do with a sewing circle, and a mystery to boot, I should feel right at home reading it!! I should fit right in with your cast of characters, too!! I also enjoyed reading about your thought process creating the characters.
(
Peggy Roberson 10:39pm October 26, 2010)

I love a good mystery

"They become our friends. Friends we root for, friends we yell at, friends we seek out every six to twelve months simply because we miss them.

Reading really doesn’t get any better than that."

You're right. It really doesn't!!

Later,

Thanks for the explanation and writing the stuff I want to read with characters I get attached to. If characters didn't change, it would be tedious. So here's to the growth and development of more sides to the main cahracters and a new crop of minor ones.
