Elements of My Books

I juggle various elements in my books, in Celta it is the romance, character development (including Fam comic relief), a small mystery/suspense, world-building, a dash of the past and set up for the future. I admit that I am reluctant to cut any world-building/Fams and set up. I should probably cut more, but I am of the opinion that ESPECIALLY in the Celta books, my fans like the world-building, like knowing about HouseHearts or magical systems...or a touch of a different religion. And set up...well, I'm working on the intelligent Turquoise House right now....

Merrry meet and merry part and merry meet again.

Your fans definitely like the world building in your Celta books. We've been with these characters through so much personal as well as world growth. And, as far as the fams go, they add so much to the story line and to the personal growth of the characters.

ABSOLUTELY! I love these elements and they make Celta unique. Fams are essential... I periodically re-read the Celta books, and especially enjoy a Fam bit that I may have overlooked or forgotten.

yes definately love world building, and learning how things work. If you have to choose- you can cut the fams... I think they are cute, but I wouldn't necessarily miss them if their scenes needed to go. However, I am always interested to know what the housees think/feel..etc Thanks. & Keep Writing!!
