Jan Sikes hosts Mae Clair with news of her latest release on pre-order for June 12th. Cusp of Night (Hode’s Hill Series) Find out all about the book and read and excerpt…
Hi, Jan! Many thanks for inviting me to your blog today. I have a new release I’m thoroughly jazzed to share with your readers. Cusp of Night is a mystery/suspense novel that weaves timelines of the present with those of the past. Dual timelines are becoming trendy in fiction today, a pattern I’m more than happy to embrace. As a reader I’m thoroughly besotted by the idea. As a writer, I found it challenging to undertake.
Writing a book with dual timelines means you’re not telling one tale, but two. That means two sets of characters and two plots.
In Cusp of Night I have a mystery involving an assault and a mysterious “creature” set in modern day. Running parallel to that story is another tied to a murderous creature and the Spiritualist movement of the late 1800s. Both mysteries have to dovetail into a tidy bow at the end.
