I have one book at the publisher, one book being read by a friend before I send it to another publisher, one book that I’m struggling to come up with conflict and another that I just started. Have to keep on writing, but I keep messing up my characters’ names from one book to another. I bought a dry erase board to list their names by individual book and I’m still messing them up!
My poor female lead character has been called three different names in less than thirty pages. Maybe that’s why some authors use the same characters in each book – they don’t have to remember their names.
