CiCi Cordelia’s work-in-progress, The High Society Wife, will make the fifth book in a series that originally started as an idea for a trilogy.
Calling this process challenging would be an understatement, but it’s been so much fun for Cheryl Yeko and Char Chaffin, the puppeteers behind CiCi.
Writing during COVID has also been a mental challenge. All that a quarantine entails—the self-isolation and distancing—is rough on co-writers who bounce ideas off each other like crazy. Writing retreats were a no-go this year, and phone chats, whether video or otherwise, can be limiting. Worry over family health takes its toll, but somehow through all of that mess, Cheryl and Char managed to keep the ideas, the research, and the creative juices flowing, with just a few stalls in the road.
The High Society Wife is the fifth book in the Little Creede series and part of the second trilogy that follows more of The Boom Town That Could. 😊 A third, new-generational trilogy has already been plotted out, taking the town and its spunky citizens into a new century, thanks to readers who can’t seem to get enough!
