Researching specific topics or locations for a novel has always been a form of entertainment for me. In this time of social distancing, research has also substituted for planned vacations. Browsing through photographs, taken before lockdown, replaces the activity of local excursions.
In the month of June, I will begin a new blog series - NOVEL RESEARCH From the Writer's Perspective - starting with a special post featuring authors who have previously participated in an interview that included this final question:
Researching a new novel takes the author on a journey to many new places, whether through books, movies, newspapers, or physical travel. What did you most enjoy about the research process of your recent novel or WIP (work-in-progress), and where did the research take you?
Authors to be featured in the June 2nd premier post are:
- Elizabeth Wilder (E.E. Wilder) Granite Hearts
- Cheryl Lynn Martin Pineapples in Peril
- Sandra Nikolai False Impressions
