The details are also what make a good book. It's what makes characters come alive, and that's oh-so-necessary when dealing with exotic or supernatural creatures. It's all fun and magical and good until something gets forgotten. Damn.
In Nightwalker, I gave Mira and affinity for sunglasses. I thought the addition made her more human and they sometimes gave her something to do with her hands. They were also a necessity. When she becomes angry or somewhat emotional, her eyes will glow. A pair of sunglasses can help to mask it. So, throughout Nightwalker, you will see Mira putting on and taking off glasses of different colors.
Book 2 has been shipped to my editor and I just realized that I forgot to put the bloody freaking sunglasses in Book 2. Yeah, there's one edit. I'm sure I've got other issues and this one is a very quick fix, but it's such a silly thing to forget.
I will say that when maintaining a series, it's very difficult to remember all the random details.
What color sunglasses does Mira have with her while traveling?
Does she wear her ring on her left hand or right hand?
What color are Knox's eyes?
Sometime this summer, I will going through books 1, 2, and the short story and writing down on the miscellaneous details.
And for a bit of fun, I have a new quiz. Below are my results.
