Argh Argh!

So on the spur of the moment, I created a new, minor character for the BLACKLIST novel.  He was meant to be a last-minute obstacle for Keen to overcome before the main event.  And when I put him in the scene, I realized that a seven-foot-tall guy wouldn't have gone unnoticed elsewhere in the book, so I would have to go back and seed his presence in a scene or three.  So I went back to an earlier scene to do this.

However, this meant I had to create some dialogue for him, and give him a name.  And speech patterns.

And he turned out kind of interesting.  And more vital to the plot.  So I had to spend two hours weaving him into the rest of the book.

When I'm already under tight deadline.  Argh argh!

See, just from talking about him casually as you just did, I feel like I want to learn more about him. So it's probably a great addition, even if difficult given the deadline. I look forward to getting the book when it comes out now :) When will it be published? Fall sometime?

The current pub date is November, 2016, so yes! I'll keep this space updated, most definitely.

Excellent. I feel you are doing this right. (And I speak as a major fan of the Blacklist.)
