20 chapters deep on “Nikki Blue: Source of Trouble,” the sequel to “Streaks of Blue”

sourceoftroubleI’ve written 20 chapters so far and I think there will be at least 40 this time around, so it will be longer than “Streaks of Blue.” There are multiple points of view, though Nicole gets the first 12 chapters all to herself in Part 1. Part 2 has featured four different male characters’ points of view: Adam Upton, Roger Janicek (Nicole’s dad) and two new characters, William Osborne and Steve Pearson. Then it switches back to Nikki for 18 through 20.
It’s been interesting to fill in some of the blanks from the first book while at the same time sending Nikki on a whole new story arc. I still have many miles to go on it, but my goal at this point is to publish it by spring 2016.
Here is a chapter title listing so far:
1. Rainbows and Unicorns, Part 1
2. Enterprise Story
3. Weirdos Make the World Go Round
4. Hot Tip
5. Silver Sands
6. Busted in Bridgeport
7. 25 Grand
8. Money Trail
9. Coffee in the Lobby
10. The Other Kind of Auditing
11. Rainbows and Unicorns, Part 2
12. Your Enemy’s Enemy
13. As Long As We’re Both Being Honest
14. Climbing the Lion
15. Captain Rookie
16. Howl at the Moon
17. Nikki Blue
18. Earth Wing
19. Mars Wing
20. “I Crashed My Car Into The Bridge … I Love It”
