Book Three is done. DONE. Gone to the editor and already received. Whew.
I have a completed manuscript that I'll probably pitch next to my editor, and then it's time to buckle down and work on a proposal for another three-book series. (Actually, I'm hoping it'll turn into a multi-book series, but let's start with the first three and see how it goes).
Let me just preface what I'm about to say by saying one thing---I think my new series idea is going to be based around a security agency filled by former government agent types--CIA, DEA, FBI, Secret Service, Diplomatic Security Service, former military, etc. They have all left their government work to work for this security agency, whose mission is to do the jobs that the government can't--or won't--do.
So, with that in mind, because I'm completely open for ideas within the parameters of that set-up, what are some of the "hooks" you like most? Secret baby? Marriage of convenience? Bad boy/good girl? Bodyguard hero? Lay 'em on me.
