My Goals for Seismic Crimes
All writers have a goal or several for the book they’re writing. They may want it to make readers laugh or scare them. They may want to explore a certain character type or share an emotional story.
For Seismic Crimes, I had two main goals:
Hurricane Crimes was solely in Beth’s POV, so we didn’t get to know Donovan, which at the time was my goal. I wanted him to be mysterious. But for Seismic Crimes, I wanted to reveal every side to Donovan and make him relatable. I did that by writing every other chapter in his perspective. I showed his grief, anger and passion. Sharing his life, experiences and thoughts helps us to understand the man that is Donovan.
Donovan and Beth declare their love for each other at the end of Hurricane Crimes, but they barely know each other. Growing their relationship was my second goal for this book. I accomplished that by letting them do what all couples do when they first meet and start dating. They talked and asked questions, went on dates, traveled together, enjoyed the holidays, met their families and, of course, were intimate. Very intimate. 😉
