Just Another Manic Monday

Pamela Tracy here, and what you see above is really a chalk drawing on the cement. An amazing artist in England, Julian Beever, create it. I like this one because of the suspense. How did he get up there? Who (or what) chased him? What happens when he falls? Will he be a victim and I'll have to come up with the killer and then someone who is in danger (maybe the man on the poles wife or girlfriend or maybe an innocent witness)? If he makes it down alive, will he be wounded? Chased?

This is why I love writing suspense: all the possibilities.

So, what do you think? Will he make it to the bottom of the pole?

Pamela Tracy's current release (this month!) is not a suspense, really, but there is a mystery... who took the money? Why was Joel framed? When he figures out the answer, will it cost him the woman he loves?

Buy the book and find out!

I love all the detail he worked into the picture, like the fact that he's sitting atop a May Pole, so there are people below him. What are the letters on the ground.

Kinda like your suspense books. Many layers to peel away to find the answer. :)

I love the "what ifs" about suspense writing. I ask myself "what would happen if" about a zillion times in the course of each novel. Such fun to imagine (and safe because I don't have to acutally live through all these terrible situations.

Ah, I'll have to go look at the letters on the ground.

I'd be the first to fall if I tried to live a suspense.
