<p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Writing an Engaging Series: A Look at FBI Thriller ON THE COUNT OF THREE</strong></p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">Article by Carolyn Arnold</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">The more books you write in a series, the steeper the challenges. The overall plot, the killer(s), the method, the victimology are rather easy. What is more difficult is coming up with ways for your characters to grow. It requires that you dig deep into out their backgrounds, their motivations, and their experience. If authors get lazy in this regard, it will show in the final product.</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">For this reason, I endeavor to interview my characters to really drill down and find out what about the plot has that can parallel to their personal or professional lives. Sometimes it&rsquo;s harder than it sounds. When it came to writing <em>On the Count of Three</em>, I interviewed several of the characters&mdash;even ones outside the series&rsquo; main characters.</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">In this book, I&rsquo;m introducing someone who may become a part of the series and there&rsquo;s only one shot at a first impression. You need to make sure the character is strong and relatable&mdash;<em>real</em>&mdash;so that readers can connect with them and want to know more about that person. Further than that, you want the reader so invested in the character, they&rsquo;ll want to follow them for many books to come.</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">Also, if you&rsquo;re writing a police procedural series like me, it&rsquo;s crucial to get the facts right. If you&rsquo;re familiar with my work, you realize just how important this aspect is to me. I&rsquo;ve even adopted the trademark Police Procedurals Respected by Law Enforcement&trade;. This wasn&rsquo;t a decision that I chose, but rather that chose me. I&rsquo;ve had many people from law enforcement reach out to me over the years to tell me how accurate my books are. Some have said they even see themselves in the characters as if looking in a mirror.</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">So how do I get my facts right when I don&rsquo;t have a background in law enforcement? Research, but I&rsquo;ve also been blessed with a network of people who have experience in law enforcement to answer my questions. They are so understanding and selfless with their time in responding. What I&rsquo;ve found is they are appreciative that I am taking the time to make sure procedure is as accurate as possible.</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">I am pleased to say that even though the challenges can be great&mdash;and at times seem insurmountable&mdash;I believe my hard work has paid off again with the seventh instalment in the Brandon Fisher FBI series. <em>On the Count of Three</em> took much longer to finish up than I would have liked, but I believe the final product makes up for any delay.</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">I invite you to download a copy of <em>On the Count of Three</em> or order in paperback or hardcover from your favorite retailer. But be warned: this book isn&rsquo;t for the faint of heart.</p>


<p><strong><em><u>On the Count of Three </u></em><u>Book Overview:</u></strong></p>

<p><em>Drinking and driving may be deadly in more ways than one&hellip;</em></p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">When a woman&rsquo;s disappearance ticks off all the same boxes as two unsolved murders, Miami homicide detective Kelly Marsh is convinced there&rsquo;s about to be a third. If she&rsquo;s right and the killer sticks to their previous MO, she only has three days before Jenna Kelter&rsquo;s decapitated head will show up somewhere in the city. With no time to waste, Kelly reaches out to the one person she knows can help: her former mentor and family friend Jack Harper, who just happens to lead a team with the FBI&rsquo;s Behavioral Analysis Unit.</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">BAU special agent and profiler Brandon Fisher easily sees the similarities between Detective Marsh&rsquo;s missing person case and the two cold cases: all three victims served time for DUI vehicular homicide and disappeared three days after being released from prison. But is that enough to assume Kelter has been abducted by a serial killer? Brandon&rsquo;s not so sure and fears his boss may have let his personal connection to Marsh cloud his judgment. Surely there isn&rsquo;t any other explanation for why they jumped into an investigation less than twenty-four hours after Kelter was reported missing. Then again, maybe Brandon is letting his own differences with the detective affect his perspective. He&rsquo;ll need to move past it, though&mdash;and quickly.</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">After all, this killer has evaded capture for the past six years, and they may be looking at a lot more victims than originally suspected. This serial killer is calling the shots and pulling them into a macabre game of cat and mouse. While the team has no choice but to play, if they don&rsquo;t make the right moves, one of them may not make it out of Miami alive.&nbsp;</p>


<p style="text-align: justify;"><em>On the Count of Three </em>is available in e-book, paperback, and hardcover. Coming soon to audiobook. Readers can pick up a copy from their favorite retailer or request from their local libraries.</p>
