Mean things done to characters: Bethany is having her photo taken. *g*
She's also in a cellar with a serial killer.
Getting the tone right for this novel is hard, especially for this opening scene. I had a false start from last year but I had to scrap it all. The murderer was doing the bulgy-eyed, demented murderer thing and it was just wrong, wrong, wrong. It needs to be more subtle.
Off to write more words before I start marking the first assignments from the latest batch of fiction writing students.
