Why does Sherlock keep finding crystals?
If you’ve read THE CASE OF THE MISSING MASCOT, you may be wondering what the deal is with the piles of crystals teen sleuth Sherlock Shakespeare encounters twice during her investigation. If you haven’t read it yet, the answer to that question won’t spoil anything about the case.
Either way, today we’re diving inside the book to give you the info Sherlock doesn’t have as she searches for the school’s missing mascot.
In the book…
As Sherlock enters a room that she’s searching for information on the mascot’s location, she notices what she describes as little piles of rocks in the corners of the room. She also notices that more of these strange object are hanging on the pull chains of the ceiling fan. She doesn’t know what they are during the two scenes she encounters them, but she doesn’t think much about them. After all, she is working against the clock to find Champers before Homecoming.
But since you aren’t up against that same deadline, you may’ve wondered why anyone would keep rocks in the corners of a room. Especially in two separate places. I mean, it’s not like you see this every day.
Unless you’re hanging out at my house, that is.
In real life…
As the first books I thought to release out into the world, I’m slightly attached to the Undercover Series. In one way or another, I’ve been working within its created world for the last 12 years. Not only do I know what’s happened to everyone on the page, but I know their backstories and what’s still in store for them. I also know all the rules for the universe in which all these characters live as though I lived there myself, making it a breeze for me to come back to the characters after a long break from writing them and pick up where I left off.
But it occurs to me, y’all don’t have all this inside information. Let’s start to change that, shall we?
My soul is empty,
My heart incomplete;
My love lies bleeding
And so I weep.
Well, y’all, we are exactly two months until Love Lies Bleeding (Undercover Series Book 4) will be available. In the spirit of holiday giving, I thought I’d give you a little taste of what you can expect in the next book. Well, not so little. We’re looking at four scenes today.
But here’s the thing…if you haven’t read Foresight is Flawless yet, leave now or ye shall be spoiled.
Like BIG TIME SPOILED.
I’m talking the entire epilogue will be an anticlimactic experience of epic proportions if you keep reading.
Seriously, spoilers ahead.
Does it seem like I’m just vamping and drawing this out? I am. Gotta make sure none of the actual spoilage that I’m about to post accidentally feeds into social media somewhere.
Cause, you know, accidental spoilage is the worst kind. You’re like, “Oh, cat picture, cat picture, random book promo, holy crap that actually just happened and now I know the end of book 3. NOOOOO!!!!”
Ahem. Anyway, here’s your special sneak peak of Love Lies Bleeding*. Enjoy!
