Yes, I have a plan to tell their stories in future books.
When Dissecting the Hack was first released, I read it again and began to recall many of the layers that took shape in the process of writing this first story. Many of the actions of the characters are based on things I haven’t yet had the chance to share with you.
In the last year as we were working on the revised edition, I had a second chance to give these characters some more depth. I used Twitter kind of like the extra material on a DVD. Directors get to bring back material that landed on the floor of the editing room. I was able to give you a chance to see some “extra content” that gives you just a little more information about the story. You could see into some of the characters’ motivations and thinking.
This project was not to fool anybody or prove how clever I was. It was simply a way to keep telling a story I loved and help you better understand the
people characters I already know so well.
Now that the “secret” is out, they will not die off. But they will sleep for a while. When the next book gets closer to print they will hopefully have more to share with you. New characters will also appear. Again, it’s not an attempt to fool anyone. It’s just another way to tell the story. (For those of you who figured out the “secret” and kept quiet so everyone else could enjoy, Thank You!)
Stick around – there are more adventure, puzzles, white hats, black hats, romance, heartbreak, danger, and heroics for all of these characters and more in the years ahead.
