Continuity, when writing, means that you don't contradict previously established facts. If Jay Marinitch has hazel eyes in chapter one, he shoudn't have blue eyes in chapter twelve. And if a character was sleeping at 5am, they shouldn't be seen by another character at a coffee shop at that time.
This gets to be even more fun with sequels, especially when the previous books were published nine years ago.
Yes, I am finishing revisions on All Just Glass, and trying to make sure I don't give all you readers something to say, "Aha! You made a mistake!" about. I know you enjoy that, but I have to do my best to deny you the pleasure, anyway.
So back I go to reread Shattered Mirror, Post-it notes in hand, one more time before I turn this book in to Random House on Halloween. One nice coincidence is that ShatMir and AJG take place at pretty much this time of year. It's handy, being able to look out the window when I want a reference for weather.
I'm craving a pumpkin latte.
