Author Interview - Hinemura Ellison - on the sequel
BD: So Hinemura how's tricks? How is the sequel to ‘Sharks With Lipstick’ coming along?
HE: Well, funny you should say that, my partner in crime Ted and I have been working really hard on the second book in the Trinity Trilogy Series and it’s getting close to being finished.
BD: Really, do go on? How much can you spill? I hope it's more of the same characters. I did get quite addicted to the three besties. Are they back?
HE: Yes, Freya, Sven and Flat White are back in full force, along with some of the other characters, but the difference this time, is that this book focuses on Freya as the main character.
BD: Oh, so does Sven take a back seat for this one?
HE: Well yes and no. Freya comes into herself more in this book. We really don't know much about her in ‘Sharks with Lipstick’... I know it is old coinage, but she finds herself in this one, and we go along for the rollercoaster ride.
BD: And can we ask what the title is of this next book?
HE: Well you can, but my publisher may shoot me.
BD: What you mean it's even better than ‘Sharks with Lipstick’? Is that possible?
HE: Well yes. It’s a whole different ball game to get the series titles to fit in with each other, but we are bubbling with excitement.
BD: So, any clues?
HE: Well as you know ‘Sharks with Lipstick’ is predominantly about women. The next one is about men and their shady wheeling and dealing in the business world.
BD: Hmm how intriguing, so come on what’s the title?
HE: The sequel to ‘Sharks With Lipstick’ is, drum roll please… ‘Snakes In Suits’.
HE: We have also realised that we may need to change up the book covers, so I’ll get Ted to send them through once we have them back from the book cover artist. I just know that everyone will love the new covers and the juicy twisting plots as both ‘Sharks With Lipstick’ and ‘Snakes In Suits’ are set at the same time.
BD: Are you telling me that the plots of both books are intertwined?
HE: They sure are, and will also be tied into the third book, which we have started and which won’t be too far away.
BD: Wow, that’s a huge achievement! Congratulations, any hint on the third books title?
HE: You will have to talk to Ted about that, he’s still trying to decide over a couple of options.
BD: Great, well Hinemura thanks again for your time today and I look forward to talking with you and possibly the infamous Ted later.
HE: Ka kite...
