Continuity

In writing the spinoff Socko novelettes, I’ve inevitably had to address issues that have either already happened – or will happen – in the main Flick Carter novels. Characters that appear in one series must be consistent if they appear in the other. And already I have introduced new characters in the Socko stories that have gone on to appear in the “main series”. Colonel Stewart (the king’s bodyguard), and Babs Clegg of the Oxford City Watch to name just two.

Socko is several years older than Flick, and naturally his story starts before hers does. But at some point they are going to coincide, if for no other reason than that he appears in all three novels. And that means keeping track, not only of where I am in Socko’s timeline, but also where Socko is in Flick’s (and where all the other characters are too.)
