When Bad Things Happen to Good Characters

I’m finally past dayjob-overtime-from-hell month and can spend a little time thinking of ways to torture my series characters. Funny thing about a series. In one book, you kind of wrap things up; in the next, everything gets shot to crap again.

So far, I have:
–A character who has developed substance-abuse problems;
–Another character on the run from a necromancer;
–A wizard stuck in a marriage to an elf;
–A dog that isn’t really a dog;
–A couple of characters who, hurt and angry, are about to have some hurt and angry sex;
–A kid who’s about to be turned vampire;
–Oh, and a few murders.

That all sounds like such fun. Now, if only it was written!
