The other thing I've been pondering quite a bit is the multi-cultural aspect of the story. The male lead is Mexican, and the ghost story revolves around La Llorona (which scared the piss out of me as a child). Anyhow, despite speaking Spanish and having spent the better part of my youth with the almost entirely Hispanic population in my hometown, I always worry I'm going to miss-represent something. It's tricky. For now, I think it's just write the story as it comes, but it is in the back of my mind, and I know I'll have to seriously go through the scenes later, checking for any kind of inconsistencies. Always fun....
And now, back to reading LINGER. Seriously, one of the best books I've read is ages. I'm forcing myself to savor it and not just sit down and read it in one sitting, which is killing me!
