Ebooks with Rockin’ Research

By Cate Dean

Research. For some writers, it is the bane of their storytelling existence, and they choose a genre that doesn’t really need it. Or they do enough to fulfill the requirements for their story. Other writers love it, and find inspiration and ideas while indulging in that love.

I love research, with a capital L. There is nothing more exciting than standing in the spot where your main character is going to face her greatest danger. To be able to touch, see, smell—it can be so inspiring, and can also dramatically change the way a writer tells the story.

I have been to Dover Castle, on the South East coast of England, several times, gathering research for my YA time travel series. If I had not taken the time to travel there, to walk the cliff where the castle stands, I never would have known how the wind coming off the English Channel can be so strong it can literally pop open buttons on a blouse. (Yes, personal experience.) Or that the air can be so still, the water in the harbour looks like glass.

That sweeping historical epic you read – the one that literally pulled you into the time period? That happened because of careful attention to detail, discovered in extensive research.

What do my fellow authors think of research? Here are a few tidbits I gathered.

Greg Carrico, author of Apocalypstick, says: the first novel I wrote was set in fourteenth century England. I researched the locations entirely online, but came across a couple of people with blogs and small websites who were able to help me add some meat to my descriptions via email. Ultimately, my final draft included some modifications to include the information I had discovered.

Bailey Bristol, author of Love Will Follow, says: I love the research almost as much as I love the writing. And without the research, my scenes would lack dimension, color, authenticity. I can’t live in the era in which I write, but my research immerses me in it. And that’s when the scenes start popping in my head!

Stacey Joy Netzel, author of the Welcome to Redemption series, says: these days, my writing still requires some research, as I’m sure it always shall, but most, if not all of what I need to know is much easier to find with a Google search, or by posting a question to Twitter or Facebook. I wouldn’t say that I hate doing the research, but I don’t love the process. I do like learning, but the whole time I am reading for research, I am eager to get back to my writing.

Meredith Bond, author of Magic in the Storm, says: Love it! When I wrote Regencies, I would spend a few months doing research before I even started writing. I had the most fun when I did my research for what was published as “Love of My Life”, the first half of which is set in Calcutta during the Raj. I read a lot on exactly how the Indians were treated by the British. It’s almost sad that I’m writing fantasy now because there’s no research involved – I make up the world. Basically, if I can think of a reason to research, I’ll jump on it.

Tamara Ward, author of Storm Surge, says: It’s a love-hate relationship for me. Sometimes, if I’m fascinated by the subject, it’s a lot of fun. But if it’s something I’ve got to do to make sure I’ve got my facts straight, for instance determining police procedure following a shooting, research is not always my favorite past time.

There are as many ways to research as there are writers. As much as I love it, there will be a writer who considers it a trial. Ultimately, as storytellers, we will do what is necessary to get that story out of our head and on to the page.

I hope you enjoyed this peek into a writer’s process. We may lock ourselves in a room, staring at a computer screen for hours on end, but we do it for love of the story. And the end result of those hours is the chance to share that story with you.

    • Wavin’ atchya, Kathy…this one is not available for Nook right now…

      Let us know if you’d like a Kindle Gift Copy, and we’d be glad to send it to ya!

      Cheers and Happy Ereading!!!

  1. Apocalypstick sounds like a great read! Would love to win it for my Kindle. Thanks again for all the great books and authors to choose from!

  2. Thank you, D.D., for letting me play with this topic! I am a research JUNKIE, though I have found other writers enjoy it a bit less than I do. And thank you for adding a pic! Dover Castle really is a take-your-breath-away place.

    To all the authors who took the time to offer their own views on researching – thanks, guys!

    *And just a note – the time travel series comes out this summer, with book one, but there is a preview in my novella. Thanks again, D.D., for having me on RG2E. You rock!

  3. Pingback: Research – love it or hate it? My fellow writers and I spill the truth «

  4. Could I get some of that Cate Dean, Sleight of Hand love? Dee Dee has got me started on Romance, and I can’t stop! We might even see what happens when a Horror writer writes a “love story”… maybe…

    • WooHooo, Greg…Welcome to the Wonderful World of Romance Ebooks!!!

      Got a Kindle Gift Copy of Sleight of Hand on its way to ya!

      Happy Ereading!!!

      P.S. Some “love” stories end up being “horror” stories too…just sayin’…so there’s room for those tales too.

      • I Just started Carats and Coconuts last night. I really enjoy your style. Very easy and fun to read. Don’t tell anyone that I bumped you to the top of the list… shhh…

        I have a 3-part reading cycle, these days. 1 book for pure fun, 1 for edcuation/research, and 1 one that’s completely outside the scope of my “Normal” reading (read Romance, Biography, memoir). So far, it’s a great experiment!

          • Thanks, neatstorm. Be my guest! The best way to see success with this method is to begin with Apocalypstick, by Greg Carrico. I hear it’s not entirely painful. 😉
            Cheers!
            ~Greg

        • Your secret is safe with me, Greg! LOL!

          I’m over the moon to hear you’re luuuvvvin’ my Cozy Cash Mystery Worlds!!!

          I have a ball writin’ ’em for ya!!!

          Cheers, my friend, and Happy Ereading!!!

          P.S. I do the exact same thing as you for a reading cycle, but I also add a couple of different genres to the mix as well as magazines too!!!

    • For anyone who hasn’t read the Welcome to Redemption series, this a really great contemporary romance. If you have the opportunity to read them I don’t think you will be disappointed, I loved them myself. Stacey and Donna wrote a wonderful blend of books that coincide with each other.

  5. I would love to read Love Will Follow by Bailey Bristol in my Kindle Cloud. The begianing had me caught up in it, now I want to know Kittie’s story.
