As a general rule, you shouldn’t find a corpse laying about in the morgue, days after it’s been buried. It is entirely possible that you’d spot a corpse in the morgue prior to a funeral, but, after the funeral, that would be unusual. And yet, that’s what I did. I set a scene in the morgue several days after the funeral. And I didn’t notice that the dead body didn’t belong there. Fortunately, my editor did.
That is just one of the many useful things about having a good editor.
I’m spending this week, and probably next week as well, rewriting my latest manuscript to address this, and other astute comments from my editor. And, as soon as the contracts have been executed, I’ll have something more to say about the stand-alone mystery with the working title, Death and White Diamonds.
