Character Interrogation vs. The Sequel
Of course, I can't just suddenly have them helping out in the second book, out of the blue. So, as a result I have had to fix these characters in the outline of my original manuscript. They are going to have a bigger part in that story as to help push the second story along. That way my readers aren't blindsided by these new people. They don't suddenly spring up out of no where.
Then again, they could, but I don't want them to. Especially since most of their work is done "off set" in the second story.
Your Turn -> Have you ever realized that you needed to tweak the first story to help propel the second?
