Here's the cover for my May e-novella, "The Duchess of Love," that introduces my new series about a matchmaking mother and her three sons.
I originally planned the series as only a trilogy with the duchess a widow, but then my agent suggested I write the duchess's love story. Once I met the duke, I couldn't kill him off! I had to revise my plans. The duke became a character, and his oldest son got "demoted"--he couldn't be the title holder any longer. That changed a lot about his story--more than just how I referred to him.
It's a good thing I'm more of a "pantser"--a "go with the flow" kind of writer--than a strict plotter.
