I am talking about all books need a little mystery. And I am not necessarily talking about who killed who. Rather, I am talking about mystery surrounding a character or place or event.
Making it Real means enabling your readers imagination.
The Bible talks about there being a time for this and a time for that. Is there a time for swearing? Don’t people swear?
Of course, they do! And some people, not all, swear profusely. But should a writer include swear words?
Anytime the reader uses his or her imagination it is a good thing.

Should I Write a Series or a Single Book?
I have written single books and I’ve written books within a series. The answer really depends on you. Some people only want to write one or two books at the most. And that is fine.
For such people I would encourage them to think about multiple books, series or not.
Forming an image is a lot like painting, except the canvas is your mind.
