I have no idea either! Just like you, I don’t wanna reveal too much of my MC’s backstory because it will be revealed throughout the series. Same with my recurring characters…
I have a vague idea of something that might be fun to do BUT my MC wouldn’t show up in this cookie because it’s not about her… So new readers who read the cookie but not the book would be disappointed to find out that the book is not about the same character they read about in the cookie!
So I thought “maybe I can do a cookie about this other character that my beta-readers and editor liked” and the MC could appear in this cookie, but I have no idea what to write about him that wouldn’t reveal too much about the MC’s past (he’s family).
ARGH! It’s maddening!
