Hey writing gang. Just a quick matter of curiosity I'm hoping you all can help me settle. When editing a manuscript that happens to be a SEQUEL, do you ever go back and add things to the first book in the series? I know this is super specific, but I suppose this is assuming both manuscripts are not finalized.

I found myself doing this with my scifi series, Strand. I happened to start drafting the second book before the first was done editing. There were certain story details that I thought would be enhanced by some foreshadowing back in the first book, so I went back and added them in. Has this ever happened to anyone else? Curious to hear!
