It’s a strange thing writing. I mean, obviously it’s a weird thing to do. Trying to figure out words that sit in the right order and just ‘feel’ right is an odd way to spend your time. That’s only part of it though. Plotting is also a weird one. For a long time I have had the ending to my second book ‘The Embers of Hope’ clear in my mind. But, as the end approached the characters and situations began conspiring against my initial ideas. I was struggling…But with a little help from my friends – Don’t we all need that sometimes? – I relaxed, took a breath and had a rethink. The ending is re-born! and because of the characters input (yes, they do feel like real people now with their own rules and opinions) and good advice it will be all the better for it.
I thought it would be fun to share with you the VERY FIRST draft of the cover to the sequel. It’s a good distraction on the nights when I can’t string a sentence together (verbally or on the page). Be good to know what you think… a good companion to the first book?
Yes, that is Hugh Jackman as a placeholder (he hasn’t confirmed yet but I’m hopeful he will be up for the shoot). If not I’m sure Stu Key will come to the rescue with someone suitable.
P.s.Oh and don’t forget Goodreads. It really is a good site and well worth a look. Pasting your Amazon reviews there would be a huge help in my quest to be read too. Since joining I’ve gained some fans in Canada!
