FAIRYTALES WITH BITE
In Going AWOL, I discuss why I’ve been off site for a while. (The good news is life has become somewhat hectic and I’m preparing for my physical book launch for From Light to Dark and Back Again). I ask about your characters finding the right balance between promoting material and getting on with writing new material. I know I haven’t got the balance on that one myself!
THIS WORLD AND OTHERS
Back in Business looks at how your characters react to the changes to their lives the story has put them through? How do characters, sent away on a quest, react when they have to come back home and try to resume normality? How do villages etc react to characters coming back to them (especially given all characters change)? Can life ever be as it had been for your characters?
FACEBOOK – GENERAL
I flag up this week’s Chandler’s Ford Today post (appearing tomorrow), which will be about the art of the book review. I also share in this post some wonderfully honest and acerbic comments from Mark Twain. Now there was a man who could write an honest review…!
FACEBOOK – FROM LIGHT TO DARK AND BACK AGAIN
I share Valerie Penny’s review of my book tonight. It ties in beautifully with my CFT post as a great example of an honest review. I met Valerie at Swanwick last year and will do so again this year! One side benefit of writing events – you get to make friends!
