I have passed the half-way mark in The World o’Tales, book four of the Storyteller’s Quest. Chapter eight is finished and over 90’000 words written. Chapter eight was a key turning point, not only in the story but also in writing the book. There was a sudden, unexpected breakthrough of considerable violence that set things wildly in motion only to reach an emotional head and some form of resolution at the end of the chapter.
The opening of the exhibition will be on Tuesday, September 6th 2011, on the Artwork Gallery. Join us then …

If you’ve read my post about the forthcoming publication schedule for Secret Paths Editions, you’ll know that the title of the fourth book of The Storyteller’s Quest is The World o’Tales. There’s no cover art as yet for the book, but I have already written just under half the book, seven chapters amounting to eighty thousand words. Lengthwise then, it is likely to be as long as book three, The Starless Square (162’000 words). The World o’Tales follows the adventures of Brent, Sally, Keira, Jenny and the others. It also paves the way for book five, the title of which I won’t give you just yet. If all goes well, book five will be available in print and ebook format in 2013. The World o’Tales should be published in Autumn 2012.
Posted a number of photos of the Neuchâtel Buskers Festival in the Snapped Gallery.
