I have been tracing out the structure of the story for Book Four of the Storyteller’s Quest using as a starting point the two chapters already written. It’s not an easy task because I need to keep track of not only all the characters but also four (or rather three and a half) separate worlds in which the action is taking place. My diagram is riddled with little notes like: How did they do that? Who will do that? …
I have begun work again on the fourth book of The Storyteller’s Quest. I had written some two chapters but put them aside to work on another book. Now, I have transferred all the existing material into Scrivener, which I am using for the first time, and I am re-working the plan of the whole book. I don’t alway work to a detailed plan, but having one for the Starless Square turned out to be very useful.
And no! I haven’t made the cover of this book yet 🙂
I’m working on the idea of preparing an exhibition of artwork inspired by my novels. I have started collecting photos and I plan to go through my novels looking for quotes or images that could inspire related artwork. The idea is not to illustrate, but rather to be inspired by my novels. The picture above is related to The Starless Square, the 3rd book of The Storyteller’s Quest.
