While I have been waiting to hear back from my agent about book 4 in the “Sapphire Chronicles”, (“Repercussions Abound”), I have started developing characters for book 5, “The Thief Master of Ravensburg”. This is going to be a radical departure from the first four books. The characters are nearly all different than the ones you are used to and Linvin is not in it at all! Now, those of you who have followed me for years are going to say, “Wait a minute, he plans his stories out ahead of time.” That is true but new characters still need to be developed. That is one of the most fun parts of writing. Taking a wisp of an idea and forming it into a full blown person. It is so exciting. Then you get to create scenes that display this person’s attributes. They interact with one another to grow them even further. Then I get to add a new backdrop to the story. The city of Ravensburg is like nothing I have ever written about before. The geography of the city is different. The people are different. And the main characters are very different. We have thieves, a blacksmith and a messenger boy to name a few. There is a strong female character who drives the story as well. If that doesn’t peek your interest, an old character who became central in “Repercussions Abound” is falsely accused of murder and must clear his name in order to have any chance of a future; let alone living. We will be going from the country to the city and it will leave you speechless. First I must publish the current book but then the next boo will be ready to write. It’s hard to wait. In a way it’s like waiting for your children to be born.
Fantasy fiction is my passion. This series embodies my love for a good story and action. You will find it to be many things, but not boring! Read what you love and love what you read...
