I’ve been trying to squeeze in spare moments to work on Certain Fathoms, and have made some progress reworking the outline. Last night I stayed up into the wee hours looking through the photocopies I’ve made over the past couple years while researching my real-life protagonist, and which now rise as a mountain of sorts on my desk. It’s easy to get lost on one’s way while trying to make a story historically accurate, so I’m working right now to find a good balance in my mind between being faithful to actual events and personalities and telling an entertaining and cohesive story. I hope to spend the whole day tomorrow chiseling out the outline tomorrow, in particular the middle portion of the novel.
Meanwhile, I recently got a sneak peak at the two stunning illustrations that will accompany “The Bear God” when it’s published later this year in a forthcoming anthology. I hope to have more details for you on the anthology shortly, and also some BIG NEWS on a related project. Stay tuned.
