Finished your book this afternoon. Enjoyable read. I found it quite interesting being an historical novel based on your research and facts. I think what I enjoyed most though was the evolution of the “proper English Aristocratic ideals” meld with their developing naturism. I think one excerpt said it all…“Nancy’s knees trembled as she took the first few steps but then steeled herself. If she was going to do this it would be in proper style. She was British…”. I loved the whole British/Naturists aspect. Was really fun.
I’m always proud to know that people appreciate my work.
As some of you know I’m working on the third book of Mirror Earth. As usual I don’t have the foggiest idea what will happen once I’ve determined the main story line.
I never know the details of what I’m going to do. I’ve tried making good and thorough plans for stories and those always go belly up unless they fall flat on their face.
So I was writing this and that and here and there, and then it was time to go to work. Got dressed, into the car and off I went. Along the way I was thinking about what I’d just done and I had this odd idea which I’m not going to tell you or you won’t need to read the book and then I’ve written it for nothing so forget that.
Anyway, at work I took a few moments to Google what I had thought up and blimey, buster, it fit the story perfectly!
It’s like clockwork clicking together its cogs and sounding the bell at the right time. I was totally stunned about that. Sometimes I have to twist some detail’s arm a bit to cooperate but this just worked.
It has to do with this thing on the right. That’s all I’m going to tell you about it. If you know what this is then I congratulate you on knowing things. Well done indeed.
I’ll now continue working on Mirror Earth 3, for which I don’t have a proper title yet. That’s okay though. It’s not a proper book yet either. It will come.
First of all: a great, big thank you to everyone who appreciates the books I’ve written so far. I wouldn’t be able to write them without you. Believe me that your reading enthusiasm helps me in writing more books and hopefully better ones.
Here’s a little update on what’s going on in the writing arena.
My faithful editor has taken it upon himself to go over Naked Crow 6. He’s working on it so I can see where I messed up. Being the good man that he is he’s not laughing too hard at the mistakes.
Unfortunately I haven’t gotten any inspiration (read: good subject) to put into a possible Naked Crow 7. It can still happen but I make no predictions.
I’ve started writing Mirror Earth book 3. It took me a while to find the good points to put in there and I think I found them so I started on that.
I’m slowly making progress with the historical naturist fiction story I started long ago. It’s not an easy one to write; it requires research and thought. I hope it will pay off though.
That’s what’s going here at the writing desk of this author.
Please bear and bare with me for the next book to arrive. In a few weeks I’ll write something about the new Naked Crow book that’s being scrutinised at the moment. Things like the title, and perhaps even the cover image.
