As I’ve mentioned before, The Wanderer’s Guide to Dragon Keeping is a project I’ve wanted to do for a very long time. It’s changed names, characters, and even the basic plot, but it’s still a dream come true to know that very soon people will be reading it! It seems, however, that I am in book mourning.
You know that feeling when you finish reading a book, and it’s so good that you just can’t possibly turn right around and pick up something different? Like it would be an insult to the characters and the story to move on to something else so quickly? Well, it’s the same way when you’ve finished writing. And I’ve spent A LOT more time writing this book than anyone will ever spend reading it.
Sure, I have other book projects that have been floating around for awhile, waiting for their turn. The sequel for The Graveside Detective (for which I also mourned greatly….I was so attached to Frank) is just begging to be written. But for the moment, it’s going to have to wait. I need some time to get over this one.
