Evolution of a story

Notebook… manuscript… paperback…

A picture is worth a thousand words, but this one shows how my random scribblings mutated into a note-riddled beta reader manuscript and finally a 110,000-word fantasy/sci-fi book.

You’re looking at 18 months of work (blood, sweat, and frantic keyboard bashing) in which the nugget of a hint of a glimpse of an idea from my first novel, Mrs God, became the core of its 420-page sequel.

Once the book is released on February 29 the final mutation will begin – words will become imaginings in the minds of readers. Which is all kinds of terrifying and exciting.

And isn’t that why we scribble in notebooks in the first place…

Notebook… manuscript… paperback… mind.
