It's been a while since I looked at the story because I've been working through the newest edit of my YA novel. It's been a brilliant and all-consuming journey of discovery as I follow Cole on his journey of revenge for the death of his father.
And it's not what Cole, or I, expected when I first wrote about the accident all those months ago. If you want to know what it is, watch this space.
In the meantime, the scriptwriting powerhouse that is Adrian Reynolds very kindly included me in his 'Next Big Thing' blogpost a couple of weeks ago - now I've completed rewrites and edits on my YA story, it's the perfect time for me to answer the same questions he did, and pass the blog baton on to another great writer.
So if we're all ready, here we go...
The characters inside the book. And the world they live in. Because their story needs to be told.
Right, that's enough about me, here's someone else with a story to tell about the story they're telling:
Ian writes for both children and adults. His first non-fiction book, A Children’s History of Nottinghamshire, was launched at Waterstones and sold over 1500 copies in the first month. The book proved popular with local schools and libraries and Ian now visits schools with his History Roadshow, a lively mix of pictures, quizzes, storytelling, and classroom activities.
Ian recently won second place in the Meridian writing competition and his work is currently to be seen at the Museum of Childhood. Click here to read more about Ian’s journey through the centuries and here for an interview with the Nottingham Evening Post.
