It’s a good question, and I’m not really sure. I do know how the book opens – suddenly and bloodily – but I’m not sure where we go after that. I mean, I know the basic “wrap-ups” that you do when you do every Book 2, but after that I’m trying to find my way.
I need the meat of the story. For that, I’ll go to space…deep into space.
If we move out a bit we see that we’re just part of a larger solar interstellar neighborhood:
But there’s something even closer than that, and this is system here, Arcturus:
But it’s there, we know that. Epsilon Boötis is only 36 light-years away, and it plays a part in our story. So does the mothership that’s been parked behind Mercury since the French Revolution started, and so do the towers on the moon. We’ll even throw the rooms in the rings of Saturn in there as well.
Yes, this will be a fun and exciting book, and this gives you an idea of where I’m going with the story I hope. Part of it is space. In Book 1 we went deep underground and we’ll go even deeper, much deeper. So deep, in fact, that we’ll come out the other side.
Yes, this will be a very fun book, and I hope you’ll stay tuned to hear more about it!
