After the release of Jago earlier this year I’ve been working on a plan for the second novel in the series, Coyote.
I needed a spine to hang the story on, and planned it to be based around one of the characters, Esta Healer, so I had a peruse through my notes to see what I’d already written. Then I discovered 10,000 words I’d forgotten I’d written, about different character, Jester.
Et voila, as the frog-eaters say. I have the spine on which to hang the narrative of Coyote.
And the original character-idea will now do for the third book, Harm’s Way. Which is 2-3 years hence and in which Esta is a more central character.
