Fans Influence on Story
Before I began publishing, I believed I would write the story I envisioned and never cave to fan pressure. I was wrong.
It’s not even pressure, it’s just a desire to do right by those who love what I do.
Before I published Stopover at the Backworlds’ Edge [book 2 in the Backworlds series], a fan sent me an email based on the excerpt at the back of The Backworlds [book 1]. His note led to a slight revision of the early chapters in Stopover, because his comments were right.
No matter what, I want to deliver the best book I can.
More fan letters arrived. Many said how much they loved Talos and Lepsi, two of the main character’s [Craze] friends.
I wrote book 2 before book 1, and originally it was Lepsi’s skull found in Stopover. Before I finished book 3 [Boomtown Craze], I knew that couldn’t be true. Fortunately, I hadn’t boxed myself into his death.
Beyond the Edge was written for those awesome, supportive fans. Craze and his companions find out what happened to Lepsi and more than they wanted to know.
