I had a great vacation. My trip to Poland was a worthwhile journey. Not only did I visit to learn more about the history of Warsaw but also focused on developing the direction of The Fox and the Girl series after the events of book two. Part of the book series takes place outside the United States, and I had to find a venue that works. Within the first day, after miles of walking and exploring, I discovered a beautiful park in the center of Warsaw. After walking the leaf covered paths and watching the ducks bath in a nearby pond, many new ideas formed. I had to rush back to the apartment to jot them all down. Over the next several days I returned to the same park and developed a good direction for the remaining books in the series. If all goes as planned, I see the entire series being seven books without dragging events out and allowing each character space and time to grow.
On one of my walks, I decided it was time to go old school and write the third book in the series by hand. If I had done a little research I might have seen there were plenty of book stores within a short walking distance but instead I walked three miles one way to visit the Arkadia Mall. The largest mall in Central Europe, I was a bit overwhelmed when I walked into the five story shopping center. They weren’t kidding when they said the place has between 10000 to 70000 visitors a day. The book store was right inside the entrance and after weaving in and out of the different aisles, I found a cool journey to write The Great Loon in.
Back in Italy, you’ll be happy to know that I am actually writing the book. After months of wanting to write, the first chapter is now complete and I expect more to follow in the coming days. I’ll give time estimates for release dates after I get a draft done and decide if I’m going to continue writing book four before editing the previous book. In the meantime, enjoy the fall days ahead, and feel free to read the first two books in the series. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
