Book 3: The Traveling Man
I always knew the third book would be the hardest to write.
I had to search for a perfect beginning. The book had to open with a
pop. I had already dealt with exposition: the reader knew these
characters. That was the sweetest thing about working in a trilogy:
at this point in the quest, the characters had been fleshed out
enough to ignore the expositional detail a writer finds extremely
tedious but canít ignore for the sake of the actual story. Here I
could get the ball rolling!
