I’m just putting the finishing touches to The Wolves of Winter Part Two. The final three scenes should be in the bag by the end of this week and then its just a mattter of typing up the story and editing. All things being equal, this next installment of the adventures of Rulnik, Yanuk and Torbad should be with you in good time for Easter.
I mentioned inspirations last week, and the music of Ronnie James Dio is certainly one of them. I’m glad to read that the former Rainbow and Sabbath frontman is responding well to his cancer treatment – I’m hoping to catch him and his current band, Heaven & Hell later this year.
Lots of scenes and moods from the Song of the Elves saga have been evoked by music. A close friend commented that the cover to A Shadow Falls resembles an 80s goth album cover and I agree it wouldn’t look amiss as a Sisters of Mercy album cover. I suppose its inevitable that inspirations seep into your work, and i’ve found the process of writing a book very much like an exploration of ones own past – not that I was an elf in a former life or anything.
So, Feb hols are here and I’m looking forward to getting lots of writing done on WOW and SOTE Part 2.
Until next time, up the elves!
