TOGETHER is the title of Book 3. It's about a theme that I think is consistent through the book, but not rubbed in the reader's face -- something I hate about all the "message" books out there for young and not so young people. They remind me of homework. "Fun" homework -- the kind that is usually only marginally better than regular homework. Boring.
I want to give you a story, an adventure, new things to learn that are fun and interesting. In stories, people learn, but usually not like the Missouri Mule. In training a Missouri Mule, the old, apocryphal story goes, you start by hitting it over the head with a 2 x 4 -- just to get its attention.
When a writer sets out to tell a story (as opposed to "send a message") the story has events. The characters respond to the events and create more. Through their responses and their trials, tribulations and victories, the characters change and grow. Each character has a dramatic arc, her or his personal story. All of these stories weave together to create a book, to create a community, to create events that together form the big dramatic arc of the underlying story. If there are messages there, it's up to the reader to suss them out.
TOGETHER is a story, and a good one. I hope you enjoy it. PM on FB if you want an Advance Review Copy. You get: a free e-book, soon as they are available. You give: an honest review on Amazon and Goodreads. What a deal!
