We have approximately ten thousand words down so far and neither of us is sure how big this story is going to be. Trouble is, if we get an idea then one of us will take it, develop it and give it back and that just spirals. We agreed at the start of our collaboration that one of us needed to retain overall editorial control; and that would be me on this project.
Someone commented that the man in the picture was too beautiful to be a serial killer. I suspect this story, like it's cover, is going to challenge some conventional thinking.
We're debating if and how to share the prologue before the novel is published; I'm all for bunging the snippet on our websites. Chambers is erring on the side of caution; simply because, we've already changed one major thing which occurred in the first chapter; and will probably change other things too. I guess this means you may have to be patient (I know; it sucks).
I hope you're enjoying the Easter weekend even if you are having to paint the fence or host a BBQ for a lot of people you don't really know or like.
