Month: October 2013
So, I finished chapter 14 of The Omphalos of Delphi!
Now, onto chapter 15, but I’ve got to do MORE research. This book will be the death of me from the research alone! Since the beginning, I’ve had to study: Greek & Roman history, the Arctic, breeds of sled dogs, gear, and geography. These are brief examples of my studies; I will spare you the details! But believe me, there’s a much longer description to each one. UGH! Although, I will not deny that we’re coming to the exciting parts. Oh don’t fret, the book is definitely a page-turner, but it gets downright electrifying!!
Currently, I’m writing chapter 14: The Omphalos of Delphi. This book is going to be more exciting than the first –mostly due to not having to introduce the main characters.
The last book left everyone hanging, (I know–I did that on purpose) but rest assuredly it’ll be worth the journey. You will be introduced to a couple nasty characters, and not just from the Diadem.
I must admit that I’m having difficulty with the humor. Even though Oliver maintains his cuteness, he has several death-defying adventures that have no room for “funny”. Overall, I think you’ll be pleased. I will keep you posted each week on my progress.
