Today is very exciting for me. The reason is that Rebecca Sharp has begun the character development of the second book and this bit is personally my favourite part. The story is written and then Bekki begins to bring it to life with rough sketches that begin to shape and explore the characters. I get sketches daily, we talk daily and it really is a lovely process to see the story take on a life of its own. Rebecca is a very talented artist but more than that she sees the end product she has amazing vision and I really feel this will be even better than the first book. I have also sent the text up to the publisher 2QT who will have a look through and any editing gets done at this point.
