2015 Week #11 Update
This week I rewrote chapters 3-5 of Watchbearers book 3, and I’ve rather belatedly realized this story is more serious than my previous couple of novels. I suppose I had expected more of the humor that was in those. While there’s some in here, Sam and Bailey’s points-of-view set the tone, and anyone who has read Millennium Crash knows how intense Sam is. And it turns out Bailey is just as sober on the inside as you’d guess from seeing him from the outside perspective. An occasional wry observation doesn’t change that. So I have to rely on the ridiculousness of some of the suspects to leaven the atmosphere, but don’t expect a lot of laughs.
