Those of you who enjoyed THE DRAGON IN THE DRAIN will be pleased to know that Book Two is well underway. Woohoo! After trying a few different titles out I’m pretty sure I’ve settled on the right one now and the cover design is looking pretty good too. But I’m not going to give away any more than that for now. There will be title and cover reveals at some point, so keep your eyes peeled for more announcements!
Some of the characters from THE DRAGON IN THE DRAIN will be making a comeback (hurrah!) and some won’t (booo!). At least … maybe they won’t. But more about that in a moment.
We’ll be finding out more about some characters we already know and we’ll be meeting some interesting new ones too … some of whom are already making a nuisance of themselves in the story. As Book Two unfolds you might start wondering which side some characters are really on.
So the story is plotted and the writing is underway, but one of the great things about being a writer is that you also get to be Supreme Being – at least until your characters decide to take you down a peg or two by showing you who’s boss and doing what they like instead of what you wanted them to do. But whatever they think, I do have some control and that means that I can maybe make some little adjustments here and there as to who appears and how much.
So while I’m still writing Book Two, I want to know who your favourite THE DRAGON IN THE DRAGON character is. Whichever character wins this poll WILL appear in Book Two, even if they’re not already in my plot notes and weren’t originally going to be back. They might only get a walk-on part if they weren’t supposed to be popping up at all, but they WILL appear. Of course maybe the winner was already down for a significant role in Book Two anyway. (That’s kind of what I’m secretly hoping, because that will make my life a little bit easier ..!) If you really can’t decide on your favourite character you can vote for more than one. The character with the most overall votes will win.
I haven’t set an end date for the poll because it’ll run until there’s a clear winner or I’ve finished writing the book! Or maybe just until I say so, because I’m Supreme Being. Yeah.
Vote now for your favourite character now to make sure you see them in Book Two! If you’re an adult reading this and your children have read THE DRAGON IN THE DRAIN, don’t forget to get them to vote too. If you’re a child reading this and your adult minions haven’t read THE DRAGON IN THE DRAIN, you really need to start educating them better.
