Pop-Up Books and Unfolding Plots
I have a collection of pop-up books. I have always loved them.
Beautifully crafted, simply themed, surprises unfolding on every page. Some are spectacular and far too fragile for children to play with.
I have just unfolded a chapter of my new story today:
The Ties That Bind: and found a beautiful secret hidden inside.
It explains a lot about the motivation behind the behaviour and attitudes of some of my characters in this small Spanish village in 1935.
I have written almost half of the first draft of The Ties That Bind this month, and I plan to publish it by Easter 2015
