The second book is just a few weeks away from being released and I'm plotting out the story of the next book, Where David Went. In the story, David goes lots of places, including on a trip...without Mother and Pop. When he comes home, however, I'm thinking he may have to face a major disappointment.
It's difficult - as the writer - to imagine making a character that I love almost as much as I love my real brother face a loss of any kind. And yet, conflict and change are what stories are all about. I haven't quite decided what's exactly in store for David and the other characters in the book, but I do know that the characters are going to have to deal with some bigger issues - and bigger losses - than they have before.
