I was getting ready to write a life of King Ozias, who lived 2,000 years ago in Obann’s time, the last anointed king of Obann until his descendant, King Ryons–yes, getting myself pumped for a whole new cast of people and places–
When my editor, Susan, said, “But what happens next? After all that business with the Witch Box! I want to know what happens next!”
Well… now that you mention it, so would I.
So what do I write? King Ozias, or the next episode in Obann’s current history?
King Solomon tells us, “[I]n a multitude of counselors, there is safety.” So I’m open to advice from wherever I can get it–readers, editorial staff, family members, friends: anybody.
I’m also told that The Witch Box is probably not a suitable title for a book published by Chalcedon’s ministry. They know the readership better than I do, so I’d better change the title. To what, I don’t know: not yet I don’t. May the Lord provide–as He always has. (Does anybody like Ocean of Time? It’s relevant.)
Decisions, decisions! As my old chess buddy, Sam, used to say, “What to do, what to do?” But it’s part of the job, so I’ll have to find an answer.
