This story goes back and back.
It’s been around seven years since the first Green Ember book was first shared with the world, but the story—in its first iteration—was shared in my little world for many years before that. (Well before this innocuous FB post and it’s sweet little typo twelve years ago. The image of Sam Gamgee beneath was created years later.)
It started on a porch in West Virginia with a daddy and a daughter. It eventually was written down and shared with more people many years later. Happy days! Then it grew to nine books—the ninth book will be one year old in a couple of days. Archer’s Cup anyone?
So what about the tenth book? You may be happy to hear that I just wrote “The End” a few days ago on that manuscript. The story goes on….
