Size Matters.

IRISH FIREBRANDS: A Novel ~ and Other Works by Christine Plouvier, Indie Author

“When writing a novel an author spends months and years inside a world. You might be in a single character’s head for six months or more. Whether the world is historical or present-day, outer space or next door, it’s the same thing. You’re there, even when you’re here. It’s slow, it’s long, and it’s deeply affecting. The real world blends with the world that exists in your mind and emerges gradually on the page. The reader dives in after, submerging him- or herself in the same deep pool.

“When fiction is working well, the reader gets to experience the created world and the feeling the author had when creating it.”

A great quote by Jacke Wilson in his November ’13 Archive, in which he also quotes Laura Miller’s writing about big books….

Ireland: a great place to dive into.

  1. I might add: even after you finish the book and publish it, you still talk with those characters. They never leave you. Christine, would you agree?
