I am headed up to Surrey this year for the conference and have an appointment with Jack to have a look at "Kaeso". Since the US release of the Forest Laird is still some time off, give me a chance to pick up the book there and then I'll get back to you. Surely Jack has given us something somewhat controversial to mull over, eh? It might not be the discovery of stirrups but then again there's bound to be something good!
I think there are a few tidbits we could elaborate on Chief Scott.
I'm about 200 pages into THE FOREST LAIRD now, and have been quite enjoying it, but find myself side-tracked by the copy of KAESO that Chief Scott hand delivered to me at the conference. I wasn't going to read it until after I'd finished Jack's book - I really wasn't - but I read the first page yesterday, and couldn't help myself.
I'm now three chapters into it, and really enjoying it. Sure hope someone is smart enough to publish it.
A terrific conference and the perfect opportunity to see Jack in action again.
He was the moderator for a panel of agents in a program which featured the writing of audience members. Jack would read them and when two of the four agents on the panel raised their hands it meant that he should stop, that they had had enough. They would then elaborate on why they would have stopped reading at that point. It was a very informative look into how agents read a piece.
At one point, Jack was reading a dialog-heavy submission that was an imagined conversation between God and another character. One of the agents didn't care much for the writing but said that it did reinforce her image of the voice of God sounding a lot like Jack Whyte.
Thom, you know I picked up a copy of "The Forest Laird" while I was there, and I'll be starting it tomorrow. I need a good night's sleep in my own bed first.
Chief, if you can send me a copy of Kaeso. I would really like to read it.
Do you still have my email address? Contact me off-forum.
I sent you an e-mail at the address in my contact list, hopefully it's the correct one.
...for the vote of confidence, Cathy!
