How do make sure you will never, EVER lose your way?
A map would be nice. Then again, a map can be lost.
What if you put the map on something you could never lose? What would that be? It would be...a skin map.
The Skin Map.
Lawhead is an author I've been talking about since my first involvement with the CSFF tour. He has carved out a strong niche writing fantasy and historical novels alike. He loves the mythic aspect of stories, and he has played with some of the big ones in his King Arthur epic The Pendragon Cycle and his unique take on Robin Hood in The Raven King Trilogy.
But to hear Lawhead in his own words, nothing may compare to what he has in store with the planned five volume Bright Empires series:
'I have not read or written anything quite like it,’ says Lawhead. ‘It’s been forming in my mind for at least fifteen years. Now I am finally writing it, because I think I can finally do justice to such an intricately woven storyline.
BRIGHT EMPIRES is the most challenging work I’ve ever undertaken, and I’m alternately exhilarated and terrified by it.'
I would be challenged too, by a work of time travel and crossing into alternate dimensions involving skin maps, Burley Men, and good coffee.
But more on that later.
Until tomorrow, see what clues you can follow in my fellow travelers below:
