Now that the post-publication promotion of Tiberius Found slips into gear, I've time to revisit Oliver Drummond and the Four Horsemen - my 1926-set Young Adult supernatural adventure.
The story was initially written a couple of years ago with an adult as the central character, but was re-written with the protagonist being a fourteen year old boy. This made more sense as the original version didn't really have a sense of focus, as to who the reader would be.
I sent (what I thought was) a finished version to agents a while back and I received notes back with suggestions on how to improve the narrative and story, so I'd be a fool to ignore them. The main change means that a fair chunk needs re-working and impacts throughout the story. I agree with the agent - the changes will make for a stronger novel.
I'm finding that, with the Bank Holidays of late, that I'm able to crack on with it and am pretty happy with how it's going so far.
