That’s how my next novel starts. The title is “The Kaitian War” (working title for now but very likely that’s the final title) and it continues directly after Truths, Half-Truths and Lies. Can you guess what’s the main theme of the novel?
I’ve had the story structure (see this post how the story structure fits to my writing) ready for several weeks and I’ve added notes to it about the plot, scenes, characters, etc. The only thing that remains is to actually write the novel and see what happens… I’ve already encountered couple of surprises, such as a visit to a cemetery by three characters from Truths, Half-Truths and Lies who went there see the grave of the fourth character from the same novel.
