So my job for the last week has been to take pictures of places where Leviathan is set. Namely, towns in the old Austria-Hungarian Empire and glacial landscapes in the Alps.
Between this photo-taking and pitching my books at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, there hasn’t been much time to blog. Or even to think of what to blog. But here’s something to gnaw on. Here are my research photos for the illustrator of Leviathan (who shall remain nameless until the official announcement, which is soon).
I post them here for all to see, and to imagine what stories shall occur in these places.
Also, I would like to thank skiers everywhere for providing an economic incentive for the creation of low-level fly-overs of the Alps in relative safety. What did authors do before ski-lifts? Walk everywhere?
