When I wrote Letters to Leonardo, I found that the manuscript was like a canvas that I kept adding layers to.
What started out as a 1200 word story became a 10,000 word sensation – but not without a lot of hard work.
The Black Baron is a fun, fast-paced story full of great humour with lots of appeal for young readers, and Robyn is going to tell us all about how she wrote it.
Join me at Robyn’s blog http://robynopie.blogspot.com today. I’m sure you’ll find her story fascinating.
When I get home, I’ll be posting a special tip from Robyn back here at my blog.
Hope you are enjoying the blog tour. Just in case you’ve missed any of it, here’s where we’ve been/are going:
