Just a few words to keep you all in the loop. This morning I finished polishing the eighteenth tale in my anthology. I’m about to start number nineteen – probably tomorrow.
As the tales unfold before me, even though I’m the one writing them, I learn a little more about the five wood goblins who feature in all of the stories. Each one of them reveals a new facet of their very being to me.
There is one very special character who has grown in importance throughout the tales – the one eyed lisping raven with the twisted beak – Bejuss. Somehow that old bird adds more colour to each tale as he gets involved with the goblin brothers. Now that he has become close friends with Glob, the leader of the band of goblins, the brothers depend on him more and more. He brings humour to tricky situations, together with bravery above and beyond the call of duty.
Twelve more tales to go, and then…
Who really knows.
