I think I end up making one for every book I work on, just to keep everything straight, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the new book now has a map. What’s new and fun about this one is that I found a sweet fold-out map of Dubuque, where the novel is set, while we were back in Iowa last month, so I spent some time today adding some of Drew’s balloon stickers to the important locations for the book.
Of course I had to take a picture with my cell phone, but after three attempts, this is the best I could get. You sorta get the idea… (The As are for Archie, the Ks are for Kelley.)
And yes, I did tape it to the wall to take the picture, thanks for asking. It’s a wild and crazy Friday night here at the Jasper compound!
Okay, now back to revising the book upon which the map is based (we’re finishing up chapter 6 tonight or else).
