At the moment, the main antagonist of the story isn’t going to appear much in the book.
I’m not quite sure how well that’ll work, but its an idea which intrigues me and that is reason enough for me to play around with the idea.
Of course, one of the reasons for doing this is to ensure the life of the main characters and make this a multi-book journey but at the same time I know that if this story works, it needs to work on its own. There can be threads that are left unresolved at the end, but my intention is for those not to detract from the novel itself.
So, a self contained story that could form part of a multi-book narrative, but where the main character’s nemesis doesn’t really appear that much.
Piece of cake.
