I'm going to update my process report for book 2. I think I'm at about 40% with the outline. Yesterday I hit a bit of sticking point that required me to do some world-building, backstory development. If I do it right, most of that work won't show up in the books to bore you. It's kind of like drawing a person. You need to understand how the skeleton goes together, but in the final drawing you don't see the skeleton.

One of the characters in my book, Wa, is practitioner of the insane sport of parkour, or free running. Here's a taste (sorry about the ad at the beginning). Please do not try these stunts at home or anywhere else.
If you're looking for my songwriter stuff, I've moved it. At the top of this page are some tabs, one of them says "Eric's Songs." That will take you to my posterous site where you can listen to all my tunes!
I'm kind of shocked by this, but one of that characters from my book, Undermountain, is now on twitter. The profile pic he's using cracks me up because Grizz is an eight foot tall "bigfoot," not a cute, fuzzy little bear cub.
UPDATE: Spree is now over. I bought a total of ZERO books.
I was interviewed over on Larissa Hinton's blog: A Three Way Tie: Author Interview: Eric Edstrom: Please check it out! And check out her books while you're at it.
My first novel, Undermountain, started as a bit of a panster novel. That is, I wrote it by the seat of my pants. I had a general idea of where I was headed, but not exactly where I was going. World building? I had volumes of that. Story? Well, not so much.
