So, we've been getting this question a lot lately, and thought what better place to answer it than on our very own shiny new blog ;) Alright, so here's the question: 'Why did you write The Childe the way you did?' Now our first instinct is to ask, 'well, what exactly do you mean by that?' This question is quite loaded, and there are many different answers that we could give. So we then ask them to narrow it down a bit. Then they clarify. 'You have a very interesting writing style. Why did you have the perspective switch from character to character at times, and why wasn't the story always focused on your main character Cat?' Well, we sit there and ponder this for a minute, and discuss amongst ourselves to really give a good solid answer. The conclusion we came to was simply this. We wrote The Childe this way because we wanted the reader to get a taste of all the things that were going on around our main character, that she wasn't aware of. We also wanted to flesh out our secondary characters, and make them more approachable by letting the reader get inside their heads as well (trying to not keep the reader always at an arms length away). We think one reviewer put it quite well:
"once I got used to this new style of writing, I was hooked! Not only did I really find that you could easily learn about ALL of the characters through this writing style, but it also added a whole new level of mystery to this book!"

This quote says exactly what we were going for with our writing style (we really couldn't have said it any better to be honest). Oh, and to all who have read our first novel, you can be rest assured that all the questions from the first book are indeed answered by the end of the second book :D
