Joseph Chetwood is writing much of Uprising Crusader online. The story is serialized on the blog but it feels like you’re reading a working draft. I’m assuming that there will be an edit round when he’s done but the story itself is intriguing. The gunsmith angle brings a nice dose of realism.
More intriguing is that in every installment he has a single image that is representative of that section. I have no idea if this will make it into the final draft. As a reader, I almost hope it doesn’t. The images distract from my imagination. BUT AS A WRITER, IT WORKS. I tend to a be visual person and I love the idea of using an image of what I’m trying to convey in a particular section to help move my writing forward. I’m tempted to try that with the fiction piece I’m working on.
