The Book Within

Remember that Seinfeld episode when Cramer publishes a coffee table book about coffee tables that also becomes its own coffee table?

Well, that is kind of what The Rule of Thirds, my newest novel in the Things Come in Threes series is like. Throughout the novel, two teenaged girls assist a little girl in the making of a book. Following along through the pages, the reader is able to experience the creative process and the inspiration behind their work. In the end, the little book that they make ends up being more than the characters could have expected. Not only does the book help a little girl learn how to accept her grief, it also becomes worthy of fictional publication.

Maybe fiction does imitate life. In this case, it is the other way around. Since the little book that the characters create lies within the novel, it also needed to spread its wings and attain a life of its own. Entitled Happy Again, this book has two homes. One within the book, one outside the book and living on its own.
