Muliti-talented artist, Tama Leia’s manuscript arrived early this morning. We are some of the chosen few to give feedback on the prologue and the first chapters. Leia has been getting lots of analysis from editors, other writers, family and friends to help shape her novel in the right direction.
The chapters we read are quite lovely – a beautiful modern love story with larger-than-life characters.
Leia tells us she has been enthralled by creating the artwork for her stories. “As technology is advancing,I am learning ways to collaborate on pieces that I would have very little influence over before. I used to spend hours going back and forth with my artists trying to help them create what I envisioned. Now with the advancements of technology I can collaborate in ways that were not possible before. Now the visuals are always going in the right direction. And I always end up with what I want.”
