Lutheran writer John W. Otte has started a Kickstarter for Drawn in Ash. Here are a few things he had to say about it.
As I got ready for the Kickstarter campaign to publish #DrawninAsh, one of the questions I had to answer was, “Should I share that this story is based on the Biblical book of Esther or not?” Some of my friends worried that this was a major spoiler. Why would anyone want to read this book if they knew how it would all end?Well, here’s the thing: Esther is just the jumping off point. I put the story in that setting and added a lot of science fantasy touches. And really, Esther was just the inspiration, not the outline.So how did the story come together? That’s a long story, one I’m more than happy to share… but not today. Once the campaign has started, I’ll share the twisted road that brought us to today.
