The collaborative novel I am working on is taking shape, and I really like the concept.  The eight of us will be contributing 5 chapters each, and will have our own main characters and story arc.  The connecting character will be a mysterious guy called “The Tourist” who travels in a time machine and visits each of our eras and locations in turn.  He ends up dead at the end, and the reader will have to figure out which of the eight main characters killed him! Kind of like Agatha Christie with a sci-fi/steampunk slant.  My character is Lady Felicity Dimond and she has a manservant, Mostyn.  She works for NMI (Newsmakers, Inc.) a business that “manufactures” news to feed the heavy diet of information that people want and need.  That’s all I’ve got so far, but I think it is a promising beginning.
