I am NOT deciding "Character A" will die, but merely state if we are witnessing "Character A" die.
Writing for a public audience is now in ways perhaps more "intimidating" than ever - because anyone in the world can be reading it within seconds.
An Amazon search for the author quickly turned up the book. In more detail, I saw it is set starting in "1786" and features a well-to-do family in rural England. Immediately I thought I had to check this out.
Life is invariably about irresistable change. It is one thing to write people over the course of, say, only three years - essentially, a "snapshot" - in their 20s. It is decidedly something else to write and follow people over decades.

Don't think we did not joke about this back then ourselves: Living as I did then in a New York City suburb, I recall my "friends" and I even then laughing about the absurd size of the characters' Manhattan apartments...
On that note also, I am shocked. This was almost a serious and professional interview...

I know I am not a sci-fi writer...
I threw together that draft map of some locations that will be in the coming book thinking a version of the map may appear in that book - the first time I will have published such an "aid."
