One of the barriers of entry of Sand and Blood is the main character's name, Rutejìmo. As much as this hurts my chance of selling the book, there is a reason behind it.

(2017-04-18) Idle Thoughts, Worn Ideas, The Choice, and Sand and Bone 27

I've thought a lot about my master plot, the different threads and stories that weave together into where I'm going. Even thought Sand and Bone is a single point-of-view novel, it is part of a master plot that I hope to see some day. I'm just doing it novel-by-novel instead o scene-by-scene. However, there is a drawback of thinking about stories too much and I'm afraid of burning out the idea before it can be pried out of my skull.
