Writing ambiance


My new book, working title Burnt letters, takes the protagonist Nicholas Fors, to countries such as Norway, Switzerland, India, Italy and Brazil. It´s both challenging and fun trying to capture the characteristics of each scenery. Which ”markers” will really bring the ambiance, with its unique smells, sounds, lights and inhabitants, into the reader’s bedroom? With a limited amount of words available (number of pages is always a struggle with the publishers), you have to find the small things that makes the places come alive.
