This week, Elizabeth shows off the proof copy of Fremont, and discusses how important maps were to her while she wrote the book. Illustrator Emily Chappell created some fantastic maps that perfectly embody Elizabeth’s ideas, but she drew her own map sketches as she wrote. If you missed the vlog for Episodes 1 to 3, watch it here.
Buy Episode 4 here. We charge once for the serial, when you buy it. Then we update the serial every week, adding a new episode to the ebook. You refresh your download once it is released, and you get the new episode without being asked to enter payment details again. If you buy the serial a bit late, you get the latest version, not just one episode at once.
How it works
Our vlogs don’t give away what happens in each episode, but if you scroll down to the bottom of this post, there are discussion questions and a comments forum for you to have your say on the story so far. I recommend reading the download before you scroll down to avoid any spoilers. There will be a new discussion post each week to go with the new download, so if you’re only on the first episode then you might want to avoid the posts about the next episodes until you’ve caught up. You can always add your own questions and impressions, but we’ve suggested some to get the party started.
Book group chatter
Has Fremont influenced the way you think about maps? What personal interpretations do you put on maps? Do they help you orient yourself?
