It's been a long and winding road, much longer and with more turns than I thought it would be. During the process some things changed from my first vision of the story while the main story line remained true to its original concept. The most interesting change - and one that happened of its own accord as I wrote it - was a change of the leading role from one of my main characters to the other. I didn't even realize it was happening, it was so natural. The first person speaker and narrator in the story is Dan, because the story begins with him. But after Dan meets Laure, things begin to transition until by the end, the story is more centered around Laure. Dan is still the first person speaker and narrator and both of the characters grow from youthful naivety to adults and I think that readers who mostly enjoy the action will also appreciate the changes in the main players.
The decision has been made (by myself and by agreement of Laure and Dan) that in the sequel, Road Trip Blues Laure will be the first person speaker.
