Interview with L.R. Lane

How did you decide upon the title All in a Day's Dance for your book and can you briefly describe the process it took to go from its beginning to what it is today?
My wife who is a classical dancer suggested the title and it felt right to me so we applied it and kept working with it, but I think it is important to know that the story exists mainly because someone told us that our stage performance needed a context - that's when I wrote the simple version of the story.

I made it into a book when I recognized that it was no longer feasible for us to apply ourselves to live theater and rather than just letting it slide I kept developing the subject in correlation to my music The TW Suite.

The subject has always been creativity and considering how (for us) it relates to the making of music for a dance performance it was appropriate to make the sound of the repertoire described in the story tangible and available in the easiest possible way to the public online through www.allinadaysdance.com and the distributors linked to it.

The All in a Day's Dance story evolved kind of like it was a fairy tale which I think helped to keep it from becoming opinionated, but it was never meant to be directed at children so many discussions about the validity, or at least significance of the characters in it arose even after the book was written and published.

The illusory artistic director in the book is a new kind of oddball and I really hope that his quotient of entertainment is high when readers come to know his relationship with the main character Truchsia - trying to know exactly what he is.
Would it be accurate to say that he is a nefarious artistic director?
As far as he is concerned he is too sophisticated for unlawful conduct and he is indifferent to anyone who is not ethical.

In addition he stays away from typical psychological definitions and dramatic descriptions - all part of a special design that he takes full advantage of to remain a mystery.

My aim was to heighten public interest in the story by embedding the rationale for the artistic director in a chapter and giving readers the option to hear the sound of each life changing event faced by the protagonist.

All of the means for that are easily available on the internet and I am confident that it is an entirely new experience for anyone.
Is there a simple way to sum your concept up?
Yes.

It is a topic with three basic elements - experience, emotion and one very persistent variable - adding up to become music in the world of an unusually creative hero.
