And three random facts for today about A Question of Honor . . .
1.) The official soundtrack for this book is the Pear Harbor soundtrack. David and Gil's relationship was actually inspired by the brother/friend relationship between Rafe and Danny on Pearl Harbor. I would not recommend the movie, but if you've read the book and you'd like to watch some (clean) clips that inspired AQoH . . . shoot me an email. ;) This song was almost like the book's theme, and this version is litrally Gil and David when they were boys. (Well, minus the "Tennessee 1923. xD)
2.) In the first, second, and third draft, none of David's family was mentioned in the story. Well, other than Elaine and his sister Ann, who was briefly mentioned in the letters. When I re-read it after sending it to beta-readers, I relaized David had to have some more background to his story. So his brother, another sister, and his parents all came into being.
3.) In my very first NaNo draft, there was a scene where Joyanna was kidnapped and Erich had to go after her. It was taken out later when some readers pointed out that it really had no place, since it didn't add or play into the story in anyway. Thus, it was taken out, and remains the only actual deleted scene since the first draft. (Though many were heavily revised. xD) I've thought about posting the scene here for y'all to read, but so far I haven't been brave enough to do so. ;)
Here again is the giveaway . . .
