A Day in the Life volume 2 main graphic with the portraits of the 8 characters with stories

Welcome to

A Day in the Life ~ Volume 2

a project inspired by conversation in the BBTV discussion group

 

A year ago today, we published A Day in the Life Volume One, a collection of stories that explored the lives of beloved characters in the world Below. Each story was told from a single character’s point of view and gave insight to their lives, from ordinary, everyday events to special moments they’d cherish forever.

The characters are familiar to everyone who loves BatB, but many were never provided with a detailed backstory, nor were they featured extensively in the episodes. So many questions were left unanswered, and we couldn’t help wondering what we might find if we dug deeper.

Several gifted writers answered the call to join us in imagining answers to these questions. In Volume One, we learned why Jamie developed her skill with a crossbow, how Winslow’s early days in the tunnels helped shape his future, what Samantha wished for more than anything. But there were other voices who called out for their turn in the spotlight, and we knew there was so much more to say.

Today we’re very happy to present A Day in the Life ~ Volume Two, filled with wonderful new stories about the lives of different tunnel characters. Have you ever wondered about Paracelsus’s ambitions beyond the tunnel world, or what happened the day after Lena returned to the tunnels? And exactly who is Erlik?

The writers really have outdone themselves once again! So, come Below and spend a day getting better acquainted with some amazing characters who live not only in “a secret place, far below the city streets” but always in our hearts.

Please know that all feedback will be very much appreciated. If you’d like, you may leave comments at the end of each story, or, if you’d prefer, use the “Message Me” link in the navigation bar. Your comments will be forwarded to the specific author.

There could be a Volume Three publishing for the show’s anniversary in 2022. Please watch for announcements and submission guidelines.

Thank you so much for visiting and for sharing these days with us!

  1. Two years ago when Carole and I were chatting about how much fun it would be to collaborate on a writing project, I never dreamed even one volume of “A Day in the Life” would be the result, let alone two! The realization and success of this project is all thanks to JoAnn’s inspiring comment on BBTV — “wouldn’t it be fun to know what various tunnel folk do during a day”, to the gifted writers who also were intrigued by the idea and contributed wonderful stories, and to all the members of our tunnel family who have read and enjoyed our work.

    It has been a true pleasure and privilege to continue to be part of this project, and I hope we will go on with a Volume 3. There are still more days to share, voices to be heard, stories to be told. And I hope you’ll be there with us.

    As always, all comments and suggestions are welcome.

    Take care and be well,
    Linda SB
