Vignettes of a MasterBy: Jason Luke
What the hell is a vignette?
It’s a strange word – one most people are unfamiliar with. A dictionary definition describes the word as… ‘a brief evocative description, account, or episode.’
So, although the word is kind of weird, it’s actually a pretty accurate one, because what you are about to read is a collection of short scenes that I wrote live during a World Facebook Tour conducted over recent months.
For several weeks I appeared on Facebook pages from around the globe and wrote live scenes based on the suggestions of readers.
It was a fun, and grueling challenge. Hundreds and hundreds of readers posted brilliant suggestions, asking me to write scenes that used characters from my book, ‘Interview with a Master’.
Most of the scenes involve Jonah and Leticia, but the other characters in the book also make an appearance… and in several of the scenes I actually appear, interacting with the fictional characters I created!
At the end of the book are 30 brand new scenes that I wrote after the Tour. These are scenes that no one has read before now.
And finally, I have included the first dramatic chapter of the sequel to ‘Interview with a Master’. The book is entitled ‘In Love with a Master’. I hope to have the sequel finished and ready for publication within the next couple of months.
I need to extend my sincere thanks to every single Facebook page that hosted me during the World Tour. Without their generous support, I would never have had a platform to create these paragraphs and introduce my characters to so many new readers.
I hope you enjoy these paragraphs for what they are – snap-shot scenes written live as the ideas were presented to me. These paragraphs were not written as excerpts from the upcoming sequel. They are stand-alone scenes that have a life of their own, and are not part of any future book.
Jason Luke, May 2014.

Jason Luke's World Tour was unlike any other Facebook experience I have ever had with an author. The amount of thought and the creative process that was involved in this one hour was absolutely mind-blowing! What a fantastic gift to the readers and what a wonderful way to create new fans of ‘Interview with a Master’. Bravo, Jason!
The ‘Interview with a Master’ Live World Tour was the fastest hour I have ever experienced. The honor of getting to watch Jason Luke create amazing, heartfelt and beautiful paragraphs in 5-10 minutes was truly a moment I won't soon forget. I can't wait to see what he does next!
