Author’s Note: Woohoo! Winter Break is here! I’m house and pet-sitting for most of it, but I should be able to sleep in and relax a bit. Hopefully, I’ll get more work done on Spellwrought, which I’m hoping to publish sometime in the first quarter of the year, and am aiming for January, but you know how much trouble this book has given me, so that’s not a definite date.

As for Moonlight, we’re finally nearing the big reveal, where Izeri will have to tell Charias the truth. I’m guessing I have two or three chapters to go before it happens. Wish me luck!

The next chapter will be posted Jan. 5th. Have a Merry Christmas or whatever holiday you celebrate and I’ll see you next year! ^_^  Moonlight Ch. 52

One Step Closer to Spellwrought   8 comments

So, I finally buckled down and finished rewriting the end of Spellwrought. I like this version a lot better than the first, though I’m probably going to tinker with it a bit more before publishing. Still, it’s essentially finished.

Now, I need to write the Bonus Features section of the book. I’m having trouble deciding what short story to write. The ideas I came up with are: A story about Rayne and Belaeden, who are introduced in this book; a story about Kivixl; or another story about Schaff’s backstory.

The problem I have with more Schaff is that if the first two books have stories about him, readers might expect them all to be about him, and I know what I want the story in book 3 to be about, and it’s not Schaff, so I don’t think I’ll be doing him.

I haven’t given Kivixl’s backstory much thought, so it might be interesting to flesh him out some more.

Rayne and Bel would be the easiest because I have already started a story about their past. The whole thing is too long to include in this book, so it would just be a part of the story.

If you have any ideas or opinions on the matter, I would love to hear them. ^_^

Author’s Note: Man, am I exhausted! I had a busy weekend at our annual craft fair, which is why this chapter is so short. Sorry about that. I’ll try to better for next time.  ^_^ See you in two weeks! Moonlight Ch. 51
