Children of the Enaisi – Coming Very Soon!

Very soon – very, very soon! Most likely by Christmas.

Honest!

πŸ™‚

A life-destroying secret haunts one man, while another breaks his life oath to join murderous outlaws, and an entire people are threatened with upheaval by the rediscovery of ancient technology.

 

“This is an excellent book indeed. The characters are soundly crafted, and I soon found myself pulling for the protagonists and roundly cursing the villains. The society is complex and intriguing; the action scenes are detailed and well described. I look forward to reading the rest of this fine series.”
P.M. Griffin

“Children of the Enaisi has a beautiful high concept with a mysterious past of lost technology and ancient secrets. A fresh new take on Rangers that fans of classic pulp fantasy will love.”
Jon Del Arroz

Happy Easter! He Lives! Aaaand – I’m Rewriting!

On this beautiful Easter Sunday, I am blessed with the knowledge that Y’shua lives, and with a gorgeous, sunny day, windows open, birds singing, a gentle breeze wafting through.

I’m also doing a rewrite of what I had thought was a final draft of Children of the Enaisi because a friend mentioned something in her read-through that made me realize I had forgotten to tie up a plot thread from Sword’s Edge. Part of me wants to pull my hair out, part of me is happy because I am writing.

And thus tumbles pride – in the first scene #amediting #amlaughing

So after a good night’s sleep, and reading some of another author’s work (because that’s how we rest and refill and reset our minds and muse – and it’s C. J. Cherryh, in case you were wondering), I returned to Children of the Enaisi to edit.

And I found a continuity error in the very first scene. A short scene of a mere 323 words. I’d fall out of my chair laughing, but that would hurt this old woman, so I’ll just sit here and chuckle while fixing the silly mess.

Yep, I’m Killing My Darlings

I’m sure you’ve heard the expression “Kill your darlings.”

I’m having to do it. I realized a subplot was taking over and messing things up, so I’m taking it out. Lots of fantastic scenes with good lines and some great background I wanted to add in are now gone.

It hurts, but I know the book will be better without it.

So it goes.

A Bad Judge of Book Length, part three

So, I’m still working on Children of the Enaisi. I’ve had to up the estimate of total word count yet again to 130k, which puts it on par with Sword’s Edge. I do have the feeling it will pass that, but honestly, I am not trying to make this book longer than the first one, but things keep happening!
