What the Heck am I Doing?

Hi everyone! I just figured a quick update was in order.

On Wednesday I just finished reading another manuscript. This one was called the Sword and the Rose. It may be a stand alone novel. But it’s definitely another fantasy novel. I know that most people don’t use Twitch but I will be editing the video and uploading it to YouTube and it will come out after I finish up the Talisman of the Winds video series.

Speaking of Talisman of the Winds, I’m going to be going over the next rounds of edits beginning next week, and then I’ll be releasing it to Beta Readers. I know that some of you have already expressed an interest and I will be getting the manuscript to you as soon as I finish these edits. If you haven’t already reached out to me just let me know and I’ll arrange to get you a copy.

But wait, there’s more! While I was digging around, I found what I believe is the sequel to Talisman of the Winds, at the very least the stories are connected. Then I found another story (although I think it is a short story) that may or may not be connected, which I will likely be reading next so that I can learn more about it. I’ll end up reading both of them, but the first one will be the short story and the second one will be the connected story. Nope I’m not telling you the titles, you’ll find out in a week and a half when I start reading them. 🙂

    Yeah, I think JPW did the equivalent of graphic doodles. I guess they could be called literal doodles maybe?
    He did many versions of things without actually discarding the originals. I did in fact scavenge many MS’s that he called “junk, throw it out.” That includes the infamous trilogy about the Guardian of the Sword, or Asbalnian Tales or Chronicles of Avantir–what would you call that trilogy?

      Those are valuable because that way I can see what direction he wanted to go by what he was discarding. As long as I know these were rejects.

        I think that some of his so-called rejects were more valuable than later work. I suspect that, towards the end of his life, some of his writing was not as good as some of his peak writing. Just my opinion.

          That makes sense. I think he still had some good ideas, so I’ll work on creating what I can from the ideas themselves.

To speak of Ardan the Grim is to speak of many things. One must tell of how he was the last in a line of men who had stood for far Tharid. A line descended from Ardan the Fair, who left Asbaln that there should be no quarrels with his brother, Randell of Avantir. Both of them being sons of the famous Guardian of the Sword of Avantir, Rorick. Wyrta the seer spoke to him in these words: "In the twentieth year, on spring's first day, seek a path to the West away. Go to the land of the Silver Hair, for thy fate does await thee there." Years after Rorick and Conel rode forth to free the land of Asbaln from the barbaric tribes, comes one man who will ride forth to save the kingdom and he will wear... The Crystal Crown.
