Just finished my first run through the prequel short story–although prequel may not be the right term. It certainly happens before the main story, but by a significant margin, and it doesn’t actually lead directly into what’s happening now. Just an earlier story.
At any rate, it’s provisionally done. Now to edit it and make sure it’s presentable, and then I’ll start putting it up for all to see on this site (so be on the lookout!). It won’t be quite as rigorously polished as a novel, but you should enjoy it nonetheless. I mean, if fantasy’s your thing. If it’s not… well, give it a read anyway. It’s free. What have you got to lose? (Don’t answer that)
