|Selystra's Daughters is a novel I have
previously worked on, although, currently I've set it aside in favour of
my other fantasy series and
a short science fiction series. It may, in fact, turn out to be three novels.
The book is broken into three parts, Part I: Zandrian; Part II: Saya; and Part III: Selystra's Daughters. Whether this story remains as a single novel or morphs into a trilogy will depend mostly on the length of the three parts. If they are all long enough, it will get broken up. If not, then it will just be a single long book.
I recently tried working on this book after completing three other books in a different story vein. You can read about those two books here:
I was having a hard time getting into it, though. I think I need to make some changes in the characters. It's basically a stand alone, although I do have some inkling of a possible sequel.
The other thing about this book is that someone has offered to serve as a literary agent to shop this book around if I ever finish it. I self-published the first three books, but this person is willing to try to find me money for this one. That's all very well and good, but it will likely delay the release of the book. I guess I have to have more patience than I normally show on that score.
I will try to post updates here as the writing progresses, and perhaps put up a sample chapter. Currently, I'm still working on Chapter 2, so there isn't much to say right at this moment.
