This is a story about Maura Moyer as a teen, and why her life turned into the cruel antagonist, in Eyes of Wynter.
After writing Wynter’s Fury, I quickly discovered before I can finish book five of the Storm Bloodline Saga, I needed to write about Madame Moyer’s life story. If I’m to give readers the full quality of enjoyment in the ending of Wynter’s story, then I must write House of Shadow Raven series, first.
This short story: Mirror of Fate with a wordcount of about 8K, has turned into something I didn’t expect. I’ve since expanded it to 30k words. (That’s approximately 100 pages for those wondering how big the story is).
Thinking it was finished at this point, I sent the final manuscript to my editor, only to discover she required more detail. A LOT more detail. The beauty about editors: they have an eye like an eagle for spotting inconsistencies, as well as questions about details, not mentioned in a story.
This is a double edge sword, though, because while I want you, the reader, to experience more enjoyment, I also want to put out a quality book. I had wholly intended on these stories to be novellas, but this mini trilogy has turned into a full-length novel series, instead.
I hope you will come along for this wild ride with me, because I, as the writer, am still wondering how this entire Storm Bloodline Saga will end.
