I was recently asked to share something about my newest book, The Eightfold Lairs of Xillenthia, with a private group, and I'd like to share my response.
Thank you! The road between writing and publishing is a long and difficult one, but the end is worth it. This book is one of my favorite works, and the first draft came from pure inspiration. The Eightfold Lairs of Xillenthia is darker and edgier than Tale of the Moone, and I was purposely vague on the worldbuilding to maintain the aura of mystery and discovery about the world. One of the main characters, Azola is one of my favorite characters that I've written. She's not only a physically strong and capable warrior, but lives her life on her own terms, and absolutely does not care what others think of her.
