Beginnings are easy. That's why a lot more novels are started than completed. This post on my author blog discusses the challenges of story middles, whether it's the middle part of a novel or the second book of a trilogy.
It also takes a peek at Honor Bound, the second book of the Thorn trilogy in the Tales of Sevrin series.
Readers who enjoyed Arilyn's story in the Songs & Swords series, and Liriel's mischief and mayhem in the Starlight & Shadows trilogy will probably feel right at home in Sevrin.
Hope to see you there!
