Welcome to my very first serial! This was a fun story for me to write, as it takes place between manuscripts in the world I write with my co-author, Fabian Gonzalez. It’s a world I adore with characters I love, but alas! There are no dragons. I apologize. Those come later, I promise.
I needed to know how Catori, the main character, copes with her new life and how she overcomes her fears and self-doubt. Because it lines up so beautifully with the holidays, I decided to share it, too. Think of it as a post-Cinderella story, if Cinderella took up swordplay and left home to fight in wars and ride dragons.
Spoiler alert: This entire story is a spoiler. There will be hints at other people and events that take place in the first two manuscripts. Normally I’d try to explore these past events within the story itself to show you instead of tell you, but in this circumstance it’s better if I merely take questions. So, feel free to post any questions in the comments below and I’ll be happy to answer them!
The first chapter of Silk & Swords will release on November 20th. Updates will take place each subsequent Monday.
