Just a brief update. You recall that I have just put my novels out on You Heart Books? There is a link to my vendor page on the Home Page of this site, but I discovered today that the link did not work. Apologies for that. This has now been fixed. For the record, the link is: http://youheartbooks.com/author/?vendor=david-waine
'Larussi's Heartsong' continues to gather momentum. It now tips the scales at just over 25,000 words, which means that it is roughly one quarter done. I am pleased with it as well. Gone is that feeling of, 'This needs redoing,' when it consisted of just one sentence. It c Progress will be a bit slower over the next few weeks, however, because it is the exam marking season and that will restrict my writing time for a while. All that is due to finish by early July, then it will be full steam ahead on the new book. Hopefully, everything will be wrapped up during September.
Although 'Larussi's Heartsong' follows on from my 'Queen's Heart' trilogy, it is not part of it. It is a stand-alone story involving some of the surviving characters from the trilogy. This is why it is to be classified as the Appendix to A Queen's Heart when finished. I had the idea for it while writing the trilogy's final part, 'The Power of Four Queens'. At the time, I envisaged a novella with a rather different tone from the six previous 'Avalind' books. As is always the case, what you envisage at the outset is never what you end up with. As things stand, it looks like 'Heartsong' will be a full length novel, but the tone will be new. Don't worry, fantasy fans. There will still be plenty of excitement.
