That’s the title.
A “scend” is the surge created by a wave, which is doubly fun because this novel is set in a landlocked country. *laughs in maniacal confused*
As you might already know, my current project is to take my first two Light-Walker novels, Rethana’s Surrender and Rethana’s Trial, and squoosh them back together as the one book as which they began life.
And then some! Because this omnibus (ya’ll! I’m making an omnibus!) will also contain the short story “Rethana’s Tower,” at least 3 maps, Rethana’s family tree, a glossary, and an entire song translated from English into Lirren Eamnaya, the language I made up. An index! Appendices that are not bodily organs!
Why yes, this entire project is my gratuitous self-indulgence, and I couldn’t be more pleased, because I deserve it, thank you.
If I have time, I will redraw two of the maps (the originals are 20 years old) and draw a fourth one. But that’s only if I absolutely have time to do those AND upload to Amazon in time to publish before 00:01am on January 1st.
Also, ftr, I have no mapmaking skills beyond what I’ve taught myself. So dang.
Anyway, other than possible alterations to map content, I’ve finished the book’s interior. YAY. ME.
Next and forsooth, I have cover art to paint. Canvas acquisition shall take place this afternoon, and painting shall commence tonight.
Of Scends and Triads (Light-Walker Omnibus, Vol. 1) will hopefully come out no later than December 31, 2022.
