This week’s Snippet Sunday is rather short, since I really wanted to share with you a piece of writing that I’ve cut from The Heart of the Baenor. I really like this piece, but pieces of the plot have changed too dramatically for it to work anymore as-is, and I was only able to piece a tiny bit of it back into the current draft. Enjoy. :) Continue reading “Snippet Sunday: The Heart of the Baenor”
Overall this book was okay. It wasn’t great, it wasn’t terrible. As I was talking over it with my best friend in the car on the way home I figured out it’s because the bones are good but the main character isn’t really as fleshed out as she could be. So let’s start with characters, shall we?

This book doesn’t have a title I like at all, so I’m not using a title in this post. “DotH” is short for Daughters of the Hylands. The Daughters of the Hylands is an eight-book subseries of my Hylands series (The Half-Elves, etc.) and this is book… three. At least for now. I might end up reordering them whenever I get around to actually writing them. But anyway, this story is the least solidified story of the series in my head, so this should be interesting. XD Enjoy.
