Other things first:
I’m two-thirds of the way through this round of revisions on THE VOICE OF PROPHECY.
And I’m starting to form plans for the launch. Actually, there’ll sort of be two launches–one for the pre-order and one for when it goes live. The pre-order price is going to be a good deal (probably $0.99 pre-order only). And I’ll likely plan a few other things around those same times, so stay tuned.
There’s quite a lot of backstory that’s never explicitly addressed in the DUAL MAGICS series, because it’s not needed there. But I know it. And it has the potential for a good story–or three (maybe four). So, there’s a pretty good chance that there might be a prequel series at some point when this series is complete that will explain things like:
- Why are the Valson and the Fasallon so similar when they live on opposite sides of this world?
- How did the Fasallon come to be the ruling class all along the coast (and up a couple of rivers)?
- Why do the Dardani have such a strong distrust of magic?
- Why do the Modgud, who are in all other ways like the Dardani (and for a reason), live in isolation on their plateau, barely interacting even with the Dardani?
In other words, what happened in the history of this world to cause all these things? Hint, it all started with one decision.
I don’t know at this point whether the prequels would be novels or shorter–novellas maybe. I’m not going to do anything more about them until this series is complete. But the possibility is out there.
