So, after reading through the book myself during formatting, I realized there were a couple of scenes that were missing. Not missing in the sense that they went AWOL, but missing in the sense that I never wrote them, and I should have. There are about 3 of them, and two of them involve the same character, a certain captain of the guard who just begs for more face time.
So, despite the fact that the files are completely formatted, I am sitting here about to write more in 79 A.D.
Not to worry, the book’s release will not be affected. These scenes will not take long to write. In fact, I will probably finish them tonight, as writing them should not be that difficult. Inserting them into the files will be a real pain in the You-Know-What, though. It will probably change the chapter numbers, which will require all new bookmarks, section breaks, widow and orphan hunts, and…damn. I really wish I’d thought of these during any of the numerous revisions…
Oh, well. I am my own worst enemy. I had thought to release the Kindle and Smashwords versions early, but that is much less likely now. However, I do have the book description. Do you want to read it? Of course you do! so here it is:
Since Londinium, Taras and Theron have gone their separate ways. One now roams the Spanish countryside, feeding on robbers and bandits, while the other hides in a cave on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius, experimenting with his newfound powers. Neither has thought much about the other over the last eighteen years.
But Baella, the ancient renegade, has plans for the pair, and her plans don’t involve letting the two live out their lives in relative peace. Through her treachery, they are reunited in Pompeii, but not even Baella can stop the coming cataclysm.
Powerful forces are rising in the world of the Bachiyr, and Taras and Theron may find themselves caught up in something much bigger than even they can imagine. That is, if either of them survive the mountain’s fiery anger.
Whatcha think? Like it? I do. I might tweak it juuuuuust a bit before the book’s release, but it’ll still be pretty much the same as it is now.
And yes, the release date is still June 29th. There is no turning back now. 79 A.D. is coming, like Jurassic World but without the fanfare and millions of fans.
Okay, I gotta get to writing those scenes. I hope you all have a great day!
