I’ve been rereading both of the first two Dragonships novels in preparation for launching into Book III. It may seem like a strange thing that an author needs to read their own book. Of course, Margaret does the primary writing of the text on nearly all of our joint collaborations and changes often take place in a text during the writing process, so perhaps it may not seem so odd. However, I would point out that I am also in the process of reading my last draft of my own upcoming ‘Drakis’ series on which I did the primary writing of the text. As I said, things do change in the writing and when one is working on a series … well, let’s just say it’s important to remember what you have already said in the story.
It may sound self serving and a bit narcissistic but I’ve thoroughly been enjoying myself back in the world of Skylan, Aylaen and the northern barbarians! It is delightful to know how well the words and world still inspire and delight me. The second book, ‘Secrets of the Dragon’ will not be in your hands until later this year but I can tell you that it will be a great ride … and that I’m very excited now to get started on Book III in earnest!
