I have received a few emails about Dunin and thought I should clear the air. Dunin will not be resurfacing in ToS. He was admitted to the academy and will be there for four years, ToS will not span that much time, and things are not nearly as bad as they will be when Dunin becomes a Merchant Marine. Chapter 13 was part tease for his story and part response to Rannath and Malak's conversation at the end of chapter 12. There are currently three stories bouncing around trying to get out and I am not even done with ToS yet. Dunin and Kalaban's story (unnamed as of this blog entry), The "Runeswords", and one as a response to several faithful fans that want Aaron to go to Tarra, called "Prince of the Rose". Honestly, I am unsure which will be next, but PotR, seems to be the odds on favorite.
On a personal note, I have to say I am enjoying writing and never knew I had the knack.
