I have been going back through the stories and cleaning them up for www. Finestories.com. While doing so it occurs to me that the short story Runeswords should actually be incorporated into one of the three. I also realized that I left a lot hanging at the end of Prince of the Rose. I have also received several emails encouraging me to publish. So here is what I'm thinking:
If one of you faithful readers and blog watchers could recommend the best place to insert the Runeswords I would be greatful because I am at a loss. I think it needs to be in either the prologue or epilogue of one of the stories, what do you think.
I have also decided that the trilogy format was wrong, this should be a saga, so I'm thinking of renaming ToS to something like Shadow of the Rose and renaming the whole thing the Rose Saga. The fourth book, which I am working on will be called, The Name of the Rose, or A Rose by any other Name. I have the basic outline for a fifth book called the Thorn of the Rose, which would chronologically be before the Thief of Roses, which I am thinking to rename, The Thief of the Rose.
So, what do you think?
Drop me an email.
p.s. I guess you figured out that I have been writing. :)
I hope to have the fourth book ready for editing by the end of summer.
