Remember that I promised I would post some ‘lost’ scenes from the Faerie Path books? Well, the first one is now there, just in time for Christmas.
It is the whole of Chapter Seven (VII) from the original, unedited version of The immortal Realm.
Let me explain. When I submit a manuscript to a publisher, they set about editing it - suggesting changes that they believe will improve the book. Sometimes I disagree with their choices and say so - but more often, I go along with what they want.
If you know the published book well, then you will probably notice small differences throughout this original text.
But something else happened with this chapter - and it was caused by the fact that I had written beyond the agreed word-count. This meant that something had to be removed. The entire last scene of this chapter was taken out - not because it didn’t work - but because the book needed to be shorter.
Now, for the first time, you can read what I originally wrote.
To find the lost chapter, go to the BOOKS page, click on The Faerie Path, then click on The Immortal Realm. At the bottom of the page you will see some text: Click here to read the original, unedited version of The Immortal Realm Chapter VII.
Click on this and it will take you to the lost chapter.
