duskpeterson: An apprentice builds a boat as a man looks on. (Default)
Cover for Law Links

Few events are more thrilling in a Koretian boy's life than a blood feud between two villages. Or so Adrian thought.

Torn between affection toward his traditional-minded father and worship of his peace-loving, heretical priest, Adrian finds himself caught between two incompatible visions of his duty to the gods. Then the Jackal God sends Adrian a message that will disrupt his life and send him fleeing from a danger he knows too well.

"You asked whether you could do anything for me; now comes the moment when I must take up your offer."

I felt a deep stillness enter into me then, one I hadn't felt for many weeks – one I hadn't felt since the last time Fenton and I spoke. I understood.

He has said words harsher than mine against the law, so I do not know whether he will consider what I did to be wrong. I am very confused.

Feedback this weekend gave me the impression that my current serializations are made up of too many installments for some of my readers. So, with "Law Links," I'm switching back to the practice of serializing novels by part, rather than by chapter. I've posted the remainder of Part One (that is, Chapters 3-6) and will post Part Two next week.

Also, the question has come up as to whether I serialize unfinished works. No. :) With the exception of "Edgeplay in Mayhill" (which was a special case), all stories I serialize are finished. Sometimes my novels are made up of stories that can each be read independently, in which case I may post each story within the novel before the full novel is finished. But I don't start serializing a story until that particular story is finished.

Sometimes I feel that he is as mysterious as the gods, and that he is hiding something of vital importance from me. Something that would transform my life.
