First off, I want to give a big shoutout and express my deep gratitude to everyone who took part in the Kickstarter campaign and helped us reach the target goal. You are all awesome! Last I heard the book (and other perks you earned through the campaign) should be in your hands early/mid-Decemeber. Happy early-Christmas!
As a way to say thank you, I thought I’d share some files I recently stumbled across. After signing the contract for Lost City Chronicles I begun working with a fantastic editor named Anna. During our initial meeting she urged me to restructure the opening portion of Book Keeper to get the plot moving faster. To do so several sections were rearranged and several chapters were chopped entirely. In hindsight she was absolutely right (as she made a habit of being over the next 3 years). Anyways, while organizing the files on my computer I found some of the chopped chapters! Keep in mind, they were written nearly 5 years ago, were never edited, and there is a reason they are “lost chapters” and not included in the final manuscript! At the time I envisioned more back-and-forth from Upper-Earth to Under-Earth and that Cody’s classmates would appear more frequently. However, the story ended up going in a different (and I think better) direction. That being said, enjoy the unreleased Cody/Jade material to tide you over until Earthly Trinity. 🙂
