I just wanted to say I recently picked up Black Wolves, and am loving every bit of it!
I also had a question. I remember in times gone by on this blog that you had said Crossroads had grown from a prologue as there was just too much to convey, and so you had planned your initial story to be a follow up. Is this the initial story? Or is this the in between novel you had proposed?
This is that initial story, yes.
The in between novel I proposed is, um, basically Part One & the events that would come immediately after it if I didn’t skip over them with the time jump. There is also a short story in my collection that was once part of the in between novel (and which takes place before the opening of Black Wolves)
