At long last, I have completed the first draft to Follow the Light, the sequel to my fantasy novel How Black is the Shadow. Now comes the hardest part: editing upon editing upon editing. For those of you who have been waiting, rest assured, I will have finished all my drafts within the coming months.

To catch your interest, I’ll include the first paragraph of Follow the Light. Let me know what you think. By the way, the paragraph includes spoilers for How Black is the Shadow.
“The ruins of Maywood approached as a scattered band of shadows, half-sunk in the sick, grey fields. I squinted past the strewn rubble and shattered statues.

Somewhere inside, Kolby took refuge, clutching a plain, black ring plucked from the corpse of his father.”
