A rare look at “Ghosts of the Past” in its first draft


Final heraldry design for Lord Knight Elendir of house Ten-Ar


Every book starts out different than its final, published form.  Writing, re-writing, and editing is a a normal part of the process.

So imagine my surprise this morning when I discovered that in March, 2012, a full year before publication of “Ghosts of the Past,” I had published a first draft excerpt of what became “The Ghosts of the Past.”

Normally I destroy my previous drafts on a project.  But here, a draft from chapter one remains preserved as part of the behind-the-scenes story of what I consider my greatest and best work to date as a writer.

So take a look, peer through time, and discover this rare 1st draft written five months before publication of “The Great Succession Crisis.”
