Anoria of Valir won last year’s character contest. I intended on writing a novel based on her character later in the year, but as I got further into my Mechanisms of Magic trilogy (my draft was 1/3 of the way through the first book), I realized that it didn’t pop the way I wanted it to.
So I’m putting Mech of Magic on the shelf for a bit and am headlong in the midst of creating a series based on Anoria. The first book takes the Anoria story in The Purple Flames anthology and inserts it further back in the story. I’ve got more characters and more action. Right now, the series is intended to stretch to seven or eight books.
More to come as I continue to pursue Anoria’s story.
