Well between a long holiday weekend plus Arkansas being visited by its sixth season, “ICE,” I managed to write three more chapters for “Witch: Legend of the Silver Hunter” book two in my planned trilogy. One chapter is actually an Interlude giving a brief cameo appearance of the sinister Ebony mage known only as the Master (not to be confused with the Time Lord/Lady of the same title) and the Dark Alpha who leads the pack hidden away on the Belle Estate. The second chapter is part of Kieran and Cory escaping to the beach for a romantic get a way from the demands of Kieran’s training for the mantle of the Silver Witch. The third chapter is one the characters in particular, Kieran’s Uncle Brom made me write. I’m not sure it’s something I want to use but it had to be written just so I could get back to the happy love scene I was trying to write for Kieran and Cory.
It’s always interesting when side characters suddenly step forward and demand attention and a bigger part in the story. Brom was always Kieran’s favorite uncle when he was a child. He taught Kieran how to disguise his magic as enchanted objects and how to forge actual enchanted silver weapons and other objects, like the rings Kieran and Cory both wear. He was also the uncle who served as a role model for young Kieran as he came to grips with his sexual orientation.
Unfortunately for Kieran by the time we meet Uncle Brom the bright hero of youth has begun to tarnish. Jealousy sets in and a descent into madness begins.
I’m 17,000 words into a planned 50,000 word story, so stay tuned for more info on “Witch: Legend of the Silver Hunter.”
