I have been wondering about a question I have had for a while. In one the outtakes (Annobeunna's Tale) Drochondeur is mentioned as Lord Annobeunna Master of the Household. In that outtake Annobeunna was going to give him to the High King as a gift, but Vieliessar refused. In chapter 15 (The Hero's Tale) in Crown of Vengeance, Drochondeur was mentioned as Master of the Household for Vieliessar. A lot that was implied more then stated, but I was wondering how that changed?

I can not say the exact page, because the Nook version page, does not match the Hardback. It was really one sentence in the scene before the skirmish with Inglethendragir.

Thank you for your time

1. How long did it take you to develop your voice and style? And how can I as a writer develop mine?
2. Also, do you plan your book ahead of time using a certain story structure, or do you just set your fingers in gear and just fly?

Thanks for the advice. I have done some of that and have found that my writing is better for it; but it is always good to be reminded, and it is good to know that other authors have used the same techniques to improve their craft.

Thanks for the response!


Maps of the lands

Is there, somewhere, a map of the lands from both the Crown and Prophesy series?

I've tried to sketch one out as I've read the books, but I know I'm not getting this correct.

And this is merely my personal mind-set. I'm a field biologist and I always have a map in my head of where I am (even if it's a land set in a story).

Thanks for any light you can shed -

Thanks for the tidbit on where Armethalieh is on the Crown of Vengeance map. I've been trying to figure that out since I first read the book a few years ago.

On a different topic, I'm really happy to hear you've finished writing Blade. I loved Crown and have been eagerly awaiting Blade since I first finished reading Crown. Is there someone we can write at Tor to let them know not to sit on the manuscript for a year before starting to work on it? :)

1. Did the "Grand Windsward" of Vieliessar's time eventually constitute at least part of the Elven Lands visited by Harrier and Tiercel?
2. Is the shrine around which the Sanctuary of the Star is built the same one that Savilla would try to use?
3. Will Sentarshadeen be built within House Caerthalien's lands? (Based on what you said about Armethalieh, I assume so.)
4. Does Kindling correspond to Groundhog Day?
5. What happened to Lady Amintia? Was she still available by the time Cilarnen returned to Armethalieh or had she been "quickly married" as Lord Volpiril said he would recommend?
6. Are the Dragon's Gate and the Gatekeeper the same pass?
7. Was Kareta hoping that she and Harrier would develop the same kind of relationship that her father and Kellen had? (Also, we know her father was Shalkan; was her mother Shalkan's lady-love Calmeren?)
I hope I haven't overwhelmed you with the number of questions I have. Thanks again for this opportunity

Like Chichiri, I too would like to know if there is a way to write to Tor to "encourage" them to work on Blade of Empire sooner rather than later.

Also, should there be any significant cuts to BoE, any chance they'll end up here once the book is released? And if so, could you let us know where it had been cut so we could read it together with the rest?

It is fine, I was just curious. As much as I wish it, some things have things have to take place 'off stage' so to speak. Else some people may think the book would be to long. Don't know where they get that idea though.

Thank you for taking the time to answer, I really do appreciate it.

Multiple Questions

Hi! I'm very glad to hear Blade of Empire is on its way! My questions are:
1. What is it like to publish with another author? Do you work together or take separate passages to write and come together to edit and put them together?
2. Will there be another book in the One Dozen Daughters series?

In Crown of Vengeance, there is the paragraph where Vielle wakes from a dream of the past. She is wondering why the High King and his queen's children would have to flee from the royal city. It's mentioned that they are considered tainted and unclean. My question has to do with that, why did the ancient elves believe Pelashia's children were tainted?

You mentioned in an earlier post that Tor planned to release a novella taking place within Crown of Vengeance are they still planning to do that? Or has the idea been Scrapped?

Once again I love this World you created and could not get enough of it.

Drat, was hoping that it'd be answered in Blade. Now that she had found and claimed the High King's city and all.

The next book in the "Dragon Prophecy" series is Blade of Empire. It will be published by Tor Books at the end of 2017.
