It’s my birthday and I’ll write what I want to. This year, I’m giving more of myself in all areas. I’m more of a birthday resolution type of person–I feel that I should change for the next year from the day I was born rather than the first of the year. This year I have a book (that I learned in PDF can be read on a Kindle and people as far as Italy want one so they can read this story). I want to do more (like give back to the Samaritan Center that fed me when I was hungry or send school supplies to children in Texas). First thing first–Happy Birthday to anyone born on September 4. It is a holiday and few people are paying attention to the un-famous of us: There’s a new royal baby coming and on Twitter, it’s Bey Day (today’s her 36 birthday). So, here’s my “happy birthday” to you on my birthday as well (still waiting for any family to call; not holding my breath).
Secondly, for those who are reading The Kingdom of the Woodland Realm Trilogy (in any form), I updated the Appendix (the first draft was wild and out of sorts; this one is far better, but I’m just starting the second book of the trilogy so it will be updated a lot as things progress).
Go Here: TKWR Trilogy Updated Appendix to download if you like. If you have the old version, scrap it, though it is attached to the first full draft of Book II: The Saga of Thranduil. But, Brace Yourself: Christmas is Coming and the first full draft of Book II: The Saga of Thranduil–Extended Version will be available. For those that don’t know, the Extended Version is where Thranduil’s wife does not die and lives to give birth to their daughter who is a Daddy’s Girl and is a lot like her father.
But wait, there’s more–and by that I mean, I just added more to the Extended Version of Book II, but no one will see it until the final complete version (edited with little to no errors), but will be in Book III: The Last Tale of Legolas Lasgalen–Extended Version. There are three versions of the trilogy: The original, the Extended Version and the Annotated Version (the Original). 499+ pages down and 1000+ more to go. When I’m done, I’ll have a doorstop I am proud of having my name upon.
Give me time–it’s only been 18 or 19 months since I began (I write 12 hours a day/7 days a week; not human–don’t try this at home. In between people wonder how I actually get reading done–I have no idea but I do). It will be while. There will only be an annotated version of the Extended version IF it is chosen between the two books to be ‘fan canon‘. It was actually requested, so that’s why it exists in the first place.
