Assorted chapters from Book Two which I am currently editing and hoping to put into Book One. NOT A COMPLETE BOOK!
Due to word count limitations (keep your first novel under 100k words!), Tamria: Book One ended where it had to: with the discovery by Coren, Aloria and No-Name of the Mage Factory in Oakvale, where No-Name and the other golems were created. That seemed to me a logical place to end the first book, and better than the original cut-off point, which was after the conversation between the two villains, Kueller and Queen Beruthia.
The *real* ending to Book One, as I would like it to be, is the arrival of Coren, Gustav, Aloria and No-Name in the Sky-City of Elyssia, and their meeting with Lord Cedric, Aloria's uncle. There's a great deal more story to come, and this was the most obvious and natural place to end this volume, as it begins with Coren and the Brothers accepting the mission to kidnap the princess, and ends with Coren fulfilling it.
I'm hoping that if some publisher or agent ever does take an interest in Tamria, they will be willing to let me get away with a "longer" book that's probably close to 120k words.
