From now on all updates will be on Friday. This puts it on the same schedule for all three furry sites I post on and meets the contract requirements for posting the story, which was supposed to be no more than once a week. I talked the publisher into an exception to get caught up on the two sites that were started later. I'll dedicate Mondays to new artwork as long as more is coming in and I'll continue to do the writing tips posts on Tuesdays. I'm a little sad to have to reduce the number of posts. While hardly a huge talk fest, this site gets the most feedback of the three. (Scary huh) and I love to hear from people as often as possible. As I've said, I don't get a lot of feedback for my writing so I highly value what I do get.
What Once was Eden is Book Two of A Ship Called Hope, the prequal trilogy to my Sajani Tails series. The books are part of the Terah game world by Rossi Publishing Games. You can find the print and digital versions of the first book here. The Amazon Kindle version is also available, as well as one for Apple Books. You can search Chaaya Chandra to find me.
Before she rose to be the pirate queen of Terah, Sajani was a rather selfish and uncaring petty criminal. Sent to Rhidayar to go to school, the fifteen year old wants nothing more than to return home to her friends and continue her shadowy lifestyle.
When the chance presents itself, she takes up with an escaped vykati slave and tries to make her way back to Drtithen. What should be a difficult trip quickly turns deadly when the human nation not only mounts an all out assault on the young pair, but also begins to prepare to go to war with Vharkylia.
Notes on the previous installment.
Sajani's ADHD inattentive type shows up in both the prequel and the later books as does her temper. Her mild claustrophobia and acute monophobia are both resolved in the prequel. There's a tendancy in current writing to try and either completely hide faults or to over accentuate them. I try to keep Sajani and others grounded. (For those that have read the other books: Tess is impulsive and Chass, you'll later see actually has quite the temper. Although mostly what you see so far is him not having a temper when getting mad would have actually been helpful.) The claustrophobia however, was something I didn't know about until she got in the box.
