Second Edition: Length of Days
It’s here! The second edition of my first novel, Length of Days.
Everyone needs an editor. After self-publishing the first two books of the Shalemar Trilogy, Length of Days and Poetry of Days, I was privileged to publish my next novel, Custodian of the Spirits, with The Wild Rose Press. Working with professional editors led me to believe Length of Days could use a bit of polishing.
Originally meant to be a quick project before working on the next book in the Valley of Heart’s Delight Series — Book Two after Custodian of the Spirits — COVID-19 changed the plan. As a nurse, I was an essential worker, and “free time” evaporated. Thus the quick polishing project became a full reworking project completed here and there over the next two-plus years.

Concealed islands filled with amazons. What’s in your world? Join a panel of authors to discuss the nuts and bolts of worldbuilding.
