Dragons In Flight completes the Maze Beset Trilogy, and it’s now available in ebook and paperback, pretty much everywhere you can get books online. Looking back, I kind of regret declaring this to be a trilogy from the outset. Not that the trilogy is bad or anything, I happen to feel it’s good stuff. It’s just that now, I’m done with that story, and I feel like there are still more stories to tell with the characters. There’s nothing stopping me from treating it like a prologue to a series or a collection of standalones, I just think that, in retrospect, I probably should have set it up as an open-ended series from the start.
This particular volume took a long time (for me, anyway) to feel like I got it right; the final version bears only minimal resemblance to the first draft. It was a hard slog to make it feel complete. I’m now waving a sad goodbye to Bobby, who will probably never be my main character again. Instead, I’m taking a close look at the female characters, and thinking about making one of them the focus of a new story in that crazy world.
