"For the sake of humanity, join in Bitterwood's revolt." - Kirkus Reviews

Ten chapters finished! I just wrote a full chapter from the POV of my secondary antagonist for the third book, Vulpine, a sky-dragon with the profession of slavecatcher, a job that is pretty easy to figure out from the job-title. Vulpine had appeared a few times in earlier chapters, but most of those scenes were just him talking. In chapter ten, he really gets to show off why everyone has seemed afraid of him in the earlier scenes. I tell you, a good bad-guy scene almost writes itself.

Help Wanted: Human slave for meanial toil. Squalid conditions - No pay - Lifetime career opportunity! Scale burnishing skills a plus.

Sadly, it quickly became evident that the ads in town newsletters didn't exactly have applicants lining up, thus making our friend Vulpine's job necessary.

(Though I'd apply if it'd help your books out the door faster. :) )

Thunder, thanks for the enthusiasm. I don't currently have an opening for scale-burnisher, but you might check with the boys at Solaris Books. They seem to be a bit short-handed these days.
