The Theft of Light started life as a NaNoWriMo story in 2018. I abandoned it after a few days, deciding instead to work on the second book in The Rule of Light trilogy. I am thankful I ditched it as I could let it percolate in the back of my mind over the course of a year.
When I eventually picked it back up, I had so much more to add. I imagined it as a short 10,000 word story I could give away for free to let people see what I could do. I had no idea that during writing it would balloon to 40,000 words. Nearly a full novel! Well, I am still going to give it away for free to anyone that signs up to my monthly newsletter.
Before I ramble too much, let us talk about the cover! Yes, this is my first ever cover. Both designed by myself and also the first cover for any book of mine. I am so excited to share it with you and to put it out there for all to see.
