Motivations: The Two Dragons

The Two DragonsThe Two Dragons was originally the final third of the massive story that I had decided to call The Steel Dragon.  When I turned it into a series instead, The Two Dragons sat for a long time waiting.  When I finally had finished and published all the other five books, I looked at the manuscript again.  The story still worked, but there needed to be significant changes in the ending.

Senta had picked up a dragon egg in book 4 that I hadn’t originally counted on.  I added that.  The original manuscript had a very long epilog that detailed everything that happened to all the characters.  Since it was going to be a series, I had to take that off.  In its place I needed an ending.  I had written a little bit about Senta arriving in Brechalon (originally thinking that this would be many years later), so I added it.  As it turned out, it tied in well with The Sorceress and her Lovers.

By the way, I am still following the information about the characters in the original epilog.
