Draft 5 In Progress - 09/09/14 3:05 am

In early 2014, I began rewriting Destalis and have now finished the first quarter of draft 5. This version is much more streamlined. The story gets going sooner, is less verbose, and moves along much more quickly. We're not in the head of Lyana (formerly Lynn) as often, and events unfold a bit differently. Now that BC9 has been published, I'm excited to get back to Destalis.

Destalis Draft 4 - 02/19/09 1:34 am

After careful consideration, I've decided to overhaul the plot of Destalis once again. The events of the story aren't changing significantly. Rather, I'm giving it a new framework that deals more heavily with the religious beliefs of each world. I've just begun Draft 4 and have rewritten the synopsis accordingly. Unfortunately, this delays any publishing efforts.
