Prologue to Darkspire
Inevitably as you write, you’re forced to cut away parts of a novel you really like. Best case scenario, you get to use them again in other works or as stand-alone short stories. I ended up cutting the entire prologue from the book that eventually became Legacy of Darkspire. It’s been reworked and provided here for your reading pleasure.

I’ve long been a fan of Louis L’Amour westerns. Destiny’s Founding is a (very) rough draft for a scifi western I’ve been pecking at over the last few months.
I love the idea of writing about the pioneer spirit and western expansion from the point of view of early colonists on a new planet. It has a long way to go, but I’m hoping to have something workable by late 2023.
