Cut Scenes

I hate having to cut scenes because it takes me so long to write them in the first part.  Sometimes it’s necessary, though and I’ve learned to be ruthless when I have to.  It doesn’t mean I don’t hold onto them though.  There have been a few occasions when I’ve been able to use them later on.

Back when I submitted the final book to my Triquetra Trilogy, Our Sacred Balance, there was an epilogue included.  At the time I was unsure about the epilogue.  I liked the way that it brought the whole series full circle, but I wasn’t sure that it was necessary because the final chapter clearly showed that Jacob and Kristair had their HEA.  I submitted it anyway and asked my editor for her opinion and we concluded that the sweet tone didn’t fit a series that had been chock full of blood, violence and sorrow.

I thought that those who were a fan of the series, might like to have a little peek at this cut scene.  I miss these two.  I hope you enjoy.
