    Epilogue - Author's Notes

    tl;dr: The color of a Unicorn’s magic is as unique as one of our finger prints. To see a room colored just so would be reassuring to a Unicorn in trouble.

    The Southern Orchard - Author's Notes

    tl;dr: Don’t buck apple trees if you’re tired. You’re liable to pull something.

    What would it be like to not cast a shadow? Hold your hand up over your face to block the sun. Can you still see the light source? If so, how do you see through your hand? If not, how is the skin immediately around your eyes illuminated? I mean, magic, sure. But how?

    Betrayal - Author's Notes

    tl;dr: HE STOLE IT RIGHT OUT OF HER SADDLEBAGS.

    ---

It hit me earlier while I was looking through my author’s notes. I started this chapter, like, over a year ago. And it wasn’t even close to the first bits that I wrote. I’ve been consumed by this story for all of three years, now.

I don’t know how other authors do it—writing and posting a chapter every few days, without blocking it all out beforehand. That’s not for me.

Next time, in two weeks: The Tome of Shadows, or Rough Seas. I hope they can swim!
