Work on Chasing Redemption, Book 3 of the Dragon's Bidding Series is progressing, slowly but still progressing. I'm not the world's speediest writer. While it's under construction, I thought you might enjoy reading a deleted scene from A Hero for the Empire.
A reader once faulted me for letting my two main characters fall in love too quickly. Actually, Fitz spend a lot more time on Wolf's base--about 9000 words worth--in the original version. Hero was my first book and weighed in at a hefty 160k words. Friends who were wiser than I suggest that it needed to be cut a bit. Of the four deleted scenes that have languished in my computer for several years, one was a zero gravity handball game between the pair that is being recycled into another story. The one below appeared to me almost in its entirety while I drove through sugar cane country in South Florida.
