"...freedom is an ongoing process my dear. The pain you feel in here—” she released my wrist and slowly placed her hand on my chest, “—is a sign you are experiencing deeper realms of living. Those who initially seek freedom discover that the pain is too much, the feelings are inexplicable and run too deep, so they close themselves off again and end up living in servitude wherever they go. Maintain contact with this—” she patted on my chest, “and you will forever be free, even if you are chained in a cell, and even if death takes you.”
This novel is short, being only 60,000 words, and takes a different narrative perspective than its predecessor The Oaql Seed. Looking at a 5 part series for the Treeboat saga, I find that the writing and editing process is just another facet of life now. Still, I hope to have this story circulating in the collective consciousness, contributing perspective in some small way, sooner than later!
Also, we've been keeping busy with a new venture called ZtoA.Press, a co-creation with my brother to monetize the writing and editing we do at—nearly—a daily basis.
