This week I reached into my folder and pulled out a rejection from OMNI magazine:
I’m going to file this one under “sentences that you are unlikely to see on contemporary elementary school writing assignments”. I’m sure you can guess which sentence I mean.
The results of voting are in and once again Dragon Stones is the readers’ choice for a scene of the month! Taking the book off the shelf and flipping to a random page got me this scene, which is quite near the beginning and, once again, involves some misfortune befalling poor Adaran. There really is a dragon in this book, honest — in fact, in this scene, Adaran and his companions have just returned from a raid on her lair. I just haven’t pulled any scenes yet in which the dragon actually appears. But if Dragon Stones keeps winning the polls, I’m sure she will turn up here eventually.
