Witches of the Pinspecked Void

pillars of creation deep zoom
a novel by Ran Prieur
I've suspended work on this novel. Writing book one was one of the most rewarding things I've ever done, but nobody else liked it as much as I did, and since then I've been increasingly bogged down in attempts to get it to full length. Meanwhile, I started another project that's going better. I think this novel failed to find an audience because of bad exposition, a problem I'm now solving by writing in the first person.
