This is the novel that's had two agents, but been rejected umpteen times by publishers, not because they don't think it's any good, but because it wouldn't sell enough copies. Sigh... So now green_knight wants me to hurry up and write volumes 1 and 3 (I'm following the unusual course of writing a trilogy from the middle outwards.) I suspect I will keep writing bits of book 1, even though it's not my "offical" WIP at the moment. I like those characters and I miss them.
