One of the original drafts of Not Your Villain totaled about 110,000 words! In making a better book, this story had to be streamlined. One of the challenging parts about editing (and saddest) is cutting scenes, especially scenes I loved to write. I had so much extra story that I thought it would be fun to share some of these with you.
In one of the drafts for Seven Tears At High Tide, I thought about doing a series of flashbacks, but it didn’t end up working with the flow of the story. This is a scene from Morgan’s adolescence and shows more of his relationship with the rest of the selkies and his thoughts on how he fits in.
