The sequel to Naples resident Sandy Lender’s 2007 fantasy novel “Choices Meant for Gods” was a long time coming. Now, to the great satisfaction of her fans, the long-awaited “Choices Meant for Kings” is available. Like the first title, it is from ArcheBooks Publishing.
Why the wait? Well, not because of any writer’s block on Sandy Lender’s part. Writer’s block is something this committed author has never experienced and doesn’t understand.
Most of “Choices Meant for Kings” was already completed when “Choices Meant for Gods” appeared. However, she says, ArcheBooks “had hiccups with the production schedule,” and many other titles were slated for production ahead of hers.
Ms. Lender originally conceived of a two-part series, but when she presented Archebooks with a 270,000-word manuscript, some rethinking was necessary. The cutting process required to make “Gods” an affordable project left material available to be relocated in “Kings.” What was intended as a two-part series has now become a trilogy in order to distribute effectively all the material Ms. Lender created to explore the doings in the land of Onweald.
