Trivia Tidbit: This was the first story of the series known as ‘Tales of Aldura’ that I completed, and it was the catalyst for writing Choices. Kaserie’s Choice sprang from a writing prompt posted in a very small on-line writing/critique group to which I belonged. The group was unique not only for its small size (the owner/moderator intentionally kept it at less than 40 members), but also because 4/5 of the members were readers only. It was those non-writers who (imo) made that group the best of any writing/critique group I’ve participated in. Their reactions, comments, questions were invaluable. Regrettably it no longer exists (hasn’t for many years). I still miss it.
