The Door Within Trilogy, Author's Cut

by Biff Newsbreaker

PANAMA CITY, FLORIDA--Researcher Jackson Smythe purchased the 40 year old, single family home on the banks of Bayou George, he expected some surprises. "Spiders, snakes, an occasional gator," says Smythe. But he never expected what he found in the basement of the house. "The place was a wreck. Tools, scrap wood, mason jars full of nails and screws. So I was straightening up down there, and I heard a strange sound. It was kind of like a whoosh, followed by a whip crack." That was when Smythe realized there was something else in his basement. "A clay pot," says Smythe with an infectious grin. "Just standing there in the middle of the floor as if it had always been."

When Smythe attempted to open the clay pot, it shattered revealing three ancient scrolls. And ancient is the right word. Scientists have determined that the three parchments date back to the first century. But the contents of the scrolls are the most shocking development. "These scrolls," claims Smythe, "are the Lost Scrolls of Alleble!" Experts agree. "It has been widely postulated," explains Dr. Michelle Black of The Integrity Institute, "that the original source documents: The Door Within, The Wyrm Lord, and The Final Storm Scrolls are incomplete. Gaps in the histories recorded, mentions of other people and places, but no development. We believe that Mr. Smythe's discovery will complete the knowledge base."

While the so-called "Lost Scrolls of Alleble" have been questioned by some skeptics, followers of King Eliam here on Earth are ecstatic. "The best adventures never end!" exclaimed a gleeful Austin Roenicke of Santa Monica, California. "Never alone!" agreed Samantha Knowles of Seabrook, Maryland. Coast to coast, the Lost Scrolls are making a big splash.

I'm excited to announce that I've just completed the Lost Scrolls for the new Door Within Trilogy Paperbacks. These new editions of The Door Within, The Rise of the Wyrm Lord, and The Final Storm will be designed like the Director's Cut DVDs of favorite movies. The books will be longer, @ 25 pages on average and will include, deleted chapters, extended scenes, author and editor commentary, and even new bonus material written especially for fans.

Here's a breakdown of what Door Within readers can expect:

"Is it out yet? Is it out yet? Is it out yet?"

Okay, so half of those 'is it out yet' are mine. Still, :-D good to have dates.

I'm so excited! It'll be so fun to read the story how it was written before some of the cuts were made.

I'm going as fast as I can, M'lady. These things take time, you know. LOL

'opefully it'll be worth the wait, eh?

Always worth the wait!

:-D But TN spoiled the fans (and used the poor author most cruely) by putting all three out in a single year. Usually, there's a year between. And then fans still froth and foam. I think authors are NEVER going to be able to write fast enough for readers. What a lovely problem to have.
