Book 1, second edition: A change in Chapter 5

22 Sep

Spoiler alert: If you have not read The House in the Old Wood, you will not want to read this post!

I’d better finish telling you what’s different in the second edition of the first book, The House in the Old Wood, before the second book, Karia’s Path, gets here!

In addition to including a map and the first chapter of Karia’s Path, the second edition of The House in the Old Wood has a minor change to the ending of Chapter 5 so you can actually see some Inamali writing. Here is how it reads in the first edition:

Bending down to pick up the quill, her shoulder brushed against the writing stand, nudging it. When she stood again, she saw that on the stand, under the dust, was a piece of paper with some writing on it.

She put the pen back in the inkwell, picked up the paper and blew the dust off.

The writing was Inamali. She recognized the slender, fine characters. And at the top, she saw the only word she could read in Inamali:

“Karia.”

In the second edition, it’s a bit longer and has … well, take a look:

Bending down to pick up the quill, her shoulder brushed against the writing stand, nudging it. When she stood again, she saw that on the stand, under the dust, was a piece of paper with some writing on it.

She put the pen back in the inkwell, picked up the paper and blew the dust off.

The writing was Inamali. She recognized the slender, fine characters. At the top, she saw a familiar word:

Karia

 It was the only word she could read in Inamali:

“Karia.”
