Trant’s Tale is a short story, a novelette really (about 12,000 words) covering the back story for Trant, the river barge master that Marrinek meets when he sails from Riverbridge to Vensille. It came about because I wanted to explore some of the history behind the character and understand (or explain) how he came to empathise with Marrinek’s plight. On the face of it, their situations seem very different but, buffeted by forces beyond their control, they’re both victims, to some degree.

Trant’s Tale will be on Amazon soon at £0.99, and I hope you’ll pick it up and enjoy a short dive into the background of one of the saga’s minor characters.
