Last week I finally published the third volume of the Koholt Chronicles, The Colours of the Past. Like the two preceding volumes, it is a short story/novella/thing of about 11 000 words. Unlike those predecessors, it is the first installment in the series where we are not going down to the mines. We are still going places though, and we will see the first appearances of elements that previously only have been hinted at.
Also, it’s called The Colours of the Past for a reason! When I first began writing the Koholt Chronicles I envisaged how the various titles in my series would be colour-coded according to where they would take place; blue books for one place, green for another. Eventually I realised that this was yet another example of a fancy idea that does not, in the end, really add that much, so I dropped it and got the new covers you see today. But the concept of thinking of places in terms of colours stuck, and I found it evocative to play around with as I worked on this title.
The next installment is out in early June. Till then, I hope you all will enjoy seeing Koholt again!
