Another question...

Today's question was from naomi_was_here:
Why didn't Simon go back instead of having a new baby?

There are several reasons Simon did not return, until later in the book anyway. The main reason is that Rachk'sha would have known Simon if he did return and would have destroyed him before Simon achieved his full powers. Simon returns only after Rachk'sha thinks he's already gotten 'The Seed' out of the way. If I tell you more, it might spoil the story for you.

I'm really enjoying these questions that people are posting on my forum. If any of you have a question and don't have access to the forum, feel free to post a comment and I'll be happy to answer.

A Question - Answered and Random Chaos Update

This question was posted to my forum by Saluki 357:
Why does The Lady live in a garden?

When Maker created the four universes, He created The Lady, The Lord, The Duke and The Duchess to rule over them. Each was given a home in the center of their universe that they would find pleasant. The Lady is most comfortable in a garden, so The Garden was Maker's gift to her. Time cannot touch The Garden, though the rhythms of nature exist there. Since there are so many plants, there are two seasons and rains fall to nourish the life within the garden. The two seasons are the Season of Bloom, when all the plants are in full leaf and flower, and the Season of Dormancy, which is when the plants have time to grow their roots and rest.

The Lady is a very powerful goddess. She has no need for a dwelling, sleep, or rest. She spends her life enjoying The Garden Maker provided for her and watching over her creations in her universe. So, in summary, The Lady lives in a garden because that is where she is most happy.

Random Chaos Update:
*For a limited time, the Kindle version of Shadow of the Ghost is specially priced at 99 cents.
*Legacy of the Ghost is very near completion. Most likely, I have about 4 or 5 chapters to go. It will be published using CreateSpace and will also be available on Kindle. Hopefully, Legacy will have some interior artwork.
