I quite often write things in the first draft that don’t make it into the final book. The reasons for this are many and varied, but usually it’s for the best that those cut scenes never see the light of day!
However, every now and then I cut a scene that’s perfectly respectable – it just didn’t need to be ‘on-screen’ in the book, usually for pacing reasons.
I’ve decided to share a few of these, as ‘bonus’ extra scenes, along with any ‘around the edges’ bonus scenes I write.
