Not everything makes it through the editing process. Sometimes things are cut because while they may be fun, they slow down the pacing of a story or just don’t tell us anything new about the characters. When you’re looking at a text and want to tighten it up, often these sorts of little scenes just have to go no matter how much you love them.
Here are four such outtakes from The Jackal’s House. I was able to reuse a section or a line or two here and there, but most of this didn’t appear in the published book.
