Hello!

A little shameless self promotion (I read the rules and it said this was the place).

Crowd funding long over. Thanks everyone.

Blurb redacted. New one will come when published.

Here is a painting of one of the characters:

Awesome fanart, did you make it? I assume the story is a classic hero's journey?

Thanks for the compliment! :-)

I had the artwork commissioned for the series to help readers get familiar with the world. It does follow the classic hero's journey with some (I hope) interesting twists along the way.

Is the book already published? Will you sell it, or put it on the Net?

The book is coming out next year, but we have a 90,000 (approx) word preview that will be available soon. Our Indiegogo should be launched about the 10th (or so) this month, and we'll have the preview ready by then.

There will be a chance with Indiegogo to get limited editions in pdf, mobi, or epub, and there will also be paperbacks and hardbacks as well as different schwag. It will be a pretty good value since they come with extra goodies.

We've been working on this for a little over four years. By the time we finish we'll be at the five year mark which is about right for this type of book.

That's a lot of effort. Are fantasy worlds complicated to create?

I would say yes. It varies considerably, but we spent a lot of time getting all the details right. I believe you really have to spend time to get the best results. However, some authors do great with minimal world building.

Readers pick up on whats implied "off the page" and they appreciate complex, yet coherent world building.

I think a fantasy world is more interesing if you can relate parts of it with real life. I got a bit lost in the ones without reason or rhyme.

Yes that's key. If it's too alien there's nothing for people to connect with. Our world is pretty accessible. We set it up so it's easy to grab at first.

Yes I'll post it in here in just a few days. We are in the final stages before we launch. We'll have a pdf, and an epub for Kindle, Nook, and the Ipad. It's a pretty clean version but oddly the converter still does strange things like turning "-" into "/" sometimes. :(

But for a preview it should be okay.
