In the spirit of the old seasonal song, I’m offering you the 12 days of countdown.
Mine, though, are in reverse order.
Ten torrid territories:
Muhnilahm – island home where it all begins
Niphralon – savage land that some are forced to visit
Aashnon – the edge of the known world – a mystery
Choshinahm – the ancient homeland; hope for some
Tohltaz – desert land where visitors tread with care
Deztal – just passing through
Cushlanah – wide-open spaces, full of the unknown
Rophan-Ra – where three great cities vie for prominence
Kabalyt – land of threat and promise
Ndagaal – outpost at the end of an adventure
These are some of the regions of my invented world. The map displays them so that you can follow the progress of the various groups as they travel in search of answers, glory, or to rescue loved ones. Trek with them to learn their priorities, their fears, their hopes, their dreams and their fates. All is revealed in the trilogy. Book 1, A Seared Sky: Joinings, published by Fantastic Books Publishing, is launched as paperback and ebook on 30th March. And you can join in the fun on the day by clicking this link.
