Chapter 5 of “The Grand Mythos” is Live!

Chapter five of “The Grand Mythos of Úr’Dan” just went up yesterday. And I’m shortening my publication schedule again. Look out for the next chapter in just three weeks!

“The Blood Seas and the Womb of the Earth” is the longest chapter yet in my series, and I would argue the most exciting. A new character arrives!

Genre: fantasy, high fantasy, mythic fantasy

Chapter Blurb: The First Four Vai’ad have begun to shape the Void to their liking, but Go’Dan wishes to create new life. They will soon discover that by combining their powers, the Vai’ad can truly master their world.

Series Blurb:

Every world has its folktales, but even folktales carry a part of the truth. Follow the first beings in the universe as they try to bring order and life to their home. Witness the creation of the vibrant world of Úr’Dan, and the fantastic creatures who live there. Based on the unique fantasy universe of the novel, The Warden of Everfeld: Memento.

Friday Write-Day: All the W.I.P.!

This has been a tough week, mainly due to stress at work. Unfortunately, I haven’t quite mastered compartmentalizing work stress from my home life, so I needed a break from computer-related endeavors.

In short, I didn’t write much this week.

I did, however, get myself a bit more organized for my upcoming works-in-progress. Note the plural there. Continue reading “Friday Write-Day: All the W.I.P.!”

Exploring Úr’Dan: The Western Uplands

In the hopes of reviving this series as a monthly installment, I’d like to talk about another region of northern Úr’Dan. The Western Uplands have received terribly little attention in my writings so far.

I must admit, this region of Úr’Dan is not as fleshed out as some of the others we’ve discussed. We’re changing that today! Continue reading “Exploring Úr’Dan: The Western Uplands”

Exploring Úr’Dan: The Rainflow Valleys

I did not realize how long it’s been since I wrote one of these. Apologies if you’ve felt bombarded over the head with writing updates, marketing tips, and publishing think-pieces for four months.

Not heartfelt apologies, though. I regret nothing.

But now it’s time to scroll all the way in on another region of my fantasy world: The Rainflow Valleys. Continue reading “Exploring Úr’Dan: The Rainflow Valleys”

Exploring Úr’Dan: Naebvael

Many of the smaller regions or groups in Úr’Dan wield inordinate power over the subcontinent. We’ve already seen this with Driftport, the city out of which all Úr’Daní trade flows, and the Arrowhead, which serves as a necessary stopping point for trade flowing up and down Everwash.

Well, as promised, we’re going to look at yet another region that, while geographically and demographically small, holds enormous sway in Úr’Dan. Continue reading “Exploring Úr’Dan: Naebvael”

Exploring Úr’Dan: The Arrowhead

I’ve managed to fall into a monthly rhythm with this series without even trying. However, I may do an extra one this month in honor of NaNo.

For today’s journey, I’d like to take you to a small region that wields significant influence in the Uplands — some might even say disproportionate influence. Continue reading “Exploring Úr’Dan: The Arrowhead”

Exploring Úr’Dan: Bargers and Southerners

It’s been a while since I’ve written a real post. At least it feel that way to me. I thought providing a bit more world-building info would be a nice way to ease myself back into a more regular writing/blogging routine.

As I discussed in the last installment of this series, the peoples living in the southern half of Úr’Dan are far more diverse than their neighbors to the north. Continue reading “Exploring Úr’Dan: Bargers and Southerners”

Exploring Úr’Dan: The Southern Half

In my first three posts in this series, I discussed the general aspects of my world-building, such as the language and the mythology. Then, I delved a little bit deeper into the geography and peoples of the northern half of Úr’Dan, providing some insight into the the people and landscapes seen in The Warden of Everfeld: Memento.

Now, I think it’s time we visit the southern half of Úr’Dan. Continue reading “Exploring Úr’Dan: The Southern Half”
