In my previous post I had mentioned that I was beginning a fantasy novel. Naturally this means that I have had less time to blog and create other resources for my followers. (Granted, not a huge following, but I get usually over a thousand views a month.). If there is something you would like help compiling information on, musically, please leave me a comment so I can keep that it mind!
My book is geared toward younger readers, in the middle to high school age range. My characters range from age 11 to early 20s (for the primary characters). There are dragons and other fantasy elements, but I am attempting to keep things as real as possible otherwise, so that it will seem as though this is a past that could have happened.
Culturally the world is distinctly Anglo-Saxon, with other characters of Celtic (Welsh/Pict/Celtic) and Eastern (Arabic) ancestry making appearances.
I would love your input on:
- “Lessons” you might like to have included in a story of this type.
- Elements you love to see in fantasy novels.
- Elements you hate to see in fantasy novels.
- And elements that you love to hate in fantasy novels. (Example: George R.R. Martin is excellent with plot twists and killing off unexpected and seemingly necessary characters, and it makes for great story telling, but I still hate it!)
