Temporal Destiny Cover Art & Character Introductions

rsz_2_-_temporal_destiny_coverThe cover design for Temporal Destiny has arrived and I am really excited. I never thought that would happen, but Erica has outdone herself.  The decision to go with the same basic design but alter the title and cover colour makes the series easier to follow and locate.

In Temporal Destiny we meet a completely new cast of characters. Set hundreds of years into the future we find Dorganna back up to her tricks. Only this time the task is not to create a sword but to find the 6 blades and reassemble them. Changes have occurred to their world, people have forgotten the purpose of the sword and even the location.

Whose Cup is it?

What started out as a favour for my next door neighbour has morphed into an idea for a new book. But I am getting ahead of myself. Bruce approached me after listening to my descriptions of parts of my series that I am working on and asked if I could write the backstory for a character he had developed in a local D&D group. I said yes, needing a diversion at the time from editing.

The first of 5 characters came out of the discussion. Grog, a Barbarian is shunned in his clan and forced to leave. Freeda, a Halfling with a chip on her shoulder larger than her full 4′ stature wants to become an aggressive spell caster. Not…continue reading ⇒

A Warrior Maidens choice of Armour

If you are a gamer like I am, especially one who plays a fantasy MMO, you will have noticed that a madiens armour is somewhat lacking. A male warrior, paladin, or death knight is covered from head-to-toe with plate and usually have large helms that completely cover their heads. While the ladies armour is crafted to show off their shapely figures and draw attention to them rather than protect them.

Collegehumor has produced a video on You Tube that deals with that very problem. Make sure you watch it to the very end.

Interesting Characters

I am asking for your input, as we work through the make up of each character. I am going to post first their names, obviously, then their ‘trade’ with a brief description of what that trade implies. We are then going to work through each character, their qualities and characteristics I feel they have, or would like to explore.

I would ask you if these traits are plausible, for example can a rogue, or thief, be honour bound? Is their word their bond, etc. I look forward to exploring each character’s growth with you. You never know your opinion, or suggestion may just help shape the characters into something that is bigger than life, and create their own following. The…continue reading ⇒

From the Author

The Eye of Zul is what some refer to as high fantasy. Come back frequently and discover the characters as they grow. I will take you on side trips, down rabbit holes and into warrens as we discover the background behind each character.

This is a long series, to date there will be 6 books. Four have been written, number 5 is being drafted. Book 1 is going through that painful editing stage. It has to be done, but it is not something I enjoy doing. Book1 -‘The Epic Journey Begins’ is the history of why and how the Eye of Zul was created. You will be introduced to two bards, Anorac & Kaori, 2 bards, that are thrust into…continue reading ⇒
