Network of Fabulous Fantasy and Sci-Fi Authors

If you haven’t noticed yet, I like to promote fantasy and sci-fi books. Mostly because I love reading great books in those genres more than any other type of book. But, I’m a little picky. If you are a fantasy/sci-fi author as I describe in this article, I’d be happy to cross promote books and articles with you.

Volnun and the Deep Wood (Part One)

Behind Thread Slivers and Thread Strands, there is a complete history. With 15,000 years of history, there’s been time for heroes and legends unique to Niya-Yur to form. One of the fabulous legends of Niya-Yur is Damega’s flying ship the Emerald Heart. Was it real? Ticca seems to believe in it, and there is plenty of evidence, like the steel loop anchoring platform that is the fourth story of the Blue Dolphin Tavern. Where did Damega get this ship? Has there only been the one, or were there ever more than one? The combined legends around the Emerald Heart are too much to explain in a simple short story. Instead of telling the legend, I thought it would be more fun to explore it from the viewpoint of some of the people of Niya-Yur, in a mini-series.

Here is part one of a mini-series to introduce you to the origins of the Emerald Heart, Damega’s legendary flying ship.

The Best Day, Until Tomorrow.

In Thread Slivers Ticca is a strong young woman, highly trained in combat and tactics. She didn't start off like that. In fact, she was born a farmer's daughter in Rhini Wood far away from the dangers and excitements of the great cities. Come have a peak into Ticca's childhood and revisit one of Ticca's days before she started training as a Dagger.

("The Best Day. Until Tomorrow." A Ticca of Rhini Wood short story, 1725 words)

Your Excellency or Your Grace?

A number of people are confused by certain title usages within the Golden Threads world. To help relieve some confusion here is the Duianna Empire's ranking chart which includes the titles, style of address, and shows how the various ranks interact within the kingdoms founded by or separated from the original Duianna Empire. There are some other countries which have only been briefly mentioned that we might explore in future works. However, for those who have finished the first book you will see that the style of address used for all the characters does follow the correct protocols.

This includes additional items being added to the Lexicon for the second book were we have a little more high court interactions.
