To Draw Upon The Familiar’s Own

Okay, I’ve just finished my latest work, “The Magician’s Familiar” and yeah, really feeling the emptiness after having written some 115k, diverse characters that I loved – no, adored – and had a story that has been with me for a very long time. Years, in fact. As I started writing this one in 2017. Wow! No wonder I know Eltham, Ryan, Logor, and Drake so well!

I even made a companion to the story, a sort of “bible” if you will which explained the magic and other things that happened within the main book. And yes, I actually made this with my own drawings, by sticking things onto the pages, gluing in pretty papers, and using stickers from a craft shop as well as lettering and other fancy things. Its about 64 pages long! I remember it took me ages!

Here are some sample pics of it (some of these pages are described in the actual book too):

I used the images of my characters in the book I made so I knew what they’d be like when I wrote them. Also, a lot of things have changed since I did this “bible” for the practicality/logic/plot of the story being the main reason. But yeah, the bones of it all started here. It’s funny when I read over this now knowing what I kept and what I had to change for the story. Then again, I may add some of the elements in future tales. Never know!

I can’t wait until you can all read “The Magician’s Familiar” as I hope to post more things about it soon, including the blurb and a release date. Stay tuned.
