Fantasy Books and Stories… Well Aged.
Elerien is a fantasy book series and short stories, written by David Brooks.
I started writing the stories of Elerien and its cast over sixteen years ago. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve started it or re-started writing it since. To be honest, I’m glad that I never finished it.
Until now that is.
I’ve had time to understand the characters and to really take in the world that needed to exist. (Not to mention the life perspective you gain in sixteen years!) Soon the main series will be ready to read. If you would like a message from me when it is, sign up below and you’ll get the first chapter for free. Once it has emerged victoriously from the gauntlet of editing, that is.
Around the main books of the Elerien series, I’ll be releasing short fantasy stories to fill in the gaps. Some will be untraditionally short, others will be more like true short stories or novellas. Some will even be free!
“Fantasy Books” and “fantasy writing” can mean a lot of different things. The stories of Elerien might be for you if…
- You like fantasy stories about new lands where magic exists but is not well-understood.
- A mix of familiar and unfamiliar fantasy elements is intriguing.
- You want a fantasy book series you can safely read to your children, but are not written directly for kids or YA audiences.
- You’re okay with stories that occasionally leave you to guess at the unknown.
The first book in the Elerien series, From Where Sings The Darkness, is due for release in late 2018 or early 2019.
