Here I post about all things fantasy and give tips on writing a book based on my experience. My three main books form a trilogy called the Prophecy of the Kings, a Gold Award Winning book, and I've also written Drachar's Demons. Happy to chat so please feel free to comment on any of my blogs. Good reading - David

Fantasy character creation
Not sure how other author's feel but I feel a strong empathy for my characters. Somehow, they feel quite real. I wrote a short excerpt for Vastra called Vastra’s Tale
This describes Vastra’s ghost, wandering the world, seeking redemption by telling his story of his betrayal. I felt sad writing it. It was almost as if by telling his story Vastra was seeking forgiveness.
Perhaps in writing a novel, authors have a due care. Are we really creating those worlds? To me the people in my novel seem as real as any I have met. I wonder if Tolkien felt the same.
