This book is the first volume of a four volume collection of short stories introducing the fantasy world of Galadore. It is part of a fantasy world including a wide range of creatures, with stories told from the perspective of humans, dwarves, elves, sprites, and goblins.
It has a mostly dark tone and is largely tied together by the theme of death. Some of these deaths are horrific, some are tragedy, some are the result of bravery and some are well deserved.
There will be three other volumes coming within the next three to six months and I plan on working with the winner of this project for volumes 2, 3, and 4. I would like to have a cover that is easily identified as part of the group, but perhaps slightly unique from the others, whether it is unique in its colors or details.
Each short story introduces on aspect of a very large world.
Volume one includes three short stories.
The first, called Moon Lilies, features a boy who faces off with a strange sprite of the woods while searching for flowers for his love.
The second, The Long Fall From Darkness, features a dwarf facing his personal demons before coming to a dark and terrible end in the halls under the mountains.
And the third, The Serpent of Ennor, features a man who is being sacrificed to a sea serpent for the crime of performing magic.
(these details are not necessary or even desired on the cover, but I thought it better to include more to give each and all of you an idea of the work).
