Back From My Road Trip!

Hello friends!

I've been gone almost ten days now on a road trip back east with little opportunity to write, but here I am now and can't wait to get back to it! I haven't learned how to type effectively using a smartphone and I don't own a tablet...yet. I did do a little YouTube surfing before falling asleep at the various motels and found this entertaining video I hope you will enjoy.

I was once an AOL Help Desk Techie and now I am a writer so this video REALLY got me laughing. Enjoy this and I hope to have the next segment of "The Priestess and the Ravenknight" for you soon.

It's so good to be home again!

A Tiaeran Enarch

Today I offer you my newest drawing: A Tiaeran Enarch.  These are used on Tiaera and are mentioned in our novel, Realmwalkers. 

They were created by a few of the most powerful Master Wizards ages ago. They are kept inside a warded and guarded mage tower. The mages stand watch so that the arch is always protected and available for public use. Enarchs are not very big. They are only about 10 ft. tall by 4 ft. wide. This is because they are meant to keep public threats like evil giants, oversized monsters and creatures from entering. Also, it's a fact that the smaller the portal, the better it works. Traveling from enarch to enarch takes only about a minute in travel time. If more than one traveler needs to use the enarch, they must wait about five minutes so that the enarch can get back to full power. 

Excerpt from "Realmwalkers": This way, if you please,” said Agatha, addressing the new recruit primarily. “This is what we call an ‘Enchanted Arch’ - or ‘Enarch’ for short - and there are only three of these so far: here in Kyngeston, another in Arcwynd, Naelos and one more at Espion City, Sangrey. We are currently building one each at Moonlyte City and Summerly, but ‘twill take some time. Construction has been hindered by the lack of necessary components as well as a dispute betwixt our guild mages and the Tiaeran Shipbuilders Guild. The shipbuilders are worried that with enough enarches around, they will be put out of business."
