Aenya Newsletter: Welcome to the Aenya-verse!

I sometimes feel like Eldin, the time-traveling historian, hopping between ages. The world of Aenya has been brewing in my skull for almost twenty years now. I remember advertising that the The Dark Age of Enya would soon be released in 2000! Sadly, these vast time periods tend to alienate fans, because after nearly two decades, I've...

Aenya Newsletter 12/7/18

"But why is she naked?"This is the most annoying question I get about Ages of Aenya, whenever I post a picture of the Ilmar on social media. While the vast majority of comments are positive, I will inevitably get roasted for lack of realism on Facebook fantasy groups that allow for artistic nudity. On these same... Continue Reading →

Aenya Newsletter 9/01/2017

Greetings, fans! The question I am most asked about Aenya is the most obvious one: when the heck is the book coming out? All I can say is, be patient.

Aenya News Update: 11/29/16

A few months ago, I put out a request for artists for the upcoming 2017 edition of Ages of Aenya. After a bit of vetting, by which we produced the Avian and Horde (below), I settled on the talented Zhengyi Yu. I chose Zhengyi for his painterly style, which better suits a novel, I feel, than the more cartoony styles of... Continue Reading →

The Princess of Aenya Query Letter #1

Dear Editor, The Princess of Aenya is a fantasy adventure reminiscent of Peter S. Beagle's The Last Unicorn and Michael Ende's The Never Ending Story, with a little bit of Song of Ice and Fire injected for good measure. It stands roughly at 125,000 words.
