AOS Fan Art: Zai’al!

AOS Fan Art: Zai'al!

Squee! Today I received another surprise piece of fan art for All Our Sins! This time, Melissa decided to draw Zai’al, a character from the third book, Apocalypse.

In Apocalypse, Zai’al is the Avatar, which is basically like being the Pope, except that the Avatar is embued with power given by the goddess, Årdra. This means she can perform what seem to be magical feats and miracles that science can’t explain. Zai’al’s name means “heavenly strength”. Sometimes, she’s not a very nice person.

Melissa decided to show Zai’al as how she might look if she was a Celestial sehashi, which is a type of uber badass magical girl from Melissa’s book series Stars of Destiny.

Crossover fan art is a lot of fun! It’s really interesting to see how characters from one universe might fit into someone else’s.

I love it! ♥ Thank you very much!

Evolving an Idea

Evolving an Idea

The other day my muse woke up a little and hit me with a strong desire to update the Heart of the Empire Music article, so I did. The list has gone from twenty to thirty songs and I created a proper playlist on YouTube too! The ten new additions had been rattling around in my head for a while and it was high time I got them added to my personal playlist as well as here on the website. The choice of these new songs was inspired by (or because they inspired) changes to the story that I’ve been contemplating in the last year. Enjoy!

The plot changes are in-progress (still working on not being a slow writer)…but updating the soundtrack wasn’t all my muse had in store for me!


A New Chibi Dezyrí

A New Chibi Dezyrí

It’s been a long while since I had any truly new art to share for Heart of the Empire, but on Saturday I had an opportunity to get a commission from Sarah “Sakky” Forde. She was kind enough to draw Dezyrí using the updated årdrakin species design I’ve been working on. The female version of that new design hasn’t been started yet, but Sakky’s commission is chibi style so the proportions for a female versus a male aren’t as important. It came out great! Here is her adorable work:
