In my last post I shared with you about how The Maiden Ship came to be, today I’d like to share my first painting inspired from this new novel, and also give you a peek at the synopsis. I hope you enjoy! Remember to follow along on Instagram or Facebook for more daily posts. 🙂
Dain Alloway was only eight years old when he began a new life, with his father, aboard The Maiden. Nine years later the aristocratic city-boy, turned merchant sailor, feels like he lives with one foot on land and one foot in the sea. Life sails smoothly by until the night he wakes to find a mysterious woman in his cabin. She reveals that not everything is what it seems, and the events that unfold after her appearance go beyond all natural law. Now, hunted by empty-faced demons, Dain finds himself thrown into a web of intrigue orchestrated by gods he’s never even heard of. As the young sailor confronts the oncoming crisis, he discovers powerful gifts buried deep within. Whether or not these new talents will hearken or deter victory remains to be seen, but, either way, Dain is ready to risk it all for the salvation and freedom of those he loves.

We are excited to announce that the full fledged YA novels version of Charting Stars will be set for an October 1st 2019 release date! Excited to share this new version with you!
Charting Stars Synopsis:
Talia Benson would consider herself fairly ordinary. Anyone would. Diligent student, only child to a single mother, protector of three cats; nothing special ever seemed to happen to her. Life’s consistent rhythm brightened only by Talia’s obsession with the stars and her love for art, a single evening in front of a blank canvas becomes the adventure she never dreamed she wanted. Talia finds herself lost and alone in a world completely unlike her own, in a land where magic thrives, wars are born then die at the wave of a hand, and strange creatures decide the fate of those who live among the Nine Realms. The guardians of this foreign world have felt a great shift in the heavens. Something has changed. A darkness is coming. A girl thrown between worlds could be the key to saving them all.
