About this project

The Galadahnia Web Project: Phase One
The Galadahnia is an eco-fantasy trilogy consisting of the books Darnan, Rall Ulkind, and (i)The World.
By donating to The Galadahnia Web Project, you will help me create a web site that will publish a new chapter each week. The website will be free and open to the public. Each chapter of the story will have an illustration, audio download, and PDF download for mobile readers.

The first novel, Darnan, is ready for serialization.

Darnan is the main character in my eponymous 90,000 word eco-fantasy. As a single seed can become a forest, the smallest of us can save the world. Darnan, a young “unmade” dwarf, will discover this powerful fact when his wish for a life in the Upworld—away from his confining dwarven culture—comes true. During his journey to the elves of Eth-Eryel he confronts self-doubt about the blossoming power within him. Through his growing love for the companions that fight and die for him, and through his confusion and fascination with the Greenworld, his passage to Eth-Eryel becomes a profoundly emotional and transformative trial. It’s his character that drives this novel as he explores the power and magic that lives within and around him.

The second book will follow the antagonist, Rall Ulkind, as he discovers that his complex inner life and desires are at odds with his master’s plans.

The third book, The World, will weave characters together from both sides of the conflict as they are driven toward the final climax.

I hope that The Galadahnia can reach and inspire those who feel awash in our modern world's current excesses—show us how a breath and how slowing a moment to view the world can help us see the wonder and magic within all of us.
