About The Flanston
Biography:
Lifelong lover of fantasy. I used to work as a sculptor in the hobby games industry making models for RPG and tabletop games. I now work as a writer and am currently working on a fantasy book called Battle Mage. My first (self-published book) was released a couple of years ago; a psychological thriller called First and Only.

Working on the map for my world and thought this seemed like the place to make sure I did it right :)

Evolution of A fantasy Map Part I

by The Flanston on 07-04-2014 at 09:24 AM
Hi all
Just thought I'd let you know that I have just written a new blog post about the development of the map for Battle Mage, my forthcoming fantasy book. You can find the post here...

Hope you like it and please feel free to leave any comments.

Sorry I've been away for so long but so much to do and so few bain cells to do it with!

Cheers

The Flanston
