The Legacy of Androva Series

Aesthetic for Beyond Androva: Book Three ✨

“The memory has as many moods as the temper, and shifts its scenery like a diorama.”

― George Eliot

This quote sums up the protagonist of my latest book in more ways than one! It’s a challenge to write a character whose perception of the world and himself shifts back and forth, especially when the setting is entirely fictional.

An imaginary world has few limitations when you’re making up the story as you go along. In one sense, unlimited options are great because you never run out of things to write about. However, the story still needs to hang together in terms of its mood, tone, and visual imagery. That’s when it helps to have an aesthetic. And, let’s be honest, they are a lot of fun to make!

I recently passed the halfway point of Lost in Magic, my current work in progress, and it feels like a good time to bring together some of the pictures I’ve used as inspiration for Kellan’s story. The result, as you can see, includes plenty of Xytovian purple alongside magical remedies, a mysterious box, a secret message, a portal, and a hint of romance. Part of the story takes place during the events of Engraved in Magic, with some extra insight into what was happening to Kellan while Art was discovering his Spell Binder skills. I dont know how Lost in Magic is going to end yet, but Kellan is up against a new villain who is proving unexpectedly difficult to pin down.

I hope you enjoy the pictures, and thank you very much for visiting my blog today πŸ’œ.
