Notes and Information Regarding 'SHADOWED'
Background information on SHADOWED: This novel came in the form of a broken dream one night. For the next few months, I had several other dreams that I incorporated into the story. In my dreams, and in my mind, none of the characters resemble anyone I know from real life.
The Time Period: The story is set in the 1900s of an alternate England, where magic has always been a part of life, albeit hidden. Some accurate historical information is presented in the story. I used old weather documents, some old newspaper articles, and small research attempts at making some things factual. However, there is a great deal that is not, of course, true. I tried to stay as close to the time period as possible.
The POV (Point of View): The writings are written in first person from the point of view of the magician's shadowling, who has moments of insanity. Please keep this in mind when reading. And as most first person narratives go, there are many things that happen behind the scenes or things that the main character does not know that may impact the story.
Colors in the World of SHADOWED: Colors actually play a huge key in the narrative as the main character descends into insanity. Colors in SHADOWED are based on a psychological take of the color wheel. Here is a good reference: "http://empoweringthematuremind.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/emotion_wheel.jpg"
Intercourse and Relationships: This novel is not pornography, nor descriptive in terms of sex, but rather a word or sentence; however, promiscuity and homosexuality are present at times. You have been warned.
Violence, Gore, and Other Disturbing Imagery: As a dark tale, violence, tragedy and pain are core elements of the story.
