A couple people have commented on the map I have for my new novel, which is mentioned in the self-promotion zone. The main page of the website I used is http://donjon.bin.sh/. This site allows you to get ideas for plots, characters, goals and several other things you may want in your story.
The map maker is at http://donjon.bin.sh/world It is a wonderful tool and the map you crate can be saved to your computer and opened in Photoshop to modify it as you like. Here is a small sample of my map, hope people can make use of this.

Small Press & Self-Published / New Novel Guilds of Galyndor
« on: July 18, 2014, 03:32:07 PM »
My name is K.S. Crooks and I have written a novel called Guilds of Galyndor that will be released towards the end of the summer. It started out as something for myself and family but I have decided to take the chance and release it upon the world. If this is a bad idea then some version of myself will need to travel back in time to stop me from writing the book, which would be a whole other adventure. Here is the brief summary of the book.

In Guilds of Galyndor, Guild members have the exceptional ability to harness many powerful forces that exist in the world. There are four Guild disciplines, each different in their abilities; nevertheless the same in their intentions: Guild Masters serve as peacekeepers, protectors of the land, even as warriors when the need arises.
