When I first started writing the series I created a map merely as a means of keeping straight in my head where everything was, and as a creative tool to allow me to envision obsticals that my characters would need to deal with.
As I wrote I added places and land features, but after a certain point I no longer needed the map as the world was fairly well formed in my head. This allowed the map to become a bit dated as it left out the locations of some popular sites like Drondil Fields, Hintindar and such.
I’ve learned that the maps in some of the eBook versions of my series have been fuzzy or otherwise hard to read. Still not sure how that happened. Many have found the maps on my website, but I wondered how many haven’t. As such and as the last book is on it’s way, I thought it might be good to offer a new improved glimpse of the world.
Here then is the most accurate map of the world of Elan to date.
Below is a simplified map showing the poltical divisions. The colored areas show the four nations of Apeladorn, the blue outlined divisions in Avryn indicate the eight kingdoms that comprise it.
I have learned that some readers never look at the map, others rely on it, and a few had no idea there was one. Regardless of which you might be, I hope this helps illuminate the world a little better for you.
