With my main book, Lake Merrin on hiatus, I wanted to create my YA concept into a continuing short story series, my first two are out, Kayla: Genius, which has five 5 star reviews. Also a recent release Briana: Knight, part two of FableLands, in which we delve more into the mystery of Arcs and the FableLands. With part three, Ciro: Founder written as well with a release around the 25th of July. I started a new series based on my main book of the novelisation of Favinonia.
Last night I began to explore stories that in my creative mind, this one, in particular, is Rising of the Green, which in my books is one of the aspects of the Trinity, the state religion of Favinonia. A funny story from Supanova I was dressed up as a Paladin of the Orange (another aspect of the Trinity), and I was talking to a fellow boother about my costume. He asked ‘What are you wearing?’
I replied, ‘Oh, I’m in the garb of a Priest of the Orange aspect.’
‘Orange aspect? Is that religion, how long has it been around?’ He asked
At this point I went into creative mode, it is strange when you have created something in your mind, and you explain it as a real concept.
‘Well, the Orange aspect is a part of the whole, The Trinity. Orange represents Protection, Retribution and Passion. It started about 300 years ago, but it was a cult, to begin with..’
I’m not going to go blow for blow in that conversation, but in the end, he thought I was a priest of the Orange. I had to say ‘I am in a costume that is a fake religion in my fantasy world.’
At least one thing, my creation felt real to this guy, so win.
But back to the story that I started writing last night.
‘Rise of the Green’ is about Mara, the first Saint of the Trinity. She is the representing the truth of the aspect of the Green. Which is the Aspect of Agriculture and Life/Death; Toilers of the ground and healers of the sick. Saint Mela the Plague-ender, Life-giver and First-Saint; people who follow this aspect give thanks to the first saint for bringing the Trinity to Favinonia.
This story is about when she became the first saint and the rise of the second, her husband Jara of the Hammer (which will be the second story). I have always wanted to write about her, but I thought it was just going to be some small piece in a forgotten blog, but I can’t do that to Mother-Sister Mara!
So after ‘Rising of the Green: The Trinity’ will be the ‘Mission of The Orange: Trinity’ and finally ‘The Logic of the Blue: The Trinity’. Keep an eye out for these first three of my brand new series, Tales from Favinonia.
