Thank you for your interest in becoming a Patron!

I am Carin Marais, a South African fantasy author. My current big project is The Ruon Chronicles – an epic fantasy that will span multiple short stories and novels.

So… what do you get when you make a pledge?
When you make a pledge, you will get a short story every other month, as well as an in-depth look behind the scenes of what goes into writing epic fantasy and creating a secondary world. This includes worldbuilding notes, sketches, maps, and more. You can even get a cameo role in one of the stories!

Your awesome patronage will go towards not only freeing up more time to write but also paying for professional artwork and the like!

So… What're The Ruon Chronicles about?

In the first age of Airtha-Eyrassa, before the First Sundering, the great Knowledge Stone was created. The Airus could impress knowledge on the stone and tell of the history of the world before the Betrayers came into being. But, before they could be overcome, the Keepers of the Stone was attacked and almost all were slain.
Now broken, the pieces of the Knowledge Stone scattered and lost.
So began the long search for the lost Knowledge Stones by the Seekers of Knowledge.

An age later, after the Second Sundering, a bloody war erupted and covered the lands of Airtha-Eyrassa. Called the Ruon Wars, the enemy was led by the Vidolf Elame; a Ruon turned against her own kind to follow the Betrayers. At last Elame was captured and imprisoned with her followers on an island.
When the pillars of Elame’s prison fall and those within are set free, Selena Tellah, a young Ruon, along with others of her kind and Seekers, must find a way to recreate the Ruon charms and find the lost Knowledge Stones in order to fight the dark forces amassing against them.
Time is running out as the enemy draws closer to setting free forces that can once again tear Airtha-Eyrassa apart and thereby set in motion the Final Sundering that will lead all to ruin.
