ABOUT USShona Kinsella
Shona is the author of epic fantasy Ashael Rising (Unbound, 2017) and dark Scottish fantasy, Petra McDonald and the Queen of the Fae (Fox Spirit, 2018). She is also joint editor of the British Fantasy Society's fiction publication BFS Horizons. Shona lives on the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond with her husband and three children. When she's not writing or wrangling children she can usually be found with her nose in a book. She is very excited to be collaborating with Joe on this story and hopes you'll join them for the journey.
Joe is a freelance illustrator that has spent most of his career working in the game industry including clients such as Wizards of the Coast, Cryptozoic Studios and Supergenius Studios. His personal work shows a love for textures, the dark and melancholy. Joe has developed an addiction to reading more books than is healthy and is really looking forward to helping to craft and tell this story. He wants the work on Miranya's Oath to have emotional content and look beautiful. If Joe has to choose between cool and beautiful in his art, he will choose beautiful every time.
Together we can tell this fantasy story of epic struggle! Join us as we construct this tale and world through smaller stories of joy, tragedy,betrayal, lust, and greed. Much of this mixed together where no victories are without cost and no loss without hope. The good will do evil and the evil will hope for the good. It's going to be beautiful and we hope you want to be a part of it.

WHY PATREON?This is going to be an epic story and that means it takes a significant amount of time to craft both the art and the writing. Neither of us are independently wealthy so working on this story in our spare time means it would take an extremely long time to be released. We believe that Patreon could help us complete our story much faster.
Our Patreon is not meant to be a pay wall but there are some exclusives. Patrons' early access to the process gives them a unique opportunity to comment as things develop and help shape the story. There are also opportunities to receive some unique writing or critique from Shona. If you're a fan of Joe's artwork then you can receive special discounts and opportunities to acquire his originals or limited edition works.
