Mikawayama Preview

This year, my story for National Novel Writing Month is a historical fiction set in Heian-era Japan.  My main character is a young lady who lives in a high-up mountain village on the island of Shikoku.  It has been an interesting couple of weeks already, researching various yokai, looking up various specifics of Heian life, and building a balanced character. I have also been sprinkling in Japanese onomatopeia and terms, and some Japanese-style poetry.  Happy reading.  If you are a fellow NaNo writer, happy writing!

Hear the mountain’s call,

Walk along the rocky path.

forested and cold,

even as the summer sun shines,

and not a cloud can be seen.


About Legends of Lorata

Eleanor Willow is the author of the high fantasy series Legends of Lorata, which takes place on a medieval-style world filled with elves, dragons and faeries. There is also a fourth race, one that is rare and magical: the angelic Starr. Lorata is a planet where four gods are known: good, evil, elemental and celestial-- and there are plenty of legends about them all! One of the most important ones is the prophecy of Jenh's champion, Loracaz, who is promised to return to the land whenever evil threatens to take hold. There are currently for books planned. The first one is completed and currently being edited. Any news I have on about publishing will be shared as it comes in!
