I gotta give it to ya...I've done some writing/concept design myself and it's difficult refining everything. From the plot to the characters to the overall look and feel of a project. It helps to be around other great creative minds...fuel for the fire. Right on, Micah, right on.
That is great to hear! I am fascinated by all cultures, and am combining various cultural characteristics in this book. It's based in a fantasy world, but not high fantasy with dragons and stuff, it's fantasy just because I wanted the freedom to draw influence from whatever interesting cultures that I felt like. A lot of it is influenced by Southeast Asian and North and South American Native cultures. There is also going to be some French and European aspects to the culture, so its a bit of a mishmash. Anyway, thank you for your comment, and I'm really happy you like what you see so far!
