Blog Tour Day 2: Mammon - Creating a fantasy world
Hello again and welcome back! It's Day 2 of the Mammon book blog tour and just in case you've missed the Day 1 post, you can check out the Ivan character interview here and also be sure to read and/or comment on my Mammon book review here and the author interview that is posted here.
For today's post, J.B. Thomas has kindly gave me an insight into creating a fantasy world - one about her very awesome and interesting Mammon world. So here's what the author herself has to say:
Creating a Fantasy World
One of the magical things about fantasy fiction is the opportunity to build worlds. In Mammon, I wanted to create a world that was based on the real, but one that had hints of the supernatural poking through.
Border City is a critical part of the story and the setting itself tells the story of a great divide between rich and poor. The City is an oasis that one reaches after traversing the long, interminable Red Desert. The Wasteland, in the north, is a dead zone pillaged by excessive mining, and now, abandoned. Within the mesmerizing glow of the neon lights of the entertainment district, demons rule, trading in the pleasures of the night.
This is Mammon's city. It is through his influence that things have become this way. And let me tell you - they're about to get much worse.
