SPOTLIGHT ON: Aaron Drown. (Pen name is A. Christopher Drown.)
How did you get involved in the upcoming Imaginarium convention?
Aside from being a Seventh Star Press author, I’ve been happy to call Stephen Zimmer a friend for a few years now.
What is your latest release and what genre is it?
“A Mage of None Magic: The Heart of the Sisters, Book One.” It’s a fantasy novel.
Quick description of it.
Myth tells that magic came to be when evil gods shattered the fabled gem known as the Heart of the Sisters. The same tale speaks of the Heart being healed one day, unleashing a power that will bring the end of humankind.
While traveling to begin his magical studies, young apprentice Niel finds himself suddenly at the center of the Heart’s terrifying legend. Caught in a whirlwind of events that fractures the foundation of everything he’s believed, Niel learns his role in the world may be far more important than he ever could have imagined—or ever would have wished.
A Mage of None Magic begins an extraordinary adventure into a perilous land where autocratic magicians manipulate an idle aristocracy, where common academia struggles for acceptance, and where after ages of disregard myth and legend refuse to be ignored any longer.
Something unique about it.
