A Unique Illustrated Fantasy Novel to Kickstart – Defender of Llyans

April 20 18:59 2021
Now Seeking Community Support via Kickstarter Campaign for Brian C Hailes’ New Passion project, ‘Defender of Llyans’, to be Released by Draw It With Me and Epic Edge Publishing!

We’d like to introduce Brian C Hailes‘ latest book title, Defender of Llyans, a roughly 400 page illustrated novel he began brainstorming and developing nearly two decades ago while filling an internship in New York City at the Society of Illustrators. Hailes only seriously began writing, illustrating and developing this current version about six years ago, and he has been re-working and refining it ever since (among many other projects). It’s a new original illustrated fantasy novel that takes place in a vibrant world with colorful characters that his writers group has come to adore.

A short synopsis of the story: On the island continent of La’Suna, the fates of three fantasy races intertwine in a struggle for dominion. One outlander could be the key to save them all.

Roan, a Verum wanderer, allied with Karaya, the Mican queen, together must find a way to protect their peoples from obliteration, as Amrog, the brutal Gorbane chief, and his vengeful multitude will stop at nothing to overthrow the Mican monarchy, and re-unite their bloodlines forever. Despite prejudice and distrust between the races, can a royal and an outcast defend their people against the growing threat?”

Brian C Hailes is an award-winning American artist and writer with more than 50 publications and several Amazon bestsellers over the last decade. Defender of Llyans: An Illustrated Fantasy Novel is his brand new novel project, and he is raising funds and support for the publication and distribution of this illustrated standalone fantasy novel by recently launching a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.

Hailes and his team hope you will join them in bringing this project to life on the Kickstarter page they just launched, which has already received a huge response from backers!
