I will finally have my proof. Proof that I actually completed this daunting epic tale. Proof that my efforts have been worth the pain. And, proof that Beck, Kiernan, Rogan and Airron truly exist. I would hate to go back to a world where the Island of Massa was still a figment of my imagination instead of fleshed out and documented for the world to get to know and enjoy. Fantasy author Greg Hamerton says it best on his website http://greghamerton.com/greg/about/ when asked, why fantasy? "Because there's nothing like it! To feel the world dissolve around you and to see a new world appear, raised from your imagination, well that’s just the beginning. To read great fantasy is to enter a world of hidden secrets, of great beauty, mystery and danger. We become involved in a struggle on a grand scale. Fantasy gives us the gift of seeing, being able to experience a world beyond our own develops a powerful imagination."
Well said, Mr. Hamerton.
The last proof for me comes from you...the readers. Proof that I did the Island of Massa and her tale justice. On September 30, I will know for sure.
