WELCOME, Welcome, welcome!
If this is your first time here, I'd like to take a moment to prep your mind.
First off--this entire interactive site is based on a published fantasy series, called Chronicles of a Hero, by Jaime Buckley. It started as bedtime tales for his kids, grew into comic books, then into published novels, games, and more.
Everything you see and experience here IS CONNECTED TO THAT WORLD.
(That might sound odd--but you'll thank me for it later, I promise. )
TRANSLATION: The moment you leave this page, you'll be exposed to my life's work.All I ask is you leave the coffee machine in the break room alone. I need all the stimulants I can get my hands on to do this job. (Oh, and don't touch the greying foam cup in the fridge marked 'special'...just FYI.) Before you get started, I'm going to suggest a few things you'll want to consider--to provide you with the best experience possible.
Best Devices To Use When Viewing This SiteI wish you had gnome devices to use, but you just aren't that lucky. It SHOULD go without saying that if you want the very best experience, you need a bigger screen--so consider using your desktop or tablet. But I will say that a semi-smartphone is the best devices to use when you're reading books/short stories. I'm building this site using the mantra 'go BIG or go HOME', and you just can't get the FULL experience with a small screen, no matter what line of BS Apple spews out (and Jaime's a Mac person).
START THE ADVENTURE!It seems almost silly to try and enjoy this world if you don't know the story behind it. If you want to laugh, gasp, cheer, duck your head (seriously--a reader did that) or maybe even have a good cry, start with Jaime's first book in the series: PRELUDE TO A HERO. It'll help you understand why I love...my...job.
There's three ways to get Prelude to a Hero from your preferred vendor.• Get a PAPER COPY from AMAZON
• Get a DIGITAL COPY from OTHER GLOBAL SOURCES
• Or read it right from this website!
Consider Supporting My EffortsIf you enjoy my work, consider supporting my long hours, late nights, and running for my life on Tuesday's, Friday's, and meeting with the Inner Sanctum every third Saturday (long story), by buying me a drink or a meal once a month. The LESS I have to worry about hunger pains, the FASTER this grows!! Think of becoming a patron as a passport to happiness, adventure, and havin' a (slim) chance of glancing in my notebook when I'm not looking. You can buy me a coffee for $3 a month and get access to hidden and exclusive content (access to the newest books, short stories, and interviews). In FACT--we've put up ALL of Jaime's published works for supporters, which means you'll have access to a slew of books, just for starters!!! 720 HOURS OF ACCESS A MONTH! Not too shabby for just $3. THINK ABOUT IT--for the cost of a soiled Vallen's loincloth (and who would WANT that), you could have your fiction-addiction satisfied every month!
Tell A Friend!This is VERY important. I do not advertise.
I do not entice with clickbait.
I reveal this magical world the best I can and rely on YOU to spread the news. The way people find out about this world is by YOU saying something...sooooo...SAY something. Share this on that in-yer-FACEBOOK thingy, the twit-network, what's it....oh, TWITTER, INSTAGRAMification, or my favorite--make a YOUTUBE video about us and spread it around! That's about it. At the very least, make sure you FOLLOW this world.
If you don't have a Worldanvil account, that's NOT A PROBLEM, an account is completely FREE. Oh...and one more thing: If you're one of those lazy-as-a-politician or have-to-have-everything-done-for-you types, this adventure isn't for you. Seriously. There are secrets and hidden delights in the folds of this site, which I've created on purpose. For fun. One's I have no intention of pointing out or explaining how they work. ....because that's half the fun of the adventure, cupcake.
