Apocryphal
By Rowan Rook

Series Description:

[Update Schedule: New chapters will be posted on the 1st of each month.]

When the magical island kingdom of Magdellyn defaulted on its deal with entities called the Others, even its memory was erased from the Earth. Now trapped in its own reality, its people slowly fall to the same curse, becoming something between human and Other—becoming Apocrypha.

Izette, a self-declared simple girl, tries to hide her Apocryphal status and live as normally as her world allows, even as the beginnings of war brew between humans and her kind. When a haunted childhood friend wanders back into her life, however, she finds herself drawn into battle—not only against the people who fear the Apocrypha, but against a force far more ancient and deadly.

Apocryphal is an epic-length LGBTQIA+ paranormal fantasy novel about claiming your place in a world that fears you.

Category/Genre(s): Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance, Young Adult
Updated: Monthly

Author Bio For Rowan Rook:

 “I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions.”
― James Michener

Rowan is an agender, asexual, and aromantic speculative fiction author and freelance editor. As a child, they dreamily dictated stories to adults and sat at their family's old typewriter, pounding at the keys to enjoy the sensation of them beneath their fingers. They've never lost that sense of wonder. Rowan aims to craft stories that evoke ideas, create experiences, and leave behind lingering emotions.

Aside from writing, they find joy in game design, heavy music, fiction podcasts, technology, and animals. They currently room with three cats and a collie dog, who keep them company during their daily battles with the blank page. As a night person, the majority of their novels emerge under moonlight. They write from a big, lakeside house on a rural island while dreaming of the city.
