Author Bio For Mark J Diez:

Mark J Diez began writing fiction in 1995, starting with the Tales of Malartú fantasy series of short stories and gamebooks. After several years focusing on fantasy adventure writing for video and board game worlds he migrated to action adventure and the Hannover series.

His debut novel, The Hannover Game, is an innovative break from the usual indie author approaches. Drawing on his experience creating fantasy worlds, Diez has wrapped the novel in a lively online community and website. Readers are able to join one of the Hannover world's teams, complete puzzles, solve challenges and shift the Balance of Power in their favour.

With that project complete he returns to his roots, writing exclusive content on the Channillo platform to reignite the adventures in the world of Malartú. As part of that, readers can enjoy regular updates to the ongoing Malartú series but also as part of the Channillo subscription get access to the lore, history, maps character backgrounds and other details of the world. 

As a special challenge, the series contains snippets of the Neron Cipher that over the chapters users can analyse to work out the entire cipher and reveal the messages that have been shared!

Notes:

Series Schedule

Please note that the series include the Novel and Lore. Due to life getting in the way the publishing schedule has move out to Monthly. Apologies for this, as soon as life gets back out of the way I'll return to to publishing every other week.

About the World

The world of Malartú is a rich fantasy world with landmasses, lords, peoples, gods, history, ancient artefacts and more. In the Rise of Al'daer we are already in the 85th year of the 2nd era, marked by the reign of Galrach II on the strategically important island of the Sháelarn.

Readers join the story as the world slips back into the chaos it had left behind in the reign of Galrach I or Galrach the Consoler as he had become known after the great Land War.

When reading the Rise of Al'daer the following map may be of interest.

Map of Shaelarn

The map depicts the island as it was when Al'daer arrived and how Lord Galrach II had undertaken no development of his lands.

 

 

Important! some of the content, such as adding images and hidden easter-eggs is 'experimental' and so might not be as correct/working as hoped, either because of the author or the platform. In the spirit of creativity and adventure I'll try it out anyway, but expect changes - please check the Discussion link ! 

References:

* Dates are written as E2D85 - this refers to the Era + Day, so E2D85 is the 2nd Era on the 85th day

* When reading names and places with accents, emphasis is placed on the accented letter to make that letter stronger. This is just like in Spanish. For example Néron would be said more like NEron. Sháelarn is less like Shee-larn and more like ShA-larn with a long aaa sound.
