Xhosa | Fantasy Writer | Journeyman Bee
A young writer, fighting tooth and nail to become a good writer. Loves fantasy, food, and his mum (as well as the Oxford comma). Dabbles in parentheses and somehow became a triple-featured author.
If you're looking for a read, feel free to try:
NOMVULA: A pacifist African Queen must risk life and land to prevent a war she cannot hope to win. A daily serial set in a Xhosa-inspired realm, think Jane Austen meets Black Panther.
THE THREE DEATHS OF BRUNHILDE: A legendary warrior must rescue her infant granddaughter from a rogue prince before the godaxe he wields kills her. Featured. Wattys Shortlist 2018.
SIGGI: A warrior-scholar overlooked for a prophecy attempts to steal an artefact of destiny to discredit the gods and their judgement. Featured. Grand Winner of the inaugural 'Open Novella Contest'.
I'm also creating an African neo-mythology from scratch, featuring tales such as:
THE HEART OF THE EARTHAPPLE: In her final hours, a god-queen turns her grief into the basis of commerce.
EDEN IS A MATERNITY WARD: The tale of how the Prince of Spring earned his divine name.
ARES LOVED: A young woman must decide between killing her lover now or allowing her magic to slowly drive them both to madness.
I adore comments and I'll always thank a vote.
If you'd like to buy me a coffee, I show my gratitude by trying to dislike the same people you do. http://ko-fi.com/milomaia
