I’m back with another special announcement so soon! I know I’ve only just unveiled my new gaslamp fantasy, The Thirteenth Hour, but to help you prepare to enter this massive new world, I’ve created a tourist guide to introduce you to the city of Chime and the twelve domains of the gods!

Part-prequel novella to The Thirteenth Hour, and part-world building compendium, The Traveler’s Handbook to Chime and Beyond will teach you everything you ever wanted to know (and didn’t!) about the world of The Cruel Gods series. This Handbook expands on the world building on the series and also covers the twelve domains and mortal races as a reference guide. It’s packed full of humour and images, as well as tips on how to navigate a fantasy world as you’d expect from a tourist guide!

You’ll also find diary snippets from the main character of The Thirteenth Hour set before the events of the story, and cameos of other characters too. This means the Handbook can be read before, during, or after The Thirteenth Hour without any major spoilers!

Welcome to Chime, the steam-powered magical city ruled by almighty gods! Whether you’re new to Chime or a regular visitor, this edition of the much beloved Handbook is your guide to our illustrious city, a city built from brick and brass. Home to mortals from across the twelve domains, Chime is full of opportunity for those seeking a new life away from the domains of the gods. But entering Chime can be daunting for the wary tourist unused to engaging in polite society! And if you’ve never met a mortal with the body of a fish or a lion, then how would you address them?

Don’t fear! The Traveler’s Handbook to Chime and Beyond will teach you everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Chime and the mortals of the twelve domains, including queueing etiquette, how to board the trams and elevators, how to engage in small talk, the best places to eat and rest, and of course, where to pray and worship your god while you’re away!

And that’s not all! This Handbook will also teach you how to make the crossing into the domains of the gods and keep your mortal head intact!

Don’t delay! Grab your copy of the Handbook today! No sane mortal of Chime would leave their home without it!
