Mapping a world
I've been working on the nitty-gritty details in between drafts, and taking the time to get a map together with some of the areas of interest.
This is Kaiserreich, a state on the eastern coast of North America. Its capital is Göttinesche, which falls on the A-Rail (red). The large port cities connected by rail and aeroport, are noted by the white circle enclosures. Off to the right, there's Nearly Island, which was a stopping point happened upon chance by the Saxons and settled as a shipping port/way station.
Before you ask, yes there are hundreds of smaller cities and towns, but I most likely won't get to those since they aren't essential to the plot.
Ash Litton is a writer and lover of sci-fi, fantasy, and all things fictional. She is the author of Thoroughbred, Evening Hallow, Comeuppance, and Cabover Cabaret, and works on other Appalachian Dream Tales between her ongoing novel projects. She's also written No Diet, No Surgery, No Sweat, an ebook chronicling her weight-loss journey.
When she's not writing, she's drawing, and when she's not doing either of those, she's dreaming up new projects to work on. Born and raised in rural West Virginia, Ash has always wondered what things lay hidden in the hills around her. She attended West Virginia University, where she studied the English language before returning home to her family in rural West Virginia.
