Two Ways to Experience the Archives

Now that I have a few posts under my belt (just a few), I thought I’d clarify a few things that may not have been so obvious to many readers. 
The purpose of the blog is to give a little supplemental information to my novel, The Magi.  It’s the back story behind the book.  However, if you haven’t read it, some of the jargon might be a little confusing unless you really work to do some research.  So there are two ways to approach the blog:
1.       If you have read the book, enjoy the archives.  As the days go by, some of the archives will begin to connect directly with the book.  Some will just give some of the history and back story of the Magi.  You’ll also see some archives come up in future books.

2.       If you haven’t read the book (which at this point is the majority of you), you can approach the archives as a story of a people you will meet if you (hopefully) read the book.  And when you take the journey with Elijah to Savenridge, you’ll know more than the casual reader.  Either way, the blog is meant to build the world of the Magi.
In order to make some of the jargon clearer for those of you who haven’t read the book, I will begin a posting series called “Profiling the Magi”.  Here I will give small amounts of information on the characters, places, and names that will come up on the blog.  Some of the information may give away the experience of being introduced to these people and places in the actual book, so if you plan on reading it at some point and you don’t want this information yet, you may want to steer clear of those posts.  I’ll put in a spoiler alert in case you fall into that category. 
Thanks again for all the support.
