Welcome! I’m W.R. Gingell, and I’ll be your host today! With me are nine other authors (it’s okay, I didn’t kidnap them; they’re with me in spirit—no, wait, now it sounds like they’re dead).
Let me start again. With me are nine other authors; together, we’re the collective behind the noblebright boxed set, Luminous, which was put together by C. J. Brightley and published by Spring Song Press.
What is noblebright? I’m glad you asked! (What’s that? You didn’t ask? I’m going to tell you anyway…) Noblebright fantasy, as defined by the amazing C. J. Brightley, is fantasy set apart by a sense of hope. Noblebright fantasy includes at least one character who, although flawed, still deliberately pursues goodness. And that goodness has the power to make a difference. In a noblebright story, even villains are not without hope. Their redemption isn’t guaranteed, of course, but it is a possibility.
Sound like your thing? We’ve got you covered! Luminous is a collection of 10 different books, each with a noblebright theme to them; from fairy kings to underground kingdoms, from magic school tales to rewritten fairytales. And over a period of three weeks, we’re celebrating the release of Luminous with a giveaway and author interviews where you can get to know the authors.
You can follow our schedule below; it will be updated as each post goes live.
