A Glimpse of the Night Eater



Early Concept in Progress of the Night Eater

I've been quietly tidying up loose ends up on my series. Who knew the characters would skip off the pages of my outline to seek adventures of their own? Okay, okay. Apparently I'm awful at keeping clear of distractions (*I'm looking at you, Poshmark!*) and ended up writing various scenarios for upcoming chapters.

Chronicles of Zaloria: Book Two will debut very soon. I'm aiming for a release in April or May 2019. In fact, I'm already drawing up various book cover concepts. The problem with being a working student is not having the means to hire a professional book cover artist. One day I will eagerly hire someone to re-brand my series.

Until then, readers are stuck with me. Honestly, that's not so bad. Maybe...




So who is she? Well, I can't exactly go into detail without spoiling a great deal of matters. What I can say is that the Night Eater plays an important part through-out the story. From the first novel we know that she's not exactly a good person and causes a great war to erupt across all of Zaloria.

Now I'm going to shift your attention to the photo-manipulation or photo composite. This is an early concept as the Night Eater is inspired from various Mexican Folktales and mythology. She's quite old and far more sinister.

She has to be cold and cruel. I did mention the 'not so good of a person' part! For now, I'm content at how she appears though I will re-paint her sugar-skull makeup with more detail. Most likely I'll also add a darker magic within her hands and an amulet around her neckline.


Oops, I've rambled long enough. Time to go back to writing. Deadlines are a killer sometimes.

Happy Reading,
Wendy May

Fantasy & Magic Love Story

Chronicles of Zaloria is a novel series based on a Fantasy & Magic love story with Humanoid Wolves. The Varul society is based on a warrior's life with a sole king that rules over the entire realm. A mystical land where mortals are not allowed to set foot. This story spans the lives of the royal family with themes of life & death, friendship & love, and learning to accept that it's okay to be yourself.


Meet Acalia Itzchel. A young woman that seeks to find her place among her own clansmen. Despite her royal title of  'princess' she is seemingly blessed(or in her POV - cursed) with the appearance of a she-wolf. In Zaloria, the males appear like humanoid wolves while all the female Varul very much seem like humans. However, Acalia has wolf ears, tail, claws and fangs like the male warriors.

There's only one other that shares similar attributes as her and that's Acalia's grandmother. A former legendary heroine that is ostracized by all the clans.
