My First Guest Post: The Worldbuilding Of The Four Realms

newsalisburySomeone recently told me that New Salisbury was ‘a bit like Chester’ in the way it put modern shops into old buildings. They’re not far off. I’ve been to Chester but it wasn’t the inspiration for the fictional city. However, over at The Civilian Reader today I’ve done a Guest Post on “The Worldbuilding of The Four Realms”.
