I have found more news about STAR OF DELTORA, specifically about the first book in the series, SHADOWS OF THE MASTER. The book is set to be released in August of 2015. Yes, this year! :D I found this page scholastic.co.nz/trade/pdf/qui… which includes an official blurb for the book, which goes:

Britta of Del wants nothing less than to be the new Apprentice Trader of the Rosalyn fleet. Family and friends and even the terrible secret of her parentage will not stop her. But how can she succeed when her true identity must surely be guessed by Trader Mab, who knew her father, and the crew of the Star of Deltora? Relying on no more than her wits and the kind acts of friends she makes along the way, Britta is drawn closer and closer to her terrible destiny.

The book will cost $12.00 as an introductory price.



We at Deltora Quest Wiki has some great news! We have found out that Emily Rodda and veteran 
Deltora illustrator Marc McBride will be at a writers festival, showcasing their new book seires, STAR OF DELTORA. The first book is called Shadows of the Master.

Here’s the blurb: Britta has always wanted to be a trader like her father, sailing the nine seas and bringing precious cargo home to Del harbour. Her dreams seemed safe until her fathers quest to find the fabled Staff of Tier ended in blood and horror. Now his shamed family is in hiding, and his ship, the Star of Deltora, belongs to the powerful Rosalyn fleet. But Britta’s ambition burns as fiercely as ever.When she suddenly gets the chance to win back her future she knows she has to take it whatever the cost. She has no idea that shadows from a distant, haunted isle are watching her every move.

Interesting about Rosalyn, and the shadows of an isle… We checked a book catalog, turns out the second book might possibly be called Two Moons. And a possible name for the first was City of Shadows. Now, let's get our sources down.

Exhibit A: www.scholastic.com.au/schools/…

It is pretty much an announcement of the new books, as well as a contest for schools in Australia and a chance to win the class copies of the first book of Star of Deltora, as well as the chance to get Emily Rodda and Marc McBride to visit your school. Marc McBride will also create an exclusive piece of artwork for the students to keep.

Exhibit B, a mini review it looks like: www.scholastic.com.au/schools/…

Other information that we have is that Marc McBride painted all the illustrations this time digitally. While it is not exactly the same as acryllic paint, which works really well for Deltora due to its atmosphere and its fantastic look for creatures and monsters, it is much easier for him to make changes and not have to start over on a new canvas if something goes wrong. The cover displays a bit of a different, more realistic style as well, but still have McBride's finger prints all over it :)

One of our admins, Belt-of-Detora, found out all this information for us by the way. We all owe him one :D Now, everyone, aboard the hype train!

The previous blurb is still accurate, but this is more official, coming from Scholastic. The book will cost $12.00 as an introductory price.

For most things Deltora and all the latest news, visit deltoraquest.wikia.com/ Help our wiki and fan community grow.

Oh, I'm just looking at the fan intepreations of the anatomy, biology and internal workings of Matoran and Toa (as well as any other MU species) bodies. And any BIONICLE stuff that has had thought put into it.

Hello, welcome to my user page on deviantART. I am an aspiring writer who focuses on a variety of genres, like science fiction, fantasy, mystical, mythical, science fantasy etc. I am not a great writer yet, but I will do my best to try and grow in experience. And who knows? Maybe one day I will be called the greatest. Though that is not really most important to me. That would be creating the stories that fill me people with emotions, and satisfy my own artistically needs. It does not have to be called the greatest literature to be the greatest. You know, it doesn't have to be spelled out. Jk. Of course I would want to be one of the greatest. I really hope I that I will be, it is my dream after all. Please do not label me as an arrogant person for saying so. In reality, I am kind-hearted person, not particularly obedient, but still kind-hearted and good in my opinion. Even though I do have a little bit of a temperament.

I would also love to work in multimedia one day, but I want to be a writer first of all.

Maybe I will add more to this deviantID some day. We'll see.


Stay creative,
- Lukas

:wave: Hello there! Lukas Sprehn here :D Welcome to my userpage - and my highly overrated point donation.

Everyone who's open to help a fellow artist in need of points, please take the time to consider donating to me :)

I need these points in order to get the illustrations for the novel I am currently writing. It is a mystic sci-fi-fantasy-superhero story. No mediocore stuff, simply an epic tale of passion, divine powers and the struggle to save a whole universe... or perhaps more.

Check out the concept drawing, Thunderbrave (main character) Esepen Sætervik did for me. It's in my galery.

And thank you; every little single bit helps :D

:iconespenartman: is the one I intend to be the illustrator. He already agreed, but only if I can pay him. He takes 300 points for each day. And he spend 5 days on illustrations, and 2 days on concept art.

I'll be sure to spend them well! :D

Thank you for considering helping!

You must be logged in to donate.

Well, you're so good with story ideas! Which makes me wonder, how the heck did you get that good with ideas?! I know it's an awfully cliché and annoying question to ask how you come up with, or where you get your ideas, but it just so happens to be my number one biggest problem. I never have any ideas. Nothing. I don't know why though. I don't know how to get them. Any tips?

You're too kind! :iconblushplz:

I'd say you're selling yourself short there! Sometimes we have so many ideas we don't think we have any. It's true! All you need to do is keep some account of your ideas so you can go back and remember little pieces of concepts you had so you can combine them with new ideas you come up with.
Also don't be afraid to stand on the shoulders of giants: that is borrow from the greats.

The Chronicles of Narnia is a fine series and well remembered, but it like Lord of the Rings is almost entirely dependent on legends that were written way before the stories were. Dwarves? Elves? Centaurs? All of these were parts of earlier folklore, reimagined for a new generation.
Star Wars? The story is almost beat for beat the classic notion of a young knight, an old wizard, a traitorous sorcerer...but George Lucas put it all in the future so it became original again.

If you're concerned an idea is not original enough, transpose it! Want to write something someone else has already written? Tweak it! The Hunger Games is also based on Greek Mythology, specifically the tribute of young men and women to the minotaur. But instead of a minotaur they battle each other. An unoriginal idea becomes the beginning of an original universe.

Each of my ideas builds on notions from my dreams, ideas other people have had I've tried to recombine into new concepts, and sometimes just my own experiences.

If you're alive and you're thinking you have ideas! Just bring them out, play with them, and sometimes all you have to do is sit back and let them tell you the story they want to be part of :)
