Worldly Words

Not only do I love writing about stars and dragons, but also studying foreign languages.  I started off with French back in high school, and kept on learning.  There was Japanese, Latin, German, and even Spanish.  Learning these languages, as well as studying linguistics from an anthropological perspective, have helped me better understand what to consider when designing the languages for Lorata.

For now here is a look at how my series title, Legends of Lorata, would look in other Terran languages:

German: Legenden von Lorata

Japanese: ロラタの伝説  Rorata no Densetsu

French: Légendes de Lorata

Latin: Fabulae Loratam

Russian: Легенды Лораты Legendy Loraty

Spanish: Leyendas de Lorata

Welch: Chwedlau o Lorata

I am currently working on Book Three: The Misty Shores of Cioria.  It is going through a bit of editing for the parts already written, then I will add to it.  I am looking into whether or not I will be able to do Camp NaNoWriMo, so that my sci-fi can get a little more attention.  I found a way to use an idea that I have been toying with for quite a while, so that will be exciting!  Until next time, happy reading!

About Legends of Lorata

Eleanor Willow is the author of the high fantasy series Legends of Lorata, which takes place on a medieval-style world filled with elves, dragons, and faeries. There is also a fourth race, one that is rare and magical: the angelic Starr. Lorata is a distant planet watched over by four deities: good, evil, elemental, and celestial-- and there are plenty of legends about them all! One of the most important ones is the prophecy of Jenh's champion, Loracaz, who is promised to return to the realm whenever evil threatens to take hold. There are currently three books completed, and the first one can be read online. Book four is currently being written, and a fifth will most likely be in the future.
