Hello, and welcome to my worlds! I'm Kyra Halland, fantasy author, and I'm excited for the chance to share my stories with you.
I've been writing since late 1989 or early 1990. At that time, when I finished my first novel, I dabbled in the traditional publishing process a bit, and though the feedback I got wasn't too discouraging, I quickly realized that this process just wasn't for me. So, for many years, I kept my writing to myself, or posted it for free on a small website I had, Worlds Apart, which few people ever looked at. But now, with the rise of e-books, print-on-demand, and the ease of publishing independently through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, and other outlets, I've found the perfect opportunity to put my stories out into the world where other people can read and (hopefully) enjoy them. As of this writing, I plan to release my first independently-published novel, Urdaisunia, in February, with two or maybe even three more novels to follow this year, and even more to come after that.
This site is mainly directed at readers, with release and purchasing information, background info and other fun stuff about my novels and short stories, and things to read right here for free. I'll share a little bit about my creative process, background on the worlds and characters, the playlists I listen to to set the mood for my stories, and other things that have inspired my writing. Also, for the occasional writer who might stop by, and since I believe everyone should try writing a novel at least once, just to see what it's like, I'll make a post every once in a while on writing.
I hope you'll take a moment to look around the site, and that you'll find something you like. And please come back again soon!
