Daern is a weekly updating high-fantasy audio novel co-authored by husband and wife Caitlin and Michael Penny. The story will chronicle the lives and times of four principle characters as they struggle to survive and come together in a world threatening to tear itself apart. The setting of our story is medieval but the themes explored in it will be very contemporary as characters learn to deal with issues relating to anxiety, identity, and loss.

To reflect each character’s differing emotions, opinions, and thoughts the novel will be divided into episodic parts highlighting a single character. When strung together each character’s separate point of view creates a multi-faceted plot.

With your support we will be able to bring you even more exciting content. Such as the creation of a  secondary video series that would focus on our writing process, explore important literary tropes in the story, and best of all answer your questions. With enough funding we would also be able to spend even more time on writing and increase our updates of the story to twice a week! That's the double the sword fights, double the existential crises, and double the editing for Michael! XD (Don't worry he actually likes editing he's weird like that)
