High Urban Fantasy Jazz

What’s that?

High fantasy takes place in another world, has a hard magic system, and high word counts. Urban fantasy takes place in our world, can have soft magic systems, and usually come in shorter books. My writing combines the two. Also, I just really like jazz.

For Free Heap, I picked this square with the red circles in the middle to represent the forge. Surrounded, of course by brown and silver.
