Shalaeyah! Hello!
Welcome to The Spine of the Empire.

Shalaeyah means 'hello' in Tyra Tarkush. Tyra Tarkush is the 'first' language in the world of my book series. 'The Spine of the Empire', in that same world, is the communication network of the Empire, the organization and government of the races in the univers.

In this world, it is the website concerning all things related to my main book series, the Adventures of the Trinity and the One, and its world. Here you can find updates on the series and in depth posts on pieces of the world, Carathoukiea. Not only that, you can find my short stories and other written work.

The Characters of the series commissioned by various artists: Erika Hollice, AR Sullivan, and Haasio. See below for exact attributions.

Where to Start?

The best way to get into my world and my work is to read it in release order (instead of chronological order). This means starting with How to Stop Wildfire and then continuing with the rest of the series. You can read all my books for free by joining my Patreon.

The early books of the series give you a good introduction of the world, and from there you can continue onto The Lost, my short stories, my spoiler-filled blog posts, and the Database.

About the Author: Sarah Sunday

The book series, its world, the characters, all of it, are things that I have developed over the course of my entire-thinking life. I love weaving narratives together, breathing life into these characters, and building this world up. This is the enduring passion of my life that has neither a clear beginning nor an end in sight.

September 2023 in Art

It doesn’t seem like I did that much art for September: just Tzah’quih from Jurak’s Day and a Mechanicha sketch. That is because the rest of it was practice or has already been shown! The already shown pieces of art are the maps I’ve made with Wonderdraft and the custom symbols I’ve made for those maps. The practice art has been of Humanoid heads, which I'm still pretty poor at.
