City of the Gods Universe

Featured

In the distant past, the gods abandoned their Earthly domains, leaving most of their followers behind. But they took some men and women along to serve them as they fought to rule the realms of a new dimension anchored by the City of the Gods.

The novels, story collections, comics and gaming products in the City of the Gods Universe chronicle the adventures of the humans trapped by the whim of the gods and explore the supernatural mysteries inherent in the divine world and its rulers.

A unique aspect of the City of the Gods novels is their visual appeal. Each book is fully illustrated with new twists on classic art from past masters.

Introducing the Voice of the City

2016 is shaping up to be an exciting year for the  City of the Gods Universe. One of our dream projects is becoming a reality: the audiobook version of the first novel, City of the Gods: Forgotten.

I am thrilled to introduce you to the artist chosen to bring the City to life, Mr. Christopher Thomson. ~ Wynn

chris thomsonThat is the question. Well, generally I am a 25 years old man from Essex, UK. I’ve been doing voices since I was very young and gave each toy I played with a different one. As I went to school, I started to do impressions and have performed them as a party trick over the years since. It wasn’t until my late teens that I started to put them online on YouTube and such – which has now caught some attention!

You’ve had many different creative roles in projects, such as writer, actor, and voice artist. Which of those roles do you enjoy most?

I prefer acting mostly. It’s taken me years to say that, as I’ve struggled with having the confidence to do it. Rather than seeking opportunities like any performer should do, I ended up writing my own. A bit like at an amateur dramatic society. As time went on, I’ve had so many compliments that equate to slapping me in the face to say “Chris, you can do this. Now do it!” After a bit of time, I’m happily able to agree with them.
