Magi of Gaia – Volume One: I Told a Lie

Three young, inexperienced magicians must defend their world against a wave of increasingly difficult opponents. That’s what Magi of Gaia is essentially about, but if you’re only looking for fierce, hard-hitting action, you’ll overlook the humor, kindness, and drama that bring this world to life. Sure, you might be happy with the amazing uses of magic and the broken noses, but you’ll miss out on seeing the quick temper of the usually-composed Jorri, the softheartedness escaping from Yuna’s severe demeanor, or Eren’s courage overcoming her self-doubt.

This trio, the Magi, are the imperfect heroes—human in spite of their incredible powers—and are tasked with keeping their world from falling into darkness. When a magician enters Gaia’s realm, it’s the Magi’s job to find them, determine whether or not they are hostile, and deal with the situation appropriately. It’s a lot to ask, and things aren’t helped by the appearance of a woman claiming to be a deity whose sole joy seems to be breaking the Magi’s spirit … and their bodies. This woman shows her powers seldomly, but when she does, she breaks the very logic of their world and makes it look effortless.

Come and read more. Find out how our heroines can laugh and joke around, even under the toughest of circumstances. See if you can figure out why Eren, a girl who should be a beloved hero, is treated as though she’s diseased. Discover why 80% of Gaia’s population is … female?!

It seems Gaia is different from Earth is more ways than you might think.


Meet T.E. Holtz

T.E. Holtz is an American writer who first started drafting the original Magi of Gaia (then titled “Welcome to Gaia”) as a playful hobby online in 2014. After a year of writing for fun, Holtz saw that the story could be reworked in a meaningful way with more excitement, better characterization, and a more, fuller view of this new world called Gaia. Finally, after years of tweaking and developing, Holtz ended a nearly 10-year employment at one of the world’s largest retailers in hopes of pursuing a love grander than the universe—a love for the world of Gaia and all the beloved characters than inhabit it.

Meet Cedrick E. Wilson

Cedrick was in love with writing before he even realized it. It started first with his love of film. With movies like Flash Gordon, Star Wars, Cooley High and The Warriors. Those films opened up his creativity. There were times when visiting his Grandmother or his great Aunts on their secluded farms in the state of Texas when his imagination was all he had.

As a teen, he moved to Florida and that’s where his creativity took off. In his first couple of days in a new school, he was approached by a classmate who asked did he know how to rap? He answered no, but the classmate replied by saying I’ll show you. Cedrick began to write raps which back in the eighties was more like stories and much different than it is today. He wrote the story and the classmate rearranged the words and organized them into rap lyrics and from there he just couldn’t put the pen down. After the classmate moved away, Cedrick kept on writing stories and turned them into rap lyrics even though, he couldn’t rap to save his life.

After high school, he kept writing but a discovery in a magazine helped him go in a different direction. He came across an advertisement for writers, a store that sold books that taught you how to write screenplays. His love for movies and writing came together.

Life happened and he put away his pen to provide for his family but the stories swimming around in his head wouldn’t go away. Even though he was busy with work and taking care of his family, he made sure that he made time to write. He wrote a ton of scripts and entered a few screenwriting contests, but he realized to make it in Hollywood you’d more than likely have to move there or know somebody that knows somebody to get in the door. His wife kept telling him for years to write books instead but he didn’t think he was cut out to be an author in that capacity.

A life-altering event plus the fact that he’s not getting any younger finally caused him to take the plunge.

He published his first book in January 2018 with more to come.
