Share Your Passion

How do you share your world?
Could more people connect with your work?
Are you looking for more interest from friends and fans?


A map will let you share your world with others, without requiring them to read your manuscript first.

As a writer, I know how lonely worldbuilding can be. It's hard to engage people in a world you invented, especially if your manuscript isn't finished yet. But a map is the single best way to get the encouragement you need. Your world map embodies your creative vision and lets you connect with fans in an easy and wonderful way.

Client Praise for Maps by D.N.Frost:

In terms of aesthetics, D.N. was always on-point and detail-oriented.

The Realms of Iorden, a map commission by D.N.Frost for fantasy podcast writers Zachary Glass and Christian Madera of TOAFN http://DNFrost.com/commissions
This allowed us to maintain complete creative control of our world, but also drastically improved the “real-ness” of the geography. Our map was greatly improved by her input.

We absolutely recommend D.N.'s work to any world!

Britannia, a map commission by D.N.Frost for historical fantasy author Linnea Tanner http://DNFrost.com/commissions
The map aptly represents my vision of Ancient Britain. I love the way you highlighted the major landmarks. Your final rendition looks like what an ancient map-maker would have created.

I love this and am very happy with how it looks!

Find Motivation

How often are you writing?
Could you make more progress on your work?
Are you looking to feel more passion about your world?


A map will motivate you with interest and prompt feedback from others, evoking real conversations about your creative passion.

As a writer, I know how grueling a manuscript can be. It takes dedicated patience to write, edit, and publish your story, all before you can share your work with anyone. But a map makes all the hard work easier. Even the simplest feedback from others is a major motivation to keep at it.

Client Praise for Maps by D.N.Frost:

Once we started the geography, it started to develop a life of its own.

Sheridan's World, a map commission by D.N.Frost for science-fiction writer Stephen Everett http://DNFrost.com/commissions
It's much easier to picture and write the journeys with a map I can use. Picturing the mountains, the lakes, and their placements made it come alive.

It looks better than good, it looks excellent!

Who Can Commission A Map?


View Map Commission Gallery

You can commission a map as long as you have a unique realm of your own.

Your world can be fictional, futuristic, or historical. You must be the inventor of the world, or have creative rights to it.

I work with authors, gamers or dungeon masters, and unpublished writers. You have full rights to your map, so you can both publish it and post it online.

To get a sense of my mapping styles, browse my Map Commissions Portfolio, as well as the Maps of the Known World for my fantasy saga.

I share work-in-progress images and my experiences with each commissioned project in my ongoing mini-series of previous map commissions.

For details on my mapping process, view or download the Map Commission FAQ. Style adjustments are often easy to accommodate, so please email me at maps@DNFrost.com with any questions or concerns.


Spark Inspiration

How do you inspire yourself?
Could your story use more creative passion?
Are you looking to discover more stories within your world?


A map will stoke your imagination, immersing you in your world and sparking new stories of the people who live there.

As a writer, I know how momentous a world map can be. You must think deep about your world to make it visual, and a map drives you to be inventive and thorough. Soon, you'll be inventing new areas, peoples, and stories that you'd never brought into focus before.

Client Praise for Maps by D.N.Frost:

I had no idea just how much this would help my envisioning.

A'tal, a map commission by D.N.Frost for fantasy author Morgyn Star http://DNFrost.com/commissions
I'm staring at A'tal right now, while adding one more chapter to my book. The questions that arose while we mapped helped to clarify parts of my story.

Very, very cool and so helpful!

The map has a wonderful strangeness.

Minbari of Sheridan's World, a map commission by D.N.Frost for science-fiction writer Stephen Everett http://DNFrost.com/commissions
D.N.Frost used color and shadings to convey mood and geography, the eastern Earth life encroaching on the local alien life. I think the whole effect is awesome.

Hell yes, excellent job on this!

You Deserve A Map


A world map is the perfect way to share your creativity quickly and easily with others. They'll see your map and can respond to it without reading your whole story first. A map is the most sharable element of your storytelling adventure. Whether you write for fun or for publication, the small lonely world of worldbuilding opens up when you have a map to show off.

It's easier to stay motivated when you get frequent encouragement from others. We all know the best encouragement is seeing someone genuinely interested in your story. A map is the gateway into conversations about your work, and there's nothing more invigorating and motivating than talking about your work.

A world map also helps you with your storytelling. As you delve into details during the mapping process, you connect more deeply with your world. You'll notice things on the map that you haven't invented yet, and you'll find nooks and crannies to build into fresh stories. A map adds realism to your story by making the world more navigable to readers and enhancing your craft as a storyteller.

  1. Hello there! My name is D.N.Frost, and I'm a fantasy author, cartographer, and world-builder. My love for storytelling drives me to build the Known World, map its lands, and tell its tales. Let me send you my free ebook at DNFrost.com/adventures!

  2. Dear D.N.,

    It was a pleasure to work with you in creating my maps of Ancient Britain that display the location of major Celtic tribal territories and landmarks that have been referenced in my blog APOLLO'S RAVEN and my first novel with the same name in an epic historical fantasy series about a mystical warrior princess and the great-grandson of Mark Antony. As I was writing my manuscript, I realized how important it was for readers to understand the distances between tribal capitals and landmarks. I loved the way that you highlighted the major landmarks of the White Cliffs (Dover Cliffs) and Apollo's Temple (Stonehenge) on the map. Your final rendition looked like what an ancient map-maker would have created. By your working closely with me, we were able to finalize the map that aptly represents my vision of Ancient Celtic Britain. You provided different styles of these maps that I can incorporate into my blog and final published work. And I appreciated the way you carefully laid out the rights for using these maps.

    As my series expands into Gaul (modern day France) and Italy, I will definitely work with you again in creating these ancient worlds. Thank you so much for working with me on this project. It was a joy to work with you.

    Best regards,
    Linnea
