Welcome to the Dreadful Poetry Book Release Party

Watch your step on the gangplank as you come aboard Wizard Kadmeion’s airship.

Disregard the Somewhat Frightful Face

Disregard the Somewhat Frightful Face

Glad You Came

Love your beautiful hair and outfit, my dear. Is that big purple and white flower on your dress enchanted? Oh, it giggles, and smells like good luck. Yes then, it’s the perfect thing to wear today to the wizard’s affair.

See that homunculus with the three legs standing just inside the door? That is one of Sir Bright’s clockworks creations. Disregard Marty’s somewhat frightful face that looks like a metal triangle. Hand your cloak to him. Marty will remove the snow with a brush made of dragon eyelashes, and hold your garment in the atrium until it is time to go.

The rest of the guests are gathering in the forward lounge. Kadmeion, his elf assistant Bright, and the wizard’s cynanthrope familiar Furgo are here. The woodland fairies flit about, are always ready to perch on your hand, and talk about their naughty ways. Wizard Morton from the university arrived earlier, along with a few Magic Guild cronies.

Before you go inside, take a moment please, and step to the display table over here. This will take only a moment.

Dreadful Poetry by Lita BurkeSpells Transport Your Copy to You

Get your very own copy of our wizard’s latest story, Dreadful Poetry. Today is release day!

Dreadful Poetry tells about the wee bit of trouble the boys had while at the university. Bright was not always a mage, and Kadmeion had quite the time of it with his field study. For a while, it seemed that both of them would land in magician’s prison.

Thank you for the small amount it takes for the wizards at Amazon to fuel the transport spells that whisk an eBook immediately to you. Their clever enchantments will deliver your book to these magical locations around the world: US, UK, CA, AU, and IN.

Look Who Just Arrived

Kadmeion’s Auntie Em just stepped in. Let’s give her a few minutes to greet her favorite nephew. Oh, look. The wizard is bringing her over to say hello to us.

“Forever Boy” Takes Finalist in Readers’ Favorite Contest

Forever Boy RF Finalist 2015Lita is delighted to tell Gentle Reader that the 2015 Readers’ Favorite International Book Award Contest named Forever Boy as the Finalist Winner in its Fiction-Short Story category.

Readers’ Favorite gives readers a resource for quality book reviews. Their annual book award contest offers authors the opportunity to gain recognition and exposure of their books.

This year, Readers’ Favorite honored one of Lita’s Clockpunk Wizard stories. They named Forever Boy as a Finalist Winner in their annual book awards contest. Here is their 5 star review of Forever Boy.

Lita skipped all the way to Alice’s place to tell her good friend the news. “My feet were so caddywhompus on the way here,” Lita said. “I should have stopped and dug for apples until they sorted themselves out.”

The Flamingos Were a Bit Cross

The Flamingos Were a Bit Cross

Alice insisted they celebrate with a rousing game of croquet. As usual, the flamingos were a bit cross about being the mallets. The hedgehogs abandoned their role as balls, and waddled away.

The girls then drank tea with the dormouse until it was time for Lita to go home.

Readers’ Favorite reviewers have said kind things before about Lita’s stories. One reviewer described Forever Boy as “Lita Burke’s steampunk fantasy short story, Forever Boy, is fabulous and filled with magical adventure.” More… Another reviewer gushed this in a 5 star review for Ephraim’s Curious Device: “The Clockpunk Wizard series is a marvelous and magical melding of steampunk with epic fantasy that is fresh, original and really quite exciting.” More…

The award-winning Forever Boy is now just a dollar on Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes & Noble. Don’t wait—indulge yourself now with some tea, croquet, and Clockpunk.

Two Days Before the Wizard’s Airship Departs

Meet Kadmeion's New Wizard Friend in Glitter Ponies

Meet Kadmeion’s New Wizard Friend in Glitter Ponies

More about the goings-on at Lita’s castle in preparation for the Glitter Ponies eBook launch this weekend.

The eBook for Glitter Ponies is ready to go for this coming Saturday, September 26th. But Lita has no time to rest. This next story in the Clockpunk Wizard world will also have a paperback version, and it will be available in a few weeks.

Paperback Writer

Everything is different between the eBook and the paperback, except for the story, of course. The interior uses an alternative font and layout. The front cover looks the same, but it must be a print version of the artwork instead of its web version. To describe it using a wizard’s ~twisty~ logic, the difference is like when Sir Bright uses his elf-kind Glamour spell–he is handsome even without magic.

Tessa-marine is One of Wizard Kadmeion’s Fairies in Glitter Ponies

The back cover and spine must be done just so, or the print book aficionados will be so disappointed. Fussy stuff to get it perfect, but Lita insists on providing only the best for Gentle Reader.

Instant Gratification for Your Kindle

No need to stand in line at the aerodrome ticket window on Saturday to get your seat on the wizard’s airship to the land of Clockpunk Wizard. Preorder Glitter Ponies now and have magical electronic birds whisk the story to your Kindle first thing Saturday morning. That is how Lita thinks it works, anyway.

Be the first to meet a new wizard friend of Kadmeion’s. His three fey-folk fairies also lend a hand in straightening out the matter with the wild brownies that attack visiting wizards to Wuddlekins Island.
