Butterflies in Dreadful Poetry

Draft Done: Dreadful Poetry

My, how time flies–like a snail. Wish it was butterflies. Lita just had to take some time to get to the bottom of the matter concerning Wizard’s Madness, and butterflies.

Not a Butterfly

Time Flies Like a Snail

Lita hid in her writer’s room these past many weeks, working on the first draft of Dreadful Poetry. She is delighted to say that the first draft is now done.

In this next installment of the Clockpunk Wizard series, an elf prince’s son teams up with a disgraced wizardling to clear their names with the Magic Guild.

This story goes back to when Kadmeion was a wizardling student at the Agatha University of Magical Arts and Sciences. He gets into a bind with the deadly end of his year of field study. His faculty mentor, Wizard Morton, introduces the wizardling to a clockworks graduate named Bright who recently had an out-of-control magical episode. After a lifelong inability to work spells, Bright all but leveled the merchant’s quarter. Now the soon-to-be airship mechanic needs wizardly help to sort things out.

Together, the lads must untangle matters before their messes land them in magician’s prison. Even worse, they must pass a class called Dreadful Poetry, which is not as easy as it seems. And, there is the matter about the butterflies.

Sneak Peek: Ephraim’s Curious Device Cover

Sure, call me impatient. Raring to go. Even label me hasty, when I am properly motivated like now. But you benefit, Gentle Reader.  Look here. I must show you my pretty.

I couldn’t wait to share the eBook cover for my next Clockpunk Wizard story.  Here is the just-completed face for Ephraim’s Curious Device.

Why a Forest?

Please don’t worry, the story has plenty of scenes aboard Kadmeion’s wonderful airship. This forest is on one of the floating islands, called Hurt Isle. Kadmeion and Bright visit because a minor demon oracle lives there, and she has information about Ephraim’s trinket. Hurt Isle is a very old island that has drifted far Rim-ward and will soon be torn apart in the Rim storms. Its ambient magic senses this oblivion and has soured, turning most of its native magical creatures, well, unpleasant. Kadmeion and Bright stumble upon a few who are deadly, and they must use their cleverness to come out alive.

Meet Izlyesende

Izlyesende is a male fey who lives at the edge of the oracle’s valley. As one of the few remaining fairies on Hurt Isle, he and his dwindling clan are under attack by the oracle and other malevolent creatures. In exchange for information on how to solve the oracle’s riddle, Kadmeion allows Izlyesende and his female fey-folk to hitch a ride on the airship.

Before you say Lita has gotten sentimental with her storytelling, I must admit something. Kadmeion’s kindness aside, we’re talking about mixing fey magic and wizardry. Once onboard, the female fairies discover Bright’s half-elf magic. That’s when the trouble really begins.

The back cover blurb for Ephraim’s Curious Device tells more.
