Well I saw the thing standing in the desert heatIt had a ukelele and suction cup feetWith no one else around far as I could seeLooks like a purple people eater to me...(And all of you should know what comes next....) ....I wanted to paint something purple.  My friend suggested the purple people eater.  So, I decided to reinvent the purple people eater.  Why is he tuning a ukelele?  Why does he have suction cup feet? Why is he in a desert?  (Well, he's clearly tuning his ukele BECAUSE he's in the desert!  You know-- different atmospheric conditions effect tuning and all!)I used watercolors and watercolor pencils.  I've been avoiding doing things properly, so instead of using watercolor paper, I used rubber cement to stick copy paper to cardboard.  It works pretty well.  The background was done on two notecards runbber-cemented together.  This does not work well.  I combined  monster and background in Paint Shop Pro.It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater(One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater)A one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eaterSure looks strange to me (One eye?)-"The Purple People Eater" by Sheb Wooley.

VII. Lisius (Part B)

So, this is the second chunk of the chapter, significantly larger than the first....I sincerely hope you like dialogue. :(  And you don't mind subplots reminiscent of the Industrial Revolution.  And you like eery clock-and-dagger type dealings. (But who DOESN'T like those?) Next chapter, I check in with Willow again.... 

VI. Helena

Time for another random Point of View change!The mysterious woman that ended the last chapter is Emrpress Helena of Soltara, who we meet here.One of the things I've always marveled at is how easy telepathy seems in most Fantasy stories.  I imagine that it would take a fair bit of practice!  There's a lot more going on in your brain than yuo realize, and the person you're trying to communicate doesn't necessarily think in the same manner as you.  Unless you want to puzzle through the images, scents, sounds, emotions and erroneous connections in the other person's mind, the easiest thing to do would to be to focus on the words you're trying to communicate, and even then, you can't block everything out....

IV. The Orchid Parlor

Here, across the ocean from Magtara, we meet another important player in my story; Prince Thainen.  He is an ambitious mage, still smarting from a myserious disagreement with his father.This chapter is a little slow, but I promise more action and intrigue in the next chapter! :P

i. Borrowed Moonlight (Prologue)

I decided that my story needed a prologue... Other than that, I don't have much to say. I hope you enjoy it! :)(those of you who have read my later chapters might recognize some characters. XD)

I. Hawthorn

(The prologue to this is called Borrowed Moonlight. It's not necessary to read that first, or at all, but it's an option....  I'm just sayin'...)This is the first chapter of my mess of a novel-in-progress.  Here, you meet Willow, who is NOT THE MAIN CHARACTER, merely one protagonist whose point of view I occasionally use. Yes, I know it's a little slow.  Constructive criticism is welcome.This chapter, and the next, are set-up for the rest of the story.  It takes place in a quasi-Victorian fantasy world, where magic, politics and human nature are seamlessly intertwined.
