THE RUNAWAY QUEEN is now available! Bathtub!Magnus and revolutionary!France for your enjoyment.
Friends, I am excited. As you may know, I have been working on a series called THE BANE CHRONICLES, based on Cassie Clare’s books—specifically, on the adventures of Magnus Bane.
My first offering in the series, THE RUNAWAY QUEEN, is NOW OUT.
It has everything a story really requires: Revolutionary Paris, a hot air balloon, great clothes, huge wigs, moving furniture, dashing counts, and a monkey. Oh, and the queen. And some vampires. And other stuff.
YOU MIGHT LIKE IT.
And here is a piece of ART created by Cassandra Jean after she read the story. BATHTUB MAGNUS. You’re welcome.
|Isaac:||Augustus Waters was a self-aggrandizing bastard. But we forgive him. We forgive him not because he had a heart as figuratively good as his literal one sucked, or because he knew more about how to hold a cigarette than any nonsmoker in history, or because he got eighteen years when he should've gotten more.|
|Isaac:||I'm assuming you've got some time, you interupting bastard.|
|Isaac:||I'm telling you, Augustus Waters talked so much that he'd interrupt you at his own funeral. And he was pretentious: Sweet Jesus Christ, that kid never took a piss without pondering the abundant metaphorical resonances of human waste production. And he was vain: I do not believe I have ever met a more physically attractive person who was more acutely aware of his own physical attractiveness.|
|Issac:||But I will say this: When the scientists of the future show up at my house with robot eyes and they tell me to try them on, I will tell the scientists to screw off, because I do not want to see a world without him.|
