BRING ON THE MAGIC HAS ALMOST BEEN BROUGHT
Posted on January 12, 2018
Just a quick update on Bring On the Magic. I am at 61,000 words and just mapped out the last eight chapters of the book very tightly. It's looking like about another 14,000 words will be needed, which I will work on today and the first part of next week. If everything goes smoothly,, the novel will be done by next Thursday. I'm pretty excited by the book as it was a lot of fun to write and feels like my most targeted piece to date.
Here's the back cover summary:
For the past six months, rookie world mage, Randall Flood, has been hunting down and capturing anything that stinks of magic and stashing it within the pages of a spellbook named Chuck. But is there more to his breakneck missions than meets the eye?
The talkative tome claims Randall's predecessor, Mitch, is to blame for magic's reappearance. The previous wizard had banished most anything magical and hoarded the remaining spells and mystic weapons for himself. Now, as magic resurfaces with greater frequency, Randall doubts the wisdom of capturing the arcane and socking it away in the spellbook.
An encounter with an attractive and crafty witch through an enchanted dating app upends his wizardly purpose and sets him on a path to halt a magical disaster.
Randall must decide whether to save the world using his tried-and-true spellbook or through another mystical avenue that is unusual and untested.
Brian Clopper lends his trademark wit and talent for concocting clever magical mash-ups in a new fantasy novel that explores the archetype of sorcerer as earthly protector in a dynamic new light.
