As kind of a sneak preview of my book, I decided to post props from my story I am very excited about!
So here we go:
These will be the spectacles of Neil Nelson. No special powers, they just look awesome! And he has a nervous tick of pushing them up when he is upset or worried. Vote for Nelson! He is the candidate for the town’s election next year against Mayor Meyer. But if I lived in Genevia, I’d vote for Meyer! But don’t tell Nelson that 🙂
The people of Genevia are known for their craftsmanship, even their keys are cool looking! This key belongs to Mayor Meyer, but it’s true importance is with Nelson when he saves the Prince. Won’t spoil much more, sorry!
These babies were a gem to find! They belong to my baddie, Lieutenant Dossel and I’m very proud of how I described them. Won’t tell you what they do or when, but it’s bad mwahaha! Don’t mess with Dossel. Or tell him he’s out of power as soon as you’re King…nope, big mistake!
Another description I’m very proud of. These belong to Professor Higgins. I swapped the lions head on the handle for an owl’s head to represent the wisdom. Or rather, Higgins picked out these chairs for the owl head because he thinks himself of a genius. In a way, he is a bit of a genius. Still a boob though! Ug I can never forgive Higgins…but, spoilers!
A fire hose you might ask? Yep…a fire hose. In the start of my story, Prince Theo gets turned into a Cyborg. Oooo exciting! Well…not going to lie, it kind of is! Professor Higgins was one of the doctor’s who helped install his arm, and he and Doctor Tam added cool gadgets to help him along. They felt bad he was lost his right arm and thought this would help ease him up.
And one of the gadgets is…yep, a fire hose. Which comes in pretty handy! Well, Keshka thinks so at least!
So that’s it for the sneak preview! Hope you guys liked it. I’m super excited for finishing the story to find out exactly what happens because my characters have been surprising me through and through and half the stuff that happened I have no idea where it came from. On the other hand, I’m having so much fun writing this thing I know I’m going to be a sad bubble when it’s over! But then you get to read it, so it will all be worth it.

Thanks again you guys for getting me into Steampunk! I can’t believe I wasn’t familiar with it before this year lol.
