Thirteen-year old Mercury Brightman has crossed the great divide that keeps Thera and Earth apart, and discovers a magical world of enchantment and possibility. Before she has a chance to experience its pure magic she learns that it is she who must save it from its terrible fate.

Interesting news.

It's kind of hard to know how or which deviants make successfull publishing projects out there in the world. I think your newscast is really inspiring for newbies like me.
votrereine Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2008

It's a shame I haven't been unable to write any new articles but there are more to come.

Pretty nice, but I found an error already =[. You know on the front page of the illustration? Isn't meant to say complete? Instead of compleat? But other than that, its very nice.

^^ Thanks for pointing it out, but the other commenters are right; it's a deliberate archaism.
kadarian Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2007
I think "compleat" is intentional. ;) Just a guess, but given that they also spelled "pirate" as "pyrate", I'm thinking that it's a deliberate misspelling.
That's assuming we're looking at the same front page...
votrereine Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2007
Thank you.

Which illustration? Perhaps you should let them know.
