Meg Merriet By MegMerriet Completed

| Featured Story | This fast-paced novella follows the adventure of a fledgling sky pirate as she becomes entangled in a revolution.

For a year, the scrappy picklock Clikk has flown aboard The Wastrel disguised as a man. When her captain kidnaps a girl named Molly, Clikk is furious to learn that he plans to sell her as a bride to a despotic emperor. 

Molly has a secret that could be the catalyst of a revolutionary war, but the captain can't wait to be rid of her. Girls are bad luck on airships, and this one suffers a curse that makes her unable to stop crying. Clikk schemes to help Molly escape, but to do so, she must inspire a mutiny, stop an imperial wedding at sky and sneak the girl onto a hijacked ship, all while enduring the child's intolerable crying curse.

lol do they think women carry diseases only found in the female sex? Last I checked, they all emerged from a woman. 😂

Pirates were thought of as gentlemen of the sea. Glad it's the same in the sky.

I like this opening. It's  undertones share volumes and help set the stage, without revealing much of anything about the plot. It's a great way to help the reader land on their feet when they start.

I still prefer 'skyhauled.' Windhauled sounds like something else. ;) But this rule sounds strangely fun.
