A down-on-his-luck Necromancer and his dimwitted skeleton companion find a powerful, ancient artifact. But when it accidentally goes off and kills a powerful Paladin, they're forced to flee town. After meeting up with a young woman and her Ogre companion, the Necromancer finds a new purpose and a new life.

Ooh, I really like this so far! I'm kind of reminded of Yato from Noragami here. Necromancers are awesome and this is really different from my WIP about a necromancer.

Such a fun play on the tropes! Thanks! Check out mine if you have a min.
This is a really clever take on necromancy. Usually necromancers are depicted as all powerful and super evil, but I find it really refreshing that they struggle for work just like anybody else. It's a cool concept, and something I'd never really thought of before :)

Oh. My. God.  I fell in love. 
                              
                              This is the kind of story and wording I've been waiting for. Hope you keep on writing!

Why did you change the cover? I liked the old one SO much better!

Quite clever. I've never seen a story where necromancy was used for trivial labor; quite a contrast with the typical 'army of the undead' trying to take over the world.
