A Lady's Prerogative

As a result of social abuse by a local harassment and hate group and with little support from the local community, I fear that I must cease writing any new content for the A Lady's Prerogative storyline until further notice. The same fate has befallen the Butterfly Dragon line of stories as well. Hopefully this situation will find itself fixed and soon lest we take legal steps to remedy it.

A Lady's Prerogative Book II: Wounded Aerth

So far pretty epic at nearly 145,000 words falling short of The Butterfly Dragon I: Heroes Of Our Own word count which is approximately 165,000 words.

A Lady's Prerogative: Alivale In Autumn
Mila, Barris and Sato visit shops on the Alivale main strip and find out about the death of one of the seniors of the town, and the artist who's moved into that senior's home as the new owner.

However, after their visit to these shops, something doesn't quite seem right as a mysterious fog rolls in to envelope the Alivale region.

Something lurks within the fog. Something sinister, once again inviting Mila, Nelony and Shaela to investigate the second of Alivale's greatest mysteries.

A Lady's Prerogative: Sato's Shameful Shop Of Lust
While Mila dance's with the Devil In Music, Barris is off to Shepperton by the Thames in London to help Sato do some reorganizing of his curios and treasures shop. Things get a little hot under the collar for reasons you'll need to read for yourself in this short. Viewer discretion is advised.

Sometimes the biggest heroes come in the smallest packages. Unfortunately that's also the case for the mischievous too.

A Lady's Prerogative: Hallow's Weave (Finished second draft)
Started in June of 2016. First published in July of 2016 on Tales Of The Sanctum by Brian Joseph Johns.

Every year should it follow 'round the season of Wytch's Hallow,
Upon the night of the weave, it would be called Hallow's Eve.
The Wytches and Sorcers comparing their weave forces.
A game that is fought through planned fear and negotiable fraught.
For those whose hearts do overcome may find their truly treasured sum.
Its weight much less than air though its true value without compare.
There's winners and there's losers both while be entertaining muses.
And one lost soul to retrieve on this Wytch's Hallow's Eve...

A Lady's Prerogative: Barris, Where Art Thou? (Finished)
Started in March of 2015. First published in November of 2015.

A dark night in the household. A mysterious man hunting Mila within. The ghosts of two long passed Women of history hold the key. This is a night full of surprises and the mysteries of a distant land of Gypsies, Werewolves and a dreaded Count... and of course Barris caught in the midst of this with nothing but his sense of humour and his gauchies.

A Lady's Prerogative: Bella's Tarot Reading (First Draft Finished)
by Brian Joseph Johns

Mila and Barris once again find themselves in the midst of one of Margaret and Susannia's games. They are whisked off to the far away land of... Niagara Falls? Along with Shaela, Nelony and Sato where they meet an old friend who holds the key to their fate...

A Lady's Prerogative: The Test Of Time (Unfinished Work In Progress)

Started in May of 2011. First Published on one of my personal blogs (the now archived Poetry And Fiction) by Brian Joseph Johns.

This story takes place within the same universe as the rest of A Lady's Prerogative and introduces some of the most important concepts about the Sanctum, though at this point the Sanctum does not appear in the text. Nor do any of the characters with which you might be familiar. If you've been reading some of the other A Lady's Prerogative short fiction such as Barris, Where Art Thou? and Bella's Tarot Reading, this novel will give you a background on the mischievous ghostly apparitions Margaret and Suzannia. The book takes place at various points in time around the main story arc of ALP 1 and 2.

This book remains unfinished and I am not sure if I'll ever return to it, but I do keep it here in the chance that I might one day decide to finish it.
