Michel Wibert was raised by his grandmother. He's well off, stubborn, independent, and has strong ideas about what goes in his hometown of New York City.
He can also see Gods.
With little to no magical talent of his own, Michel instead treats with the Elders, bartering for favors and trinkets. He started out doing so because his Nana taught him to. As he gets older, though, he comes to realize that he might in fact have a reason, a role - one he himself doesn't understand.
Michel is the central character in an ongoing story called The New York Magician. Thanks for reading, and feedback is always welcomed.
The first several New York Magician stories are (or will be shortly) available as an ebook, in either epub or mobi (kindle) format. If you'd like a copy, all I ask is for any feedback you might have on the layout, prose or story, and that you not share it with anyone until I've figured out what I'm going to do as far as licensing/rights goes. Contact me via /msg for a copy, and please indicate whether you're an epub (iPad, Nook, etc) or mobi (Kindle) customer. Thanks. -TC
Note: The Heart's Filthy Lesson is the title of a song by David Bowie; some lyrics from that song are present in the writeup, credited there. In addition, a few nodes use lyrics from 'This City Never Sleeps' by Eurythmics as their titles.
