Yep! As the title said, the ebook of Beneath Stained Glass wings is up for FREE right over here! The world’s going through a hell of a hard time right now, and while I can’t contribute in huge, meaningful ways, I figured that offering a book might help someone escape. Novels have gotten me through so many tough times, and the magic they gave me when I lacked any light is one of the reasons I write today. So I hope that you can find some solace in escaping into this book. All I ask is that you drop a review onto Amazon or Goodreads if you can! Please feel free to share around this post, or to spread around the posts I’ve made on Twitter and Tumblr to spread the word if you know anyone who might enjoy a book like this one!
Ava is on the run for a crime punishable by death: killing a dragon.
As a human-dragon hybrid, Ava has never doubted the godlike dragons’ dominance. Her life has been sheltered beneath their stained-glass wings in the city in the sky—until she murders one.
Hunted, she flees to the human desert below the floating city. Yet she’s not alone. Though he doesn’t know the crime she’s running from, Vito, the dragon Ava serves, refuses to abandon her to the harsh world of humans. Paired to be her master and she his caretaker, their friendship has always meant more than titles.
The desert holds no sanctuary for them. The long-suffering ground dwellers are tired of having their water supply monopolized by the dragons above and want all dragon-kind dead—including Ava and Vito. Surrendering to the dragons isn’t an option with Vito by her side, and the rebellion has offered a tempting deal. They will keep Ava alive and hide her crime, but only if she reveals the weaknesses of dragon-kind and the secrets of her city. Ava must choose between her life and everything she once called home—including Vito, the closest thing to family she has left.
Prompt call time! Give me your prompts, and I’ll take every last one and work it into a short story. This time, the theme is OCEAN! (Because this heatwave has murdered me and I wish I were a mermaid at this point.) Anything goes: ideas, words, pictures, poetry, music, whatever you can throw at me. You don’t have to follow the theme, it’s just a nudge to get your brain juices flowing. Otherwise, the general rules apply:
- You can prompt at any point in time, on any social media where I lurk (like on these posts on Insta, Twitter, and Tumblr), but if it might get worked into the next story if it’s later.
- You can give me as many prompts as you like—just pretty please keep it within reason.
- Keep prompts PG-13, and nothing offensive.
- By giving me prompts, you’re giving me the honor to do whatever I’d like with them in/with my stories as my content. Prompts themselves remains to whoever owns them.
For more info, stories, and custom stories, check out the project page. And if you want to support this project, consider giving me a coffee on Ko-Fi?
Now, hit me with those prompts! And look forward to the story written with last theme’s prompts going live tomorrow!!!
As always, the amazing background art was done by Blue!
You guys gave me the WEIRDEST array of prompts for the first open story, what even. XD I had a blast writing it, though, so hopefully you enjoyed reading it! And those dragon prompts—everyone knows me too well, I’ve become predictable. Also remember that I’m still taking prompts for the next story, and the prompt theme is SUMMER! (You can check out this post for more info, but feel free to prompt here.) Anyhow, here’s all the prompts!:
- My prompt is a colony of space dragons – Louise
- A dragon-powered spaceship – Moo
- A space mermaid @alliepennauthor
- Hot dog constellation @idkmanthatgirl
- Cat planet @idkmanthatgirl
- Lesbians @rosieethor
- Space eggs!!! @sarah_ahiers
- Space balls! @sdeoul
- Space food for vegans – @msletran
- Space dragons @everqueen12
- VY Canis Majoris, but sentient (hhhhhhh she’s just… I’m a big, big fan). @telari
- Giant space leeches? Giant space leeches. @telari
- A habitable bundle of dead giant space leeches. @telari
If you prefer a different medium, this story’s also up on Instagram and Tumblr (and there’s a Tweet for this post)! You can also find out more about the project, past stories, and how to get your own custom stories on this page. And if you’re enjoying the project and want to support it, consider dropping me a Ko-Fi?
See you guys in two weeks for the next story!
So I did an ask meme on Tumblr last week where people could send me prompts, and I would write a story from them. I made a graphic version of the one I wrote for “Neon lights at 1:30am,” because I like procrastinating. Anyway, it’s been a hot minute since I posted here, so I thought maybe some peeps might be interested. :)

First off, I’m sorry I haven’t been around here and posting new Bacon Typo posts. It’s been a really rough winter, and as my self-confidence seems to have taken a permanent vacation, I haven’t been able to write or edit that much. However, I’ve scraped myself up off the ground and I’m now working on a few exciting and secret things involving visual novels, podcasts, graphic novellas, and more, so I’m sprucing up the site! Which includes, without any further ado, new covers for both Prompted and The Curious Tale of the Starry-Eyed Princess!!!
Prompted’s illustration done by the wonderful Telari—who I’ll be working with more, and soon!
So, what do you guys think? They were a blast to make, and I really like how they came out! My next project announcement should be coming soon… ;)
