100-word wonders: Song Caster

Hey. Syawn here.I’ve started a weekly challenge for my author. It’s a good way to keep her on track. This challenge will be to write exactly 100 words on whatever subject I’m wondering about at the time, every Tuesday.

Why Tuesday? she asks. Because today is Tuesday, and I’ll not let her put it off for one more day. Why whatever subject you’re wondering about? What about subjects I’m wondering about? the author asks, affronted. Because if I let her pick, she would be all day dithering between one musing and another. Why 100 words precisely? she asks. Because I said so. Why “Song Caster”? Because I was once again paid off, and this is the day my dear friend Will Scarlet’s author debuts the cover of The Song Caster, forth and best-yet of her Wilderhark tales. Since a picture is worth a hundred words (Shhhh… let’s say it’s 100 words) I’ll go ahead and reveal the cover in its full glory…

So that was that. Any words on the tale inside, Tirzah? Or more precisely, 100 words?


The Song Caster features  Benedeck (the luckless prince of Stone Kingdom’s princess-and-the-pea rendition,) led by the incorrigible minstrel in blue in on a quest for true love and a backbone.

Gant-o-the-Lute is a wandering bard based initially on Jack (of “and the beanstalk” fame), but as readers of The Seventh Spell will already know, he is so much more than that… but will this last adventure make too much of him?

The fey tale hums with musicality, tingles with the thrill Lute takes in life. It rings with the danger of limitless power’s corruption—and with that greatest power, love.


And there you have it. For the official release (and more words on the matter) check out Ever On Word.



  1. “Worth every under-the-table penny,” says Will Scarlet, winking at Sy. “Author and minstrel are beaming with gratification. Thanks for joining in the cover-revealing celebration, Ink Caster peeps!”
