Mayor May Not

Series: The ABCs of Spellcraft 11
Length: Novella, 30000 words
Cover artist: Jordan Castillo Price - see larger cover

$2.99 at many online retailers


Uncle Fonzo has always been cagey about what his duties as Hand of the Penn family actually entail. Dixon figures they mainly involve playing poker with other middle-aged Scriveners, while Yuri suspects there are semi-legal dealings under the poker table as well.

Whatever his typical responsibilities might be, Fonzo’s got his hands full with a new grandchild on the way. So when he’s tasked by the head of circuit to find Pinyin Bay’s next mayor, he passes on the burden—er, opportunity—to his favorite nephew.

No problem! Dixon doesn’t know much about Handless politics, but he’s sure he’s acquainted with plenty of folks who’d make a fine public official (meaning, someone who won’t obstruct Scrivener interests.) But when he and Yuri get to know the potential candidates a bit better, they discover each one is stranger than the last.

Can the boys find a Scrivener-friendly mayor before time runs out? Or will the worst possible candidate in Pinyin Bay win simply by default?

Support JCP's Audiobooks

fundraiser tee Audio production can be expensive for an independent author. My audio projects take months, sometimes years, to even recoup their production costs.

Audiobooks are pricy to make. I have considered Patreon and decided it would take too much of my time away from my broader readership. Instead, I've come up with some alternative ways you can support the project.

Fundraiser T-shirts - Buy a PsyCop or Spellcraft T-shirt or other merchandise. T-shirt sales funded nearly HALF the production cost of Skin After Skin. That's huge!

Tip Jar Tip Jar - The way audiobook distribution is currently structured, the author makes less per sale than the middlemen. Not all of my audios earn back their production costs. If you're loving the audios and receive hours of entertainment from them, consider dropping a few bucks in the tip jar. It will add up!

Monthly Donation - If you're so inclined, you can do this through the tip jar, too!

I’m the last guy in the world who cares about sports, whether we’re talking about the Cubs, Sox, Bulls or Bears, or for that matter anything even remotely athletic. So I was a little surprised when Jacob suggested that we take a trip downtown to go ice skating. But nowhere near as surprised as he was when I told him I thought it was a great idea.

What Jacob didn’t know was that I’d played pee-wee hockey the winter I was eleven. (I didn’t give a rat’s ass about hockey. I had a crush on the goalie.) And what I didn’t know was that the ice rink would look so cool after sunset. All the bare trees along Michigan Avenue had been wrapped in white Christmas lights, and the whole Chicago skyline blazed behind them. Millennium Park was insanely cold, but it was gorgeous.

Jacob must have figured out that I could skate before we even got out on the ice. Not only is he smart that way, but I’m about as easy to read as a billboard. Even so, he still spent more time checking me out than he did enjoying the scenery. It’s weird, the way he stares. He doesn’t stop when I catch him at it. He just smiles a little.
