Sunday Short Stories is a weekly Random (because New Bebe) post that shares some of the best short stories out in the ‘verse. So grab a coffee, settle deep into your favorite chair, and enjoy the escape.
Today I am giving you something a little different; a true story. This is an enlightening article from Maptia, about The Kingdom of Bantar Gebang. Sometimes we need to give a little- money, time, a re-tweet about a good cause- whatever you can do, and this story needs to be shared. If you are so inclined, follow Maptia, as they produce astounding photo-stories and will give you so much more knowledge of places around the world.
This next item is a shameless plug for my new writing project, The Cunning Crow. If you love reading Fantasy and Sci-Fi you might like this! It is a fantasy fan-fic Newspaper, reporting on fantastical news from a city hidden just outside Kamloops, BC. Please take a moment to go check it out!
Lastly, This is a re-telling of the Snow White story, which I rather liked, but, then again, who doesn’t like re-tellings of fairytales?
Happy Long Weekend woop woop! Its been a busy day here today with the release of my first writing/art project, The Cunning Crow. You can read the release I wrote about it here, but right now I am giving a “news release” for the paper.
I hope you enjoy my publication!
The Death March Migration for the Umbra area is August 30th – 31st.
The Death March Migration is studied by private and Government groups across the planet. Even with so many educated eyes on it, the migration is still not fully understood.
It is composed of mostly humanoid ghosts, but some four legged and flying Beings are seen within the progression. The common thread is that they are all endemic to the planet Earth. Every year they follow the same trail, called The Dissolution Trail in Canada, right around the Earth.
Rules and Guidelines for the Umbra region have been sent out to the public, and Issue 1 of the Cunning Crow also included a copy of the rules.
Look for Issue 2 of The Cunning Crow for an article with interviews from scientists in the field studying the Death March Migration and Government officials.
The writing/art project I have been working on for months now!
The Cunning Crow: Your best source of local, multiverse, and planetary news in Central British Columbia.
The Cunning Crow is a fantasy fan-fic creation, reporting on fantastical news from a city hidden just outside Kamloops, BC, called Umbra.
Included is a helpful guide Explanations to Help Understand the World (last page of publication), and citations/sources are HERE
I really hope you enjoy the world I have created! I aim to create a few of these papers, but it will take a while between each issue as I am still learning to write better and use Photoshop AND I have a new baby.
I have uploaded it to Issue, from there you can flip through it like a newspaper/magazine and even download it there!
If you would like to be SUPER AWESOME FABULOUS you can help support this publication by ordering art prints here. They are the ads that I created for the newspaper as stickers or art prints.
WRITE ON! ~ Trish

Ok, I am done my Fantasy world Newspaper and have begun the editing process, which, honestly, has been a lot of procrastinating for me. I just want to post it already, but every time I start working on it…. my brain stops working. I akin it to Homers focus. Side note: while looking for this picture I found someone had made an entire post of Homers thoughts, lol. Awesome.
Anyway, here’s the collection of teaser images I have posted here or on my Twitter, and hopefully soon you will be reading the finished product. I think I am going to make it JPG or PDF’s and load it onto Deviant Art for people to read/download. The Newspaper, The Cunning Crow, reports on the hidden magical (fairy-tale characters/legends/beasts/mythological beings, alt-Earths, Planets, etc) city from a location outside of Kamloops, British Columbia.
I’m going to have a cheat sheet for people so its not too confusing. It is rather hard to explain how things work via a newspaper, but I try really hard.
I seem to be moving at glacier speed while creating this side project, so I thought I would post a couple behind the scenes pictures and explain what it is I am making.
The Cunning Crow is a fan-fic Newspaper I started making, drawing from my favorite books and TV shows and reporting on them as if they were real. I have Gardening With Samwise Gamgee and Tool Care with Thor. Or, I just make up news that I think is cool, like Mountain Trolls causing trouble in B.C.
The Newspaper will be completely free, and just more of a passion project that I hope other nerds will love as much as I do.
I even made a classifieds section, and here are a couple ads, one promoting a Terraformed planet that Mimics actual places, like Vegas does. The other one is for Sophie’s Millinery, a shout out to Miyazaki.
The entire en-devour is to be creative, to push the imagination, create a fun world to slip into.
