The Mechanical Bird was my #nanowrimo2016
novel. I'm still working on it, but I started to post it on Wattpad Account
The Mechanical Bird is set in a fantasy world where two countries, Maedrelleden and Vergenstat have gone to war. The king has conscripted the men and the women are given a larger role in society. Alicia Reynard is a farmgirl who comes to the city of Aeterall to attend the university. She dreams of flight and wants to build the world's first flying carriage. Elena Singleton is a noblewoman who has a deep love of mathematics and wants to build an analytical engine.
The story is kinda steampunk and fantasy all rolled together. If you give it a read on Wattpad, vote for it. I'd love to hear your opinion of it. I'm going to try and finish the story and shop it around.
This cover mixes together a map I did of their fantasy world with some old artwork I did of Alicia's flying carriage (i.e. airplane). I converted everything to vector in Inkscape and composed this cover for Wattpad.
