The Freaks are unleashed

I have been looking forward to the release of Freaks for some time, and now the day is finally here.

A collection of short fiction by the lovely Nik Perring and Caroline Smailes with illustrations by Darren Craske it looks to be a treat to my story and comic loving self.

So I’m super happy to have this little sneak peak of some of the wonders inside…….

Invisible 

[Super Power: The ability to make oneself unseen to the naked eye]

 

If I stay totally still,

if I stand right tall,

with me back against the school wall,

close to the science room’s window,

with me feet together,

pointing straight,

aiming forward,

if I make me hands into tight fists,

make me arms dead straight,

 if I push me arms into me sides,

if I squeeze me thighs,

stop me wee,

if me belly doesn’t shake,

if me boobs don’t wobble,

if I close me eyes tight,

so tight that it makes me whole face scrunch,

if I push me lips into me mouth,

if I make me teeth bite me lips together,

if I hardly breathe,

if I don’t say a word.

Then,

I’ll magic meself invisible,

and them lasses will leave me alone.
