First off - a HUGE shout-out to my KF colleagues Gemma and Christie for hitting the New York Times Bestseller List!!! It's so exciting! It'll be interesting to see who will be next...
As some of you know, I'm working on a collection of short stories featuring Bombays past. I'm calling it SNUFF THE MAGIC DRAGON, AND OTHER BOMBAY BEDTIME STORIES. Awesome title, right?
So the first story is called "Bombay - The First Bombay." It features an orphaned sixteen year old girl (not a kid in those days - practically long in the tooth) named Bombay living on the island of Crete in ancient Greece who takes on the very first assassination assignment. Well, not the first assassination assignment ever - just the first contract for the Bombay Family.
I've got three other stories fleshed out. But I need your help. What historic eras or historic assassinations would you like to see in this collection? I'd like to have 10 in total. Here are a few other ideas:
Bethlehem Bombay (Beth) - biblical times - specializes in those bastard Pharisees
Macedonia Bombay (Mace) - Ancient Rome and secret mastermind behind Caesar's assassination
Castile Bombay (Not sure he needs a nickname) - Middle Ages in Europe - Assigned to snuff the magic dragon terrorizing a village.
I was thinking of doing something with the Inquisition - but that seems a bit dark - even for me. Oh, and vote on the three covers above - or tell me to come up with something completely different. Ignore the fuzziness - I haven't purchased the stock photos yet.
I can't wait to see what you come up with...
