I posted chapters 2 and 3 of my steampunk novella Open, Charlie on Wattpad. In these chapters, Charlie stops her flight for a breather in Chicago. She is meeting new people and making new friends. The second chapter is here.
Eighteen-year-old Charlie is running away from her criminal stepfather, a New York gang boss. For five long years, he has been forcing her to use her magical abilities to open bank vaults and safe boxes. Charlie wants to escape his brutal rule but where in America would she be safe from his ruthless avarice?
The next couple chapters will have Charlie fly a dirigible. Watch for the announcement to the dirigibles’ schedules and routes here.
