As a writer, I find that there are very few tales that really reflect the reality of what it feels like to create worlds, tales, and realities from the perspective of the writer themselves.
“Lady Blackwing” does exactly that, through the discovery of a notebook and a pencil that change the life of a coffee shop barista. When a frustrated writer leaves his notebook and pencil behind, Mercedes tries to return them to him, and her world changes. The book band pencil seem to free up all the stories that she has inside, and her imagination becomes a thing of true power.
It’s refreshing to see how this story unfolds, and what goes through the mind of the protagonist as she realizes the power her writing has on the world. And isn’t that what all writers hope for, for their words to change the world around them, even if only in small ways?
This is a fantastic story, written by someone who truly appreciates the art of the short story, and understands the journey to becoming a writer. Who knows… maybe we’ll see Mercedes again some day, and she’ll have joined the ranks of those whose pencils made them famous…

I’ve really been into superheroes and strong heroines, and Mercedes (aka Lady Blackwing) is a unique one. I’ve always found the power of the mind and to shape our reality (so to speak) one of the greatest abilities for us as humans. The author brings this to light in a fun, upbeat, and fresh way. Great short story!

I received Lady Blackwing as an advanced reader copy in exchange for a fair and honest review of this science fiction mini. This was my first time reading any of Devorah’s books and I enjoyed this light fantasy very much.

Lady Blackwing is about a young barista, Mercedes, an interesting and kind character. She’s a hard worker, at school and at the coffee shop though she still enjoys making time for writing. After a strange but minor accident, she finds that she is able to control situations, and make them happen as she saw fit.

I found Devorah’s writing to be fresh and fun. I liked that the story was a quick read, and at the same time, I found myself wanting more! Well written and entertaining.
