As a result of Covid and quarantine, many authors are posting chapters online for free. This includes J.K Rowling as well. However, I discovered upon one author by the name of Lynn Leonard of Pix: Flight of the Phoenixes. I first discovered this person when browsing Reddit and coming across articles. One about how kids in a small town are wanting to spend more time with their dads because of a character, and another article about more black girls needed in the fantasy genre.
To my surprise, only one chapter has been released on the author's site. This author though has a small social media presecene, they (don't know their sex) is kind of already gaining ground.
Sooooooo the author posted a poll on their Twitter. The poll was if you lived in the world of Pixsoria (the main character of the book who is a 10 year old pixie), would you be a human, mutant (created by the humans and have super powers) or a spell caster (has magic abilities based around chakra within their enviornment. Ex: witch, pixie, wizard, fairy, elf, vampire, werewolf, etc).
It was no surprised mutant came first but then to my surprise human came in second. Humans in this world, are supposed to be really good at technology. With almost 1000 people voting, it was a mind freak so many wanted to be human! Why wouldn't one want have magic?
