Excerpt
Spark and Miss Buttergrow are deep within his little cave.
The fireplace is burning with its mystic glow of familiarity.
 
You can sense it.  The air doesn’t smell the same.  Almost rot like. Yes, the evil is even encroaching on the little home, overpowering the Magickal rain. Soon, there will be nothing left.
 
“I want to help, but I don’t know much beyond my lake-pond,”
said Spark.
 
“It’s ok! We can start out slow, and easy.  The important thing is that we do start!” Miss Buttergrow reassured.”

“You, believe it or not, are inextricably linked to this the whole demise of the our land.  But this is a great thing, because you are so essential a link at in how we are going to restore everything!  It has to do with a certain portion that you have in your possession!”
 
“GET OUT!! GGGEEETTTT OUT!!!!!! YOU CAN’T HAVE IT!! I HAVE PLENTY IN THE INSECT WORLD WHO HATE ME. I WILL HAVE THEM KILL YOU!!! NEVER COME BACK!!!” the enraged Spark commanded.
 
“Nnnooww S s s pppaa a arrkkk… I assure you, I bring you no harm, and can do Magick! See!” All of a sudden, a swirl of different colored bubbles filled the air.

Horror in the World…

Comments 4 Standard

“An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.”
– Mahatma Ghandi

Hello,

I hope that this day finds you both sane and well.

I couldn’t just sit, and watch idly by, while these despicable acts go on around me.

It’s very difficult to put into words, what it is that I am feeling, right now.

Not everyone will agree with what I am saying here, and nor would I expect them to.

There is absolutely no excuse for any of it. The senseless killing. The rioting. The looting. The destruction of property.

Please stop it. I know that people are angry, but this doesn’t make any sense and it doesn’t do anybody any good.

The stories of Pazzaria Productions are about hope, togetherness, magick (Yes. That is spelled correctly.), creativity, acceptance and love.

I wrote them to be a positive beacon and to add something a bit different, fun, quirky and altogether wonderful, to the conversation.

As an artist, when I see stuff like this go on in the world, it saddens
me greatly.

I am immediately moved to ask myself – “What is it that I can do?”

If I might be able to help a soul heal, with my work, then I would really love to try and do that.

Instead of destroying, I have decided to add something to the greater good.

Please accept this free Apple Book and accompanying music of “The Legend of the Lost Rose”.

You Can Fly, You Can Fly, You Can Fly!

Chapter 13 A Highlight North Hamilton Press

Please enjoy this excerpt from Daniel L Rappaport’s Apple Book – The Legend of the Lost Rose.


“The motley group continued to fly over awesome volcanoes and grand mountain ranges made of dried, black molten lava showing all different sizes and shapes.
 
They saw flocks of dragons, rainbow parrots, and even some fish that learned how to fly quite high.
 
“This is the most beauty that I have ever seen in life,” said Spark.
 
“You ain’t seen nothin’ yet, kid!” said Prince.
 
Far, and long into the distance, one wide open space after another did they see.
 
Some brilliant hues of reds, oranges and yellows. Others, deep purples, and bright greens.
 
“Is that the grand, Noble Fir tree that is AIR’s center?”
asked Spark.
 
“Indeed, it is!” answered Miss Buttergrow.
 
This could be seen even from within the outermost boundaries
of FIRE.
 
“We are getting closer! PRESS ON!” commanded the Prince.
“Yeeeee haaaaawwww!!!”

Snow Crevette and the Evil Kids

Excerpt From: Daniel L Rappaport & Patricia Gresham. “The Legend of the Lost Rose.” North Hamilton Press. Apple Books. https://books.apple.com/us/book/the-legend-of-the-lost-rose/id836967197

They land and then, from out of nowhere, the ground opens up, and the whole team falls. They end up in a gigantic cave. It was oddly sweet smelling, with colorful tapestries lining the walls.

They appeared to depict the history of AIR, and how the elves lived. Apparently, they are quite proud of this.

There were also huge bags full of cookies, that looked like they had mail markings on them.

“This must be the place where they ship those delicious cookies!” exclaimed the Apovil.

“Really? I thought it was the factory of the toilet screws,” Rocky said out of turn.

“Really? I thought it was the factory of the toilet screws,” Rocky said out of turn.

“You know, Rocky, just because you can’t keep up with me…” said the Apovil.

“Kids, kids! This is no way to get anywhere! I demand to speak to someone with authority, this instant!” commanded Prince.

Suddenly, a rather queer looking elf showed himself in the form of a hologram in front of the tapestries.

“Yyyyyeeeeesssssss, my dears?” said he.

“Where are we? And why are we here?” asked Prince.

“You, too too looos, are inside one of the most important places in AIR. The cookie, pookie, parookie, room!”

Huh? The crew all had confused looks on their faces.

BALOSH!

The hologram had turned into none other than Crevette!
She appeared as herself and not a hologram.

“Is this your idea of starting your evil ways yet AGAIN?! And, when LIGHT is at its most dire?!” said a very exasperated Prince.

“I knew that you would be drawn here. So I trapped you. Big deal. Now, if you don’t give me what I want, I and every elf in AIR will have your lives.”

“And what is that?”

“The Blue Pixie Dust!”

Is He Evil?

Comments 2 Standard

Excerpt From
The Legend of the Lost Rose Interactive Apple Book
by Daniel L Rappaport & Patricia Gresham
http://bit.ly/The_Legend_of_the_Lost_Rose

“Huge. Horrible. Very scary. We wouldn’t necessarily categorize the Apovil as being outright evil though. Merely misunderstood, as most so called evil creatures are.

Ironically, this beast is named as a cross between the ancient Egyptian Apophis and the word evil, thus getting Apovil.

Today, he is quite large, measuring several thousand feet long, and several hundred feet in girth. He isn’t totally physical in form, and is mostly a mist, only loosely representing a snake. In this form, he has the ability to move anywhere with ease. He can gather himself to be seen in the physical realm, but does not do so often.

He represents a dragon-like shape, with snakes for hair, in a Medusa style, and can change color as easily as a chameleon.

When LIGHT was first being created, the Apovil was there. He was quite young then, and was born out of the same energies that created LIGHT. At one time, he had the entire planet all to himself. He could sing the days on by, while flying through large, lush valleys of beautiful flowers.

As the years passed, since he was born of creation, he learned that he could create.

Indeed, he did get lonely.  So he created creatures.  Bird-like, reptilian, water beings, unicorns, dragons, faeries, mammalians, etc.  Even similar mist-like beings such as he.  These fell into various sexes, as more than simply male and female were explored.

“There were transgenders, gay, lesbian, and even bisexual folk of all kinds. This made the world rich, and harmonious.
 
Oh, these beings were similar to those of Earth, but designed wholly differently.
 
There may have been male lions without manes, horses with spikes instead of tails, and butterflies ten times the size of those found
on Earth.
 
And, of course, roses. Millions, and millions of roses. This very much fueled the power of the land as it does today, only to a far greater magnitude. This pleased the Apovil. And one may think that due to progress, innovation and the like destroying most of them, that this is the very reason as to his anger.
 
Far from it! As it his anger goes much deeper than this, and quite literally!
 
Now, the Apovil is thousands of years old. The energies he is using to create his disappearing feats and other miracles of horror he has to get from the land, for that is what the rules of The Rose of Life state. He is enraged because he doesn’t like doing this. It frustrates him to no end, and he would far rather be self-sufficient.”

Spark the Flying Frog

Leave a comment Standard

Today, I proudly present a section from our Apple Interactive Book – Spark the Flying Frog.

This is part two of “The Lost Rose” series.

Enjoy!

“Hexeba, darling, count with me, and push. One. Two. Three! That’s it!

I see a….. wing?

Oh, he’s so cute! Push one last time!”, encouraged Michigan.

“You are joking? There’s nothing left of me to push with!”, said Hexeba.”

Now, Hexee, count with me. Breathe deeply. You can do this!

One Tttwwwwooooo! Thre…”

Suddenly, a small baby frog, about the size of a prune, came whizzing out, and very fast.

It was flying all about the room, and didn’t know where to go! Upon exit from the womb, there was a gigantic spark of magick dust that exploded.

“That’s it! We will call him Spark!”, announced an amazed Hexeba. “Hexee, dear, are you o.k.?”

“Just fine. I’m in a little pain, but, I will be o.k. We need to catch Spark!”

She made a spell.

“With a little help from the God, and the Goddess on this fine day, stop my beloved Spark before he goes away. So mote it be!” Spark slowed down, and landed in her lap.


Behold, and welcome to Ferrice, which is in the country of GLOW, on the continent of AIR, in the Wiccan world of LIGHT. Michigan is an older male frog, and Hexeba is an older fairy. How old? Old enough. This is the first time that a flying frog has ever been born. For all anyone knows, it may very well be the last. Chances to have children are growing thinner, and thinner as time goes on.

These fair, and wholly innocent creatures live by a humble lake-pond, in a hole in the ground. It is here that they can hop, and fly freely to catch flies, and participate in faery circles that do a 
great bidding.

Little do Hexeba and Michigan know that our little Spark will play a great role in a restoration that is to happen to LIGHT, as time wares on. But, for today, there is cause for celebration.

“Open the blasted doors!” shouted Prince.

The doormen watched in complete dismay, as they flew up into the sky in a most majestic fashion.

“Rocky, do you know how to get to the Rose?” asked Spark.

“I am not too sure as I have never seen it myself.”

“It is right at the very tip, top of LIGHT. It is right where FIRE, and AIR intersect. If you head north from wherever we are, you are bound to run right into it.”

“Prince, did you bring a compass?” asked Rocky.

“Yes. Navigation is one of my strong suits!

“Whatever,” yawned a bored Miss Buttergrow.

“What are we to do for food?” asked Rocky.

“I brought along with me enough money to buy whole food farms if we need to. Don’t worry. We will all eat like, well, me, on
this journey of journeys!”

“As spoiled as he may be, he is good to have around.”
laughed Petite.”

Trail That Trailer!

Leave a comment Standard

Welcome to this! Our trailer for “A Magical B.T.S.”!

Pazzaria TV is a subsidiary line of business under the larger banner of Pazzaria Productions.

Here, we are currently featuring our opening show called…

“A Magical B.T.S.” B.T.S. stands for “Behind the Scenes”.

In essence, it is going to discuss how we do what we do….

How, in particular, Pazzaria Productions “creates the magic”, if you will.

And, magic, WE WILL CREATE!

In addition to the lessons, there will be a bit of magic illusionism worked into the episodes. In order for you to find out how said trick was done, YOU HAVE TO WATCH THE NEXT EPISODE!

There is no release timeline. Sorry, folks. At least, not yet, in these early stages. Once we get our footing, we will be able to be more consistent with it.

We are aiming for a good 5-10 times a month. We will see.

Please enjoy!

The Wizard Coven

Leave a comment Standard

“There is a coalition, or a coven, of the five mystic wizards that form our high command. They are as follows :

Grenadiya. He is an older wizard, and is the protector of the group. His clothing is typically dark; thick bear skins, dark green velvet pants, and leather boots. He wears a long, golden necklace of the ages and a black Astrakhan style hat. His powers lie in the protective and military style energies.

Kabire. She is a sorceress who has been around for a very long time. However she often appears as a younger person, who’s in their thirties. Her Magickal tradition stems from the same energies that formed the ancient Japanese dance theater of Kabuki and the mysteries of the vampire. This is evident with her very long red fingernails, jet black hair and gothic, clown-like markings on her face. Due to this, her strengths lie in the power of
deception.

Lazul. So named after the gorgeous stone, Lapis Lazuli. The description of the stone describes this wizard exactly. It’s a stone of universal truth and friendship. It brings about harmony in relationships, with the wearer being an authentic person. “If you are seeking spiritual development, this stone is powerful and purifies the thoughts and the soul. So too lies Lazul’s powers.

Ariel. This wondrous character uses his immense wisdom to hold the group together. He is often giving out short bits of intelligent and timely information to get them through difficult situations. Sometimes, one might think that he is only out for himself. However, in the end, his decisions really are the best for LIGHT.

Morgana. Ahh, this is an alluring sorceress with quite a history! At one time she was very evil, but has changed her ways to join the high command. For some odd reason, she can be quite bumbling as well. There are times when she will magickally pop into someone’s closet. When the door is opened, she proudly states that she needs that doorknob for her collection!

Indeed, she is a complex one, but we love her!

Meet Iris Buttergrow!

Comments 6 Standard

Iris Buttergrow is a very caring and sweet faery. She knows magick and is willing to teach it to Spark, who is our hero.

She is friends with The Wizard Coven, and can see into the future, far beyond her years.

In our epic, fantasy Apple Book, “The Legend of the Lost Rose”, she plays a key component to getting Spark out of his little frog hole, and out into the world, so that it can be saved.

Some of the amazing magick that she teaches him are how to make bubbles appear, out of thin air and how to make an apple tree grow.

She is also aware of a secret elixir, that is key to saving the planet. This is three stories deep, within Spark’s home. He has no idea that this even exists.

The go off on grand and epic adventures together!
