Abededarium of Demise: The Letter L


Lackadaisical Lilly was cruel to her boyfriend, Larry.
Lilly laughed at him and told him that she loved only Harry.


Lilly was a luscious flirt, and a promise she never would keep.
Larry put an end to her lunacy when he pushed her from Lover's Leap.

I have made my illustrated poem "On a Windy Night Ludmila the Clown Went Missing" available on blurb. It features 30 original artworks.
Preview here

A couple weeks ago when I first read about Jody and the Jellyfish, I was confused. Now that I get it, I look forward to Thursday mornings. These would make a great book!

I can't wait to see what the letter "P" will bring…

There is always a funny and clever death to start my Thursdays!

You made me laugh aloud, again!

Although I don't believe in violence, I don't feel too bad for Lilly LOL.

Julie, you put a smile on my face each Thursday!
I previewed the book! What a wonderful give away and special gift this is. I'm glad to know about your book. Now I want to know what happened to Ludmila.

Christy said...

I should have my girls read what can happen when you are a flirt!

Kass said...

Yes, the Ludmila book is a page-turner. Don't just try to win it, other commenters. Buy it! I did, and I don't regret it.

So Lilly fell to L...sorry, couldn't resist.

Julie, I want to know what happened to Ludmilla too. Hopefully she did not meet up with someone like Larry. But, knowing how these alphabet posts go, I am not holding my breath for a happy ending.

lissa said...

another great demise and sadly, I can see this happening in real life

thanks for your visit to my alphabe-thursday

Brenda said...

You are an awesome illustrator, and I know that because my daughter is an illustrator. But she does not write and needs an author. She has a print to give away on her blog http://lizseelye.blogspot.com/ Thanks for coming by! I hope to win a copy of your book!

Mary Beth @ Live. Laugh. Make Something said...

I would expect nothing Less....

Jo said...

and at lover's leap ... you just make me laugh ... I can only look forward to next week with anticipation!

RNSANE said...

Larry lost Lilly -
But soon he may swing,
Now maybe his deed,
Was a foolhardy thing!

Jenny said...

Oh Julie.

First of all Blurb shipped my book and I'm sending it off to you right away to be autographed.

I kept looking ahead and looking ahead and wanting to cheat and skip forward to your L link.

But I was good and waited patiently.

And, as always. I am never, ever disappointed.

You are really, really amazing Miss Julie!

L is for luck...which I had a lot of when I happened to meet you in blogland!

A+

Kimberly said...

What a great imagination! I love your etsy store. I could barely leave...with so many goodies! I love, love, love the masks!

Steph said...

Okay, are you writing another book on the sly... "How to Leave (Eliminate) Your Loser Lover: an Alphabetical Approach."?

You are an incredible artist.

I want to know what happened to Ludmilla.

Amanda said...

You really shouldn't toy with a man's affections -- it rarely turns out well...

Nadeen said...

Too bad Lover's Lane wasn't around instead of Lover's Leap. Mighta had a happier ending....
