We know that this year has been extremely difficult for the entire world.
We wanted to move forward with a positive outlook, with regard to how amazing and wonderful this country is.
No matter what the shenanigans of the stupid orange fürer, we are STILL in the United States of America, and can still practice many of our freedoms, with or without this clown at the helm.
We, here, at Pazzaria Productions are still able to grow, in the best way, and are very grateful for that.
We want to wish each and every one of you an amazing Fourth of July celebration, and are confident that, even though we are all socially distanced, that we can still remain strong, as a nation, and move forward through this time of turmoil with great zest and fervor.
In the spirit of keeping this short and sweet, this is all.
Lastly, because we ARE Pazzaria Productions, and we love to give, we would very much love to present to you, the complete works of North Hamilton Press, our publishing arm.
Enjoy. Stay safe. We love you all.
Happy Birthday America! May freedom always ring true in the hearts of all!
Please enjoy this excerpt from Daniel L Rappaport’s Apple Book – The Legend of the Lost Rose.
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.
In addition, here is an excerpt from our Apple Book, The Legend of the Lost Rose:
“Daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy!” said a grouping of what appeared to be about a ton of small frogs, as Spark and Petite walked through the door.
“We were brought from a pond, and were told that you will be our daddy! Is this true, daddy?!” This came out of a particular three of them. The rest just croaked.
“Remember that surprise?” said Petite.
Spark couldn’t believe it, and was welling up in tears. “How, in all of wondrous LIGHT did you ever know that I have always wanted children? And, where did they come from?!” asked an overly emotional Spark.
“Call it a gut instinct, and let’s just say that Miss Buttergrow, may she rest in peace, when she was alive, owed me a special favor.”
The Legend of the Lost Rose is an interactive touch screen fairy tale available on Apple and other venues. It is compatible with Apple products and was written by the owner and CEO Daniel L Rappaport, the creator of Pazzaria productions. This is my review below and I will also post it on Twitter. #fantasy#fairytaleTeam Pazzaria Productions
Legend of the Lost Rose Suggested reading and summary by Jane Hoffman
Spark is a flying frog with special artistic gifts that he uses to express the value of his world. He likes to paint pictures of bugs who were once his friend, wildlife, symbols of nature that add magic to his world. He embraces a simple life in which he would like to enjoy his intricate pleasures of painting, music, reading and collecting art history within his comfortable cave he has tailor made. As the story unfolds, he discovers he has been called to be instrumental in removing evil from the land he lives in called LIGHT based on enemy infiltration that desire the secrets of a rose with special juices that are rare and offer long life. Good forces have come into his life to warn him and teach him how to combat the dark elements. He magnetizes toward Miss Buttergrow, an older woman from the Rainbow World who teaches him how to assert his energy while protecting hidden gifts of energy in the Land of Light where he lives.
She had access to a powerful black vial that Apovil, the head of the dark energy and original ruler of the world, wants to possess along with his minions. Spark must stop Apovil from mustering his bad energy on the earth. It turns out that Apovil was in the land of LIGHT alone and he solely created all the creatures that now exist including fantasy creatures such as horses with spikes instead of tails and gigantic butterflies. Apovil created a mystical world of balance and beauty. He also is 1000 years old and is losing the powerful creative energy of his youth in which he once created thousands of roses to fuel the land. Throughout the 144 page story, Spark will learn on his journey how to create special magic sources from Mrs. Buttergrow.
His mission is to take the vial of blue moonlight magic to the oldest of the Grand Roses and fully restore the City of LIGHT. Spark was chosen by the prophets to accomplish this mission. Spark must move out of his comfort zone and expose himself to the world around him which will provide him growth and skills. The story has a lot of thought behind it and beautiful imagery. The underlying theme of the story is the forces of good and evil and the attempt to conquer evil through magick. (spelling from story) Apovil did not start using dark energy until his powers were shrinking and then he became predatory.
This book is available through Apple and can be ordered through Pazzaria Productions. There are touch screen elements in which you can order items from the story for your collection such as a box with a rose or a painting of a mansion.
Pazzaria Productions is bringing something entirely new and different to the world of entertainment.
This is the idea of “User Interactive Merchandise”. These are items that are either integral to a character’s plot, and/or move your own personal story forward, within our world.
As an example…. In Chapter 1 – “A Spark Full of Life!” of the epic Apple Book, “The Legend of the Lost Rose”, our hero, Spark the flying frog, is seen painting one of his usual masterpieces.
“Over the past year, a specialized area of interest has presented itself to Spark. He has heard about this “Grand Lost Rose”. It is the most revered flower in all of LIGHT. The juice, when extracted with special machines, is said to make one love everything, and live forever. The people whom have had this new type of rose are called the Roseela.
The flowers, nor the juice, are easy to come by. Due to the rose’s intense power, one cannot simply pick it. Even looking at them alive for more than a few minutes can stun a person. So they must be grown in ways that is are best for one’s health while attempting to preserve all of the benefits of this mysterious flower.
The cost is so high, that only a small handful of factories can produce the juice. And at that, even a smaller number of creatures living in LIGHT can afford it.
Of course, the purest of these flowers is the red rose. Medicinal potions are made from lesser flowers from different colors, but, these aren’t nearly as powerful.
This rose species is so special to Spark that he’s painted its likeness upon a keepsake box. In here, he keeps his most valuable treasures.”
Spark the Flying Frog is a combination of many different aspects of my life.
For one, he’s gay, as am I.
He’s a multi-media artist, as am I.
He flies. Sorry. I am still working on that one.
He has many aspects of my own personality, yet makes decisions that I wouldn’t always make.
In my humble opinion, he spends way too much time on his art. And yet, I am, as well, simultaneously jealous, as that is a key secret to his wide success.
He definitely likes to take control, in situations, as much as he possibly can.
When he starts to learn magick, at first he is apprehensive, as he is quite confused to the benefits, and how this would even help with his art making.
Yet, as time goes on, he realizes that it serves as an extremely important and valuable tool to saving the planet of Light.
I definitely wanted him to be faery like, yet not a faery.
This is where the wings come in.
The kind of frog that he meets is, as well, extremely intelligent. He, in fact, has a college degree. His name is Petite. Aside from the fact that he gets Spark out of an extremely precarious situation upon meeting, they two’s personalities merge and coalesce perfectly together.
Why a frog?
I think that the frog form is really interesting.
There aren’t a whole lot of stories where frogs are the heroes.
I kind of feel for this important race, and wanted to do it justice.
Perhaps you will feel a little bit differently about frogs, after experiencing my books?
North Hamilton Press Magically presents “The Lost Rose” series…
The planet that he resides on is called Light, and it is going under. The Apovil is just randomly flying through and smashing up the world’s towns. Nobody quite knows why.
Another theory, as to the planet’s untimely demise, is that there is a rose, who’s roots stretch all of the way around the planet. The rose, itself, stretches far north, from the planet’s surface, into the sky.
You kind of can’t really see it. It’s a conspiracy theory. You don’t really know it’s there, unless you know that it’s there.
The roots give the planet it’s life force. The roots are dying, and so is the planet along with it.
