My alternatives to the Disney princess Merida from “Brave”

There’s been a big online flap about Disney adding Merida from their movie “Brave” as a sexualized “grown-up” girl. Disney withdrew the new image.

This made me think about my own red-haired kick-ass mid-1800s heroine, Mary McCarthy. Here are the book covers.

. . .

Her face is conventionally pretty.  She chose this as a weapon in the male-dominated world of the UK in the mid-1800s. (A shapechanger, she can look as beautiful or scary as she wants.)

Her clothing in the first is a pretty walk-around dress, for she’s left a cultural event earlier in the evening.  In the second her costume and hair style is because she’s playing a mythical character to intimidate a radical gang.

In both she’s wielding laser claws or a laser sword. They can cut steel as easily as air. And air molecules, hence the blue color as the ions recombine.  (Built-in weapons; so convenient!)

“The Once-Dead Girl” now available

Wonder Woman as a teen learning her powers and taking baby steps toward fighting crime and disasters – that is the aim of The Once-Dead Girl.  Minus the silly swimsuit costume, Amazons, and Greek Gods.  (And the name, which is owned by DC Comics.)

All the other parts of the Wonder Woman myth are present in altered form.  For instance, instead of the really stupid bullet-bouncing bracelets she has a force field.

Amazon ebook, Barnes & Noble ebook

Shapechanger’s Progress excerpt added

I’ve added to this site an excerpt from Book Two of the Mary McCarthy trilogy, Shapechanger’s Progress. The book is mostly done, but I won’t publish it until I’ve finished Book Three, Shapechanger’s Destiny. Three is not plotted in complete detail, and I may have to make minor changes in Two to make them fit well together.

In Two Mary is still involved in the Org, though increasingly less so. She wants it to become independent of her so she can travel the world, possibly in new identities.

In the excerpt “Dame Edith” has started a publishing company. Mary in her Dr. McCarthy persona travels to England to induce literary lights to sell rights to their backlist titles to the company. This should be possible since the titles are no longer earning money and even an Irish publisher might bring in some miniscule funds.

She goes to a party put on by George Elliot. There Mary meets several authors, including Elliot, Charles Dickens, Dicken’s associate Colin Wilkie, and Benjamin Disraeli (an author as well as politician).

She also meets other influential people, including Barbara Bodichon and Sophia Jex-Blake. And Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell, the first female American medical doctor. That last meeting is to have a major impact on the history of the world.
