OUROBOROS

Book 2 of The Circuit Fae

COMING MARCH 27, 2018

Return to the world of the Circuit Fae

                                      ______________________________

Syl’s a princess of the fair Fae.

Her girlfriend Rouen is a princess of the dark Fae.

Mortal enemies. Girlfriends.

Relationship status: It’s Complicated

All introverted geek girl Syl Skye wants is to get close to her girlfriend. But when you can kill with a simple touch, a normal date night’s not really in the cards. As it happens, Syl is also a sleeper-princess of the fair Fae. Last year after a freak accident, her power Awakened, granting her white flame to purify the darkness.

Rouen Rivoche is that darkness—a dark Fae princess whose power to bewitch mortals is as terrifying as the violet lightning she controls. Rouen is Syl’s total opposite. Her mortal enemy.

She’s also Syl’s beloved girlfriend.

And even though they joined forces to defeat the evil Circuit Fae who harnessed the killing magic in technology to take over the school…that was so last year.

Now, Syl’s touch could mean Rouen’s death. Her increasing power is spiraling out of control, threatening to burn down everything she and Rouen have built together.

Their lives, their love, their very world.

Circuit Fae 2: Ouroboros Pinterest Boards!

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

Hello, my pretties!

Summer is in full swing, and it’s almost time for the Circuit Fae 2: Ouroboros cover reveal on July 25th! You can still sign up here, if you haven’t already.

And don’t forget to preorder your copy!

I’ve also taken to Pinterest (and lost many, many hours) perusing the art there for inspiration. After a long, arduous search, my latest boards :

Syl Skye

Syl is the primary heroine in The Circuit Fae series. A sophomore in high school at the start of Moribund, she’s really a sleeper-princess of the fair Fae–a mortal girl who has fair Fae blood that has yet to be Awakened.

Then she meets Rouen, the dark Fae princess-assassin who’s out to kill all sleeper-princesses, and Syl’s life goes from normal to crazy-town.

No one ever said love was perfect.

 

Euphoria/Rouen Rivoche

Rouen Rivoche aka Euphoria is the secondary heroine/villainess of The Circuit Fae series. A dark Fae princess-turned-assassin, she’s on the hunt to kill sleeper-princesses in Moribund. But her life is turned upside-down when she meets Syl. 

Rouen finds herself drawn to Syl’s bravery and courage, and decides to help her Awaken her fair Fae powers. Now, Rouen finds herself at odds with her own dark Fae people. 

Will Rouen find the strength to fight for love, or will she be forced to kill the girl she loves most? 

 

Fiann Fee

Fiann Fee is the primary villainess of Circuit Fae: Ouroboros. Once Syl’s bff, Fiann has swiftly become Syl and Euphoria’s most deadly rival. She was a whole heap of trouble in Moribund, and now she’s back, badder than ever, with a scheme to steal Euphoria’s dark Fae birthright and make herself Queen of Dark Faerie.

Will she succeed in stealing control of the dark Fae hearthstone and turning every dark Fae man, woman, and child into her Circuit Fae servants, or can our two heroines stop her in time?

 

Aldebaran

Aldebaran is the Prince of the fair Fae and the first Fae of the Summer Court that Syl meets. The consummate golden prince, he’s suave, handsome, and powerful. But a deadly secret lairs beneath his perfect golden beauty. Can Syl and Euphoria discover it before he tears them apart?

 

Go have a peek-see.

Moribund FREE Sampler is Here!

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

Visit Amazon, Kobo, B&N, or Google Play to get a FREE sneak peek at the first three chapters of Circuit Fae: Moribund, which blends angsty YA romance with the urban fantasy world of the Fae, where two girls who should be mortal enemies fall in love.

Dark Fae. Romance. Evil Plots. High school.

Our heroines could be in for the greatest adventure ever.

​If only they could decide whether to kill or kiss each other. 

High school sophomore Syl Skye is an ordinary girl. At least, she’s trying to be. School photographer and all-around geek, she introverts hard and keeps her crush on sexy-hot glam-Goth star Euphoria on the down-low. But when a freak accident Awakens her slumbering power, Syl is forced to accept a destiny she never wanted—as the last sleeper-princess of the fair Fae.

Suddenly hunted by the dark Fae, Syl’s pretty sure things can’t get any worse. Until she discovers her secret crush, Euphoria, is really a dark Circuit Fae able to harness the killing magic in technology. Even worse, she’s been sent to destroy Syl.

With mean girls and magic and dark Fae trying to kill her, it’ll take more than just “clap if you believe in fairies” to save Syl’s bacon—not to mention, her heart.

Rouen’s Moribund Playlist

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

One of the things I do while writing is listen to music. And for each project, I have a different sound, a different feel that helps me get into the mood of the characters, the setting, the world. For my lesbian epic fantasy, I listened to a lot of sweeping movie scores like Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, Lord of the Rings, and a lot of Two Steps From Hell, who do epic-sounding fighty music.

I wanted Circuit Fae to have a different feel, more fluid and wild, more modern and angsty. The Circuit Fae playlists had to capture the exhilaration of falling in love, the angst of wondering if she feels the same way, the pain of being separated. Plus, it had to capture the Fae themselves—the dark Fae of the Winter Court, cold and merciless; and the fair Fae of the Summer Court, fiery and passionate.

So I started making Pandora stations and playlists of my own. I added to them every week. Now, my main Circuit Fae playlist is over eight hours. It contains music from Sia to Siouxsie, from Lindsey Stirling to Halsey.

I wanted every playlist to seethe with emotion. Especially Rouen’s.

Rouen is the Villainess who starts off trying to kill the Heroine, but eventually teams up with her. Rouen’s got a lot of baggage and sometimes scolds herself for being too broody and emo. A dark Fae princess, she’s been stripped of her birthright for daring to speak out against the males in her dark Faerie homeland, UnderHollow.

As punishment, she’s forced to be a Huntress of the Wild Hunt under the command of the Big Bad, the Huntsman. So she’s got every right to be emo.

The true Rouen playlist has over a hundred songs, but I’ve chosen these ten specifically for you, my pretties. Enjoy all the emo goodness!

Until next time, slán go fóill!

I’m overwhelmed by your amazing response to the Moribund cover reveal and back cover copy! Since then, I’ve been getting a lot of questions, the most frequent “But, GIE, why is the wait for Moribund so loooooong?”

Now, I’m a fellow reader as well as an author, and I know how tough it can be waiting it out for a book release. (I’m tearing through Sarah J. Maas’s A Court of Wings and Ruin as we speak.)

I want you to know that I hear you, loud and clear!

So, Monster House and I have decided to release the Moribund Sampler for free! That’s right, the first three chapters of Moribund absolutely free. Not to mention, three months early. Woohooo!

I’ll be posting links to the Sampler as soon as I have them.

Meanwhile, you can:

  • Add the Moribund Sampler to your “To Read” shelf on Goodreads

  • Add the full version of Circuit Fae 1: Moribund to your “To Read” shelf on Goodreads

  • Add the full version of Circuit Fae 2: Ouroboros to your “To Read” shelf on Goodreads

  • Lock in your full copy of Moribund, releasing on September 12, 2017

Thanks so much for your support!

Until next time, slán go fóill!

What Makes a Pro?

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

In my role as an author and editor, I am often asked, what do I consider to be the hallmarks of a professional writer? How do you tell the pros from the amateurs? And most importantly, how do you become a pro?

So, I’ve compiled this non-exhaustive-but-pretty-darn-close list based on my personal experiences and interactions on both sides of the publishing industry—author side and editor side.

Being a professional writer means:

  • Being creative when you’re down or sick or hungover or having a bad day.
  • Pushing words onto the page even when they suck. A pro writer knows you can’t edit a blank page.
  • Setting daily goals. Butt + chair = productivity
  • Meeting daily goals. Pros create a habit of writing, and the notion that pro writers spend all their time surfing the internet is largely inaccurate.
  • Writing in the small spaces– in the checkout line, in the bathroom, at an Idina Menzel concert, any time an idea strikes you.
  • Not really understanding those memes like “If you make me mad I’ll put you in a book and kill you.” Good writing is not about petty grudges.
  • Working a job to support your writing career. If you’re writing to “make money,” you’re going about it all wrong.
  • Getting up early and staying up late to make your daily word count.
  • Never getting to level 80 in World of Warcraft.
  • Realizing that “perfect” is the enemy of “good.” You can only obsess over a single word or phrase for so long before the ratio of impact vs. decline in productivity shifts out of your favor.
  • Reading, reading, reading. How can you write in your genre when you don’t read in your genre?
  • Accepting that you’ll be months, if not years, behind in watching the latest TV shows.
  • Being able to take and implement criticism. Treat your book like your baby, but let it get skinned knees, let it play in the dirt. It’ll be stronger for it.
  • Always seeking to hone your craft.
  • Being respectful of other writers and celebrating their successes. One writer’s success does not take away from yours. Leave your jealousy at the door.
  • Accepting that you can’t predict the market. Boy wizard? Sparkly vampires? Who knew? Answer: no one. So write what you’re passionate about.
  • Accepting that house-cleaning will probably have to wait.
  • Plotting, plotting, plotting. Plotting some more.
  • Pantsing at least a little. Even the most strict plotline needs wiggle room for magic to happen.
  • Revision, revision, revision.
  • Being humble and gracious. Without the agents, editors, readers, crit partners, bloggers, reviewers, etc, you wouldn’t be where you are.
  • Realizing there’s no one path to success. You can take every single step JK Rowling did and still not end up at Hogwarts. Own your path. Take whatever it brings and make the most of it.
  • Knowing when to take a break and step back. Writing at the cost of friendships or family isn’t healthy. Know when to unplug.
  • Giving back to the writing community. At some point, someone probably gave you a chance, an opportunity, a critique, a kind word, a good review, an “in.” When it’s your turn, give one back.
  • Making informed choices about your writing. Pro writers know when they’re breaking the rules and why.
  • Realizing you are your reputation and much of that comes from how you portray yourself on the internet. Maintain your integrity in your dealings with everyone.
  • Putting your writing over your hobbies. Do you write once/week but spend 40 hours playing video games or binge-watching Netflix? Maybe it’s time for a change.
  • Not needing a member of the Avengers or Neil Gaiman or anyone to tell you “You should be writing.” Memes are cute, but discipline is key.
  • Hustling and making your own opportunities. (see: there’s no one path to success).
  • Understanding it’s a marathon not a sprint. NaNoWriMo is EvRyDayO.
  • Practicing to condense your book’s plot into 1-2 sentences so you can intelligently answer the dreaded question, “What do you write?”
  • Getting used to disappointment. No matter how good, how thoughtful or engaging your writing is, some people will simply not like it. It’s okay. Let it go.
  • Forging on despite a bad review, a bad cover, or a missed opportunity.
  • Believing in yourself and the worth of your writing. If you don’t, no one else will.
  • Not waiting around for the muse to strike. Want inspiration? Go find it. Hunt the muse down and tie it to the desk.
  • De-ritualizing the act of writing. You don’t need special pens or a special notebook. The magic is inside you.
  • Not waiting for a special place or a special time. The place is wherever you are. The time is now.

 

As always, with any writing advice, opinions differ and mileage varies. Writing is one of those odd careers where there is no one decisive path to success. I hope some of this advice helps you find your path!

Until next time, slán go fóill!
