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!

Why Write Lesbian Heroes?

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

I’ve been asked a lot lately why I write lesbian heroes. The answer seems simple: I’m gay and I’m part of the LGBTQ community. Makes sense, right? But the more I get asked this question, the more I think that answer really is too simple.

It’s easy to say “Well, I’m gay,” and just leave it at that. But here’s the thing: Growing up, I never had any heroes who were like me.

Growing up, my favorite heroines were Princess Leia, Buffy, Sarah Connor, Eowyn.

I was a huge Star Wars fan. Epic fantasy has always been in my blood, and I was super excited to see a badass space princess alongside Luke Skywalker and Han Solo. Princess Leia was out there saving the galaxy (and oftentimes, her male sidekicks). She was powerful, both on and off the battlefield, she was smart and sassy and spoke her mind, she was capable, and she didn’t settle for anything less than justice. She was a princess, but she wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty. In short, she rocked.

Then there was Buffy. I’m dating myself a little here because I’m referring to the movie starring Kristy Swanson (though Sarah MG’s Buffy was also tres cool). Who could forget the Buffster, half girly-girl/half badass slayer? She fought hard, loved harder, and pretty much smashed the patriarchy. She, too, rocked.

Sarah Connor. Who could forget Linda Hamilton’s transformation from plucky, determined heroine to gun-toting, muscle-bound babe? She threw down with Arnie and never gave up. Also, she totally Terminated that mofo.

Then there was Eowyn from The Lord of the Rings. She fought alongside all the fiercest warriors in Middle Earth. She singlehandedly slew the Witch-King of Angmar when no man could even touch him. She even dressed as a man. Then she married one.

And there it was.

I loved Princess Leia and Buffy and Sarah Connor and Eowyn, but at the end of the day, they went all went home with men. In many ways, they were very much like me. But they weren’t like me. Not completely.

Growing up gay, I was disappointed every time my favorite heroine ended up with a man. It seemed like everyone in my life was straight–from my real-life heroes right down to my fictional heroes. If the people I admired most were all straight, who was I to be gay?

So that, my pretties, is why I write lesbian heroes. So young gay women don’t ever have to ask that question.

Thank you for reading!

GIE’s Review: Of Fire and Stars

GIE’s Review: Wildthorn

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

GIE’s BRIEF SYNOP

Wildthorn by Jane Eagland is the story of Lousia Cosgrove growing up in 19th century England where girls are supposed to look pretty and get married and do as they’re told. Against all odds and societal norms, Lousia has aspirations to become a doctor. But when she confides in her family, she finds herself locked away in an insane asylum, her dreams, her life, her very identity stripped away from her.

Her only hope lies in Eliza, and the love that grows between them.

GIE’s TAKE

Beautifully descriptive and emotive, Wildthorn seems written in the vein of Sarah Waters’s Fingersmith, and although not as Byzantine or tightly plotted, Wildthorn still delivers quite a punch. The lesbian relationship is not center stage, but it is an integral part of Louisa’s character–a part she comes to embrace as she realizes the benefit of truth over living a lie.
