COVER REVEAL: Moribund!

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

Check out the gorgeous cover for MORIBUND! It’s the first book in my CIRCUIT FAE series, an urban fantasy romance featuring the Fae and teenage girls falling in love. I’m super psyched, and I can’t wait to share it with all you pretties!

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.

Instantly, her introverted world shatters, and she’s thrust into an ancient war between the fair Fae and the dark Fae—a war she wants no part of. But when the dark Fae harness the killing magic in technology to enslave the city and then choose the school as their battleground, what’s a girl to do?

Fight like hell. But Awakening her sleeper-princess powers is no easy task.

Syl’s only chance lies with her secret crush, Euphoria, who seems to know more than she’s letting on. But then, Syl discovers that Euphoria is really a dark Circuit Fae sent to destroy her. Worse, the more they fight, the more Syl Awakens, and the more their attraction grows. 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.

MORIBUND is currently available for pre-order on AmazonB&NiBooks, and Kobo.

Circuit Fae: Moribund on Pinterest!

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

In preparation for writing Circuit Fae: Moribund, Christina asked that I do some Pinterest boards with inspirations for Moribund’s different characters. I’d never been a big Pinterest user before, but like many people first dipping a toe into the wonderful world of Pinterest, I was instantly hooked.

I fell down the rabbit hole of Pinterest! I whipped up boards for Moribund’s heroines, Syl Skye and Rouen Rivoche as well as for the bad guys, Agravaine and Fiann Fee. And you know what? Those pics really helped.

I printed them out and put them up near my desktop while I wrote. They really conveyed the attitude and inspiration of the characters, and they stayed there the entire time I was working on Moribund. I have new pictures for Circuit Fae 2 up right now.

I’ve kept the boards a secret for a long time, but now I’m excited to share them with you! I’ve opened them up to the public. Check them out here!

As for other Pinterest boards, I’m also an avid Bullet Journal fan, so you can see my BuJo board. In addition, I have an “I Ship It” board for all my fantasy ships, a Celtic knotwork board for the Irish girl in me, and a few others under construction.

As always, thank you for reading!

Best,

~GIE

Presales for Circuit Fae: Moribund + an Extra Inside Look!

Saturday, February 4th, 2017

Hello, my pretties and all you sleeper-princesses out there! At long last, presales are up for Circuit Fae: Moribund. Get your copy and be the first to read on September 12, 2017.

As a special treat for clicking on this link, I’ll show you my “character sheet” for Syl Skye, the Heroine of Circuit Fae. The character sheets are a little exercise Christina had me do as part of my prep work for the series.

Here are your links!

And now, the character sheet!

SYL SKYE

Quote:  

“I run like a girl, which…as it turns out, is pretty darn fast.”

Role in Story:      

Primary heroine

Occupation:          

High school student/sleeper princess of the fair Fae

Physical Description:   

5.4, of Irish descent, bright red hair and grey eyes. A genuine smile touched by mischief. Dresses Goth chic with fishnets and Doc Martens.

Story Line Summary:    

A sleeper princess? Wait, what? I’m not ready to be royalty or anything. I just wanted a little popularity. You know, maybe to have someone to sit with at lunch or get the lead in the school play or, you know, date the head cheerleader… Normal stuff.

Character Arc – from an emotional POV, where is this character at the start of the book?

Syl is stuck in a rut. She doesn’t belong, even among the geeks and nerds. She knows she’s different, but her life seems to be nothing more than waiting for something—anything—to happen

Similar Characters:    

Merida from OUAT

Babydoll from Sucker Punch                                        

Character Strengths:  List three great things about your character

  1. She’s calm and witty, even in the face of danger

  2. She’s merciful

  3. She sees the best in people

Character Weaknesses:  List three negatives about your character.

  1. She’s naïve.

  2. She’s stubborn

  3. She’s too eager for adventure

Love Interest Alignment:      

Syl is a demisexual lesbian. She’s had some school-girl crushes, but she’s never experienced romance or love before meeting Rouen. (Click here for more on demisexuals)

Love Interest Benefit: How is this person better when they are with their love interest?

With Rouen, Syl learns to be bold and brave and to trust in herself and her powers as a sleeper-princess.

Describe Chara’s Favorite Room:      

Our apartment is super-small, but last year, Mom let me knock out the shelves on one wall and make a tiny reading nook. It’s more like a glorified cupboard, but I’ve hung my thousand-cranes mobile (really, it’s more like 63 cranes), and I use Glamma’s old rocking chair cushion to sit on. It’s not much, but it’s cozy and it’s mine. I spend a lot of rainy afternoons there, curled up with my e-reader and a cup of tea.

As always, thank you for reading!

Description

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.

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.

Note from GIE:

Hello, my pretties and all you sleeper-princesses out there–thanks for tuning in! It’s a common saying among authors that you write the book you’ve always wanted to read. For me, Circuit Fae: Moribund is that book. It combines dark magic, an urban setting, and most importantly, girls in love. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it!

Best always,

GIE
