Guest blogs and reviews for the Fairy Compacts Trilogy

Quick little something-or-other about the goings on in the wake of the new omnibus edition of Fairy Compacts!

-4 out of 5 stars from Dan at Love Bytes reviews! "I really enjoyed my day today, living in the world of this story." How cool is that? Thanks to the Love Bytes crew for giving it a shot.

-Guest blog on Fae-spiration at Prism Book Alliance! Wanna know what inspired me when I was building Tam and Aeron's world(s)? This is the place to check out! Includes some great recs for other fae reads, if you're into that, from both me and some of the Prism readers. Thank you for having me, Brandilyn and crew.

-4.75 out of 5 stars from Kris at Joyfully Jay! "When I was finished, I had that feeling of a story well done, and characters that had wormed their way into my heart." Thanks, Kris, for grabbing it off the pile and checking it out.

That's all for now! I'm knee-deep in trying to wrap up a few woefully late projects, but I'll return for more news on The Playhouse later in the week, I hope.

~Wingsex~

... Well, there's more to it than wingsex, but that's one of my favorite not-real words so I figured I'd just go with that. I hope everyone had a fun and safe St. Patrick's day. If you didn't get your copy of the Superpowered Love freebie, starring super-dads Jamie and Kellan, check it out here.

Now, onto the wings! At last, at last, the Fairy Compacts series will be available on Amazon next week. It's an omnibus edition, and it's already up for pre-order here. I'll do a few blog stops to celebrate the occasion next week, too.

Quick question and answer about this edition!

Q: Why an omnibus?
A: Amazon is difficult about freebies. So it was either wait until an omnibus edition was possible (as in, 'til all three books were out), or charge for the first one. Nahhhh. So instead, it's a 3-for-the-price-of-2 deal.

Q: So why bother with Amazon?
A: So readers can get it wherever they want it. More options = better!

Q: Will it be available anywhere else?
A: If people want it, I can do it. But all three are available for download everywhere else for the same price, so it might be a little redundant.

Q: Does this edition have the illustrations?
A: Yes! Both of Ruxandra's illustrations from books 2 and 3 are in the omnibus. And they look great!

Q: What about the Special Edition illustrations?
A: No, only the contributors to 2012's FOR RAVEN campaign got the third illustrations for books 2 and 3--that was part of their perk package. You can see thumbnails of ALL the art here though!

Q: Are there any differences between the individual editions and the omnibus?
A: Apart from the covers and the acknowledgement/intro notes (I wrote a new one), all content is exactly the same. If you already own the three novellas separately, you already have the whole deal.

Psst -- Get it One Day Early!

And by "it" I mean a tale of two super-dads trying to get some together time on St. Patrick's Day.

Cover art by Astro


St. Patrick's Day used to be all about the Party for Kellan and Jamie Monday. A bottle of Powers; a case of Guinness; random relatives and friends dropping in in taxis to do shots and listen to Kelly's beloved Paddy Rock all night long. The clean-up would take days, but it was all worth it for their favorite holiday of the year.

Then along came the babies. Rory and Shea are the apple of their dads' eyes, the center of their world... but not really party-friendly. Jamie and Kelly haven't had a night out in six months, though, so Jamie's mother offers to take the teething twins for St. Pat's. 

Except she turns up sick on the day of, and it looks like the idea of a super-dad date isn't in the cards after all. Not unless one of them finds a way, anyhow...

This story is a free, fluffy short that takes place three years after Nobody's Hero.  It contains explicit m/m scenes and is not suitable for anyone under 18.


HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY (tomorrow :D)!

~See you then~

Next up in Superpowered Love...

I can't say a ton right now, but I'm so excited I just have to share this with you all. I've just signed a contract with the awesome folk at Loose Id for the next Superpowered Love book, tentatively titled The Playhouse! That's right, you guys, it's time for adorable theater girlfriends... plus superpowers!

This book has been planned for--god, I don't even know, maybe two years now? Bogged down by all my various dramas, family and health-wise, I started to think I would never get to give these girls the send-off they deserve. Why was I so excited about them? I mean, apart from the obvious fun with pyrotechnics you can get out of having a hot-thermal in your theater?

Maybe Julia Alison's gorgeous artistic interpretation of them will help me explain:


... I know. Gah. I can't deal. (And yes, this is the same Julia Alison who, years ago, brought us the adorable Brady and Etienne character sketches. She's amazing, right?)

So head on over to the new page for The Playhouse and meet Genevieve and Lily properly. I'll update the page with the blurb, excepts, and all the usual stuff as Raven (Editor Supreme!) lets me know about the timeline situation. Until then, ♥

Coming for St. Patrick's Day!

If you know Jamie and Kellan from Nobody's Hero, you know how they usually spend St. Patrick's day:

St. Patrick's Day by Astro

Yeah, well, that was before they had a baby. Two babies, actually. 

So how are they gonna spend this St. Patrick's day? Astro's cover art for the upcoming Superpowered Love Freebie Short, Grá Mo Chroí, might give you a little hint. Just... the comparison...

So, alas, this year we will not see DJ Kellan let loose with his paddy rock playlist. But we can listen to the old one while we catch up with the boys. Come back on St. Pat's for your copy of this cuteness!

Epic!

Hey remember how I mentioned the Superpowered Love Boxed set? Containing all of the six Superpowered Love books currently in existence? 


Yeah that's the one!

Welp for two weeks only, this baby is going for the incredibly low intro price of $8.99 at both Amazon and ARe. That is literally $20 off. I don't know if this will ever happen again, so if you were considering it--man. Jump on it!

As a general update:

-Just sent a new Superpowered Love to the editor. Let's see how that pans out, but it involves cute girls.
-Just started a new freebie for St. Patrick's day 2015. That alone will probably tell most people who it's about, but as a little hint:

And yeah, Astro's back to do the cover, too :D
