I've been working superhard (and maybe reading comics a little) on a bunch of things lately -- and freakishly enough, they're all fae related. Possibly because it's June. Midsummer's almost here, and you know what that means.
This year, I'm adding to the fae mischief. First of all, part of the hard work has to do with edits on By the River, which is... well, like I said, not exactly a fairy tale, but a contemporary with a fairy tale feeling. In celebration, I've added a nice big excerpt to the page, in which Adam helps Leith find his perfect tattoo. Now, this excerpt has been edited, but hasn't gone through final line edits, so please excuse any hasty mistakes. Just thought it was time to get the page going proper, seeing as we're looking at July 31. So here's a massive "squeeeeeeee!" from me. I'll add another excerpt before then, too.
In other fae news, I'll soon have some fabulous artwork to share for my Love is Always Write story, which is coming... well, soonish. It's meant to be a surprise, but yay, artwork soon! I've seen preliminary sketches by the fabulous artist, C. Bernard, and it's super adorable. For more info on what's up with my story, the novelette-sized The Dangers of Fairy Compacts, and what's in store for the future there, hit up the Fairy Compacts page.
And last, but most certainly not least, I'd like to give a shout-out to Fae Awareness Month. There's an excellent giveaway there all month, and a lot of the names involved will be familiar. So here's a chance to win some awesome freaky fae stuff -- from slashy fairy tales to dark short fiction. Awwwww yeah.
