Bad Fairies launch

Today is the launch date of Bad Fairies, a romance set in modern Boston. The author is Alice M. Cole, the pseudonym of a friend of mine. I was fortunate enough to beta read this book for her, and I really enjoyed it. Caveat: Torrid Books, the publisher, does go in for steamy romance, so if you prefer sweet romances that fade to black, you probably want to give it a miss. Otherwise, it’s just $3.99 in various e-reader formats.

Here’s the description:

Someone is killing Boston’s flower fairies, and Cassie is afraid she knows who: her father, the Rose King, disappeared years ago, intending to kill himself. But the spells he cast to entangle and control his court keep him tied to the living. He can’t die until they do.

Cassie would like to turn to Bran O’Meara, formerly a priest and still a bard. In the old days, he was promised to his God and she was promised to another man. Now they have a second chance. But Bran is tied to the Rose King by spells so strong they have kept him from death for many hundreds of years. Will breaking the spell free Bran—or will it mean death for Bran, Cassie, and everyone in their court?

I’m hoping to have Alice stop by this week to do a guest post. Meanwhile, if this sounds interesting to you, please do check it out.

Jewel of Shaylar

As I mentioned yesterday, Laura Eno’s new book, Jewel of Shaylar (Book One of the Kingdoms of Chandra), launched this week.

Cover of Jewel of Shaylar

Archaeologist David Alexander investigates the cave where his father disappeared and hurtles into another world, one filled with magic and bizarre creatures. The mad ravings in his father’s journals of icemen and dragons may not be fantasies after all.
Convinced his father may still be alive, David begins a treacherous journey to find him and discover a way home. Along the way, he encounters a few unlikely friends. A Dreean warrior, a beautiful thief and a satyr join him as he searches.
David’s arrival into this new world sets off an explosive chain reaction of events. Faced with powerful adversaries and few clues, he may not get the chance to rescue his father before disaster strikes, condemning both of them to death. Or worse.
