Content Around The Web:

On Youtube/Twitch:

  • Fairytales & Folklore in Urban FantasyAs humans, we look for patterns everywhere. So, when we see a new story, draped in the shape of a well-known fairytale, the vibrant mix of the familiar with the new and strange can be irresistible to many of us as readers. There’s a reason that wrapping fairytales and folklore in urban fantasies has proven so popular.

On the Podcast “Writing Tips and Writerly Musings”:

  • Getting — And STAYING — (Traditionally) PublishedAll writers who want to share their work with the world want to be published. Some want to self-publish while others would prefer to have the backing — and distribution — of a publishing house. Talking about the realities of traditional publishing — when you’re not an A-list author.

As Long As I Have You

Reeling from an unexpected public break-up, recent graduate Bo Johnson finds his life in flux, unsure of his romantic outlook or himself. The one thing he can count on, however, is his dad’s desire for him to get serious about a future on the family’s large commercial farm—the one he stands to inherit. If he actually wants it, that is.

For headstrong Jordan Wright, a life on her family’s small Appalachian farm has never been in question—as long as it doesn’t fall into foreclosure first. With debts mounting and the bank’s grace running out, Jordan inherently knows the one thing her mama and grandparents won’t say aloud: it’s up to her to save them.

When Jordan lands a prestigious internship at Johnson Farms with a lucrative cash prize, she vows to keep her focus, despite partnering with the owner’s ruggedly handsome son…

Hook

Pirate. Villain. Gentleman?

The first time I set eyes on the scruffy rogue Elijah Hook, I wasn’t sure what kind of man he truly was. But when he fought to set me free from the gilded cage the lost boys kept me in, I knew he was worthy of my attention.

When those boys found out I was smitten with the good captain, they spread the most heinous of lies. Stories so offending that the people of San Juan went on the hunt for him with the intention of taking him straight to the gallows.

Now, I have a choice—save Captain Hook and live at the mercy of the lost boys in Neverland for the rest of my days, or watch them kill my true love.
