Today is the summer solstice.. That’s the longest day in the year in the sense that thee is way more light than dark. I did a lot of research on solstices and equinoxes for the first book I sold to a publihes, and it was published not long after. So, today, we’re going back in time for our titles, in this case FAERIE FATE, FAERIE FIRE, FAERIE FOOL, and FAERIE FAITH. They’re all still available digitally and maybe in print because I think Wild Rose did POD, though it might take awhile to get a print copy.
I have to admit, I wrote FAERIE FIRE first. Only it wasn’t FAERIE FIRE. Nope. It was “Highlander” (the TV show with Adrian Paul playing the immortal Highlander.) I wrote a screenplay/;story about one of his previous loves being reincarnated and him having to protect her. Then I heard publishers were looking for time travel romances again based on Karen Marie Monings continued success. So I came up with the idea of FAERIE FATE. And it occurred to me that I could convert the :fan fiction into an actual book with the hero sort of based on Duncan McLeod, though Duncan Ross was not immartal. He was sort of cursed by the Fae, though, to repeat his lifetimes until he found his true love. Then Abhean, the Fae Harper, takes things into his own hands and hurls Rebecca Miller back in time.
Both FIRE and FOOL carry on the theme of lovers reincarnating until they figure it out, get it right, and find their Happy Ever After. In the final novella, Abhean gets his when Mannan Mac Lir gets a little PO’d at the Harper’s interference and hurls him into the human world, as…*GASP* a human! On, noes! This is me doing a Muppet Flail. Anyway, those were fun books to write and while they aren’t the first I wrote (trust me, those won’t see the light of day), I’m pretty proud of them. I’ve linked the covers and titles to the FAERIE REIGN page on my website. You can find buy links there if you’re interested in checking them out.
I also have to admit that I I tended to munch–a lot–while writing all of those books. I wrote most of FATE during my lunch breaks as I was working full-time back in those days. Wendy’s. Taco Bell. A Greek place that’s no longer in business. So that’s our treat today. Fast food. What’s your favorite fast food place?
I love these books so much! They’re made of awesome.
Gah, I haven’t had fast food in years. :shrug: In the olden days, though, my fave was Wendy’s. Mmm, Frosties. The closest Wendy’s is like 45 minutes away, so not really an option. Sunday, the neighbor kids brought us leftovers from his birthday party at Pizza Hut. First time I’d had that since we left Colorado. I’m such a hermit. LOL
