Fantasy & Fairy tales Day 5

In that realm of fairy tales coming true- today’s guest is a new author on the block. Her first release is coming the end of May from Ellora’s Cave. Here’s a teaser.

An angel on the edge of a Fall, a woman who should be dead, and the demon determined to see them both in Hell…Risking Eternity by Voirey Linger – available May 26th from Ellora’s Cave.

Please welcome Voirey Linger.

When Vivian suggested talking about my favorite fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast immediately came to mind. I admit to being one of those gals who finds the brutish Beast to be infinitely appealing. I mean, what’s not to like about a big, gruff alpha and a little bit of captivity? Sure, he’s a tad rough around the edges, but there’s something to be said for just the right amount of abrasion. There’s more than just the Beast’s raging case of alpha-holeness and Beauty’s fall into Stockholm syndrome that draws me in to this tale, though.

I love the Beast’s vulnerability.

Okay. I admit, it’s not easy to see. The Beast is usually considered a prime example of the man in charge, with all compassion and humanity stripped away until that one special someone learns to love him just the way he is.

When you think about it, though, Beauty and the Beast is one of the few fairly tales with no villain thrown in. it doesn’t need it because the Beast is his own worst enemy. He might have been bespelled into a monstrous body, but it wasn’t a random act of witchery or fairy mischief. He earned it.

This kind of self-destructive hero fascinates me. I love reading and writing about a man who is slowly destroying his own life, spiraling out of control. His every weakness is there, on display, and the more he tries to hide, the more we see. At some point, he’s bound to break, to reach the point where he’s beyond salvation, unless something or someone gets his attention. Then something miraculous happens.

We see his strength.

That moment, when the man pulls himself back from the brink, is what defines this damaged hero to me. Once on that edge, the easiest thing in the world is to give up, to let go and take that fall into complete loss. But heroes don’t give up. That’s what makes them heroes.

Others can look at the Beast and see the gruff monster, the alpha-male extreme, but I’ve looked a bit deeper. I’ll always see him as a man of vulnerability and strength.

Voirey Linger’s Risking Eternity is up at the Coming Soon pages at EC.

Fantasy & Fairytales- Day 2

Today’s guest is Dee Carney. She’s a fellow author over at Liquid Silver Books where Peerless is published.

Dee writes:

I can tell you the exact moment I became fascinated with fantasy. The exact moment. Remember the old late sixties classic Barbarella ? Now don’t start giggling. Well, if you’ve started, stop. I’ll wait.

Ok. As I was saying, Barbarella…stop snickering! No, I don’t have a thing for bad Jane Fonda acting or funky quasi-futuristic costumes. What made me stop and go whoa at my young age, was this guy. Remember him?

That’s Pygar, the blind angel. How sexy is that? A winged man. And one who needs—needs­­—a good woman at his side. (You know, in retrospect, I don’t think I could have written anything but erotic. Even as a youngster, I was a little too fast for my own good. lol) Seeing him for the first time sealed the deal for me on fantasy men.

I adore a hero who exists just outside of our modern sensibilities. Bring ‘em on, as damaged as you can make them—preferably emotionally damaged. (Back to that needing a good woman at his side thing.) I cut my teeth on reading Dragonlance books, then for some reason I can’t recall, moved on to Koontz and King before finally landing on Lori Foster and Alyson Kent. You might say to yourself that those are totally different sets of genres there, but not really…

Dragonlance where heroes wield swords and battle otherworldly creatures. Not a lot of steamy romance going on, true, but there’s always some romance in there. The masters of horror while managing to scare the pants off of us always managed to bring supernatural forces into their plots and characters…oh wait. That’s kind of the definition of fantasy, huh? As for Foster and Kent, they write about fantasy men. Need I say more?

The heroes of my stories have some element about them that exists just outside of our modern sensibilities. Right back to my love of Pygar days. In my upcoming release from Loose Id, Interdependence, twin brothers Jonah and Elijah Ballard battle the forces of an internal darkness consuming them with every day that passes. In my recent release from Liquid Silver Books, Deeper than the Ocean, my virgin merman is on a quest to avenge his mother’s murder. My current work-in-progress is the love story of Poseidon, god of the sea, and Medusa, damned Gorgon.

Can you see a little Dragonlance, King and Foster in those themes? I can.

You tell me when you first got hooked on fantasy. I’d love to hear from you.

All the best,

Dee

Fantasy & Fairytales-Day 1

Another week, another new book. I swear, it’s not getting any less exciting. And since this is the party that never ends, I’m going to have to bring in the big guns. Guest bloggers to help me chat about our themes- which this week happens to be–Oh look! In the title box!

Fantasy & Fairytales. All the bloggers are going to somehow hit that theme. I’m a pretty strict task master and don’t let anyone…snort…deviate from…giggle…oh, whatever. They’re going to interpret it however they want, and that’s fine with me. :D I’m looking forward to seeing what twist they take.

Why Fantasy/Fairytales? Today’s release is a co-written story by Celia Kyle and myself. It all started on a whim the day she finished building this website for me (pretty site, huh?) One thing led to another, and within a week we had book 1 completed in the ‘Falling for Fae’ series. Yes, it’s a short story, so a nice light read.

Two sisters, one crown and a race to find true love… Or suffer the consequences. *Shudder* The Queendom.

The stories are set in the magical land of Fae, and spill over to Earth. While the girls don’t have wings (sex with wings is tough–I’ll show you how in Fired Up coming out in June…) These are fun books because the start and finish are similar, but told from opposing POV of two sisters. Then the middle of the story follows–in Peerless–sister #1 Jessica. In Faetful, coming soon from Liquid Silver Books–we follow sister #2 Thalia. I love how they turned out, and the cover might give you a hint–they aren’t serious, staid, books.

ON TO THE PARTY!!

All week long, each day (including today) you visit and comment,  you earn an entry into the contest. Prizes this week:

Prize A: A signature banner by Tibbs Design. Here are a couple of samples of similar banner to the one you will get made just for you.

Prize B: Two ebooks–your choice backlist from any of the week’s guest author’s backlist.

Prize C: $5 gift certificate from MB&M.

—-

Three winners will be chosen, and #1 will get to chose WHICH of these prizes they want. #2 gets second choice.

So come back every day and enjoy a little excursion into the world of fantasy.

Oh, and Peerless? It’s available over at Liquid Silver. I hope you enjoy the little dip into fun and frivolity.

Give me a second to pick myself up off the floor. I didn’t plan this–in fact these books were all written and submitted in very different timeframes, but have somehow all come down to releasing within a month of each other. So…

Party time? :D

We were already going to hold a party starting tomorrow to celebrate the cowboys. But since it seems I have a few other things to celebrate, lets just keep the whole thing going. This coming week will be the Rocky Mountain Roundup–come back tomorrow for a chance to enter to win the Red-Hot Reader contest. And then once that’s done…I have other tricks up my sleeve.

See you tomorrow and let the par-tay begin!
