GraylinFox_ContessaHiRes

My cabin sits near a portal to the Otherworld. The Dark Fae are sending ogres to kill any humans who survived the plague they unleashed a year ago.  First a baby dragon, then a goblin, show up looking for me. That’s when the fairy I’d known for a year decides to tell me I’m an elf and my high school boyfriend runs the Dark Fae. I went from human with a bad breakup to a fairy tale creature that was still in love with a killer in three days.

A trip through the Otherworld portal shows me my birthplace and dangles the promise of a happy ending I thought was gone. Confronted with true evil, I have to learn my ice magic while fighting for my life. With rekindled love and a new family to protect, I’ll have to battle a psychotic elf with lightning power. One bolt and I’ll disintegrate. One of us won’t survive.

Apple Cinnamon Swirl will be appearing in your favorite eBook store next week.

Abby grew up in a military family, her father and grandfather served, so when the time came she enlisted without reservation. Then, her back was broken in an IED attack. Her Humvee was thrown sideways, killing her friends and leaving her to learn to walk again.

Repairing her body took months, her limbs regained their flexibility through yoga. What did she have to offer, now?  Abby gave everything to her job, being sent home at the end of the day to an empty house reminded her of lost friends. Trixie wagged her tail making her laugh, but it wasn’t the same. Then Viviana showed up at her house to tell her she’d been chosen. Her sister put in the request to help her ease the loneliness.

Galen watched Abby before he inhabited the body of the statue to learn about the woman he will love throughout her life. He sees a tough warrior in need of unquestioning devotion who will resist him. His admiration for her sacrifices opens a doorway to her pain making her push him away. Galen didn’t take this assignment lightly, he’ll wait until she offers her heart to him, no matter how long it takes.

I hope you love these stories as much as I do. :) Buy Links for Contessa are available on the book page (Link above on the bar) – I’ll add the Apple Cinnamon Swirl links as they go live next week.

Clinical psychologist Ellie Quinn is starting a brand new job at a hospital in Savannah. She doesn’t expect the amorous attentions of quick-tempered ex-cop Owen Mata and handsome Russian surgeon Dmitri Komarnitskaia. But choosing between the two is soon the least of her worries. When she persuades a battered woman to leave her husband, Ellie finds herself the target of a sinister serial killer, and something about the case is making Owen increasingly unstable. Only with Dmitri does she feel safe, but if she can’t bring her psychological skills to bear to catch the killer, she won’t be the only one in danger.

Back into the dark beginnings

I started a new series recently and with each day I write it becomes darker. I love it. I had wandered away from the grotesque twisted poetry that built my writing career and now I get to play in the shadow of depravity again.

One of the first poems I wrote in 1994 stays in my mind as clearly as the day I put it on paper. I have submitted this one page lyrical description of a nightmare but have yet to find it a home.

A section of THE COURTYARD

You see the servant. You see his back, covered with welts and still dripping blood from massive shoulders. His hair is tangled, greasy and crawling with so many maggots, they appear to writhe in unison.

Disgust turns your stomach as you look past your captor to the passage beyond. The hallway is hewn of pure stone with torches set every few yards. A set of massive doors stand at the other end. The doors are monstrous, made of wood with brass handles and knockers spewing forth from the mouths of grotesque carvings. Images of death and torture are so intricately carved that the men look nailed to the door instead of carved on it.

As you near, the details become sharper. Not all the figures are human. Satyrs, centaurs, sylphs and zephyrs writhe in pain and horror. Body parts are scattered, limbs twisted and missing.

 

I miss writing poetry so I tend to put a LOT of description in my rough drafts. Occasionally, like with COMING HOME, it fits well enough to stay intact through editing. Otherwise I have wonderful friends and editors who tell me to stop blathering on about the scenery and get on with it.

This new series is so new I’m on the first draft of the first book. I’ll post updates as I go along. I’ve stopped blogging regularly to focus more on writing in every spare moment.

BLOODLINES: The Second Summer Fae Story will, hopefully, be released this fall. It is in the final editing stages as I write this.

SMOLDER: A contemporary romantic suspense is being considered for acceptance right now. *checks inbox* Yep, still being considered.

And this new one will be ready to submit by the end of August.

Thanks for taking the time,

Graylin

 

 

Coming Home and Sookie Stackhouse ?!?

As of last night, my short story/short novella (17 pgs) went on Kindle’s free list for 5 days. I was checking the rankings and you can see where I got the Coming Home -> Sookie connection in these images.

That’s the Action & Adventure list.

That’s the general fantasy list.

And the contemporary fantasy list.

To say I’m thrilled is putting it mildly. For the number of people checking out my story I’m grateful. For the Sookie is nearby part I do have goosebumps. 😉

Ever grateful,

Graylin Fox
