Bad-Ass Faeries land in Massachusetts!!


Yesterday, my friend Del held a wonderful Massachusetts release party for the latest Bad-Ass Faeries anthology: In All Their Glory!

Everyone who attended had a wonderful time.

One of the editors and contributors, Lee C. Hillman (who I know as GwendolynGrace), who's become a friend and someone I look forward to seeing whenever I can, also came out to Oxford to help celebrate! She did a reading from her fabulous space fae story that was most excellent.

On top of that, we got to share some time with Jean Walker, author of Your Guide to the Faerie Realm, based on her actual experiences in photographing faeries! I'd actually run into Jean about a year ago and saw some of her first photos at Moonstruck Café while I was writing coffee shop reviews. I hardly find it a coincidence that we've met again and plan on keeping in contact with her.

I opened the festivities with a reading from "Last Gate to Faerie," and was more nervous than usual because this was also the first time my mom would hear me read; she and my aunt had come all the way out to Oxford to see me! After some blurbling and a bit of laughter, I introduced the work and started from the beginning of the story, saying something like I'd be reading the not-as-dark or violent parts. Gwen, who is very familiar with the piece, piped up and asked what was I going to read then?

If you caught the excerpts I posted here, you see she was well founded in her teasing. It's a pretty dark and violent story… with "pretty" being questionable.

In any case, people enjoyed it and bought books!

After Gwen and I did our readings, Jean did a talk on her own faerie adventures, which was really interesting with absolutely amazing photos. It's hard to get the depth of them on the website, so definitely pick up the book or check out one of her talks.

If you're interested in Bad-Ass Faeries 3: In All Their Glory, you can pick it up at Del's store in Oxford, via Amazon, or directly from me. Get your copy today!
