Good News For Magic Knot Fairies

After months in limbo after Dorchester Publishing went belly up, my Magic Knot Fairies series has now been taken over by Montlake Romance, the romance publishing imprint of Amazon. The books will now be coming out again as ebooks and paperbacks. I’m also hoping they will be available as audio books.

I have my fingers crossed that I will finally be able to write the rest of the series as well. If so, there will be at least two more novels and a novella to come.

Divided Loyalties

A Clockwork Fairytale Book Cover

When someone experiences a situation where their gut instinct tells them to go against everything they have been taught and ‘break the rules’, it is always interesting to see how the person, or in the case of fiction, the character, handles the experience. They have to reconcile what they thought they knew and believed with what they are compelled to do. This is often when characters grow and learn the most.

Often this situation can arise when someone’s duty conflicts with their personal wishes or desires, as is the case in A Clockwork Fairytale. The young hero, Turk, has been taught a clear and uncompromising set of principles, one being that women are not trustworthy or even worthy at all. This belief falls apart when he meets the heroine and he starts to think for himself.

In A Clockwork Fairytale, Turk has to go against those he considers to be his olders and betters to do the right thing, but it is a difficult decision for him to make. I love putting characters in circumstances where there is no clear right and wrong and they have to make difficult choices.

A Clockwork Fairytale

A rags to riches fairytale about a lost princess and a maverick young spymaster who must foil the plans of an evil magician bent on stealing her throne.
