New Bad Ass Faeries Web Site and Blog

Bad Ass Fairies BooksWhen you say the word “fairy” aloud – many folks conjure up a Tinkerbell-like apparition: magical, cute, helpful. It’s the Disney-sanitized version of the myth.

Most traditional stories of the fae reveal a world of mischievous, cruel — even outright harmful — creatures who like nothing more than to bedevil man.

The Bad Ass Faeries books take fae story-telling back to its roots, showing the faeries for who they are, and often in the modern world.

If you’re at all curious about the Bad Ass Faeries™ series, you need to check out the new Bad Ass Fairies Web site. There’s an associated blog as well.

Some pages are still empty, and there’s a glitch or two to work out, but the editors wanted to make the page live — and advertise it — as soon as possible.

I’ve got a story in the Bad Ass Fairies 3: In all Their Glory anthology, called Selk-Skin Deep. It takes traditional selkie mythology and stands it on its ear, putting the main character (the selkie) on a Navy ship during the Vietnam War.

If you like:

  • Faeries (or fairies!)
  • Military stories
  • Alternate histories
  • Action (Fire! Bombs! Explosions! Death! Destruction!)

… then you might like my story.

Read the first five pages here. (Warning, it ends abruptly in the middle of a scene. Sorry!)
