Continuing on with reference points about fantasy, I have none when it comes to Faeries. Or that was the case when I first started jumping on the paranormal bandwagon seven years ago. My first fairy story was probably the Merry Gentry series by Laurel K. Hamilton, an author I admire and respect despite what many of her readers say about her latest foray into BDSM. That’s another post when I’m promoting a BDSM book again.
Aside from that, there was one other fairy romance and I barely remember it. I just know it came out from Berkeley and that the author was a woman.
Then there’s Amy Brown’s Faeries. The artist who paints otherworldly creatures with such beauty that my S.O. owns a few of them because they ARE gorgeous but not typical in the minds of the average reader. Or perhaps they are. You tell me.
Either way, the faeries have a unique perspective and give us a taste of something different in our stories, especially with the myriad of legends that surround them.
Here though, in Echo’s Odyssey, I decided to write a faery romance for Changeling press. My story was rejected (gasp, the shame LOL!) by them but a revision had it sitting at the submissions desk of the fine folks at Sizzler Editions. An even funnier theme in this pair of stories is that I based them both off Anime.
The plot for Sacrifice I ripped off and modified slightly from a show called Case Closed. I had to. I don’t write real detective fiction!
And Echo the Assassin of Faery is based on Hie from Yu-Yu Hakusho!
Now for the blurb: The wars of faery are over, but for the assassin Echo and his lover Alexandrya, a new war is just beginning. They return to faery expecting to be reunited with the third member of their triad, the princess Serenissa, only to find she and faery itself are threatened by even greater peril
I think I just posted something about fantasy in erotic romance awhile back too, with almost a similar title LOL!
Wait, I did. Fantasy in Romance But my keywords are funny..
Anyway you’re more interested in Heavenly Bodies. So go buy it from Amazon now!
