The Gingerbread Man- A Scrumptious Erotic Fairytale
by Lynn Hubbard
Once upon a time there was a girl named Penelope. Food was scarce those days, and she had to walk miles looking for roots or berries to eat. After a long, hot morning Penelope was tired and hungry. A delicious scent led her to a cabin deep in the woods. She followed it in anticipation of having all her needs filled.
The Legend of M’Rith
by Miriam Newman
By 1844, an increase in the human population of Ireland has forced Fae inhabitants from their lush green homes in the East to the spare, bare terrain of the West–except for one. M’Rith, half fairie and half elf, has been bidden by her Queen Mother to remain in the forest, promising her a mortal man to love. Kieran, the village blacksmith, has lost his wife and lives in the same painful solitude as M’Rith, but he is a worker of iron that can mortally wound a fairie lover.
by Jae El Foster
There is a black plague crossing from kingdom to kingdom, placed upon a slumbering princess by her wicked stepmother, and only with true love’s kiss can the spell be lifted. Will the plague encompass all before that kiss can be sealed, or will the power of true love make itself known to the handsome Prince Harold, providing him with the adventure of a lifetime?
from The Legend of M’Rith
by Miriam Newman
Small and slight and sweet as a berry, she had the palest of faces with enormous pools of slate-gray eyes and a sculpted mouth the color of a berry, too. Jet black hair fell in a mass to her shoulder blades and the violet gown she wore let him see an enticing bit of those as well as lovely sculpted collarbones and the beginning of a swell of breast. Her slender waist was cinched with gold cord. On her feet were the prettiest scarlet slippers—a shocking contrast to her gown, but somehow they suited her, matching the drape of a rich, red-beaded necklace she wore against all rules of fashion. She was all amethyst and ruby. Her feet were the tiniest he had ever beheld; she was tiny all over…the most glorious, diminutive woman, with her skirts held up so that he saw the finest turn of a lovely ankle and calf ever permitted his view outside the marital bed. He felt an unmistakable pang of desire, shocking in the midst of his grief, but he told himself it was simply that he had been too much alone.
She wasn’t anyone he knew, but she stood stock still amongst his chickens, looking at him fully and boldly…a somehow impertinent stare, as if she knew quite well what was in his mind and challenged him to come and kiss the startled look from her face, part her legs and plunge into ecstasy. She was, in short, the woman of his dreams…the one who would consume him utterly.
What types of books do you enjoy in your downtime?
Anything in the fantasy realm, romance (of course!) and I’m very fond of science fiction. Historical novels are my passion, romance or otherwise. Basically I like to read anything past, future or fantasy.
What are you working on now? Any chance of a sequel?
I am actually working on a sequel, The Eagle’s Lady. It is Book II of my series, The Eagle. Book I, already out, is The Eagle’s Woman.
What does a typical workday look like for you?
Because I work a nearly full-time job, my writing generally takes place at night or on weekends. I love to sleep in until 6.a.m. on weekends (the latest my dogs will allow! ), feed and exercise the dogs, get coffee and hike to the computer. This occasionally results in pajama parties.
How do you deal with writer’s block?
I find it has to work its own way through. There is nothing I can do to influence it.
Out of all the books you’ve written, do you have a favorite?
My favorite book, hands down, is The King’s Daughter. It can be found now as the first book in my Chronicles of Alcinia.
If someone is brand new to your work, what book do you think they should start with?
Probably The Comet would be a good choice. It is historical romance set at the time of the Norman invasion of England in 1066. Although it’s historical, the theme is basically timeless.
What literary pilgrimages have you gone on?
My first book was written during a trip to Ireland and I only wish the rest could have been, as well.
Does a big ego help or hurt writers?
Both. You have to have enough confidence to slog on through the pitfalls and bad reviews. On the other hand, if you cannot take advice because you think your writing is the greatest thing since sliced bread, that is a problem.
Did you ever consider writing under a pseudonym?
I did because I write in several genres and I wondered if it would help to keep them separate. But it’s hard enough to get established under one name.
Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?
My first published book delivered what the reader expected. The following book was my true self, and I think is still the book readers most identify with me. It garnered some really outstanding reviews and literary prizes. That told me what I needed to know. I need to write true to myself. Readers can spot artifice.
Fantasy poetry driven by myths and legends has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I was published in poetry before catching the romance writing bug. I bring that background to my writing along with a lifelong addiction to horses, an 18 year career in various areas of psychiatric social services and many trips to Ireland, where I nurture my muse. My published works range from contemporary fantasy romance to fantasy historical, futuristic, science fiction and historical romance. Currently I live in rural Pennsylvania with a “motley crew” of rescue animals. You can see my books at www.miriamnewman.com.
