Changeling links: five things about fairies and NEW BOOK DAY!

It’s new book day, and Middle Hill #1: Changeling is out! Right now, you can get it on Loose Id’s website, and it should be up on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and all the other usual suspects in the next day or two. And my last book, Coral Were His Bones, is on sale for 40% off right now if you buy direct from Loose Id.

To celebrate, I’m going to be posting related links on Tuesdays and cut scenes on Thursdays for the next month. First up, five things about fairies:

1. If you feel the need to brush up on your folklore, changelings don’t work quite this way in Matt’s story, but the history and sociology’s interesting none the less.

2.  If you’re wondering how fairies are related to Sherlock Holmes, then you’ve never come across the Cottingley fairies. (And a shout-out to the not-so-great episode of Torchwood, “Small Worlds,” just for the truly creepy flashback scene on the train.)

3. The internet is awesome. Where else can you randomly find an English-subtitled French documentary about Icelandic beliefs in elves? I’d take it with a giant tablespoon of salt, though, especially when they get to the bit about UFOs. Take everything with a grain of salt, actually…

4. Here’s your stealth Canadian content, the song “Taken Away by the Fairies” by Colleen Power on last.fm or streaming on CBC’s website. It’s creepy, and I love it, and I would be the  kid in the song, mittens off, straight into the forest. Well, except for the bit about a man in her bed. Not so much. Go. Listen. Especially to the lyrics. While you’re on CBC’s site, check out her other song “Newfoundland Weather” as well for relationship described as maritimes weather forecast.

5. And since fae politics start to have some real-world implications on Matt’s life, some more folklore, with the Lost Kings of Faeryland.

Happy new book day!

To celebrate the release of my new book Changeling, I’m going to be posting related links on Tuesdays and cut scenes on Thursdays for the next month. Changeling is a m/m paranormal erotica novel about Matt, who sells sex to keep himself and his little brother together. When Matt discovers Kevin, the john he’s rapidly falling for, is a Prince of the Fae, the questions start piling up. But most importantly, why does Kevin keep acting like it’s Matt who will leave, when it’s Matt who’s the broken one?
