Release Day Interview With Crown Prince Felipe and Princess Caitlin

This is by far the strangest thing I have ever written. My brain can’t cope with too much meta, but because today is the release day for A More Complicated Fairytale, I thought I would try my hand at writing something like this. It was weird, but fun.

AMCFTsmallWe’re sitting in the library in the Palace of Nardowyn. It’s a room I know well, as Cait and Felipe spent many of their early meetings in here. The word “library” is a bit of a misnomer, though; “museum” would be more accurate, since as well as the many shelves of books, there are cabinets and glass cases lining the walls, full of rare artefacts collected by the Royal Family over the generations.

Cait and Felipe are sharing a sofa across from me. Between us is a coffee table, which always seemed to have a couple of books lying on it, though that number has increased since Cait has been living in the palace and making the most of full-time access to this room. Felipe has his cane leaning on the arm of the sofa next to him; his war injury is continually improving, but there are still times when the cane is required.

“Thank you for meeting with me today,” I say, and they both nod in acknowledgment, smiling. “It’s been a while since I’ve spent any proper time with the two of you. How is married life treating you?”

They glance at each other, making a quick, silent decision about who will answer the question. “It’s been wonderful,” Cait says. “Marrying into the royal family was a terrifying prospect, but everyone has been very welcoming.”

“And I believe you’ve got some news to share?”

Another glance. Felipe slips his arm around Cait’s shoulders. Wide smiles spread over both their faces.

“We’re expecting a child in August,” Felipe says.

“Congratulations,” I reply. “I’m sure he’ll be a wonderful addition to the family.”

Felipe tilts his head at me. “He? It will be a boy, then?”

Dammit, self, don’t give your characters foreknowledge of major life events. That never works out well.

“That’s all for the next book,” I say quickly. “We’re here to discuss the first one.”

Felipe gives me a sideways look, but he doesn’t press the issue.

“So, how does it feel having the story of your romance out in the world?”

“I’m not sure I was always presented in the best light,” Felipe remarks.

“Well, you can blame Cait for that. It’s from her point-of-view.”

“I was always perfectly charming toward Cait.”

Cait rolls her eyes and grins. “You were an entitled prat at the start.”

Felipe puts on his best wounded expression and claps one hand across his heart. “Cait. It hurts me when you say things like that.”

Cait rolls her eyes again and laughs. She pulls his hand away from his chest. She rests her hand on his knee, still holding his.


This is a screencap from Phantom of the Opera, but it’s the picture that most matches Cait and Felipe in my mind.

“Anyway,” she says. “I think it tells the story very faithfully, and I’m glad you’ve done so much work in putting it all together.”

“Thanks, Cait.”

“But what’s next for you?” she asks. “Are you going to be staying here or are your next projects taking you farther afield?”

“Well, I’ve got a few projects on the go. I definitely won’t be leaving Nardowyn for good. Ginny’s going to be getting up to a few things in a few years’ time.”

“What sort of things?” Cait’s eyes narrow at me suspiciously at the mention of her sister as the central character in a new story.

“Don’t worry, I promise I’ll bring her home safely at the end.”

“You’d better.”

By the point, the conversation is starting to get a bit too meta for me to get my head around. I stand to go and give a small bow.

“Your Highnesses, thank you for letting me visit you here today. I’ll keep you posted on the status of the book.”

Cait and Felipe stand up to see me out of the library. When we reach the large wooden doors, Cait says, “Thanks once again,” and I turn and smile.

“You’re very welcome,” I reply, and then step out the door. They close behind me and I am left with the task of finding someone who can help me navigate my way out of this labyrinth of a palace.

Don’t forget, you can now purchase A More Complicated Fairytale from the Amazon Kindle store (link to the American site, but it available pretty much everywhere, I think). It’s also on GoodReads if you want to keep it on your radar but not quite ready to buy it just yet.


Cover Reveal: A More Complicated Fairytale by… Me!

Over three years after I started writing it, it’s nearly time to unleash my baby on the world. My first novel, A More Complicated Fairytale, will hopefully be launched on April 02. I’m in the midst of setting up a pre-order. I will, of course, share the link when it’s available.

Those of you who have been reading my blog for a long time will have read plenty of snippets from AMCF over the last couple of years. For those who haven’t, you can acquaint yourselves with Cait and Prince Felipe here.

For those who just need a quick refresher, here’s the blurb:

Most of the young women in Nardowyn swoon over Crown Prince Felipe, but Caitlin has never seen the appeal. When she catches his eye during a royal festival, she has little choice but to begrudgingly go along with his attempts to form a friendship between them, and soon learns that there is more to him than meets the eye.

When Felipe goes to war to avenge the death of his brother, Cait enlists as a nurse to be nearer to him. Here, Cait’s connection to the prince will put her in more danger than she can imagine. But Cait’s never been one to take the easy way out, so if her life is going to turn into some sort of fairy tale, with a prince and a happily ever after, it’s no surprise it will be a more complicated one.

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for, here is the cover in all its glory:


This thing of beauty was designed by the wonderful K. L. Schwengel and I am forever in her debt..

Stay tuned over the next couple of weeks for giveaways, interviews, and more!

#WIPpet Wednesday –

Before I go any further, I want to apologise for not being a good WIPpeteer and visiting many of you last week. I had a super productive weekend, and usually productive weekends include visiting WIPpets, but this week it was more devoted to cleaning up the spare room so one can actually sit on the sofa in there.

amcfbannerSecondly, I wanted to say how chuffed I felt after reading all your comments about how you love Cait and Felipe and could never get sick of them. Because sometimes when I’m writing WIPpet posts, I feel like I’ve been posting from their story forever and that you’re all thinking, “Just publish the thing already!” Which you may be thinking anyway, but in a more positive way. 😀 Well, good news there, I finished my final round of edits last night!!! Now I just need to format it, and get back to the wonderful Kathi regarding a cover – as well as possibly splurge on some stock photos next payday – and then…! It’s not quite the August release date I had in mind, but you know, I’m really more interested in the fact that I will have published a book rather than exactly when it happens.

Speaking of that, though, would anyone who beta read a previous draft be willing to read over a particular scene and give me some comments in light of the edits Edy made on it? Because there was one part where he was saying that Cait really needed to respond in a certain way, and I was like, “… but how?” I couldn’t really figure out what she might say to give this reaction. And to me, it’s fine as it is, so I just wanted a few other opinions on it. I say people who have read a previous draft because it’s a fairly major scene so a) context will help and b) it’s also fairly spoilery.

Since I’ve been focusing on edits this week and haven’t written anything new, I’ll stick to AMCF for WIPpet Wednesday this week. This scene is early on, during the festival that’s taking place when all the visiting royals are there to find Felipe an appropriate wife. Cait and her sister Ginny have been hanging out with Ava, Guy and Bridget (Guy’s the one Cait fancies, Ava’s her best friend and Bridget is Ginny’s age). My WIPpet math was going to be 1+7 (the date) = 8 paragraphs, except I didn’t actually count properly, and it’s really only five… so… 1+4 (from 2014) = 5 will do.

It was when they were considering what to purchase for lunch that Ava and Cait ended up separated from Guy and their sisters. Ava and Cait were inspecting the options from a man selling noodle dishes, but when they turned around, Guy, Bridget and Ginny seemed to have been completely swallowed up by the crowd.

“They were just over there!” exclaimed Ava, pointing to the stall where the other three had been looking at food. “Where could they possibly have gone?”

“It’s all right,” said Cait, briefly trying to figure out a way to balance her plate of food in one hand so she could put the other on Ava’s shoulder. She gave up on that idea and instead simply said, “I’m sure they’ll be fine. Maybe they couldn’t see us through the crowd and thought we’d wandered off. Guy will look after them. And they know where to meet us at the end of the night, so they’ll find us there if not before. Come on, let’s go and find somewhere to sit and eat.”

There was an area with tables set aside nearby. As it was the middle of the day, it was crowded, but Ava and Cait timed their arrival to snap up a table just as a husband and wife vacated it. Cait wanted to savour her meal – the noodles and vegetables had been cooked in a spicy sauce she’d never tasted before and she wanted to make it last – but she and Ava agreed they should eat as quickly as possible to free up the table again. After Cait assured Ava a second time that Ginny and Bridget would be fine, they decided to go and wander some more of the attractions.

Truth be told, Cait was actually worried about Ginny, and hoped she was still with Guy. There was little chance of them running into the others in these crowds, though, so she was hoping for the best. Before they had parted ways with their parents, they had arranged a meeting spot for the end of the day’s festivities so they were certain of all making it home together. Cait simply crossed her fingers in hope that everyone would be reunited when the time came and there would be nothing to worry about.

To join in on WIPpet Wednesday, simply post an excerpt from your current WIP that somehow relates to the date, and then link it with the rest of us here. Thanks to K. L. Schwengel for hosting. 🙂 I’m going to head off now because it’s 9:30 and while I usually don’t go to bed til at least 10 or 10:30, I’ve had a long day of First Aid Refresher Training, so my brain is a bit fried. I did get 100% on the test at the end, so it’s likely I can keep people alive until paramedics arrive, which is comforting. Anyway. I was going.


#WIPpet Wednesday – Sunshine and artworks

A quick FYI first off: I’ll probably disappear from the blog next week, as I have rehearsals  for The Crucible Sunday afternoon and then every night except Tuesday and I am going to be pooped. If I’m on the ball this week, I’ll schedule some posts in advance, but I won’t be around much for comments, most likely.  We are performing on the 24th and 25th, which is far too close for comfort and I’m absolutely terrified (I usually have to be forced to eat on opening days because I’m so nervous, and that’s just when I’m doing fun musicals; this is the first time I’ve ever done serious drama), but all being well, everything will go smoothly for here on in and we’ll be fine.

Anyway, onto more interesting things, remember how a while ago I said that I had commissioned my artist friend to do an illustration for A More Complicated Fairytale? I picked it up on Friday afternoon, and I have to admit, I squealed a bit when I pulled it out of the folder the first time. This is Cait and Felipe at the end of their more complicated fairytale. 😀 (Admittedly the quality is not amazing because it’s too big for my scanner, so I had to take a photo with my phone. But I think you get the idea.) Frankie said she was worried that Felipe’s crown was wonky, but I think it adds to his charm. And I like to think Cait’s about to fix it for him. My favourite part is that floppy bit of Felipe’s hair.

Illustration by the very amazing Frankie Sunflower.

For WIPPet Wednesday this week, I’m giving you 70 words (14×5 for the 14th of May) from AMCF. Cait got knocked out at the end of the previous chapter, and then there was a bit from Felipe’s POV, and this is when it switches back to Cait as she comes to.

Cait felt the sunshine on her face before she opened her eyes. She was lying in a bed far more comfortable than the one she had been used to for the past several months and her head was nestled in a plump pillow. When she opened her eyes she saw that she was in a big room with a tall ceiling and glass doors that opened out onto a spacious courtyard.

If you would like to join in on WIPPet Wendesday, please do! Post an excerpt from your WIP that somehow correlates to the date and then join us at the linky here. Many thanks to K. L. Schwengel for hosting. I must dash, shall see you all soon!


#WIPpet Wednesday – Promise me. (#ROW80 also)

row80-2After finishing my edits on A More Complicated Fairytale over Easter, I then proceeded to be lazy for a fortnight and do nothing. I resolved, however, that this week I would get back on track with things. I had Crucible rehearsal on Monday night (only 8 rehearsals left now – eeeek!) so that really only left last night. Even though it had only been a couple of weeks, my discipline had all but disappeared, so I just aimed for 500 words, and in about two hours I ended up with 611. I actually had a rough version of the scene I was trying to write saved in Evernote; I wrote it back in November. Guy as a character appeared in my head when I was wandering the Egyptian galleries at the British Museum and had an entirely unnecessary Irish accent in my mind, which I blame on the fact that I had seen the musical Once the day before and it’s set in a bar in Dublin.

(Semi-related side-note: I just looked up the Wikipedia article for Once to check which city it was set in, and have learned that the main guy is now being played by Arthur Darvill, who some people might remember as Rory in Doctor Who. Why was he not in it when I saw it?! Not that the guy I saw was anything short of amazing, I was verging on some serious ugly-crying by the end, but…!)

Sorry, anyway, as I was saying, I had a rough draft of this scene, and it’s mostly still rough, but at least I got the words down. With luck, I will work on some more tonight.

Today is also Wednesday, which means I also need to post a WIPpet. No tricky maths for me today, just seven short paragraph for the seventh day of the month (related: how is it even May already?). In this scene, Cait is saying goodbye to Guy before he leaves for war, and he finally has the guts to ask her out. Well, sort of. For the future.

amcfbanner“All right, when I come back, would you consider… I don’t know, accompanying me to a dance or to dinner some time?”

Cait’s shoulders had tensed as Guy began the question, but relief swept over her as he finished it. She laughed, a wide smile crossing her face. “I thought we were going to reach a point where I would have to ask you that.”

Guy’s relief was also obvious, and he laughed, too. “Well, why didn’t you? It would have made it so much easier for me.”

Cait absently reached up to straighten his collar. “Well, you did fine in the end. I must go, my parents will be waiting. Promise me you’ll stay safe.”

“I will.”

“No unnecessary rushing into battle.”

“I’ll do my best.”

Schwengel, for hosting. A Round of Words in 80 Days (ROW80) is hosted by Kait Nolan and you can find out more here. I’m going to head off now and get a start on Friday’s blog post, since I have rehearsal again tomorrow night and usually like to have Friday posts up in the morning. Catch y’all later! 🙂


#ROW80 Update: FINISHED!

Where my writer friends and I stayed Friday/Saturday.

Okay, it’s 9:30pm and I am only just starting this post, so it’s not going to be long. I did almost just not bother posting at all, but I did want to share my main bit of news.

So remember how my goal for this round was to edit two chapters of AMCF per week and finish said edits around the end of May? And remember how I was about halfway through the first of two chapters last week, but I was going on a trip with my writing group and figured I would make up the rest of the goal by the end of Saturday?

Not only did I make up the rest of the goal, but I finished the edits completely! Sure, there are still one or two scenes that I need to insert in places, but overall, it’s done! 😀 I’ve basically let myself have this week off in celebration (also, two days of intense edits has put me not in the mood for a bit), but I’ll get back to it soon. There’s still plenty of work to be done on the non-writing aspects, but this does put me about a month ahead of schedule, which is pretty awesome.


In other news, today being Wednesday also calls for a WIPpet. Today is the 23rd, and 2 + 3 = 5, so here are five lines. They are actually from a more fleshed out version of this scene from a few weeks ago. Cait is giving Felipe a good-natured telling off for tempting her with the hedge maze.

“I’m sure it would be too much to expect you to feel apologetic for getting me into this mess?” Cait asked as she rose to meet them.

The prince’s eyes widened in exaggerated innocence. “Me?”

Cait shook her head, her lips quirking in the beginnings of a smile. She moved closer to the prince and jabbed a finger in his chest. “Had I tried to say no to your challenge, you would have made it clear I had no choice in the matter.”

To join in on WIPpet Wednesday, simply post an excerpt from your WIP that somehow relates to the date, and join us at this here linky. Thanks to K. L. Schwengel for hosting us. A Round of Words in 80 Days is looked after by Kait Nolan and you can read all about it here. I’m going to go now because it’s getting late (I kept getting distracted reading the IMDB boards for the first episode of Salem; I can’t decide whether I’m refusing to watch another episode or if it’s my new watch-it-so-I-can-complain-about-it show) and sadly the public holiday around here isn’t until Friday. Goodnight all! 🙂


#ROW80 Reminders and #WIPpet Wednesday Jerkiness.

row80-2So it occurred to me on Monday night that while I took in the notes my betas gave me for AMCF, and did a pretty thorough edit on the same draft myself, having the files with my betas’ comments open as I work through the next draft would probably be beneficial. While it has been overall, there have certainly been moments that have given that reminder I’m sure we all dread. Namely, that there are always going to be things that people don’t like and I will never please everybody and it’s probably better not to try. I mean, there are more instances of “Yay, they liked that!” or “Ooh, that’s an idea, Imma run with that” than the negative stuff, but it’s funny how we always get hung up on the things people didn’t like. There was also a moment when I was rereading one of Regi McClain’s comments and realised there was a bit of a plot-hole and I maybe had a bit of an overreaction. I say overreaction because it’s actually quite fine and easily fixed, but I didn’t realise that til a bit later.

My ROW80 goal for this round is to revise two chapters per week… As on Wednesday night, I’m probably about halfway through the first of these chapters. However, my writing group and I are going away over Friday/Saturday to have a full-on editing blitz. So I’m hoping I won’t have any trouble meeting my goal by Saturday night, and may even surpass it. Last week I managed to complete two chapters on Monday night, but then didn’t get any more work done the entire week. Mostly because I got distracted by books written by people other than me, I will admit.

It’s just occurred to me that writing this blog post on the shiny new laptop I just bought on my way home from work is all very well except for all my AMCF stuff is still on the old laptop and that’s going to make posting a WIPpet difficult. I did have one in mind that was only short, let’s see if I can remember it.

“Word is you’re the prince’s mistress and if Princess Maria had been unable to conceive, they would have had you do the job.”

I’ve gone backwards slightly; this is the sort of thing Cait is responding to in the excerpt I posted last week. However it is phrased in the Word Document, it was 25 words, which is adding all the digits for the date except the 2. According to the online word counter I just used, it’s 23, which I suppose is all the digits added together except one of the 4s. Either way, the WIPpet maths works. Please do join us on WIPpet Wednesday! All you need to do is post an excerpt from your current WIP that somehow relates to the date (and we’re pretty lenient about that, really), and then join us at the linky. Thanks to the wonderful K. L. Schwengel who keeps us all in line. 😉

Anyway, as I have Church tomorrow night due to it being Holy Thursday, and I am going away Friday/Saturday, there are a host of things I really need to get done tonight. As such, I will leave this here, and head off. See you all soon! Have a wonderful Easter! 🙂


Today’s #ROW80 and #WIPpet Wednesday

row80-2So I was all, “I probably won’t do a ROW80 update on this first Wednesday of the round, because mine is a weekly goal, and it’s unlikely I will have made a huge amount of progress in two days.”

Which would usually be true, except then I finished editing my two chapters for the week on Monday night. So that was pretty awesome. It helps that the first of these two chapters was one I had already written a fair amount of the new material for, anyway, and the second didn’t require many changes, so it was mostly just copying and pasting from the previous draft and making little edits here and there.

(Last night I then proceeded to write one sentence, before being invited up to my neighbour’s house to run Crucible lines [she is also in the production]. Except we ran no lines whatsoever in the two and a half hours I was up there, and just talked about what we’re reading and the upcoming Jane Austen Festival and how one year we’ll be organised enough to actually attend, and things like that.)

Most of the drastic changes between drafts do take place earlier on in the story, and apart from a few little things to do with the order of certain events, much from where I’m up to through to the end will remain pretty much how it is. There are a few spots where I’ve

I’ve also decided on the subject matter for either August Camp NaNoWriMo or official NaNoWriMo, (depending on what month it is when I am finally done with AMCF) so I’m doing some preliminary research on that to try to figure out an actual plot. Which is weird because I never do research (well, not at the outset), but I’m really set on this topic and the reading is really fun. Sorry my vagueness, I want to keep it to myself for a little while yet.

wednesdaybannerAnyway, today being Wednesday also means WIPpet Wednesday. I am going with something short today because I’ve spent way too long trying to figure out what to post. As for my WIPpet math, I added up all the digits of today’s date and got 20, and then I subtracted 1 because… that’s how many words there are in my excerpt. So ner. Or I guess I could just add up all the digits except for the 1. Whatever. Last week, quite a few of you admired Cait’s forthrightness towards Prince Felipe. This is another example of that, though in this scene, she’s dealing with one of the doctors in the war hospital who is rude to her on a number of occasions.

“Most people here realise that the nurses deserve as much respect as you; perhaps you should do the same.”

The ROW80 linky for today can be found here, and I encourage you to and cheer on some other writers. To join in on WIPpet Wednesday, simply post an excerpt from your current WIP that somehow relates to the date, and then join us at this linky. Many thanks to K. L. Schwengel for hosting. And speaking of Kathi, I have a review of her latest novel, Emergence, scheduled for this Friday, so keep an eye out for that. I’m going to head off now, visit some blogs and then do some more writing. Catch you all later! 😀


Drive-by #WIPPet Wednesday Post

I… don’t really feel like writing a blog post tonight. Wednesday sort of snuck up on me. I apologise for getting around of barely any of your WIPpets in the past week, or even responding to comments on my own. I can’t even really claim to have been too busy or anything, just lazy. Ah, well. I’m still plodding away on AMCF edits. I’ve had this kind of gnawing feeling in the pit of my stomach lately because I really would like to write something else, but I had no real ideas. Nothing too big, just a flash fiction or something, for a break. I browsed the “Adopt a plot” thread on the NaNoWriMo forums and there was one that did take my eye and is percolating at the back of my mind. Depending on how far I get with AMCF (I’m hoping to have edits done by the end of May), I might participate in the August Camp NaNo. Or you know, just start my own thing. Whatevs.

Anyway, my WIPpet math for today is very basic. Two very short paragraphs for the second of the month. I’m trying to flesh out Cait and Felipe’s first post-ball conversation, and actually have it go on for a little while before Cait loses her temper with him. Felipe asks Cait if she has any siblings and when he learns she has no brothers, with his infinite supply of tact, says something to the effect of, “Soooo, if your dad were to die, the rest of you are kinda screwed, huh?” to which Cait essentially replies, “Well, if certain royal families would change our stupid laws so we could inherit stuff, maybe it wouldn’t be a problem.” Felipe thinks this is a silly suggestion.

“But surely you don’t think your own upbringing, or that of most other women in the kingdom, would prepare you to manage property the way your father does?”

“My father studied history, your Highness, not economics or property law. Does that help him any more than the music or the languages I’ve studied?”

This is the bit where I’m relieved Cait is not of the Tumblr generation, because then I’m sure that the term “male privilege” would come up in this conversation, and that’s really not a place I want to go to. I’m all for social justice and activism and such but… Tumblr.

Anyway, I titled this post “Drive-by WIPpet Wednesday” and yet I’ve been writing it for the last hour and a half. Some of that time has been spent actually writing, though, and some of it was spent sending a detailed description of Cait and Felipe and the final scene of AMCF to one of my writer friends, who also happens to also be an artist friend and is going to do me an illustration. I’ve seen some of the art she’s done some art for one of our other friends and I’m really keen to see how this turns out. I’ll scan it to show it off to you all when I receive it.

To join in on WIPpet Wednesday, simply post an snippet from your current WIP that somehow relates to the date. Then join us at the linky and have fun! I’m off to bed now! I’ll catch you all soon!


#WIPPet Wednesday – Sounds about right.

You know how two WIPpet Wednesdays ago, I was bothered by how to make Felipe seem affected by his brother’s death, but not too sympathetic? I figured out a way to do that, namely, by ending the scene about halfway through what I had written. He reacts quite strongly at first, and became more vulnerable later, but there was a spot I could stop when he was still being cranky. Thanks for your suggestions on that. The idea that the way he dealt with the news and treated others in the light of it was something a few of you brought up and was what made me take this direction.

In today’s WIPpet, which takes place at the end of the first day of the big festival at the start of the novel, Ava and Cait are trying to convince their respective younger sisters, Bridget and Ginny, that they did meet Prince Felipe that afternoon. Ginny is annoyed at me at the moment because originally she got to meet him in that scene as well, but now that Ava’s part of things, I decided to swap them.

“Did you really meet him?” Bridget asked.

“We did,” Ava said. “It seemed he was running away from meeting princesses.”

“And what did he think of you two?” Guy asked.

“He said we were charming,” Cait replied with a quirked eyebrow.

“He didn’t even seem to mind when Cait started scolding him,” Ava added.

Cait!” Ginny moaned. She looked mortified, as though Cait insulting the prince might have blackened her own name in some way.

“Well, that certainly sounds like Cait,” Guy replied. “No man is safe.”

That’s my girl. 🙂

Question: does it feel like there are too many dialogue tags in here? I can’t really see any other way to do it, since there are five of them talking, unless I mention actions as well. They’re not really doing much, though; just standing around waiting for their parents to come and meet them.

In other news, I’ve made a tentative goal of working through two chapters of revision each week. They’re not really long chapters, so I think I should be able to manage this. That’ll give me a completion date of around the end of May (approximately). I’m hoping to commit to A Round of Words in 80 Days again when Round 2 starts next month, and this will be my main goal for that as well.

Anyhoo, I think I might leave this here for today and head off. To join in on WIPpet Wednesday, simply post an excerpt from your current WIP that somehow relates to the date, and then hop on over to My Random Muse and join us on the linky. Catch you all soon! 😀
