The Other Side of the Mirror

A Fantasy Tale of the Black Court

sneak peak

 

Her mother’s brave facade crumpled. “She didn’t make it through.”

Images of her baby sister flashed in her memory. Bree sitting in a colorful pen of balls at a fast-food restaurant, her baby face alight with glee. Bree and Cassie hidden under the covers with a flashlight, while Cassie sang protective nursery rhymes to her sister to drive away the nightmares. Bree holding out her hand to Trina when Trina’s parents had been murdered by the Queen and lisping, “You can sleep in my room, I don’t mind.”

A lump the size of the world settled in Cassie’s throat.

“Oh Mama…” There was nothing else to say. It was just the two of them now. And if they stayed here with no water or food, soon there would be no MacElvys left alive.

#

Stepping out from the shelter of the fairy circle was one of the hardest things Cassie had ever done. She looked out at the dark forbidding trees leaning in their threatening circle, swallowed hard, and raised her foot.

“Wait.” Theresa gripped Cassie’s sleeve and tugged her back before she could take that first step out of the guardian pansies. “What if we leave here and Bryanna comes through?”

Release Day! The Other Side of the Mirror

Fantastic Fridays

a semi-erratic fantasy romance blog

WOOT! I published a book this week!

The Other Side of the Mirror, cover art by Viola EstrellaTHE OTHER SIDE OF THE MIRROR, the non-romance, fantasy, short story that precludes BROKEN MIRROR: A Fantasy Romance of the Black Court, is out. And I’m super excited to say that my newsletter subscribers all had the opportunity to download free copies. Of course, it’s a bargain anyway at 99 cents, but I wanted to say “thank you” to everyone who has waited patiently for BROKEN MIRROR, and sending a free copy to newsletter subscribers seemed the best way to do that.

If you’ve wondered what I’ve been up to, it’s been working on getting this book out. Publishing a book has so  many small steps, it’s a wonder they all get done and there is finally a book to read. But it does happen. The other things I’ve been working on are edits for BROKEN MIRROR as well as writing new words on my sexy shifter story. And having a life. Of course, that takes some time too.

So, if my blogs are short and sweet, you’ll know it’s because I’m working hard to get you the next book. 🙂

Lost in Underhill, separated from her sister by a powerful fae spell, Cassie must help her mother and herself get back to Earth. But, strange beasts, evil spirits, and fierce warriors stand in their way. Will they ever get home, or will the last battle with the faery queen prove their undoing?

When the Black Queen of the fae sends ogres to attack their safe-house in Albuquerque, the three remaining MacElvy witches are forced to use a mystical fae globe to escape. But things go very wrong. When Cassie comes-to her sister, Bryanna, has disappeared and Cassie and her mom are stranded in the lands of the fae. With nothing but their magical Gifts to help them they must find Bryanna and make their way home through Underhill, a magical land where strange beasts, evil spirits, and fierce warriors stand in their way. Or will the evil Black Queen track them down and kill them before they can make it to safety?

I’m so excited to have my 2.5 prequel, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MIRROR, as my Sneak Peek today.

The Other Side of the Mirror

A Fantasy Tale of the Black Court

sneak peak

 

Tall, spindly pines loomed over a perfect circle of short, fine grass bordered by purple pansies. The ring of flowers was barely wide enough to hold the two of them huddled together, but outside the ring everything looked cold and dark. Wait…The two of them.

“Mom, where’s Bree?”

Something terrible spasmed across her mother’s face. Then it went blank. “Take another sip, honey.” Her mom pushed the water towards her.

Apprehension crawled along Cassie’s neck, stiffening her back and shoulder muscles. She shook her head. “Where’s Bryanna?”

“I don’t know.” Theresa’s eyes flicked away. Her skin was grey, her lips pressed together in a thin, tight line, as if she’d aged ten years in the time Cassie had been unconscious.

“You don’t know where we are? Or you don’t know where Bryanna is?”

#Fantasy #Romance Two for One #Cover Reveal!

Fantastical Fridays

a blog for the wonderment in all of us

I’m super excited to have two covers to reveal for my fantasy romance series, Tales of the Black Court. My new cover artist, Viola Estrella of Estrella Cover Art, did a fantastic job keeping the essence of the series intact, but also adding some new twists. And that makes this twisted fairy tale romance author very happy.

If you’ve been waiting to find out what happens to Cassie after the end of PRINCE BY BLOOD AND BONE, you won’t have to wait much longer. BROKEN MIRROR will be out soon. I’m hesitant to pick a date since every time I do that fate jumps in and takes a hand, but it is coming. And soon. So, just to tide you over, here is the cover and the blurb!

Broken Mirror cover art by Viola Estrella

BROKEN MIRROR

A Fantasy Romance of the Black Court

by Jessica Aspen

Cassie MacElvy believes she’s a fae princess, but her life of pretty gowns and constant parties is an illusion. Trapped in a twisted spell, Cassie uses her psychic Gift to help the Black Queen hunt down the rebel Prince Kian and his human wife, never knowing she’s hunting her own sister. But when a handsome black-eyed fae kisses her, the fairy tale begins to crumble, and she tumbles down into a confused rabbit hole of memories and magic.

 

Bosco is the court’s fool and a womanizer, but secretly he’s a spy, looking for a missing human psychic. All he has to do is find her and hand her over to his mysterious employer, and he’ll finally have enough power to complete a quest he started nearly a hundred years ago. When he runs into a beautiful fae princess who shouldn’t exist, he knows something is very wrong in the Queen’s court. But lovely Cassie might be the only person who can help him achieve his quest, and Bosco decides he will root out all of Cassie’s secrets, even if it means losing her trust.

And that’s not all!

I know you all are dying for BROKEN MIRROR to be published, but it has so much editing and proofreading—and all that jazz—yet to go through, that it won’t be out for a little longer. BUT WAIT!

I’ve written a little prequel for all of you to tide you over. It’s titled, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MIRROR, and it’s what happened to Cassie and her mother when they were torn from Bryanna’s arms in the first chapter of PRINCE BY BLOOD AND BONE. It’s not a romance, since Cassie doesn’t meet her hero until BROKEN MIRROR, but I think readers will love getting a behind the scenes glimpse into the backstory of both books.

And here is the fabulous cover that Viola did for THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MIRROR.

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MIRROR

A Fantasy Tale of The Black Court

by Jessica Aspen

When the Black Queen of the fae sends ogres to attack their safe-house in Albuquerque, the three remaining MacElvy witches are forced to use a mystical fae globe to escape. But things go very wrong. When Cassie comes-to her sister, Bryanna, has disappeared and Cassie and her mom are stranded in the lands of the fae.

With nothing but their magical Gifts to help them they must find Bryanna and make their way home through Underhill, a magical land where strange beasts, evil spirits, and fierce warriors stand in their way. Or will the evil Black Queen track them down and kill them before they can make it to safety? 

Don’t you love the way Viola has Cassie behind that super cool Evil Queen mirror? And, thanks to my husband, Jeff, for suggesting that if it’s in a mirror, the image should be reversed. Don’t know why I didn’t think about it, but he’s the visual person in the family. I’m just the writer!

Want a free copy of THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MIRROR? Newsletter subscribers will have the opportunity to read and review it for free. So, if you haven’t signed up yet for my newsletter, CLICK HERE and sign up, then keep an eye out for the free copy announcement. You’ll also get a free bonus book.

I’ll also be publishing this book in May as a serial on Wattpad, so another option is to join Wattpad and follow me.

And of course, like the other books in the Tales of the Black Court Fantasy Romance series, it will be available for sale on Ibooks, Amazon, Nook Press, Kobo and ARE.
