As part of our Tenth Anniversary celebration, we’d like to congratulate and promote our authors who have gone on to be published outside of fandom. We’re very proud to be part of a community that encourages and supports its members as they reach for their dreams!
The first author we’re acknowledging is Rebecca Kovar – Melenka
– who, along with writing fanfiction, posted the first draft of her novel, Faire Play
, here at TPP. The story has undergone many revisions since that initial post, but its roots are here.
In addition, Rebecca has short stories in two anthologies: February Femmes Fatales
and At the Stroke of Thirteen
Rebecca’s website can be found here

.Sometimes, a Kiss isn't just a kiss...
Once, she dreamed of working at a Renaissance faire. Now, she can't ever leave.
Heather revels in the attentions of the charming knight, Sebastian--until he gives her a magical Kiss that turns her into an emotional vampire. Without the reactions of a live audience to feed on, Heather will become an empty husk. Unfortunately, Sebastian doesn't mention that before he disappears.
While adjusting to her new life, Heather impresses the Court, befriends a knife-juggling cynic, and is cast as a fighter opposite Jocko, a handsome rogue whose cavalier attitude frustrates her almost as much as his kisses do.
Before she can decide whether to open her heart again, Sebastian returns with a dark plan. If Heather can't stop him, he'll overthrow the Court and turn the unsuspecting audience into mindless slaves--and Heather can kiss any future with Jocko goodbye.
So she does what she does best. Fight.
