To continue our Tenth Anniversary festivities celebrating our fantastic community that encourages and supports its members as they reach for their dreams, we’re spotlighting our authors who have gone on to be published outside of fandom.




Today, we’re shining the spotlight on Little Beloved, author of the award-winning SSHG Marriage Law fic, Denial.

Writing as Caireann Shannon, she authored the delightful “Little Monsters,” in which a mother unwittingly joins a support group for parents of monstrous children. The story can be found in J.L. Aldis’s anthology, Thoroughly Modern Monsters, published in 2013 by Story Spring Publishing.

The Petulant Poetess congratulates Cai on her success and looks forward to reading more of her work, whether in fandom or outside of it!

Happy Hallowe'en!

To continue our Tenth Anniversary festivities celebrating a community that encourages and supports its members as they reach for their dreams, we're spotlighting our authors who have gone on to be published outside of fandom.

Today, we’re shining the spotlight on Shiv. Writing as Antioch Grey, she has two stories in Story Spring Publishing’s Thoroughly Modern Monsters, a 2013 short story anthology edited by J.L. Aldis and two more stories in Aldis’s upcoming anthology, Immanence.

The stories in Thoroughly Modern Monsters offer tantalizing glimpses at how the icons of horror – vampires, demons, ogres, and trolls, to name a few – would function in today’s world. Antioch’s two stories reflect this basic theme, but they couldn’t be more different from one another.

In “The Devil Makes Work for Idle Hands,” an incubus meets a demon near the back door to Hell, with chilling results.

In “The Proper Task of Life,” Susan, a tourist, meets an artist and his friend, who is definitely not what he seems. But then, perhaps, nobody is.

The Petulant Poetess congratulates Shiv on her frighteningly excellent success!

Boo!

To continue our Tenth Anniversary festivities celebrating a community that encourages and supports its members as they reach for their dreams, we're spotlighting our authors who have gone on to be published outside of fandom.

Did you know that our own ladyofthemasque is also the prolific novelist Jean Johnson? Jean is the author of the immensely popular Sons of Destiny, First Salik War, Theirs Not to Reason Why, and the Guardians of Destiny series along with numerous stand-alone novels, novellas, and short stories.

You can visit her website here. Her Amazon author page can be found here.

Below is the cover and blurb of her most recent book, The Terrans, which is the first book of her newest series!



Jean Johnson's first novel in an explosive new science fiction trilogy set in the world of the national bestselling Theirs Not to Reason Why series—set two-hundred years earlier, at the dawn of the First Salik War…

Born into a political family and gifted with psychic abilities, Jacaranda MacKenzie has served as a border-watcher and even spent time as a representative on the United Planets Council. Now she just wants to spend her days in peace and quiet as a translator—but the universe has other plans…

Humans have long known that they would encounter more alien species, and while those with precognitive abilities agree a terrible war is coming, they do not agree on who will save humanity—a psychic soldier or a politician.

But Jackie is both.

After she is pressured into rejoining the Space Force to forestall the impending calamity, Jackie makes an unsettling discovery. Their new enemy, the Salik, seem to be rather familiar with fighting Humans—as if their war against humanity had already begun…

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, Her Amazon author page is 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.

This week's Fabulous Fic Friday admin rec was for Babbity Git by Pokeystar. Juniperus says, "Do you love SSHG? Have you ever seen Cary Grant in and Leslie Caron in Father Goose? Did it ever occur to you that an SSHG/Father Goose mashup was meant to be? Well, here it is. It's brilliant. Funny. Sad. Wonderful. With Severus Snape as Cary Grant, Hermione Granger as Leslie Caron (it would be weird the other way), and a troupe of wonderful young witches, all stranded on a hotly contested Pacific atoll during World War II. Read it. You'll love it." Read it at: http://thepetulantpoetess.com/viewstory.php?sid=21841
