Join us in Celebrating the birthday of the second edition of Andrew McDowell’s Mystical Greenwood.
Dermot is a fifteen-year-old boy in the kingdom of Denú. He has always longed for more in life. Then everything changes after he sees a gryphon and crosses paths with a reclusive healer.
Soon, he and his brother Brian have no choice but to leave their home. They embark on a journey through many forests. They meet an old man and unicorns, witness an important birth, and must evade fire-breathing dragons and dark-armored soldiers that serve an evil sorcerer determined to subjugate Denú.
A legendary coven must now return after years in hiding. Dermot and Brian slowly realize there is something deeper among the trees and creatures, but is there also something more about themselves? Can they protect those they love, or will all Denú be consumed by darkness?
Just a quick stop by…Fae Corps faeries are quite busy with trying to get books published and such. We have two new anthologies out Seeking stories and Grandmother’s Wisdom and we are about to release Serena Mossgraves’s Poetry Death Becomes Her. We are working on getting the preorder ready for Andrew McDowell’s Mystical Greenwood (link coming soon) and A poetry volume for the poet Nk.
We have several other indie authors coming up. We have a couple of Meet the author posts that are needing to be posted. (I am hoping to get at least one this week) The call for the next anthology is out. (deadline is August 1st)
So keep your eyes peeled. This blog is over the next few months going to be popping with news and updates on upcoming books. Our Party Room group on Fb is also going to be getting busy with celebrating the new releases.
We at Fae Corps are happy to announce the addition of a new author to our ranks…Ok well, he has written for our anthologies before. We are about to release the second edition of Mystical Greenwood by Andrew McDowell. We hope to release when he is ready more books by him as well. I will be adding a page for him with his bio and more information about his book. Welcome to the Fae, Andrew!
Watch here to see the new Cover reveal and further information on Mystical Greenwood in the next couple of months. The release is scheduled for the end of August.
She does all of this while in College, being a freelance editor, and producing her own books. I have personally been allowed to be one of her ARC readers in the past. Her books are so well written. I have definitely enjoyed what I have read by her.
When we asked her about what got her started, Cait had this to say. “I started writing one day partially out of boredom and partially because a book I read didn’t go exactly how I wanted it to. I decided to write my own book so I could include anything I wanted, but I had no idea at the time that I would end up here. I only wrote academically before that and hated it. However, I have always loved reading. My love of books is really what got me where I am today. It’s why I started Functionally Fictional, which led to me becoming involved in the book community.”
When asked why She chose to be a Indie, Here is Cait’s response. “Through Functionally Fictional, I work with indie authors to promote their books. Then I started working as part of the indie staff at YA Books Central, and I kind of fell into this amazing group of authors. They were so encouraging, and I saw the support they had for one another, and it really made me decide on this route. Plus, I like the control aspect of it all. It’s my book, and it’s getting out into the world how I want it to.”
About her hobbies and such ,”Most of my time goes to reading and writing, but I also love creating spreads in my bullet journal, painting, listening to music, going to concerts, and watching movies and TV.” When asked how she deals with Writer’s Block her response was “I don’t really suffer from writer’s block per se. It’s more that I have some days I just can’t/don’t want to write. I’m working on more consistent writing habits. For example, I am trying to write for an hour at least four days a week. I joined a group that does writing sprints four nights a week, which is helping a lot.”
Cait lives in Indiana with her two obnoxious cats – Koda and Azriel, Whom she loves greatly. We here at Fae Corps look forward to seeing what Cait Marie will be doing in the future. Be sure to check her current listings at https://caitmarieh.com/my-books/
