My Friend Rommy Has A Book Out!

My dear friend, Rommy Cortez-Driks, has a book coming out on November 13th, and you can pre-order it now! What kind of book is it? Well, it’s full of faery tales. But they’re not quite your ordinary faery tale. They’re . . . well, they’re a little off from your ordinary faery tale. They’re a bit bent, you see. Merrily zig-zagged. Strange. Odd. Eccentrically eccentric. Lovably weird. And a bit bonkers. Rommy’s writing reminds me of Neil Gaiman, with a dash of Douglas Adams, and a hint of Terry Pratchett for good measure. She’s a little like Stephen Moffat on happy-gas. But in a good way. Seriously, you should check out her book. You’ll love her take on Faery Godmothers . . . who they are, the politics of their profession, and what they’re most certainly not. And mermaids. And what they get up to when they’re . . . well, when pirates and magic are involved, and I’ll say no more on that subject. For real, go check out her book, and pre-order it right this very second. Your life might just depend on reading these faery tales. You never know when you’ll need to know the vital information contained in this volume! Well, okay. It’s not “Doomesday Prepper” important. But they are fun stories, and you should definitely give them a whirl.
