Description

“If Janet Evanovich teamed with a young adult, fairy-tale author like Marissa Meyer (the Lunar Chronicles) or Alex Flinn (Beastly), the result might be something like Christina Bauer’s Wolves and Roses.” –Blue Ink Review

Seventeen-year-old Bryar Rose has a problem. She’s descended from one of the three magical races—shifters, fairies, or witches. That makes her one of the Magicorum, and Magicorum always follow a fairy tale life template. In Bryar’s case, that template should be Sleeping Beauty.

“Should” being the key word.

Trouble is, Bryar is nowhere near the sleeping beauty life template. Not even close. She doesn’t like birds or woodland creatures. She can’t sing. And she certainly can’t stand Prince Philpot, the so-called “His Highness of Hedge Funds” that her aunties want her to marry. Even worse, Bryar’s having recurring dreams of a bad boy hottie and is obsessed with finding papyri from ancient Egypt. What’s up with that?

All Bryar wants is to attend a regular high school with normal humans and forget all about shifters, fairies, witches, and the curse that Colonel Mallory the Magnificent placed on her. And she might be able to do just that–if only she can just keep her head down until her eighteenth birthday when the spell that’s ruined her life goes buh-bye.

But that plan gets turned upside down when Bryar Rose meets Knox, the bad boy who’s literally from her dreams. Knox is a powerful werewolf, and his presence in her life changes everything, and not just because he makes her knees turn into Jell-O. If Bryar can’t figure out who—or what—she really is, it might cost both her and Knox their lives… as well as jeopardize the very nature of magic itself.

Creating A New Series And Characters

By Christina Bauer

As a writer, I love creating new worlds. Now that I’m about to launch my twelfth book, WOLVES AND ROSES, I thought I’d share some of my processes for world creating. For those who are interested, here they are!

I Start Off With A Question. Normally.

For my series ANGELBOUND, I wondered what it would be like if the folks who ran the afterlife—angels, demons and the like—were just as mixed up as we mortals were. That became the foundation of my world building. In the case of WOLVES AND ROSES, I was planning to write an adult werewolf book and then a totally different first chapter came out of my head pretty clearly. It had Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, the evil queen from Snow White, and Red Riding Hood…All in a basement in mid-town Manhattan…and all in a therapy group for girls who have failed their fairy tale life template. Talk about a shocker. I loved it.

I Spend Way Too Much Time on Pinterest

When I’m in world-building mode, I’m a bit of a Pinterest junkie. In fact, one of my biggest problems during this stage is that Pinterest locks me out because I’m pinning to quickly NOT to be a bot (I take that as a compliment, by the way.) I make boards for all sorts of things, from settings to characters to a general board I call “Needs a Home.” I’ll dump a ton of pictures in and then prune out the ones that don’t work until I get a first visual draft. For WOLVES AND ROSES, the character of Knox went through a TON of visual revisions until I settled on the final.

Languages, Languages, Languages

I like to assign different language bases to the peoples in my worlds. I’ve used German, Latin, and Nordic languages. My favorite is Swahili, which I had been hoarding for a long time before I got to use it in my BEHOLDER series.

***SPOILER ALERT***

For WOLVES AND ROSES, the language base is really Egyptian hieroglyphs, which become more and more significant as the series goes on.

Write the Thing

I used to get stuck (as in REALLY stuck) on the planning stage. Now I do some planning while I’m writing another series, so I find that by the time I’m ready to start the newness, things have been percolating in my mind. That’s certainly what happened with WOLVES AND ROSES…I had no idea what was going on there! In this case, I have eight books in total mapped out in the series. We’ll see if the plans stay solid or I have more surprises in store when I sit down to write them. Whatever it ends up being, I hope you enjoy the Fairy Tales of the Magicorum!

#BlogTour: Thrax by Christina Bauer @CB_Bauer @MyMonsterHouse @XpressoTours #Interview #Giveaway

I am pleased to be a part of this blog tour organised by Xpresso Book Tours, this is for Thrax the fourth book in the Angelbound Origins series. I have an author interview with Christina Bauer which I hope you all enjoy and there is a giveaway which you shouldn’t miss.

I’ve read the first book in the series and intend to continue it, here are links to the first three books for those who want to jump in!

Book One: Angelbound
Book Two: Scala
Book Three: Acca

Description

Myla Lewis has married Prince Lincoln, and now they’re expecting! All the after-realms rejoice. Myla should be happy too, but she has a serious problem. The day after their honeymoon ended, Myla’s real husband disappeared.

The man who’s sharing her bed is an imposter.

Myla tries explaining about “Evil Lincoln,” but no one will listen. The reason? People think that Myla’s supernatural pregnancy is making her cray cray. Mostly because that’s what Evil Lincoln is telling everyone, and that man’s a great liar. What a creep.

There’s no way Myla will take this lying down, though. She’s going to rescue her man, and she has a pretty good idea where he’s being held. With her best friend, Cissy, along to help, Myla sneaks off to Earth. All she has to do is blend in with the humans, avoid Evil Lincoln, and find her real man before the baby arrives. How hard can it be?

Thrax - Tour Banner

Author Interview

Thanks for taking joining me on my blog today, I’m so pleased to have you and hope you enjoy answering these questions.

Tell us a bit about Thrax
THRAX is the story of what happens when you’re a kick-ass demon chick with a totally awesome and supportive hottie prince of a hubby…but that sweet guy gets replaced by a douchebag body double. You go find your man.

How does it feel to follow characters through a series like this?
It’s been a fun journey to bring Myla and Lincoln through meeting each other and into love and marriage. To set some context, I’m a big fan of reading myths from other cultures, and it struck me how all our Western stories end with ‘and they lived happily ever after’ while Eastern cultures tend to BEGIN with stuff like ‘And so Rama and Sita were married.’ That’s a totally different perspective, and I wanted to explore it as a writer. Turns out, that’s not so easy, in part because there isn’t a huge canon of Western literature in this area to draw from. In the case of THRAX, it’s about the personal growth that can happen after you’re married, in this case with Myla.

Where do you come up with your ideas?
I’m super careful about all the storytelling that I consume. “Garbage in, garbage out” as the saying goes! I’m a very visual writer, so use Pinterest boards a lot: https://www.pinterest.com/bauermonster/.  I love movies, and I get a lot of great material from there. And of course, I read about a three-five books a week on average. I work very hard to find authors with fresh ideas, and when I run across someone awesome, I review them on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/1740882?shelf=read

After that? It’s just a lot of hard work. Fortunately, I also seem to have an imagination that doesn’t seem to function like everyone else’s. That’s something that was a huge disadvantage for me for a long time (curse you, standardized testing!) but these days, it seems to be paying off.

Which song(s) would be the soundtrack of this novel?
THRAX had a few classic tunes that I kept going back to. Queen’s Find Somebody to Love is featured heavily in the book, so I listed to that non-stop for days.

I also really got into the version of Sweet Dreams Are Made of This which was done for the Wrinkle in Time trailer. For me, this song encapsulated Myla’s point of view in the beginning of the book: everyone says this is supposed to be awesome, but she knows it isn’t right.

What is your writing process?
It all starts when I come up with a question. In this case, it was “what if Lincoln got replaced by an evil body double?” After that, I ask a lot more questions: “Who would want to do that to Lincoln? Why? What do they stand to gain?” I’ve written twenty-plus notebooks filled with the full world of Angelbound. I’d created Ethan a long time ago and tossed him because he didn’t work for the story. So, it was great to bring him in here.

Once I have the bones of the idea, then I write an outline to share with my editor (you’re a goddess, GIE!). From there, I start writing and that’s where the fun begins! I got half-way through THRAX before a certain special character showed up (his name starts with I) and damn that was AWESOME!

So you know, something that’s REALLY helped with my process is all the support I get from readers. When I was writing THRAX, I was like ‘what? This is way out there!’ But I know you guys dig innovative stuff, so I went with it, and I’ve been really happy with the early response.

Why YA Fantasy novels? What drew you to the genre?
Like many writers for young adults, I had a pretty sucktastic youth. So part of me is always trapped in that age range, for good and bad. When I was a teen, the Lord of the Rings really helped me survive. Literally. In particular, I loved how Frodo was just a regular guy who was given a horrible burden, but our hobbit hero never gave up. That meant a lot to me. As a result, I write YA Fantasy because I imprinted on it, more or less.

Who are your inspirations in the genre?
I love Tolkien, naturally. Edith Hamilton also wrote a great book on Greco Roman Mythology that inspires me quite a lot. Hamilton has a gift for making tales of gods and goddesses come alive! I also had a copy of the original Grimm’s Brother’s Fairy Tales, aka the pre-Disney stuff. Loved that too.

If you were to try another genre what would it be?
Does science fiction count? I know it gets lumped in with fantasy a lot, but I have some ideas about a kick-ass space ship captain that’s been rattling around my head.

What book have you most recently read?
I just finished Wild Blood (Cyborg Shifters #1) by Naomi Lucas. As the title promises, Lucas does some very cool stuff by combining cyborgs with the traditional shifter genre that I really enjoyed. Thumbs up!

What book do you most wish you had written?
Oh, I definitely wish I had the ability to create entire languages like Tolkien did, do it would have to say my dream book to write is the Lord of the Rings. Damn, but Tolkien was super-smart. Plus, he wrote much of LoTR as a series of letters to his sons who were fighting in WWII (Tolkien himself fought in WWI), and that spirit of trying to encourage someone else to persevere comes through so clearly. Truly beautiful.

Thanks so much for spending time on BrizzleLass Books and wishing you all the best with the novel.
Thank YOU for asking me such awesome and personalized questions! I love it when bloggers take the time to really dig into my work and process!

#BlogTour: Angelbound by Christina Bauer @CB_Bauer @MyMonsterHouse @XpressoTours #GuestPost #Giveaway

Christina Bauer has released the first book in her Angelbound Origins series as an audiobook. This tour which has been organised by Xpresso Book Tours will tell you all you need to know about this fabulous book! I reviewed Angelbound not long ago and you can find the review here. Today I have an interview with Christina and there is also a tour-wide giveaway for you.

Description

*Now an audio book!*

Eighteen year old Myla Lewis is a girl who loves two things: kicking ass and kicking ass. She’s not your every day quasi-demon, half-demon and half-human, girl. For the past five years, Myla has lived for the days she gets to fight in Purgatory’s arena. When souls want a trial by combat for their right to enter heaven or hell, they go up against her, and she hasn’t lost a battle yet.

But as she starts her senior year at Purgatory High, the arena fights aren’t enough to keep her spirits up anymore. When the demons start to act weird, even for demons, and the King of the Demons, Armageddon, shows up at Myla’s school, she knows that things are changing and it’s not looking good for the quasi-demons.

Myla starts to question everything, and doesn’t like the answers she finds. What happened seventeen years ago that turned the quasi-demons into slave labor? Why was her mom always so sad? And why won’t anyone tell her who her father is? Things heat up when Myla meets Lincoln, the High Prince of the Thrax, a super sexy half-human and half-angel demon hunter. But what’s a quasi-demon girl to do when she falls for a demon hunter? It’s a good thing that Myla’s not afraid of breaking a few rules. With a love worth fighting for, Myla’s going to shake up Purgatory.

My Top Five Non-Human Characters

By Christina Bauer

My book, ANGELBOUND, tells the story of a part demon girl who falls in love with a part angel prince. If you aren’t familiar with the book, there’s a quick trailer right here. In any case, I’m now doing an author tour to celebrate the launch of ANGELBOUND as an audiobook on Audible and iTunes, and I’ve been asked about my top five non-human characters by the amazing Brizzle Lass! Without further ado, here they are:

Number Five: Grendel’s Mother
Maybe you remember the story of Beowulf from high school, but as a refresher, it’s the tale of a heroic king (Beowulf) who has to kill an evil monster (Grendel.) That part is relatively easy for our so-called hero. But it’s Grendel’s Mother who gets pissed off and really causes Beowulf some trouble. I love the character of Grendel’s Mother because she’s a badass monster-demon-beyotch who doesn’t give a crap if her kid is nasty, she’s not going to stand aside when her boy is taken down by some Anglo Saxon. As a mom, I can respect that. Totally.

Number Four: Isis
Isis is a goddess from Ancient Egypt. She’s married to Horus, who’s a major dumbass. Let me explain. Horus gets invited to a party by Seth, the God of Chaos. Not only does Horus go to this party (who goes to a party hosted by Chaos?) but he also agrees to let Seth seal him inside a sarcophagus (aka coffin). Like I said, dumbass. Long story short, Horus ends up getting killed and chopped up into little itty-bitty god-bits. Isis spends years putting him back together so that they can have sex one last time, conceive Horus, and therefore place the universe back in balance again, and all because Isis is just that awesome.

Number Three: Athena
Athena is a super warrior who works smarter, not harder. Here’s one of my favorite examples of that in action. One time, Poseidon challenges Athena to a battle of power. Whoever wins then gets to have a city named after them. The fight begins. Poseidon takes out his mighty trident, zaps a cliff side, and makes a massive water spout.

Ooh, aah.

Now, Athena is the only goddess who can wield Zeus’s thunderbolt, so she could easily beat Poseidon in the zapping-shit department. Instead, she steps up to the crevasse where Poseidon made a mess, drops in a seed, and makes the very first olive tree. Olives became the mainstay of Greek life, considering how they traded olive oil and built ships from the wood. She totally wins the fight and Athens is instantly named after her. It’s a major goddess fuck-you moment where brains win over brawn. Love it.

Number Two: The Original Ash Maiden
In the Grimm’s fairy tale version of this story, Ash Maiden’s big problem was not household chores, but that she missed her dead mother. Ash Maiden had grief work to do, and for those of you who’ve lost someone, you know what a bitch that can be. Every day, Ash Maiden wept by her mother’s grave. Over the tears, her tears sprouted into a tree… And from that tree dropped her gown and glass slippers. Its branches were also the home of a little bird who helped Ash Maiden to find her prince.

So, in this version, it wasn’t housework that held Ash maiden back, but the mourning that she needed to do for her mother. Once that was complete, our heroine created her own magic in order to change her life. And that, in my opinion, is pretty badass.

Number One: Myla Lewis
Hey, it’s my list here. So am I going to make the character from my own book my number one favorite? Hell yeah! Myla Lewis is a part-demon girl who has powers over not one, but two deadly sins: lust and wrath.

Here’s why I wrote her that way. I wanted to create a story about a teenage girl who dealt with anger and lust because those aren’t topics where there existed a ton of fun literature for girls. Also, I wanted Myla to actually like kicking ass and, eventually, (SPOILER ALERT) falling in love-slash-lust. Bottom line? Both of these states of mind can be cool if you’re in control… And that’s what Myla’s all about. I’ve been thrilled that readers have responded to her so strongly.

One final note about Myla: you can now hear her voice in the audiobook version of ANGELBOUND (which I narrate.) I made a little video of myself doing the different voices in the book, so you can get a feel for what she sounds like in four minutes or less. I also-also uploaded a sample of the final book here.

All in all, thanks so much for asking about my favorite non-human characters…I had a fun time answering this question! In case you think of more queries, I’m always up for reader interaction, and more information on how to contact me is listed below.

Review

I bought this a few years ago and then it got stuck in that huge TBR pile on my kindle. Last month Christina very kindly sent me another copy to review which gave me the boot up the backside I needed to actually sit down and read it, so thank you Christina!

Overall, I loved this story, Myla is a quasi-demon, half-human half-demon, living in purgatory and slave to every other being in the underworld. But it hasn’t always been that way and Myla really wants to get to the bottom of things. As she digs closer to the truth she meets Lincoln a Thrax, half-human half-angel, supposedly sworn-enemies these two just can’t keep away from each other and it becomes apparent that Lincoln may hold some answers to Myla’s questions.

Now, I struggled with Myla’s relationship with her best friend, they spoke to each other as if they were twelve and it really grated on me when I was reading the dialogue between them. I didn’t feel that Myla’s dialogue was as young or irritating with other people just her best friend and it became a sore spot for me throughout the book that I would have to deal with it.

I loved that Myla was an arena fighter in this world, a quasi-demon who fights evil souls to keep them out of heaven. I loved the dynamic here, her eagerness to fight, her toughness. This was enjoyable to read and I would have loved to see more of these fights and scenes included.

I thoroughly enjoyed the early scenes with Lincoln while they were mistaking attraction for irritation. There was so much scope here and some of these situations are hilarious. Myla is such a strong character and even in this world where she is part of a people who are treated as slaves she still stands tall and fights for herself.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, it had an interesting premise, the world building could have been slightly stronger with a bit more depth (but I admit I do like a tad more description than a lot of people), the characters were well rounded, some funny, quirky, serious, annoying, and even downright unlikable.

I will definitely be continuing the series and seeing where it goes from here.
