Faerie has secrets…

Love or family?

Jamie MacKinnion makes the hardest decision of his very long life, and all of Faerie feels the wrath and heartache of the Faery Queen.

Can Faerie and its denizens survive an all-powerful ruler’s pain manifest in natural disasters?

Even if they can, the Dark King has schemes of his own and Solitary Fae cannot be trusted to live in peace.

As Faerie fractures and the lives of mortals and fae intertwine even more, the lines between what’s right and what’s easy becomes blurry for even the best of them.

And nothing is what it seems.

Damsels in distress, curses, echoes of faery tales and tragic love affairs swirl together in sixteen stories found in a dragon’s lair by a curious half-fae.

Discover their secrets and enter the realm of the fae.

Ronel Janse van Vuuren infuses her writing with folklore, magic and mythology. She shares some of her work for free on WattpadINK: Skryf in Afrikaans and on her blog Ronel the Mythmaker under #TwistedTaleTuesday for flash fiction pieces and sometimes longer short stories on Sundays.

Every second Thursday of the month she shares her research on a particular folklore topic for #FolkloreThursday and how it plays out in her writing.

For the first Wednesday of the month, she shares her writing highs and lows with fellow writers of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group.

For every third Wednesday of the month she shares writerly wisdom – either her own or a guest’s – with other authors with the #AuthorToolboxBlogHop.

She is a regular contributor over on Writer to Writers, sharing writing advice (among other things) and she’s also a regular contributor on Writing Wranglers and Warriors.

In 2016 she won the honour of being Writer of the Year on INK and in 2017 she came second. (For more, check out the Accolades page and My Writing pages.)

2017 was an extraordinary year for Ronel in publishing:

Two of her short stories (Hoop op Oukersaand and Saphira en die Toorlied) were published in INK’s anthology Inkspraak.

Two of her short stories (Just Deserts and Lights) were accepted and published in the anthology Cinderella Reimagined – a project where authors actually receive royalties on books sold.

Her short story Black Moon was accepted for publication in the Agorist Writers’ Workshop’s third Clarion Call Anthology Unbound.

All of this somehow led to her own – surprise publication as part of a competition prize – short story collection Eens… (An Afrikaans book she’s currently working on rewriting in English, scheduled for publication in 2018).

Though not intended, all of the above fall under the New Adult genre. Readers can find various moments of hope, inspiration, questions and fun in her themes of love, anarchy, sisterhood and power (among others) while enjoying her dark humour in the – for the most part – dark fantasy stories.

Rosh is a puppeteer by trade, and just like how she brings her puppets to life, she does so with voicing her characters. With a beautifully light voice, Rosh brings everything to the table. She can nail any accent, and gets invested in your book like no one else
