Faeries and Black Moon
by Jessica McQuay
Hello everyone! First I’d like to take a moment to thank Deb for hosting me today! It’s an honor to be here posting with your followers. =)
Growing up, I was a huge fan of fairies. I had mad Tinkerbell love going on. LOL! I watched every movie she made an appearance in, read every book I could get my hands on with her in it and I collected tons of little porcelain and glass Tink figurines. I couldn’t get enough of the magical creatures with wings. I was obsessed with the ability to fly and the fairy attachment to nature.
As I grew, my love waned, but only slightly. It started to morph into something else. Of course I learned along the way that fairies weren’t real. But I was still captivated by the idea of magic…but not just any magic, fairy magic. Then I discovered the world of books out there about fey! I shed my Tinkerbell loving days for the magical world of the Faery.
Black Moon is about a girl that believes she’s ordinary. But within a few pages of the story she finds out that she is anything but. She is then thrust into a magical, foreign world where the things she grew up believing were fairytales are actually based on reality. She gets to experience not only the life of a Fae, but the life of Fae royalty. The land of Varulean, (the Faery dimension), is run by the Queen and the King, but the Queen is the one with the power. The line of Fae women are the ones that take over the throne when the time comes. And the magical abilities of the Fae on Varulean range from simple nature related spells to being able to read the minds of others.
My love for Faeries ties into the magical feeling you have as a child. You know the one I’m talking about, right? Where you believe anything is possible and magic is real and Santa really DOES bring you presents every Christmas Eve! Despite being forced to grow up, that sense of magic has never left me. Yep, you read that right. I still believe in magic. I just hope that I can pass that same sense of something magical on to my own children. =D
Thank you again to Deb! I truly appreciate you allowing me to stop by and talk about my love of Fae with your readers!
Happy Reading everyone!

“Am I losing my mind?”
Paige couldn’t help but question her sanity. What other explanation could there be for her hearing a conversation held barely above a whisper in the back of a classroom full of students? What about coming home to find one of those very classmates lying in wait in the darkness of her home, ready to attack her?
Confused, frustrated and feeling every ounce of her social ostracism, Paige confides in the one person she’s always been able to count on: her mom. But when her mom reveals a deeply rooted, unbelievable family secret, Paige discovers her world is filled with more than she ever imagined possible. A world where fairytales live alongside nightmares and secrets are the glue that binds them together. Suddenly no one is who they seem and Paige is faced with more questions than answers. Can she survive in a world filled with creatures scarier than anything she could imagine and where deceit runs as thick as blood? Or will the truth send her over the edge?
