Fairy tales

I'm back -- finally! After a long, strange summer that was less than productive due to an unbelievably successful "side project" (as well as some very obnoxious health issues), I am back in Everland. And, as usual, I'm pulling a lot of inspiration from fairy tales.

I grew up on the one below, and it's currently providing a wealth of inspiration for Sever. The question is: who will turn out to be the prince? ;-) As far as I can tell, fans of The Ever Series in the United States seem to be rooting for Ever; fans in the UK seem partial to Alex. Interesting, no?

As for me, the prince of my heart tends to be whichever character's scene I'm writing at the moment. Right now ... Alex is my man.

Stay tuned. Teasers to come!


P.S. -- When I have a firm publish date, I'll post it here!


  1. Oh my gosh C.J.! I wish Sever was coming out already! I can honestly say that I'm going out of my mind to know what happens next. But I'm glad you're back! :) And it is interesting and strange. I thought that everyone would naturally go for Ever because he seems like the main guy of the story (and our/my hero) but not everyone does after all. I'm kind of scared that Sever will show me why UK fans are right. Can't wait to hear more!

    You're fan,

  2. Hey, Hillary! It's so good to be back. I missed you! I absolutely love getting your point of view on stuff -- you have so many great insights. Thanks for hanging in there with me! It means a lot! ;-) C.J.

    1. I'm glad you're back as well C.J. I missed you too! And thanks! I like giving insight whenever needed :) And I'll always be a fan! I believe in you're work and in you!
