Publication date: October 22nd 2019
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Romance
Hell hath no fury like a goddess scorned…
As Champion, Carita of Bel Auryn thought she would spend her days fighting demons. Instead, she is drawn into the latest scheme of the Moon Goddess, Ruby: a contest to choose a man who will have the “honour” of fathering her child. When Ruby encourages Carita to choose a man for herself, she picks the man she is most drawn to–and immediately regrets it.
Lucian Veradayne is the Lord of Death. He knows he must win Ruby’s game at any cost. It doesn’t matter that he has avoided her for two thousand years. Nor that she tried to kill their first child. And it really doesn’t matter that he would much rather woo Carita. The Soul Well has given Lucian a prophecy: he and Ruby must have another child. A child who will save the world.
Dealing with their mutual attraction will be the least of Lucian and Carita’s problems. They are not the only ones who have been drawn into Ruby’s game. Someone else wants to win. Someone who wants Ruby dead. Will Carita and Lucian be able to protect her long enough for a victor to be named? And if they succeed, will they be able to walk away from each other to ensure the prophecy is fulfilled?
Sealer’s Game is a 55,000 word fantasy romance novella about the King of the Underworld, a kick-butt warrior priestess, and a ruthless goddess who will stop at nothing to get her own way. It contains language, descriptions of violence, and sexual themes that may not be appropriate for all readers. Recommended for ages 18+.
Top 10 Movies
The Princess Bride
Fantasy, romance, comedy, adventure… This movie has everything I love and is extremely quotable to boot. I’ve loved this from the first time I saw it and it’s a film I never grow tired of.
Hands down the best video game to film adaptation ever. This is another film I could watch again and again. I remember being in my early teens and writing a lot of Sailor Moon x MK crossover fiction.
One of my fave films to this day, Legally Blond entered my life on a snowy evening in my first year of university when I was particularly homesick. I still remember randomly grabbing it at a department store, bringing it back to my dorm room, and being completely entranced.
Beauty and the Beast
My favorite animated Disney film and a heavy influence on my writing. I’ve always loved Beauty and the Beast retellings and this is the version that most quickly comes to mind when I think about the characters. My favorite part is when they sing “Something There That Wasn’t There Before” and the bond between Belle and Beast begins to shift. I actually have Funkos of the characters in their costumes from that scene.
The Halloween Tree
This Halloween special is based on a book by Ray Bradbury and has been part of my Halloween traditions as long as I can remember. I’ve always had an interest in stories about death and the supernatural, and this tale, with it’s emphasis on having the courage to face Death “eyeball to eyeball” is something that has fed into that for the majority of my life.
Kate and Leopold
Time travel and fish out of water narratives are two tropes that I really like, so this movie was right up my alley from word go. I also like the fact that in a word where women are increasingly pressured to place being in the workforce above all else that Kate had the guts to ultimately go after love. Even when that meant taking a giant leap (literally) of faith and entering a world very different than the one she was used to.
Made of Honor
A romantic comedy about two imperfect people who are perfect for each other. I am often someone who will skip past friends to lovers stories because they don’t hold enough drama to keep my attention. But watching Tom realize how important Hannah is to him, and the antics he is willing to go through once he is faced with the possibility of losing her, never gets old for me.
The Empire Strikes Back
I love the entire original Star Wars trilogy, but this is my favorite film of the three. Love, betrayal, difficult choices, learning and leaving, loss, shocking discoveries… Empire hits the ground running and does not stop. This film has fascinated me since childhood and is still one of my favorites today.
The Fellowship of the Ring
The entire trilogy is great, but the first movie is my favorite. I just love watching each character as they are introduced, spending time in the Shire, the terror of dealing with the nine at Weathertop, the splendor of Rivendell, the chilling fate of the Dwarves of Moria and the battle our heroes must face there. I also remember going and seeing each of these movies in theatres with my parents, which likely adds to my fondness of them.
Guardians of the Galaxy
Deciding which film I would pick to represent the MCU was one of the toughest decisions I faced while making this list. Guardians of the Galaxy won out because it has a great mix of humor and adventure, fantastic music, and I’ve always been a fan of morally grey characters working together in space. So this film gelled with me really easily.
