My Interview With Susan Gaye on her Faery Tale Mountain Blog

 Go To Susan Gay's Faery Tale Mountain's Blog: HERE

Patricia, what inspired your book,

Velvet Ball & The Broken Fairy

I was inspired to write Velvet Ball and The Broken Fairy after I bought a strange-looking fairy doll in a quaint Opportunity Shop near where I live. I tried to think of a wish that a child would make and then I thought of how hard it would be for a little girl at school if she was bald, either from alopecia or from cancer. So when I began writing this story, Velvet and Roseberry just evolved. I’m sure they took over this story because they continuously fought over who would be the MC. When Velvet won, Roseberry decided she would get even by stealing the scenes and refusing to do any magic. Instead, she chose to let Velvet suffer. So the story took many twists and turns along the way, and even I had no idea how it would end. LOL I was shocked as much as the readers.

I have written the second story in this series, but it needs a few edits before I publish it. It’s called: Velvet Ball (Book Two) Velvet & Roseberry Battle Mean Goblins


Velvet Ball can’t believe that the children at her new school call her a pixie just because she’s bald. She hates home time and having to stand outside the school to wait for the bus, but when Rory O’Leary rips her hat off and calls her baldy in front of the whole class, she cringes with embarrassment. When all the other students join in and tease her, she stamps on Rory’s foot, then takes off running into the forest.

While picking wildflowers, Velvet stumbles upon a fairy caught in the bow of a tree. The fairy promises to grant her a wish if she saves her and proclaims to be Roseberry — Fairy of Crabtree Forest. Although Velvet doesn’t believe in magic, she rescues the weird little sprite. But just like she expected, her wish of getting her hair back doesn’t work. Unable to explain why she has no magic, Roseberry attempts to fly away, but instead, she crashes to the ground with a thump. Feeling sorry for the helpless little sprite, Velvet takes her home and hides her in her bedroom, but Roseberry isn’t at all endearing. She’s rude, demanding, bad-mannered, and spoilt. And she acts like a princess, expecting to be waited on day and night.

Velvet figures Roseberry doesn’t know how to use her powers because she didn’t pay attention in Magic School, but when she tries to help her, the bratty little sprite isn’t interested in learning anything. All Roseberry wants to do is dance around the bedroom and dress in Barbie clothes, but when she begins throwing food around the bedroom, Velvet’s had enough. She threatens to take Roseberry back into the woods and leave her there. Before she has a chance, Roseberry is kidnapped by Rory’s and his gang of bullies. Now velvet has to find a way to save her before the boys discover Roseberry is real, and not just a talking fairy doll.

Velvet Ball & The Broken Fairy have a new Book Cover

So sorry I haven't posted in a while, but that's been due to my ill health.

Today, I want to share my new book cover for Velvet Ball and The Broken Fairy. 

The new cover was designed by Patti Roberts at Paradox Book Cover Designs and Formatting.
Though I liked the older cover, I always wanted a picture of Velvet and Roseberry on the front, then readers could see straight off what the story is about.

Nine-year-old Velvet has alopecia due to a long illness, and though she doesn't mind being bald, she minds getting bullied by Rodney O'Leary and his gang. When her classmates call her a pixie and steal her headband, she runs off into the forest to escape their taunts.  Enjoying the peace in the woods and picking pink wildflowers, she comes across a tiny fairy stuck in the bow of a tree. The fairy promises to grant her a wish if she saves her, but when Velvet rescues her, she finds out that the fairy can't even fly, and she has no magic powers at all.

Roseberry's not capable of granting one little wish because she didn't listen in Magic School. All she wants to do is hide away in Velvet's bedroom, dance around in Barbie clothes, and eat nice food. When the fairy becomes too rude and demanding, Velvet threatens to dump her back in the forest. But before she has a chance, Roseberry is kidnapped by Rodney O'Leary and his gang. Fearing for her tiny friend's life, Velvet knows she has to rescue her. And she'd better get there fast before the bullies kick her around like a football. After all, they think Roseberry is just a doll and they'll do anything to upset Velvet.

 The new version eBook is available on Amazon Here And on Smashwords: Here


The paperback version will be available on Amazon in a week or two, but if anyone wants to buy it now, it's available now with CreateSpace: Here 

 You can find Velvet and Roseberry on FaceBook: Here 

 Soon there will be a chance to win free eBooks and  paperbacks. Watch this blog for updates. I promise not to be away so long next time.

Ominous Love Book Cover

Ominous Love is available on Amazon for $0.99 this week, so pop in a grab a copy before the price goes back up Go to this link: Here

The book cover, poster, and banner were all created by Patti Roberts. She did a wonderful job of putting the right scene together for me. First I had seen the angel on her website and knew that I had to have him for my character. Then Patti asked me what scene I wanted and offered suggestions. We worked together picking out the right pictures for my characters, then she added the thunderstorm just like the scene I was looking for. Though I probably gave her a hard time until I chose the right picture for my main character, Eloise. I had to get her right.

You can see the banner at the top of my blog and the poster below. Patti has also made the cover for my paperback that will be out shortly.

The first person to make a comment on this post will receive a free eBook copy of Ominous Love.
