CEA: Beyond The Hallowed coming soon!

So excited for my Two Prince twisted fairy tale to come out this October!!!

Just gave in the final submission of it today, and this is certainly my best work to date!

With that in mind, here is another little spoiler for you all 🙂

#Steamy

Then, he reached across the table and kissed me. Slowly, tenderly, so lovingly. I’d never been touched that way before. He pulled away a moment, stroked my face. Testing out if he should continue. After a moment, our lips found each others again. Just as tenderly, nearly dragging a moan from my needy lips. This wasn’t how I had planned to spend my last evening, yet now I couldn’t think of a single other way to.

“I have a room.” I stumbled out between kisses.

He linked his fingers with mine. “Shall we go to it?” he asked gently.

“Yes.” I moaned against his lips.

“So, Princesses aren’t your thing?” he asked.

I shook my head, “Never have been.”

“And men?”

“Well, it’s hard to imagine a Prince coming to rescue another Prince, but a boy can dream.” I muttered.

“Then, tonight. Let me be your Prince.” he offered.

Another shiver as his hand stroked down my back. “Come to bed!” I hissed, need overcoming any part of me who wanted to resist.

He chuckled, “Needy my love.” Yet, he did finally take me to my room. And what happened after that?

A Prince never tells these things, he is too honourable. Even if another Prince is involved.

 

Shoutout to LGBTQ* writers, WE NEED YOU!!!

So, as you know. I am working with Shaun of CEA Publishing doing various short story collections. Currently working on Within The Pride, the LGBTQ* collection. Which given the current climate, I think we can all agree, is an important thing to be promoting.

I am working on a very angsty piece, a deep, dark, ‘it gets better’ storyline. Promoting suicide and mental health awareness in The Community, as something our youth can use as a means of support during difficult times. I have posted some snippets already, more will be coming soon.

However, we find ourselves in need of a few more writers to fill the collection. The deadline is going to be extended from the 31st August current deadline. If anyone is interested in this, or any of the collections. Please, contact me, or Shaun via CEA or Pulse Entertainment pages.

Much Love

Sarah

Of Twisted Fairy Tales and a two Prince love story.

As always, working my ass off on my deadlines for the amazing CEA Publishing. This time:

Beyond the Hallowed Volume 1 (Halloween) Due out on Halloween.

 

Well, I have shared you a little of this story before. I am glad to say it is now, COMPLETE and with my beta readers. Already receiving rave reviews.

Including:

It’s different, it’s unusual, it’s quirky and it’s absolutely and completely brilliant! – from Naomi

Has been likened to the Discworld series and very likely to spawn off a short story collection of twisted fairy tales 2018/2019 depending on commitments.

The idea is that villains are not always what they seem. That evil is only evil from a  certain point of view.

“Prince Harold at yours.” I also bowed my head, “You are not what I expected of an evil prince.”

“Perhaps evil is in the eye of the beholder. A cat and a bird both make good pets to man. However, to a bird, a cat is evil. To a cat, perhaps a dog is evil. Yet to humans, they are all companions to be tamed.Do you understand?” he asked.

 

Oh yes, did I say that this features one of the first M/M two Prince love story in fairy tales? This has a happy ever after that will thrill the LGBT+ community. For those of you who are unsure at the pairing, there are no in depth sex scenes. Just a sweet, touching love story.

I really can’t wait to show it to you all come Halloween 🙂

EXCITED!!!!!!!

Sarah

Of Contracts and new commitments

Well, a mixed bag to report today.

 

Firstly, the charity collection I was due to be in Nov 2017. Will not longer be going forward with my assistance. Creative differences made it impossible to do so, I will not sacrifice my craft for anyone. However, from talking to CEA. I am looking at putting out my OWN LGBTQ charity book, Nov/Dec this year if I get time. If not, it will hit early Jan.  Charity to be confirmed as yet. Thankfully neither piece I created for the lost collection will be wasted, as CEA has accepted both with only minor changes 🙂

 

Secondly. CEA has come to me with a wonderful opportunity.  Shaun has been accepted for a bid at the Guinness Book of Records, for the largest short story collection. He has asked me to be a part of this, which I am super excited for! He needs 100 writers and 1000 sales to get in the book!!! Submissions must be 3/8k and completely original to this collection. AKA, no republishing elsewhere. They can be in any genre, deadline end of August.

If you want to help out, the details will be constantly updating on Pulse and CEA websites. The starter information can be found on the link below.

HERE WE GO!!!! 🙂

 

 

Shoutout to all the LGBTQ Community members in the entertainment world.

As most of you should know by now, I am gay. Well technically bisexual, but I prefer the term gay or ‘in the community’. I’ve only been out five years, and only the last 18 months or so started to get really comfortable with being who I really am. After a lot of help from a very close person to me, called Adam.

When I first came out, we were moving towards a better place. Marriage was legal in all 50 states. People were starting to come around to the idea that we were welcome and acceptable. Yes, there were still some hate crimes. Yet it felt like we were turning the corner on hate. To a place where we could finally stop being ‘Outlaws of Love’ in the words of the great Mr Lambert.

Until we lost a great battle to hate when a certain person was elected to be a world leader late last year. Rights started to be reversed, hate crimes doubled if not more. Trans people being killed at an alarming rate. Even in my little sleepy English town, I found myself called the ‘f’ word for the very first time for daring to go out the house in a pride shirt. I talk to my friends in America, and I hear about so many attacks. So many people being treated like they are nothing. Its like WW2 all over again.

It’s time we stood together and did something about it.

Some of you know, I also own a small inde entertainment site:

thepulseentertainment.co.uk

Through it, I want to bring this issues to light. I want actors, singers, writers, authors, bands, directors, game makers. I don’t mind, as long as you are in ‘The Community’. I want to hear how this is affecting you personally. Your career. Your life. Your families. Then I will publish it in a series of articles. I don’t mind if you want to do this anon, I could understand if you feel it would put you in more danger to speak out under your own name. We can find you a pen name.

Come find me, here, on my twitter (@wickedwitchgal), my facebook (sarah beth james) or via pulse social networks. I don’t mind. Come, tell me your stories. Let’s start to make a difference.

You are important.

You are valid.

You do matter.

I love you all!

Sarah

CEA: Beyond the Hallowed Spoilers

So, along with the other collections, I will be writing for this year.

Welcome to the Halloween special!! And ya all know how much I loves me my Halloween 🙂

As usual, I will be writing from a different POV. Something to make people really think about how they view fairy tales, villian’s and Hero’s. It has already been likened to the Discworld series.

It will be titled: Unhappily Ever After A Villain’s Tale.

Spoilers below:

Seriously?

Again?

I just had that door fixed and some two bit hero breaks in and tries to attack me. Raids all my supplies and runs off. Crying how hard done by he is. Damn heros and their happily ever after bullshit and their endless leggy blonde bimbos that they save. What self respecting woman needs rescuing every ten seconds?

Girl, get off your ass and save yourself. Why on earth wait around for a man to validate your existence? Then you only end up moping around while he goes to war. Thinking of babies and singing happy little silly songs to a bunch of random wild life that couldn’t care less of your vocals.

Really?

Do you have no ambition at all in your life? Love, babies, happily ever after and making tapestries while Nanny and the Fairy Godmother raise your 18 sprogs? Eww, I couldn’t imagine anything worse than that.

I really should start charging Heros for my front door repairs. It is getting annoying now. Or I might just feed the next prince to my dragon. See how they feel about breaking and entering then! Oh, but of course THEN I am the evil wicked witch because I dared to defend myself! And then it is with the pitchforks and the burning. Like I’m the daughter of Lucifer or something.

Well, technically, he is my father, but that is besides the point. All I’m doing is defending myself, but who’s side do they take? The Hero’s of course! There was this sweet old lady, kind dear. She lived up at number 47. Baked for the children all day every day, missing her grandchildren who died in the troll war. Gingerbread, cakes, cookies. The two ungrateful little brats tried to cook her in her own oven!

What is this world coming to when you can’t even do a good deed without almost ending up burnt alive? The neighbourhood has gone right down since they woke that girl who kept snoring. Dreadful racket she used to make every day. You could hear her right in my back yard, a good five miles from that there castle. Proper ruined my afternoon cup of newt tea. Couldn’t focus on anything.

I swear if I get my door smashed in one more time this week, I will pack up my hovel and move somewhere that Hero’s can’t find me! About time an old woman got some peace and quiet.

There, that’s it. All mended now. That is a good piece of spell casting, even if I say so myself. That should keep them out. Now, time for some nettle cake and a foot bath I think. It has been a long day.

BANG.

BANG.

BANG.

“Open up you evil old hag, I know you took that child right from her bed last night. Give her back or I will burn you alive in this stinking hovel!”

Here we go again!

Another thing to be blamed for. Doesn’t matter that the wood elves spirited the girl away at early dawn. Oh no, it has to be the wicked witch, of course. Stinking hovel? Well, maybe I could catch up on my cleaning if I wasn’t always chasing away intruders and mending my blasted door. Young people today!
