Hello Astra!

There are three novels in the Accidental Turn series ("The Untold Tale", "The Forgotten Tale", and "The Silenced Tale"). There is also a fourth book ("The Accidental Collection") which contains three novellas (including the two previously independently published "Ghosts" and "Arrivals"), set in the world of the books, four short stories, a comic, and some other bonus content that I can't describe without being too spoilery.

Happy reading!(less)

COVER REVEAL: Worldbuilding Through Culture

This beautiful cover is by Ruthanne Reid, and always, it’s fantastic. It’s taken nearly two years of work, but I have finally completed converting my in-person presentation workshop “Worldbuilding Through Culture” into a workbook! Originally conceived and given as a presentation to help writers break out of their own cultural biases in order to create

Quotes by J.M. Frey  (?)

“Heroes can save the world, but villains can change it.”
J. M. Frey

“But in fanfiction anything was fair game. If we could turn protagonists into vampires, bounty hunters, or elves, we could sure as heck turn them homosexual, bisexual, asexual or any ot he wonderful, beautiful in-betweens. Characters slid all over the rainbow. And through fanfiction I learned about identities like transgendered, genderfluid, and demisexual.”
J.M. Frey, The Secret Loves of Geek Girls

“My first crush was a sarcastic know-it-all Immortal named Methos, a character from Highlander. To this day I am convinced he is my perfect soulmate. And the focus of my sexual awakening. Lots of people cite the boiler room scene from My So-Called Life, Jareth in Labyrinth, Colin Firth in Pride & Prejudice, or any/all members of the Fellowship of the Ring. But mine happened when Methos rolled out of bed in nothing but boxers to defend his life with a Roman short sword. Unf.”

Topics Mentioning This Author

“The worst thing a kid can say about homework is that it is too hard. The worst thing a kid can say about a game is it's too easy.”
Henry Jenkins

“...Fan fiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of owned by the folk.”
Henry Jenkins

“Fandom, after all, is born of a balance between fascination and frustration: if media content didn't fascinate us, there would be no desire to engage with it; but if it didn't frustrate us on some level, there would be no drive to rewrite or remake it.”
Henry Jenkins, Convergence Culture: Where Old and New Media Collide

“The Prince had grown on her, romanced her, in a way, seduced her with his need, and his desire, his pain, his suffering, his desperation for one person, just one to accept him as he chose to be. And maybe it was brainwashing, and maybe it wasn't. But that wasn't reason, really, to add to his misery. Hadn’t they both been abused? Pushed into it? And taking comfort from one another in captivity was all they had, wasn't it?”
Peggy Barnett, Lips Like Ice

Wendy Hi! I just wanted to thank you again for alerting me to the re-release of Sailor Moon. I gave volume 1 to Ivy for Christmas and we have been reading through it every night. :-)
