CINDERELLA,NECROMANCER is CHIME meets ANNA, DRESSED IN BLOOD and was inspired by a real medieval grimoire of necromancy from 15th-century Germany.
Ellison lost her mother at an early age. But since then, her father has found love again. He’s happy and doesn’t quite notice that Ellison does not get along with his new wife or her mean daughters.
When Ellison discovers a necromantic tome while traveling the secret passages of her father’s mansion, she wonders if it could be the key to her freedom.
Until then, she must master her dark new power, even as her stepmother makes her a servant in her own home. And when her younger brother falls incurably ill, Ellison will do anything to ease his pain, including falling prey to her stepmother and stepsisters’ every whim and fancy.
Stumbling into a chance meeting of Prince William during a secret visit to her mother’s grave feels like a trick of fate when her stepmother refuses to allow Ellison to attend a palace festival.
But what if Ellison could see the kind and handsome prince once more? What if she could attend the festival? What if she could have everything she ever wanted and deserved by conjuring spirits to take revenge on her cruel stepmother?
As Ellison’s power grows, she loses control over the evil spirits meant to do her bidding. And as they begin to exert their own power over Ellison, she will have to decide whether it is she or her stepmother who is the true monster.
About F.M. Boughan:
F.M. Boughan is a bibliophile, a writer, and an unabashed parrot enthusiast. She can often be found writing in local coffee shops, namely because it’s hard to concentrate with a cat lying on the keyboard and a small, colorful parrot screaming into her ear. Her work is somewhat dark, somewhat violent, somewhat hopeful, and always contains a hint of magic.
You can follow Faith on Twitter (@FaithBoughan) for plenty of flailing about food (she likes to cook!), TV shows (she watches too many), and world dance (did you know she’s been performing & instructing in Bollywood-style dance for over 8 years?).
Or catch her on Facebook where she just might post pictures of her adorable cat & bird… among other things.
F.M. Boughan is represented by Bill Contardi of Brandt & Hochman.
SPEND THE DAY WITH FAITH!
What is a typical writing day like for you?
Confession time: I was going to write a post about what’s on my desk. But then I couldn’t actually find my desk, probably because it’s buried under a precarious pile of books and papers and dirty coffee mugs and bookstagram props. So, let’s talk about a typical writing day instead! Yeah!
Here we go!
7:30am – My alarm starts blaring. I hit “snooze” approximately 14 times, at which point I start sleeping through the alarm, probably because I was up until 2am the night before either playing Guild Wars 2 or falling down a rabbit hole of watching K-Pop dance practice videos on YouTube. I make solid life choices, people.
8:15am – My husband brings coffee into the bedroom, wafting its enticing scent in my general direction. I stumble out of bed and follow the coffee into the office, where I drink it as fast as possible until the blurry words on my computer screen finally come into focus. Then I check email, social, and read news until I’m sad/angry/discouraged and have just enough energy left to consider going downstairs to work out.
8:30am – Realize I’m too tired to work out and decide to do it later. (PS: I won’t.)
9:30am – Wake up the bird, eat breakfast, consider putting on real pants.
10:00am – Make tea. Sit down at the laptop (sometimes at “my desk” but as we have already established, it’s currently MIA). Check social again and chide myself for procrastinating. Wonder if it’s too early to eat lunch. Check YouTube subscriptions for anything new. (PS: There isn’t. I watched it all the night before.)
10:30am – More emails! Blog posts, promotional work, simpler edits, reading what I wrote the day before. At some point in here I’ll probably put on real clothes and play with makeup for a bit, usually as a break between harder tasks.
12:30pm – Lunch! Thank goodness.
1:30pm – It’s time to head to the coffee shop! I go to wherever has available parking that day, or base my decision on the amount of social interaction I feel I can endure thanks to my best bud, Anxiety. Do I want the place where the baristas know me? Or do I want the place where the nice old man who seems to spend a lot of time there will inevitably want to chat for twenty minutes? Or do I want to work at the place with very little table space but where nobody will say boo to me even if I fall off their wobbly, “refurbished” stools and crack my head open on the floor? Decision, decisions.
3:00pm – Bemoan that I’m too far from my word count goal for the day and that I’ll never make it and will probably have to work until midnight to catch up. I don’t want to do that. I have YouTube videos to watch and sweet loot to collect from boss fights.
4:00pm – Have another coffee and a snack, because I’m getting hungry but it’s too early for dinner and I don’t want to eat until I’m done for the day.
6:00pm – Get startled out of my writing-induced stupor as the coffee shop (or wherever I am) begins to buzz with the noise of the early evening crowd. Realize that I’ve been writing steadily for the past two hours and am now, much to my shock, past my word count goal. And also that my stomach is eating itself.
7:00pm – Go home, eat dinner. Attempt to read, end up answering emails that came in during the afternoon. Consider writing some more, but realize that it’s a bad idea. Instead, I plan to go to bed nice and early so I can get started on my daily word count before lunchtime. Then I could end work at a reasonable hour and possibly see a movie or actually get some reading done, maybe even toss in a load of laundry instead of digging in the back of my closet for clean clothes like a squirrel desperately searching for the nut she’s sure she buried there last year.
10:00pm – Mentally plan to get ready for bed in an hour.
1:00am – Realize that planning is useless and that maybe I shouldn’t try to fix what’s broken. After all, I made my word count today, didn’t I? So I definitely deserve to watch another YouTube video… just one more… then I’ll go to bed… 😉
