A deadly disease has spread through the Blooming Courts of Tuatha.
The louloudi are meant to flourish for a thousand years before they return to the Earth. Death has been a distant foe for so long, no one spares it any thought. Until now. As sickness sweeps through the kingdom, with the cure always just out of reach, the courts have never been filled with so many blossoms. Even in death, they breathe life.
Ila Slystina has been raised in the confines of the Orchidasi Kingdom, wanting for nothing, hidden away like some sparkling treasure, but she dreams of so much more. When she’s caught returning from a forbidden trip, her mother, the Queen, punishes her the only way she sees fit.
Ila is sent on her season far earlier than she should be. Now, she’s being paraded through the twelve courts like a prized cow and she wants nothing more than to escape. But along the way, she just might get more than what she bargained for.
After all, the courts aren’t the only things that must bloom . . .
Please give a warm welcome to Michelle Lancaster/Lanefotograf
Tell us a bit about yourself
This question could be answered a million different ways.. I was born, I lived, I’m still here… ummm when I was 10 I poked 4 holes into my earlobe and my mum said don’t come running to me when it hurts.
I guess I’m a sensitive introverted extrovert who grew up loving images and fantasy worlds for escapism and creativity. I always loved rebellion and being naughty and listening to other people tell me about horror stories I was too afraid to watch.
Have you always wanted to become a photographer?
I think so yes. I strayed for a while and became a music teacher but I’ve always come back to art and imagery throughout my life. I gave up in high school because I think I was waiting for the digital era. Being in a darkroom was really only good for one thing in my opinion.
Where do you find inspiration for your work?
I find inspiration within the human I’m working with.. the way we interact and connect.. I see a light in them and want to capture it. I also like to imagine a story line in my head to go with an image. Like I might say.. “ok you’ve been waiting for your lover to come home and she hasn’t arrived and it’s driving you crazy.. show me what that looks like”
What are you working on now?
I’ve been working through recent shoots with Mitchell Wick, Lochie Carey and Tommy Fierce. I’ve also been writing… dun dun dun dahhhh..
Do you have any quirks while working?
I often bash my head into running ceiling fans when I’m standing on a bed taking photographs of a model. I often walk backwards into things and smash my knees on furniture. I’m just waiting for the day I slip off the sides of a bath tub and break my neck. All the injuries are worth it for the right shot.
What are your hopes for the future?
Right now it’s just the ability to shoot again.. this virus is ruining the world and I hope we stamp it out fast with isolation. Stay the fuck home. I’m addicted to photography so this is cold turkey at the moment. And photographing flowers ain’t gonna cut it.
Do you have anything to say to your followers?
I fucking love you. Especially the cheeky authors, I’m endlessly entertained by the things they say to me. I’m in awe of their talent and I’m so grateful to have fallen into this magical sexy world with them.
💀A bad*ss FMC 💀Angels, demons, souls, and f*ckery in the realms 💀The use of a trident as a stabbing weapon 💀New Orleans’ based Voodoo and maybe some Princess and the Frog references 💀A bit of intrigue and mystery 💀Sexy men who think that they know everything
Get ready to open a can of spiritual whoop ass. . .
As a Realm Guardian, I’m one of the few humans that can pierce the In-Between. It’s a tedious job, done mostly behind the scenes. I simply monitor the souls that have not crossed over yet. Ninety-eight percent of them complete their unfinished business; then move along, but it’s the two percent that screws me over.
These are the souls that have no intention of cooperating.
Of finishing their business.
Instead, they are here to wreck shop.
Unfortunately for them, that’s where I come in.
I’m Sassafras Dejais and I’m the last line of defense between these malicious spirits and the human world.
Usually, I make quick work of these dicks souls and then move on with my life.
But lately, that two-percent has been growing. . .
It’s getting harder to keep up on my own; so when a devastatingly handsome man offers me a card to join A.S.S., I consider it.
It sounds like the In-Between needs a hero.
Someone badass and full of sass.
Ironically, Sass is my nickname.
And Badass is my middle name.

Shadow Isle Reformatory where the good, the bad, and the worst are sent to be fixed. What no one tells you, is the teachers don’t give two shits, and its more of a prison than an actual reformatory. The only thing we learn here, is how to survive.
Being born of winter and ice, survival should have been no issue for me. There was one catch, I had no clue how to control it. I was a constant disappointment to my family, one they feared instead of loved. It didn’t help that my sister had it out for me and was determined to have me sent away.
My sister got her wish, and I was sent to hell on earth, needing to figure out who to trust, and who was my enemy. I find the most unlikely allies, or at least I thought I had until I learned that betrayal was right in our midst.

My fate is in the darkness, And the war there is real…
Secrets thrive in the Enchanted Forest and one girl must find a way to stop the fae war before it’s too late. With her sister raising titans and gods, the light in her dreams turning out to be a lie, and her men in grave danger…life at the academy has never been this dangerous.
A mirror once spoke of a girl born in hate who could stop a war. But does that girl stand a chance against the power of the fae?

I am married to my high school sweetheart and have two teenagers, a 10th grader and a freshman in college. By day, I teach middle school – scary stuff! – and by night, I spend time with family, write, volunteer at the animal shelter. I love coffee and animals.
Have you always wanted to become an author?
Yes and no. I have thought about, even wrote a story in 3rd grade and went to the Young Author’s Festival. But as I got older, it was all about becoming a teacher.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
One of my best friends in book world asked if I wanted to join a group of author’s to write about villain’s getting their happily ever after. I said yes! So did my usual co-author Kendall Oliver. She had to join me – I begged. LOL.
What are you working on now?
I am working on the edits for a book, Ligon, I started in August of 2018 and finished (the first draft anyway) in June of 2019. My editor and I have been working on it in between the novella I released in December and the novel I just finished for the Mischief Matchmaker Series. I plan to release Ligon in May!
Do you have any quirks while writing?
I don’t know. LOL. I can write almost anywhere. Around people. People talking to me. After every chapter, I have to put it through Grammarly and fix it. Then, I tend to work on the content edits I see for that chapter before moving on. I will bug my friends if a certain part is confusing. I also like to finish a book now before my editor or awesome beta reader Mamaw sees it so she gets the whole picture.
What are your hopes for the future?
Honestly, to be as well known as Harper, Quinn, or Stacy. I’m super proud of their accomplishments! They have done so much in a short time. It’s amazing.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
NEVER GIVE UP! I have wanted to quit so many times. My friends keep me going.
Do you have anything to say to your readers?
Thank you for reading my books. Good, Bad, or (hopefully not) Ugly!
I’ve always been told stories about the real world, but I haven’t seen it for myself. All I have ever known is pain.
They tell me I have been blind since birth.
When I make my escape, I think freedom is finally within my grasp…
Until I’m captured by the paranormal police for a murder I didn’t commit. Apparently, I have powers—powers I have always suspected myself of having.
Normal people can’t see through other people’s eyes, right?
Thrust into Nightmare Penitentiary, I meet a group of hard, alpha, psychotic inmates who believe I’m the answer to all their prayers. Me? I’m just trying to survive and figure out what it means to live. My new home isn’t just a prison, but a labyrinth with horrors around every corner.
But what if the cost of my life is my freedom? Am I willing to trade one cage for another?
Welcome to Nightmare Penitentiary where you come in handcuffs and leave in a body bag.

This book contains strong language, sexual situations, and a reverse harem romance.
This is a 130,000 words stand-alone reverse harem romance and a part of the shared Paranormal Prison world.
