Six lovers struggling to come up with a plan to stop the fae king, one chance to save their kingdoms.

While Rune and Bane are still recovering from their wounds, Finn is nearly assassinated by his aunt during the meeting with the werewolf king and the succubus queen, prompting Bane’s mum to send them off to one of their lesser-known houses, trying to keep them out of harm’s way. But that choice may not have been as spontaneous as it first seemed, as the cottage is filled with books about some very dangerous topics.

As the six dive into the wealth of information, they start to doubt not only the history they’ve always been taught, but even the circumstances of their prophecy. Before the last war, their ancestors had been together at the last witch queen’s court, working on an elixir with eerily similar properties as the one the fae king uses to stop the dragons from shifting, and then the witch queen went missing.

Their world falls apart more with each piece of information they find, but at the same time, a plan starts to form with this new knowledge, making connections between events only available now they’re looking back.
Then the worst news possible reaches them, the fae soldiers are on the move and they seem determined to win this war once and for all. Are Litha, Phoenix and the princes ready?

This is a collection of the third set of three novellas, Recovery, Strategy, Destiny, and the holiday special short story, Festivity, in the Lughnasadh Elite Academy serial, a reverse harem #WhyChoose story. These novellas may include any of the following elements: steamy scenes, ‘I need tissues NOW’ moments, cries of ‘why, oh, why’ and cliffhangers that make you bite your nails (and curse the author).
This story includes MF, MM and also FF scenes, but everyone is primarily focused on Litha and there are no sexy scenes between the guys and the other girl.

One day of festivities, six lovers trying not to get overwhelmed by everything.

After all the mess that has happened in the last four months, Litha and her five lovers, Bane, Kit, Finn, Rune and Phoenix, are finally able to take things a little slower… Not!

With midwinter being one of the most important celebrations of the year, and Phoenix’ birthday falling on the exact same day, Litha and the others have their hands full between decorating a tree the size of a small house, preparing for a feast for all their family and friends, and keeping their eyes on the three small dragon shifters who have joined them.

That should be easy enough, right?

This is a side story to the Lughnasadh Elite Academy serial, a reverse harem #WhyChoose story. This serial may include any of these elements: steamy scenes, ‘I need tissues NOW’ moments, cries of ‘why, oh, why’ and cliffhangers that make you bite your nails (and curse the author).
This story includes MF, MM and also FF scenes, but everyone is primarily focused on Litha and there are no sexy scenes between the guys and the other girl.

Frameworking, how I write books and serials

I’ve been planning on doing something like this for a while. I actually have a Scrivener file on my computer with two, not one but two, versions of me starting a book about the topic of how I write and plan my stories. I also did a presentation on this topic (of which I’ll link an adapted version in this post later) back in Jan 2017, so I’ve been working on this in one form or another for nearly 3 years.
What is ‘this’ exactly? Frameworking is a method I created that isn’t really planning a story, but is more a way for people who pants (who go in without a plan) to keep their thoughts straight and prevent saggy middles in their story. It’s basically a way to make sure you pace your story well, even when you have no idea what your story is actually going to be about. It’s like a frame that you can hang things on (like when you have Christmas cards or something, or pretty things), in this case, you ‘hang’ your story ideas onto it.

With NaNoWriMo coming up soon, and watching people stress out about their story and story ideas, but also because I had to set up my new story, my next serial (the final Lughnasadh Elite Academy novella is with my beta readers right now), this seemed like a great time to talk about it.
Instead of writing long blog posts about it, or do a whole book or something, I decided to sit down and film myself talking about frameworking. The whole thing ended up being nearly 2.5 hours long. I’m not kidding. But then, people who watch my YT videos know that I can ramble, though these are low on rambling and just high on information. The idea was for it to be two half-hour videos, the first one being about the theory behind frameworking and also about how things like the 3 act structure and a romance beat sheet work (though I keep for some reason call it ‘romance structure’ in the video, not sure why), and the second video would be me applying the theory to my new serial and show what I do and how much I set up when I start a new serial (or any story). They ended up being about 1.5 and 1 hour long, I managed to cut it down to 2 hours and 11 minutes and I’ve split it into 8 parts in total, each with specific topics and goals in them. Which makes it easier to watch them and to find specific information that you would like to revisit later without having to sit through everything again.

One attack on the Academy by the fae king, six lovers having to work together to survive.

When Litha sneaks off campus with Rune and Kit after a very tense first day of classes, it all ends horrifically wrong when the succubus cafe they’re staying at is surrounded by fae soldiers. Not only that, but as they’re breaking free, they spot Litha’s grandma being dragged along by the soldiers and Litha sacrifices herself to save the woman.

That’s just the beginning of some very tense days as Bane and Rune don’t get out of the struggle unharmed, their lives now in grave danger. The fae soldiers were using weapons coated in a venom that slowly eats away at their flesh, and the six now have to work against the clock to find an antidote for it, or risk losing their werewolf and dragon lovers.

Meanwhile, Litha’s parents come out of hiding, bringing with them new information about the prophecy. Information that makes clear that the prophecy has accidentally, or willfully, been misinterpreted for over eighteen years.
Not to mention, a surprise visit from Bane’s uncle, the werewolf king, and Kit’s mother, the succubus queen, like life wasn’t complicated enough already…

This is a collection of the second three novellas in the Lughnasadh Elite Academy serial, a reverse harem #WhyChoose story. These novellas may include any of the following elements: steamy scenes, ‘I need tissues NOW’ moments, cries of ‘why, oh, why’ and cliffhangers that make you bite your nails (and curse the author).

Six prophesied lovers fighting for their survival, one night to pull it all off.

While Rune and Finn are on their way to the fae kingdom to help undo the elixir that prevents dragons from shifting, Litha, Phoenix, Bane, Kit and their guests have to flee the cottage they’ve been staying at. It’s only as they reach the academy that they realise how close to being caught by the fae army they were.

But the campus isn’t much safer, the main group of the fae army is only days away, so they have to do everything they can to try and stop the fae king from getting to the forest on the campus ground. Prevent him from using the ancient magical source for his destructive plans.

This is the biggest battle they’ve had to fight yet, and they can’t afford to lose. But how can a group of teens and some random rebel armies win against a well-trained fae army? And how will they stop the fae king?

This is the ninth and final novella in the Lughnasadh Elite Academy serial, a reverse harem #WhyChoose story. This novella may include any of these elements: steamy scenes, ‘I need tissues NOW’ moments, cries of ‘why, oh, why’ and cliffhangers that make you bite your nails (and curse the author).
This story includes MF, MM and also FF scenes, but everyone is primarily focused on Litha and there are no sexy scenes between the guys and the other girl.

One king threatening war, six prophesied lovers scrambling to come up with a plan to defeat him.

Bane’s parents’ house isn’t the idyllic retreat it looks from the outside, inside its walls it hides many secrets and even more dangerous knowledge for anyone willing to dive into the hundreds of books collected in its living room library, as Litha, Phoenix and the four princes have found out.

The plan was to hide here for a couple of weeks, recover from their injuries and maybe gain some knowledge which would help them survive the coming months and years. Instead, they realised that things are, once again, not as simple as that and it appears that history is about to repeat itself.

When they find out that their ancestors unsuccessfully tried to prevent the last war, they know that they need to do something to tip the scales in their favour this time around. The only problem? They have two weeks to pull it off, and they have no idea where to start.

This is the eighth novella in the Lughnasadh Elite Academy serial, a reverse harem #WhyChoose story. This novella may include any of these elements: steamy scenes, ‘I need tissues NOW’ moments, cries of ‘why, oh, why’ and cliffhangers that make you bite your nails (and curse the author).
This story includes MF, MM and also FF scenes, but everyone is primarily focused on Litha and there are no sexy scenes between the guys and the other girl.

One prince nearly assassinated by his aunt, six lovers doing everything they can to prevent another war.

The meeting with the king of the werewolves and the queen of the succubi ends a little differently than planned when Finn’s aunt, a trained assassin, kills multiple people in the room, before stabbing her nephew…

Even though Litha and Phoenix only just moved in with the princes, they’re on the go again. Bane’s parents have offered them one of their lesser-known houses, so they can hide, and hopefully recover from their wounds before they’re attacked again.

The idea seems great, but the house has many secrets, some of them dangerous and even potentially deadly. And that doesn’t even take into account that they themselves may be the greatest threat to their health…

This is the seventh novella in the Lughnasadh Elite Academy serial, a reverse harem #WhyChoose story. This novella may include any of these elements: steamy scenes, ‘I need tissues NOW’ moments, cries of ‘why, oh, why’ and cliffhangers that make you bite your nails (and curse the author).

One clueless queen-to-be, sent to a magical world she didn’t know existed, five lovers waiting for her prophesied arrival.

Before her vital first cup of coffee in the morning, Litha finds out she’s a witch and is suddenly transported to a magical world she had no idea existed. As if that wasn’t strange enough, it turns out that she’s prophesied to be queen, and her parents only took her to the human world to protect her from those who want to stop the prophecy from happening. The prophecy tells of a queen who will marry the ‘true king’ to unite all four kingdoms under his rule, finally bringing peace for the first time in centuries.

The four princes who could become her king? They’re all hot as hell and make her insides squirm each time she sees them. There’s Bane, the werewolf prince, all broody and with hair sticking up like he just got out of bed. Kit, the incubus prince, whose wicked smile melts anyone’s unmentionables. Rune, the dragon prince, protective and with muscles like he’s a moving mountain. And last, but definitely not least, Finn, the fae prince, quiet but intense, with eyes like a summer forest. And to make things even more complicated, when Litha finally meets her roommate, Phoenix, the only daughter of the highest priestess of the witches, she doesn’t want to do anything but kiss the redhead silly.

The first day at the Academy is a little bumpy, as Litha feels so lost in this new world, but that pales in comparison to finding out her parents had to go into hiding, the documents of the prophecy having been stolen from the Academy just days before and that some of the princes have been keeping secrets which could be their undoing before anything even starts…

This is a collection of the first three novellas in the Lughnasadh Elite Academy serial, a reverse harem #WhyChoose story. These novellas may include any of the following elements: steamy scenes, ‘I need tissues NOW’ moments, cries of ‘why, oh, why’ and cliffhangers that make you bite your nails (and curse the author).
