The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear Launch Party and Jousting Contest

Hear ye! Hear ye! Gentlemen and gentle ladies! Lads and lasses! Come and celebrate the release of Lady M.Pax's newest release and cheer on a noble knight in the jousting tournaments!

The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear


A New Adult Urban Fantasy, The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear is the first book in a new series. And it’s now out! The main character, Hetty, is a twenty-two-year-old, stumbling about in an effort to become a full-fledged adult. She struggles with self-esteem, weight, relationships, and making the transition between college and the real world.



Graduation from community college isn’t the magic elixir Hetty Locklear counts on for becoming an adult. Her parents, who work the Renaissance fair circuit, insist she spend part of the summer with them. Hetty doubts pretending to live in the Middle Ages will help her find her way.

 To make it worse, an entity haunts her at her dead-end job, warning her of a dangerous man she doesn’t know. The ghost leads her to a lover who has a lot of secrets. He pulls her farther into peril and into a strange, hidden world of genetic experimentation.

New Adult Urban Fantasy with a contemporary sci-fi twist. Mature content.



Available as an ebook at Amazon / Amazon UK / Smashwords / iTunes / Kobo

November IWSG

Hey everybody! Today is the first Wednesday of November so it must be that time again! J Since my last IWSG post, which was my first IWSG post, I’ve been getting back into the heart of my writing bit by bit and it’s great! I’ve also been reading a lot more writing articles as well which is kind of great, and at the same time, not so great. I’ve found a lot of great tips and techniques, but the more tricks I learn, the less I focus on moving my manuscript forward to stop and do tons of edits. Editing is a good and necessary thing, but I’ve found I really don’t make any forward progress when I switch out of my actual writing mode. I guess if I were to boil it down to one question I could ask my fellow IWSGers, I guess I would probably ask how do you go about your editing? Do you write out a chapter at a time and edit what you have? Or do you write the entire manuscript and then go back and edit?

If you're interested in joining IWSG, Alex Cavanaugh is the wonderful host and you can find his website here.

Happy writing everyone! ^^ :D
