Watch out for our latest novel, Nicole Thompson's Unlikely Places! Passion. Deceit. Fairy Princesses. This book is a wild ride between worlds, an ex-princess' escape to the humans, and just about enough crazy for any reader. Along the way you will find wacky shenanigans, logic discrepancies, and obscure references captained by Satrina's quartet of crazy Zoe, Lucas, Maeve, and Jake. Unlikely Places is not to be missed.
Satrina didn't exactly know how far she'd have to get to escape her past, but she figured LA would be far enough. If only she had been right...
An encounter with the dark and mysterious Deirdre, sent to spy on her by an unknown employer, sends her and her new human life reeling. Soon enough the two find themselves on a magical adventure they'll never forget, culminating in a violent face-off between their two worlds--but where will they find their own alliances lie in the end?

I love Unlikely Places. You probably won't take that seriously, though--I am just another pretentious novelist type, gazing intently at a keyboard in a Starbucks somewhere.
Now I have published three books, written far too many to count. Along the metaphorical shelf in the basement lie plenty of novels, rusty and dusty with clichéd sub-plots and every once in a while a doozy of a plot twist. What makes Unlikely Places stand out from those shelved away stories?
For one, I finished it. Working on this story for months now, from back in June when I would sit and listen to a cast-mate pester me about my plot, my characters, and so on (he named about half of them in the end, and we got quite the stellar mini-movie out of it too. Though you'll hopefully never be seeing that.), to halfway through the writing where plotting started to feel like sitting down with the characters and talking it through with them. What? I never made any claims to my sanity. I never finished that sentence, either. Working on this story for months now, I've gotten horrendously attached to it. I can't promise I won't snarl at you if you pass it off (though I'll try to take it like a sane and normal big girl), but I can promise you that I could never let this story out there if I hadn't pulled and pinched it to exactly what I wanted it to be. Whether or not that involved eight frenzied spell-checks a week before sending it out.
Also, the fairy princesses part didn't hurt in setting it apart from previous gore.
So here you go, have a bit of my mind if you dare. Please go ahead and dare.
Nicole Thompson is happy to be able to tell people that she has now written not one, not two, but three novels. And she always makes sure to say it that way, though not always in the third person. She also claims that someday she may actually settle with one genre. After she's passed through another three or four--historical? Science fiction? Nobody knows. Pastimes include musical theater, cheerleading, and refining her master plan to take over the world. "Wait," she interrupts. "Did you just quote me on that?" [Expletive]
