When nature rules your head, can you follow your heart?
"Mimosa Black" is my third release with Eternal Press and I'm giving away an e-copy to a commenter today.
I can't really remember what inspired me to write "Mimosa Black", but I think it had something to do with the somewhat unfair reputation my hometown has.
It's set in Rockingham WA, which has the dubious honour of being called "Bogan-ville" West Australia (for those of you who don't know what a bogan is, this is the wiki entry to explain). As there is high number of 'cashed up bogans' in this area, I wondered how I could translate this into a paranormal creature... Enter the Harpy - uncouth, loud and opinionated - a perfect addition to my fictional world. In "Mimosa Black", Rockingham is the home to the largest flock of Harpies in the Southern hemisphere and my character, Mimosa, is one of them.
I had a blast writing this novella, and for anyone local, you'll probably get a smile from some of the scenes.
Here's the blurb;
Unfortunately for Mimosa Black, this is not the case. Combining her failed marriage, inability to fly, and unrequited crush on her childhood friend, Bo Elliot – Mimosa’s existence is less than idyllic.
Things however, are rarely as they seem. Bo has a secret and when Mimosa falters, his secret is revealed. Yet in their darkest moments, where bad magic lurks, love is never far away. Mimosa and Bo do have a chance at happiness, if they're selfless enough to find it...
