Can Bunny resist Fairer Than's charms? And when she does, what will Fairer Than do about it? Paranormal romance, fantasy, comedy. LGBT YA. 

ON the very edges of the unknown lies the Twilight World, where the town of Little Salem teems with hot rods, ghouls, and devil girls.

Vampire Dean is her perfect greaser girlfriend, but beyond hot rods and motorcycles lies something more in the Enchanting Forest: faeries. And even among such ancient denizens, they've someone to fear: the notorious heart breaker and home wrecker, the dark faerie, Fairer Than.
 
Fairer Than: gorgeous, red-haired, stronger than a faerie ought to be, and smoldering in more ways than one. Her reputation has Daughters of the Faerie Court flee before her wake lest they fall for her charms.
 
And when Fairer Than comes to Little Salem, she just happens to notice Bunny.

Excerpt:

Beat it, dematerialize!” Bunny incanted, incensed. Nix and Pix disappeared in a puff of sparkling smoke. Two more shrieks sounded over the water.
“Ha!” Bunny said, and snapped her fingers. Sending teasing girls into the lake might be over-kill, but Bunny had learned one thing fast and early while growing up in Little Salem: it was best to show Other-beings that she wasn’t a human to push around. She stepped to return to the campground.
“Lovely trick, from a lovely witch,” a woman said behind her. The rich tone was deep and sultry.
Beat it,” Bunny said, raising her wand. She turned.
Her incantation died on her lips. A tall faerie stood before her, leaning a forearm on a tree. Her thick, red tresses were dotted with tiny white flowers, the locks gathered and held by one gold ring. Her curvaceous body was clad in a deep green kirtle with a brief bodice, loosely laced over her breasts. The kirtle’s straps had fallen from her broad shoulders and hung, ragged. One draped a gold armband circling a bicep. Old-gold medallions and large, sharp teeth made up the faerie’s heavy girdle, and beneath her skirt’s rough hem, her bare toes poked. The faerie stepped away from the tree.
“I’m Fairer Than,” she said.
“I’m…Bunny.” Fairer Than approached, and Bunny could think of nothing else to say. As the faerie neared, the green irises of her heavy-lidded gaze became evident, and her pouty-lipped mouth curled into a smile.
“Charmed,” she said.

An Interview with Elizabeth:

  1. It's almost Halloween! What's your favorite witch movie or novel?: There are so many cool witches! Okay, hands down, Lady Jessica from Herbert’s Dune. The Bene Gesserit are cool; “fear is the mind killer.” Then Kim Novak in Bell, Book, and Candle, Marvel Comics’ Enchantress, Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service, the witches of the Oz books, and the witches of mythology and fairytales like Circe and Snow White’s evil queen. 
  2. What was the inspiration for your witch novella?: Charm School started out as a comic book, and I wanted to write and draw a romantic teen witch who went to soda shops, dressed in pencil skirts, and had a wonderful greaser vampire girlfriend. The inspiration was part Sabrina the Witch from the Archie comics, though more like Betty and Veronica mashed with the movieGrease, starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John.
  3. Tell us about your main character: white witch, dark witch, or something in-between?: Bunny Baker is a good teen witch, and in the tropes tradition, she’s as blonde as Marilyn Monroe and just as sweet and sexy. She makes a great contrast to the demons, devils, monsters, and were creatures who live in Little Salem, her hometown in the Twilight World. And what’s fun inWrecking Faerie is that poor Bunny’s goodness is challenged when faced with the temptation of a drop dead, gorgeous dark faerie, Fairer Than.
  4. Cast your characters. If your novella was made into a movie, who would play your main characters?: Boy, readers kicked that question around ages ago back when Charm School was a comic book. At the time, Drew Barrymore was doing sweet movies and readers wrote in saying she should play Bunny. I’d always thought of Bunny as Marilyn Monroe’s love child, hidden away in a magical world. Fairer Than’s attitudes and body were based off vintage bombshells, like Jane Russell with a young Sherilyn Fenn’s darkness and sexiness mixed in. Dean was John Travolta and Jenny Shimizu.
  5. Do you believe in magic?: Heck yes. As Arthur C Clarke once said, “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." The universe is amazing, and having awe, wonder, and belief in impossible things will reveal mysteries to us.
  6. What else should we know about your novella? Wrecking Faerie is the first in the novelizations of Charm School, the comic books series. The second book, upcoming, is Hot Roddin’ To Hell, and I’m not kidding that the fans have been waiting years for the last comic book story arc to conclude. I never got around to drawing it. That will happen in Hot Roddin’. After that will be a novella featuring Fairer Than, and that one’s close to done: Body Chase. So stay tuned and enjoy!
