Okay, Missie…Mister…I can see you rolling your eyes. No, I haven’t lost my mind and yes, I am talking about a fairy godmother…MY fairy godmother. You don’t believe it? Okay, let me start at the beginning here.
My fairy godmother is Delta Jane, and she doesn’t look a thing like this picture of yo momma’s fairy godmother. Quite the contrary, Delta Jane is different…quirky…hinky…brash…cranky… funny… rude… brash…tough… smart…creative…brash…manipulative…and…did I mention brash? She don’t mince words and she don’t take nuthin’ off-a no one. My fairy godmother is a one of a kind. She’s got a pair of lips tattoo’d on her butt and she’s not afraid to use ‘em…er, show ‘em, and she has a tattoo on her shoulder that says, “Bite Me, Cowboy!” Delta is over three hundred years old but doesn’t look a day over sixty (a young sixty). She’s cowgirl to the bone and dresses in Wranglers, cowgirl boots, and hats…and she is always color coordinated. If the hat is red, the clothes are red, the boots are red, and the hair and eyes will match too.
(Remind you of anyone we all know and love? Someone with lots of long, full, curly red hair perhaps? I’m just sayin……)
Delta might be a cowgirl, but don’t try to put her on a horse or in a Volkswagon; this fairy godmother rides an Iron Horse—a Harley. Oh, and in case you were wondering…if the hat is red, the Harley is red too.
I know…you’re still shaking your head and wondering if I’ve gone around the bend. Nope. I have not. Delta is a major character in my next published work which…(YeeHaw!)...is available now on Amazon. Oh yeah…doing the happy dance! Midnight on the Double-B is a short story I wrote to introduce my fairy godmother, Delta Jane, to the world. She will make you laugh. She will make you go “huh?” And those of you who know me will “get” that if I had a fairy godmother, I would most certainly get a hinky one with attitude—one exactly like Delta.
So if you’re tired of the tried and true, sugar ‘n sweet, grey hair and glasses, wand in hand type of fairy godmother, try mine! Try the old broad with the hat and boots, the wild hair, and tattoos who rides in on a Harley with the mangiest dog on the planet, to turn everyone’s world upside down as she tries to help Kylah McCombs and Michael Beasty save their ranches while they fall in love. All ya gotta do is follow this link over to Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Midnight-Double-B-Kayce-Lassiter/dp/1492208310/ref=tmm_pap_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1379132806&sr=8-2 and pick up your copy of Midnight on the Double-B, a short story that is available in both print and Kindle format. In the back of this fun little book, you will also find an excerpt from my next book, Loons of a Feather, which is the first full-length novel in a four book series about the adventures of Delta Jane, FGM extraordinaire. Look for Loons of a Feather to be available later this year at your favorite retailer.
By the way, if you like the cover, I’ll let you in on a little secret…I designed and created it myself. Yeah, baby! Of course, if you don’t like it, I’ll lie and tell you I hired a professional to do it. LOL
If you’re undecided on whether or not you’d be interested in my hinky fairy godmother, be sure to tune into this blog on 9/20 and again on 10/4, when I will be posting excerpts from the story. That’s sure to make up your mind.
Oh…and I almost forgot…I am giving away two free e-copies of Midnight on the Double-B, so be sure you leave a comment on this blog for a chance to win a free e-book. Honestly, what could be better? Hinky, cranky cowgirl fairy godmother AND free! And all you gotta do is say HI? Did I mention this quirky little story is a new twist on some old fairy tales? Which ones? Hmmm...well, let's just say "fairy godmother" and "Michael Beasty" are both hints. Care to guess?
That’s my story, fun and fantabulous, and I’m stickin’ to it. Hang on tight now ‘cuz we’re gonna go real, real fast!
