Bound by Faerie Release Day!

It’s release day for Bound by Faerie (Stolen Magic, #1) by WB McKay! Our book is out in the world, flying free! And it’s 99 cents for this weekend only, so you’ll want to grab it at that price while it lasts. ūüėČ

Sophie Morrigan inherited many magical gifts from her death goddess mother. Most of them inflict torture, except the most beautiful. That one kills.

As an agent for the Faerie Affairs Bureau, Sophie loves retrieving dangerous magical objects. The job lets her indulge her covetous nature, and most importantly, it pays the bills. But when a routine job goes south, she finds herself struggling to keep her deadly magic in check while fleeing the wrath of an enraged dragon.

In a desperate search for answers, Sophie stumbles across Owen, a fae nightclub owner who’s as sexy as he is irritating, but just happens to hold the key to her problems.

Sophie wants nothing more than to get her magic under control and return to her normal life, but first she’ll have to face off with all the dangers Faerie can throw at her. Can she fight her way back home? Or will both she and Owen fall prey to a crazed death cult?

Bound by Faerie features a gutsy, kick butt heroine, a broody and dangerous hero, and a ton of magical mayhem.


On sale this weekend only! Get your copy on Amazon US or Amazon UK.


WB McKay is the pen name of married authors Robert and Faith McKay. Their love of stories brought them together, and they’ve been writing by each other’s side ever since. WB McKay marks the beginning of their true collaboration. They sat down and asked themselves what they couldn’t get enough of. The answer was simple. They loved urban fantasy set in a massive universe with room for every creature they could imagine. Throw in a gutsy female lead, a dash of humor, a pinch of romance, and they would eat it up and ask for thirds.

With that recipe in mind, they created a universe based around the vibrant and enchantingly dark lives of the fae. They invite you to explore their world in Bound by Faerie, the first of their magical adventures. Learn more about them, and their books, at McKayManor.com.

I’m excited to start reading the third The Others novel, but I’m holding off because Robert¬†and I have been reading Written In Red (The Others, #1) outloud. I do so much rereading (and reading of books that aren’t out yet) that I’ve gotten behind on my goodreads challenge goals. I seem to be permanently about two books behind. *sigh*

I was so busy rereading with revisions in January and February–where I read 7 books total–that I didn’t give myself time to read. This month, I balanced time a little better and read 14 books in March, and it did not feel like enough. (It never feels like enough.)

A couple of these (Glass Houses and Frost Burned) are rereads. I was rereading Mercy Thompson at the end of 2015, and wanted to reread 7&8 before I dive into the brand new #9. I am always waiting for the new Mercy Thompson, it seems.

Don’t book covers look pretty when they’re all lined up? Books, books, books!

Wonderland is on Sale

Wonderland is on saleMy beautiful husband, Mr. Robert McKay, has put Wonderland on sale! The next Intergalactic Fairy Tales novel (Beauty and the Fleet) is coming out in a few weeks, so this is the perfect time to snatch up Wonderland and uncover all the madness.

The sales ends on Thursday the 19th, so you’ll want to jump at it while you can!

As always, if you’re interested in either of our books, you’ll want to check out the McKay Manor newsletter, where you can get a novella in the Intergalactic Fairy Tales Series (Awakened) and Deadly Divas, #1.5 (Death & Fashion) FREE. The sign up for that is on McKayManor.com.

Now, to the pretty Wonderland details!


Teenage Alice didn’t mean to end up on Wonderland, but the living spaceship she commandeered had other plans, and he was very late.

Abandoned on an unfamiliar planet, Alice’s first day as a space pirate has fallen into madness. Caterpillars? Mad hatters? A Jabberwock? A queen known for chopping off heads? Alice must face all Wonderland can throw at her if she’s to take back possession of The White Rabbit and leave Wonderland in one piece.

Wonderland is an Alice in Wonderland fairy tale retelling full of action, adventure, and unlikely heroes. While the Intergalactic Fairy Tales take place in the same universe, and occasionally have overlapping characters, these books can be read and enjoyed in any order.
