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.

Cover Reveal: Halloween Night: Trick or Treat Anthology

Today I’m part of a cover reveal for this Halloween anthology from Hocus Pocus & Co. The anthology is full of authors I know (and many I don’t!) and I’m looking forward to checking it out at the end of the month.

So what’s this anthology all about? Check it out below…

Halloween Night Trick or Treat Anthology

Cover Design by Cara Vescio

Graveyards, spirits, witchcraft, black cats, candy, and haunted houses.
Strange things happen on Halloween. All Hallows Eve is the single night where the veil between the living and the dead is opened. And now spirits, monsters, and candy will collide!
Seventeen authors and illustrators set out on a horrific journey to set the record straight. What really happens on Halloween night? Trick or Treating is not all fun and games. There are more tricks than treats scattered through these pages. Sure, All Hallows eve can be a scream. But sometimes, it’s straight-up murder.
Halloween Night: Trick-or-Treat is a middle grade and young adult horror anthology that falls on Halloween night.
Read if you dare! You’re in for a scare!

Imaginary Karin’s Questions:

Do you have any middle names? Bri

What’s your favourite Disney movie of all time? Beauty and the Beast! It’s my favorite fairy tale. Actually, my husband started writing his Intergalactic Fairy Tales series because I was complaining that I wanted a new retelling to read.

If you could have any pet you want, what would it be and what would you name it? Well, I’d say an elephant, but I don’t know that it would be very nice to the elephant to keep it around as a pet. I just love elephants. I’d love to have a pet dog though, and I’d name it…. Ellie. Probably. I feel like you have to meet a pet before you can name it. I like to name them based on their personality.

What does your living room look like? I don’t have a living room.

Best monsters: werewolves, vampires, or zombies? This question kills me! I love them all. I’ve written werewolves, and I’m in the middle of producing a huge zombie series (Deadly Divas, yeah!), and Buffy the Vampire Slayer is life. I mean, what’s my favorite monster? Yes, I love monsters, I’ll take them all, thank you. Hmph.

Do you enjoy playing (video/computer) games? What types of games do you like the most? I can’t actually play most video games because I have awful vertigo. I used to be able to play for about 30 minutes, then 10, now if I just glimpse the screen I feel messed up. I can play old games though. I love Pac-Man. I can play most modern Mario games as like as it’s just sidescreen, and I love that. When I had a PS2 I could play the original SIMs and went through it way more times than could be considered healthy. I have played Age of Empires and Age of Mythology so much I’ve dreamt about it on several occasions, but sadly, the versions made in the last ten years or so all make me sick.

age of mythology

If you could be a fictional character for one day, who would you be and why? I would always be, or hang out with, Hermione Granger. Magical powers? Hogwarts? YES.

hp yay

Can you tell us about the best birthday you’ve ever had so far? 

I’m not sure how old I was, but one year Robert planned a day. I didn’t know where we were going or what we were up to. We drove to this small town, went out for Mexican food, and hung out at a waterfall. He got me a steampunk style locket, which I LOVED. Sadly, it was lost a little while later when we got in an accident and our car was totaled, but I wore it all the time while I had it. It was a good birthday. :)

Where would you go if you could be instantly teleported anywhere in the world right now?

This is a hard question because there are so many places I would go! I never used to think of myself as a tropical beach person, but lately on Sunday nights I’ve been watching Caribbean Life on HGTV, and I think I would go to Vieques, Puerto Rico. There are the beaches, it looks a little less resorty than a lot of the islands I’ve seen on the show, and there are wild horses. Plus, they have a bioluminescent bay, which they say is the brightest in the world.
