Hello, everyone! Im Lex Chase and Lisa was so kind and let me drop by the Novel Approach today! Im here to talk about my new release Urban Fairy Tale, the final book in the Screw-up Princess and Skillful Huntsman Trilogy.
Urban Fairy Tale brings the epic romantic adventure of dude Princess Taylor Hatfield and jackass Huntsman Corentin Deveraux to close. The two have been through a lot together as they fought for the relationship as well as saving Enchants from threats from annihilation.
First things first, I hope you enjoy the exclusive artwork I created for the Novel Approach featuring Taylor and Corentin being adorable dorks. Ill have a stack of these printed for GRL 2016 at the Novel Approach table as well as my Author Lounge sessions! Come by to snag one!
Well. Theres a story here.
I have given the Cliff Notes of the story to Divine Magazine, but here goes.
A friend and I were watching The Bacheloryeah. I know and there was a darling contestant named Emily. My friend and I got to gabbing on how shes a prim and proper southern princess with favorite phrases like I declare! and Well, bless your heart!
So we giggled about the idea of southern princess, but make the princess a guy. And then the princesss life should be complete mess. No aspirations. Aimless. And completely unlucky in love.
Taylor Hatfield was born. Taylors was named after Elizabeth Taylor due to a misquoted fact that she was in Gone with the Wind, which featured Atlanta, Georgia. His eyes are pink, because hers are purple.
But! He needed a love interest! Someone to finally tame the wild child. The firm hand! Ooh lala!
Enter Corentin Deveraux. My favorite of all my alpha males. A huntsman at the end of his rope and whose life is likewise a complete disaster.
He slovenly because hes had no reason to keep things tidy. He is a nasty truck because they cant afford a new one. Apparently his snark is hella charming.
Like all fairy tales, there needed to be a fairy godfather. But a total reject too. So along came Ringo. In my head he looks like an older Jeff Bridges in the Big Lebowski only with proportions of housecat. He was also supposed to cuss like a sailor, smoke, and read pixie Playboys.
But then there need to be a quest! The heros journey has seven trials. And a fairy tale has three acts. What better modern quest than a road trip? An Americana themed road trip to boot!
I had a fantastic time asking people about the stupidest tourist destinations the locals would be caught dead at. I had amazing answers. But even funnier, I now love, love, love roadside Americana. The sillier, the tackier, the more positively hideous the more I love it.
GRL 2016 is in Kansas City, Missouri this year and the Worlds Largest Ball of Twine is a three hour drive away. I cannot tell you how much I want to go see it. Sadly, I have been vetoed. Someday!
At the end of everything, in this wacky journey, it would have never happened if it wasnt for The Bachelor. And the fateful day Miss Emily, got out of the limo.
So, Miss Emily? Thank you.

Blurb: Modern day fairy-tale princess, Taylor Hatfield, has problems. One, hes a guy. Two, hes an insomniac Sleeping Beauty. Three, his practically perfect brother, Atticus Hatfield, this generations Snow White, has been irrevocably corrupted by the Witchking. The Library, a clandestine organization, seeks to write The End on Atticus, and Taylor faces the impossible when his own parents endorse his brothers demise. With his true love, the huntsman Corentin Devereaux at his side, they once again set out to find Atticus, but Atticus wont go down without a fight.
The quest ends how it began. But instead of the quirky, corkscrewing Americana road trip, Taylor and Corentin must contend with the dangers of the urban jungle. With an unexpected ally at their side, theyre forced to question all they knew about the legacy of Snow White.
As the world of the Enchants and the mundane hang in the balance, Taylor knows what he must do. Go pick an apple.
