                          I Missed Y'all !!!!!

 As quite a few of you know, for the past year I have been recovering from a major car accident, and during those last few months, when I was trying to regain my old self, I discovered a wonderful, WONDERFUL new sexy series. It takes some old classic fairy tales and gives them a modern, sexy spin. In this world, the heroines are complete bad asses and the heroes are about as far from Disney's Prince Charming as the spectrum allows. My excitement and enjoyment of finding this series gave me the push I needed to venture back into my beloved blogosphere. So excuse me if I have a tendency to gush once in awhile. 

In order to celebrate my return and to help spread the word about my discovery, R,S & TB is spotlighting this series and each week of January will post about each one of these very special adult fairy tales. In addition, Kerrianne Coombes and myself are having an AWESOME month long giveaway. One winner will recieve a $25 Amazon GC plus 2 signed copies of her Demon Tales series, Snow White, the Demon Huntress and Rapunzel. Second place will win either a print or ecopy of Beauty and the Beast. Just fill out the rafflecopter and good luck as you immerse yourself into Kerrianne's magical world. So now without further ado, I hand the blog over to the esteemed lady herself, may I present Kerrianne Coombes.

Hi Guys!
I am so happy to be invited here to talk about my Demon Tales. Sebella has kindly given me some floor space and I intend to fill it up with some sexy, delicious demon hotness!

The Demon Tales started a good few years ago when I was watching Beauty and the Beast, the Disney version, with my little girl who was then just a toddler. I had this idea of ‘Yah know, this story could work really nicely if it were darker, grittier and… more Cough sexeh. 

I am a massive fan of fairy tales but I do tend to roll my eyes at the way the women are portrayed as simpering, wimpy and downright feeble. I think, and I could be wrong, but I think, men find strong women a bit of a turn on. That doesn’t mean to say women should wear ball caps and act like a man if she doesn’t want to. Women can kick serious ass, take no crap and still be the most lady like--most female--person in a room.

In my life the BEST role models have been women and I think a real relationship should be a partnership—a situation where you are no longer alone to shoulder life…(I’m a hopeless romantic)

So, here was born the demon Tales… Richly sexy stories of love passion and STRONG WOMEN getting together with equally STRONG MEN.

Though Snow White The Demon Huntress is by far the hardest, most badass women of all in my stories, all of my females either learn to be strong, like Chloe in Rapunzel, or they let their inner bad-ass loose, like Selma in Sleeping Beauty and the Damned Demon.

So, here starts the beginning of my month of fun. I am giving away two paper back copies of my demon Tales (Snow White The Demon Huntress and Rapunzel)

So, please enjoy my posts and leave a comment to be in with a chance at winning xx

Kerrianne Coombes is the youngest of three siblings. Born in England in 19 *Cough cough*
Books became very important to Kerrianne at a very early age. Having a book obsessed mum, made finding and reading all the greats, like Emma and Pride and Prejudice–and, of course, Anne of Green Gables–natural for her to read. The entire idea of being whipped into a new world, a new life was greatly appealing to a little girl who had far too much imagination to know what to do with.
Being the kid with braces, frizzy hair and awkward laugh, Kerrianne found she could be who she wanted to be as soon as she picked up a book.
After leaving school, Kerrianne was a groom working at an event/ hunt stables (Horses) Later, the lure of working in a dry, warm office yanked her away from the farms and the open air. But she never found a job that suited her as well as being a groom.
Though writing was something Kerrianne only started seriously after she had her babies, Kerrianne has always written little stories and little poems–these were written more as a therapy when she needed to clear her mind, and usually, they were written at the office when she was supposed to be doing something mundane. 
“Writing was my procrastination when I worked in an office.”
But when her youngest went to school, Kerrianne found that the stories were busting to get out, and thats when she decided to dedicate more time to what was then, her hobby.
Fast forward four years, and Kerrianne is usually found with a coffee in hand, her eyes glued to a computer screen, writing, editing or plotting.
Happy as a pig in poop.
