I'm very pleased to announce that the third book in my Fayborn trilogy has been published at last! If you are one of those whose been waiting eagerly and patiently to find out what happens, wait no more! Head on over to your favorite online bookseller and search for "Fayborn", "J. Aleksandr Wootton", or "A First or Final Mischief" and you should find it right away.

If you're new to Fayborn, here's a quick introduction to the series:

Her Unwelcome Inheritance (2nd edition cover) by MrWootton
Her Unwelcome Inheritance (Fayborn #1)

Sometimes fairies believe in you… and it’s not always pretty.

When Oberon needs to sacrifice her family to restore his shattered kingdom, Petra will fight for their freedom and sanity as the world she knows and the people she trusts are transformed by supernatural invasion.

Petra is supposed to be starting college, but these fairies are real and they need her help. There’s just one catch: they want her to become a desperate tyrant’s sworn servant. Forever.

Read the DD-nominated excerpt: Jadis (excerpt)

The Eighth Square by MrWootton
The Eighth Square (Fayborn #2)

They want her alive… and they’ll kill to get her.

Dodging the supernatural is making Petra’s freshman year very difficult. Emissaries from the imprisoned Faerie Queen are looking for her. The Militia watch her everywhere she goes. Oberon’s servants keep trying to kidnap her.

Petra is certain she doesn’t have special powers. She didn’t even know about the thousands of Fayborn refugees hiding on earth until last summer. She’s still not sure she believes any of it: her aunt, her godfather, and her roommate do seem a bit crazy.

Friends and family are trying hard to keep her safe, but the Fayborn seeking her help are getting desperate…

Read the DD-nominated excerpt: Luring the Nightmare (excerpt)

A First or Final Mischief by MrWootton
A First or Final Mischief (Fayborn #3)

Her aunt's been abducted.
Her mother is missing.
Her enemy is waiting.

And the person she counted on for help is dead.

Too late to free the Faerie Queen, Petra Godfellow and her allies face a terrible choice: Either Petra surrenders and swears to serve James Oberon, or he will torture her Aunt Penny.

If she agrees to James's demands, the Faerie kingdom will be restored... with James on its throne, and Petra condemned to eternal servitude. Any alternative abandons Penny to torture and her mother to an unknown fate.

Unless, of course, the Cat chooses to intervene...

I hope that whets your reading appetite! Fayborn has been called "Like a modern Alice in Wonderland with a touch of Narnia." It's a safe bet that if you like Harry Potter, Neil Gaiman's young adult stories, classic fairytales or fairytale adaptations, you'll like Fayborn. But hey, don't take my word for it! Read the reviews on Amazon and Goodreads!

P.S. Shout-out to Dashinvaine for doing Fayborn's cover art!

I will be there tomorrow (Friday), wandering around & playing tabletop games. Say hi if you see me! I'll wear a vest over a button-down with rolled-up sleeves (no top hat).

Folks seem to ejoy my Homestead 1 and 2 screenshots, so I thought you might like a tour of my Minecraft abode. We built this in Survival mode on a private server, about two years ago, and still use it as home base for the server.

View from the back door (entering from the cow pasture, as seen in the screenshots):

In the far left corner, an Enchanting Library:

That same library, from the 2nd floor catwalk:

Standing in the library, looking diagonally across the House:

On the opposite side of the fireplace is a second fireplace, central to the crafting area, dormitory, & storage library:

If we turn to the right, we look back at the first (primary) room of the House:

The storage library...

Storage Library 1 by MrWootton rather extensive:

Upstairs, set into the hillside, is the Potions Laboratory:

And there you have it! Thanks for joining me.

P.S. I write MUCH better than I Minecraft, so if you think this is cool, you should check out my books.
