Wytchfae – Runes was published in October 2012, and I’m so excited that SCP gave me a contract for six more books in the Wytchfae series. I look forward to sharing these stories with readers. The Wytchfae world is composed of intersecting dimensions, only one of which is the familiar human world that we know. Getting from one dimension to another can be tricky, especially if you are traveling from the human plane to a fae dimension. In Wytchfae – Runes the heroine Kelly has to muster all the energy and allies she can, including her patron goddess Epona, just to get to the in-between area. Only the mysterious Guardian of the Between can grant permission to travel further into the netherworld where the Viking Ingvar is being held prisoner. Not only is the Guardian protecting his domain from intruders, he’s also saving humans from a wide variety of unruly demons.
Several of the fae domains in the Wytchfae world are generally loosely connected. For example, the netherworld areas, ruled by the Guardian of the Between, the Queen of the Grims, and Goddess Helle of the Underworld, link together by means of long cavernous corridors. Other places use transportation reminiscent of a hover train. The heroine of Guardian of the Deep - Wytchfae 2 rides on one of these when she leaves the undersea home of her lover.
A rare but favored means of travel for fae is the spotty hole. It is a type of spatial portal that is convenient to use when long distances are involved. The main drawback is that spotty holes rarely stay in one place. They tend to appear and disappear at will. No one knows how spotty holes came about, although some consider them natural phenomena.
Time travel is another aspect of the Wytchfae world. Those who dwell in human places require a particular type of Wytchfae, a time singer, to energetically “sing” them back and forth in time. Fae use time trips as vacations. Just as we might book a trip to Ireland or Bali, a fae might buy a ticket for Ireland 1500 or Bali 1970. When the succubus heroine of Guardian of the Deep – Wytchfae 2 takes a trip to 1950 Montana, she uses a popular type of fae transport, a submarine that materializes near its destination.
You would think that a very powerful type of being, such as a goddess, would have an easier time when traveling among dimensions or time periods. However, goddesses can have a tougher time of it than some, as will be seen in Mind Your Goddess – Wytchfae 3. Thank you, SCP, for your support in bringing the Wytchfae world to light.
