The 9th Pawn Cover Reveal

Welcome to Wonderland!

Or at least Rose Sinclair’s Big Bad Magic version of it. This April, we had a sneaky release of The 8th Rank. Where Malcolm Wolf is a mage without memories, searching for his rebellious childhood crush Robin before their magic-fueled journey ends with the murder of the Queen of Hearts.

Today we are so excited to give you a heads up and reveal the cover to the next standalone in the Big Bad Magic series: The 9th Pawn!

A playful necromancer. A prince looking for love. And a quest to save a sleeping princess.

Madison is just a simple hatter fulfilling the whims of the fussy aristocracy. Or at least he’s pretty sure he was in one lifetime. Now more of a tea drinking sort with a pension for necromancy.

After meeting a curious young prince named Henri, Madison is ready to kiss as many frogs as it takes to win his heart. In all of his lifetimes, Madison has never met anyone as captivating as this magical prince.

To prove his sincerity as a suitor, Madison is sent on a quest to help stabilize the kingdoms that he helped tear apart. After thinking love was in his past, can Madison now keep the spark of romance they ignited together alive?

The 9th Pawn features hurt/comfort, first times, and a forbidden tea-filled age gap romance staring M/M leads as well as a secondary F/F relationship and able to be read as a standalone. You can pre-order the Alice and Mad Hatter’s story right now and it will magically appear on your kindle December 28th!

Introducing The 7th Queen

The 7th Queen is the newest tale in the quickly growing Big Bad Magic series. A world where fairy tales combine with the queer coded villains trope. Then gives them all the happily ever after ending they truly deserve.

Join Claudia as she stumbles across white rabbits and discovers a wondrous world of magic.

We asked author Rose Sinclair, why writing a series like this was so important to them.

“Before The 7th Queen, and the other stories in the Big Bad Magic series, I did not consider myself a romance writer. I was a science fiction or fantasy writer who might have characters fall in love. That all changed in The 8th Rank, and the upcoming The 9th Pawn. The driving force of these characters is their love of someone else. And within that journey for Mal and Claudia they learn to love themselves.

Because that self love, that acceptance of whatever you desire, and being brave enough to confess that truth in a world that makes you feel monstrous is something often missing. Too often there’s a false dichotomy that says art must be either queer pain or # Positive Vibes Only. That isn’t true to anyone’s life. Retelling fairytales and accepting “villainy” allows readers to not only see these characters in a new way. But maybe be seen themselves.

The 7th Queen is a short story prequel gives me the chance to focus on hope, on the quiet moments between Claudia and Alice. Because it’s often the softness that get’s us through the pain in any world. If F/F can add to the care we have for each other (fictional or otherwise) then I’d be honored if you signed up for my newsletter.

Mission Statement Change

Some big changes are going to how we run as a blog.

I’ve been thinking about publishing as an end destination. But in my experience, it’s the journey that frustrates authors. Makes conditions in which they end up quitting the thing they love. And I’ve been looking to change that. Create a paradigm shift.

Working as a team is my go-to. That’s probably no surprise if you look at my novels, or at the Fuck Yeah Asexual blog, or Creative Aces Publishing. But the tricky thing with partnerships is people aren’t always as committed as you. Often times it’s not even through their fault. We are all complicated people trying to make good for ourselves within systems that are broken.

But I’m still here. And I’ve been looking for an answer for at least a year now. I’d get an idea, and think, this is the one. But then it wasn’t quite right. So I’d start another thing. And the problem with these ideas is that my passion keeps getting fragmented. New trees planted, but the forest becomes lost.

Today, I aim to fix that. Over the next month you’ll see a rebranding of Creative Aces Publishing and what it’s mission statement is. In part, because I realized I don’t want a company, I want commune. An author collective where we help each other create books. Aces, disabled people, any voice that is being ignored under capitalism.

Instead of exclusively taking a book from query to release. I want to help authors however they need. To gain the ability to take on projects I’m passionate about even if they don’t publish with us. There’s a lot to publishing, and I want to be there for as many or as few steps as the author needs. Still at no cost to them.

The inspiration for this publishing shakeup can be traced back to a quote painted on a wall in my old art class. “Art is the triumph over chaos.” Those words have been with me since high school. Each time I narrowed my focus I got further and further away from that quote. At the risk of sounding cheesy, in 2020, I have a new clarity that the answer I’ve been looking for has been with me the whole time.

That is why I’m consolidating all projects dealing with books under the Art Over Chaos banner. The divides between personal author blogging, the Fyeah book features, and the publishing itself will dissolve so more art can be created and celebrated.

What it means for this blog: Instead of simply a personal author blog with some crossposts about books, it’s going to become a hub for publishing, authors, and book blogging. Only the following months the theme will change and it will offer so much more than before. Thank you for coming with me on this journey, and I hope we can work on something together soon!
