Winter Wiles

 A Faerie’s Tale
By Ann Narcisian Videan

 Eirlys Sparkle-Bright read the scribbles on her page out loud in a low voice.

“Twas’ the night before winter and all through the realm,
not a snowflake had fallen to grace the yon elm.”

The wee Winter Faerie stared down into the brick fireplace, wishing for weather cold enough to warrant a fire. She flicked a strand of white hair from her cheek and tsked.

Faerie Queen Titania looked up from her book, “What is it, Eirlys?”

The Winter Faerie bowed her head as an uncomfortable warmth spread up her neck. She hated blushing. Even the smallest rush of blood to her cheeks always made her think of the Fleet Foxes’ lyrics from “White Winter Hymnal.” “…and turn the white snow red as strawberries in the summertime.”

“I— I am so sorry to interrupt your research, Your Majesty, but I was trying out a verse to explain our lack of snow. I know your work on the topic is much more important.”

The queen inclined her head to one side, and smiled in understanding at her young poetry-loving apprentice.

Eirlys met her queen’s gaze. “You know I’ve done everything I can to make it happen, Your Majesty. I spread the winter faerie dust throughout the land, just as I have done for one hundred years. Yet, it’s mid-December and not a snowflake in sight. The trees have barely lost their leaves. No snow, no ice… not even a frost. What could be going on?”

The Queen’s brow furrowed, and she stared out the open window toward the elm forest and lake beyond.

“Frost.” She stated the word under her breath and gently closed her reference book and laid it aside. Her expression hardened, and she stood up. “This is beyond a fluke of nature. This is a manipulation.”

Following the queen’s train of thought, Eirlys jumped to her feet. Her parchment and quill landed on the cool hearth. “Jack Frost, that blaggard! I think I saw him here in Delfaerune at the end of autumn… with a yeti.”

Novel-inspired faerie art and books = November featured artist at Birt’s Bistro

Our Absolutely Wild! Faerie’s Tales and portals are on display during November 2017 in the Birt’s Bistro gift shop in Surprise, AZ. You’ll discover faerie portal note cards, magnets, our coloring book with writing prompts, and Song of the Ocarina, book 1 in the Delfaerune Rhapsody series—my fantasy novel that inspired it all.

Sculptor Cherie Scott, my business partner, hand created every original numbered and signed piece. You’ll discover themes like Halloween, autumn, and Christmas; plus books, s’mores, and Trufaela trees.

I wrote all the Faerie’s Tales and the novel, and illustrated the faerie portal coloring book and the coloring note cards, and other fantastical whimsy, including a few fractured Faerie’s Tales. (In one, Cinderella breaks free from Grimm’s and is running around placing one shoe on each eligible bachelor’s doorstep, trying to find a better life.} Delightful and whimsical, trust me.

I also promise Birt’s will surprise you. It’s worth a stop in to shop, browse the book store, and enjoy a scrumptious lunch—their chef is amazing. You’ll find Birt’s at 16752 N. Greasewood St. Surprise, Ariz., 623-584-0065. It’s open seven days a week, 7 a.m.–3 p.m. with Happy Hour on Fridays only from 5 –7 p.m.

Beyond whimsy: Experience the impact of faerie doors

SCAN0203
One of my drawings for the Absolutely Wild! faerie door coloring book.

As you may have heard, my dear friend Cherie and I recently embarked on a journey to create Absolutely Wild! faerie doors. The New Zealand Fae characters in my Delfaerune Rhapsody fantasy novel series inspired the idea, and we plan to do a line of Delfaerune Fae doors tied into the books. We also plan to write custom faerie tales to accompany the wee whimsical doors we craft for art
and gifts. A coloring book is also in the works.

But… we’re finding that more than whimsy can come into play with this idea.

Check out the faerie doors gracing the city in this video. Public art and imagination bloom with the possibilities…

Also, to further experience the power of a faerie door, read and watch the touching short film, The Gnomist. Make sure you have tissues nearby.

Where else have you seen the impact of faerie doors?
