Fantasy Erotic Romance

Chronicles of the Four Courts, Book 2
Date Published: May 1st, 2017
Publisher: Champagne Book Club

A fae Knight’s life belongs to the monarchies, but for Finn of the Morrigan, his life comes second to his heart. And his heart belongs to his ladies.
The changeling princesses of the Springtime elves share a unique bond with their Knight—a bond that must remain perfectly secret. When the Queen of the Elves discovers their passionate love, she curses and exiles Finn from the elfin lands forever. With their guardian sent away to a lifeless wasteland, the royal changelings have no defense when the unseen enemies of the Four Courts attack, and the House of Elves falls.
To save his loves, Finn will need to break out of prison, undertake a perilous journey across the lands of Thairy, face wicked creatures, rogue Knights, and one of the most dangerous monsters in the fae world.
The enemy will soon learn what it means to provoke a true Son of War.


Is There a Message in Your Novel That You Want Readers to Grasp?
Elfin Nights started out with the idea in mind of "the perfect love triangle". While it's first and foremost an erotic fantasy adventure, if there's a message, it's about polyamory, the capability of lovers to be more than a pair, or a binary choice over which heart to break, or menage as a sexual fetish. Again, the book is erotic, but the more important aspect is the love, affection, and devotion all three of the trio share.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
Fight scenes and, surprisingly, sex scenes. There's so much to choreograph and you have to strike a belivable balance of actions and reactions, stakes and consequences.

How many books have you written and which is your favorite?
I have six novels out and six short stories, four novels that are written but are waiting for me to get other work off my desk before I submit them, and five novel-length stories in some stage of progress but not yet finished. I actually like Elfin Nights best, now that it's out; I feel so...connected with the story and the characters, I had that gut feeling that the storytelling really  hit the right cord.

If You had the chance to cast your main character from Hollywood today, who would you pick and why?
Oh, that's easy. Chris Hemsworth would play Finn.

When did you begin writing?
As long as I can remember I've been telling stories. The first story I remember sharing with others was when I was 6. As far as how long I've been writing with the hope of making a living at it, probably since I was 17.

How long did it take to complete your first book?
My first book, which I will probably never release, took 6 years. The second book I wrote--The Pact, which was published last year--took me a month. Go figure!

Did you have an author who inspired you to become a writer?
Like I said, I've always wanted to be a storyteller so I couldn't pinpoint someone who inspired the initial fascination with the craft. Along the way, though, I met Jim  Butcher, and he was extremely encouraging and supportive. I left that signing feeling incredibly refreshed, creatively, and excited to work. I started writing Chronicles of the Four Courts  the very next day.

What is your favorite part of the writing process?
Absolutely, it's when readers ask me what happens next. I love to know my stories are exciting for them!

Describe your latest book in 4 words.
Kinky elf menage adventure

Can you share a little bit about your current work or what is in the future for your writing?
  At the moment I'm polishing up the sequel to The Pact and hoping to submit that to my editor by the end of the month. After that, I'll be focusing heavily on the next book in my Blood and Fire dark erotic series.

When she isn't visiting the worlds of immortals, demons, dragons and goblins, Brantwijn fills her time with artistic endeavors: sketching, painting, customizing My Little Ponies and sewing plushies for friends. She can't handle coffee unless there's enough cream and sugar to make it a milkshake, but try and sweeten her tea and she will never forgive you. She moonlights as a futon for four lazy cats, loves tabletop role-play games, and can spend hours pencilling naughty, sexy illustrations in her secret notebooks.
Brantwijn has two romance series currently in-progress with Champagne Books. She's also had short stories published in several small press anthologies. She has author pages on GoodReads and Amazon, and loves to see reader comments on her work. Her short stories and audio readings occasionally pop up her website, www.brantwijn.com.
