OS: Welcome Lex Chase! Here to tell us about the upcoming book Urban Fairy Tale! Thanks for stopping by!
LC: Hello, Internet! I’m Lex Chase and Morgan was kind enough to have me aboard for the Urban Fairy Tale blog tour!
Urban Fairy Tale is the final book of the Screw-up Princess and Skillful Huntsman trilogy! Our heroes are dude Princess Taylor Hatfield, fuck-up extraordinaire, and his true love jackass redneck Huntsman Corentin Devereaux. Together they save the world from the threats to Enchant kind.
But let’s talk about the unsung heroes of the series.
The fairy godparents Ringo and Honeysuckle.
Fairy godfather Ringo has served Taylor faithfully since the princess’s birth. Also his partner in crime and worst enabler. He weathered the storms with Taylor from every skinned knee, to fistfights on the playground, to an angsty teenager, to a fuck-up college student. As Taylor stumbled through life, Ringo called it life experience. Still, they’re known to sit together drinking hard lemonade and binge watching Survivor.
Ringo’s wife Honeysuckle serves as a fairy godmother to Taylor’s brother Atticus. Honeysuckle is grace and motion, always proper. And a bit of a perfectionist. But this gets her into a lot of trouble as she insists on everything being done to her standards. She’s doted on Atticus and has fostered him into growing into a dignified young man, but considered Taylor wild and reckless.
They join me today for an interview moderated by the Queen of Hearts, Aliss Magnus. A bit about Aliss, she serves as the leader of the Library, a clandestine organization devoted to defending Enchants domestic and abroad. Poised, confident, and efficient, she is the level head among these quirky weirdos.
So! Take it away guys!
Aliss checked over her cards. “So, both of you. How do you manage such difficult Princesses?”
Ringo sighed. “Taylor’s not… difficult. He’s just… free-spirited.”
Honeysuckle narrowed her eyes. “Free-spirited? More like a walking disaster.”
Ringo shrugged. “So, he can’t wash his clothes for crap.”
“He shrank my sweater! My sweater! I’m not Barbie-sized anymore!” Honeysuckle scowled.
“To me you are,” Ringo said with a smile.
“Really?” Honeysuckle asked. “Oh. Sugardrop.”
Aliss cleared her throat. “Were getting off track.” She flipped to another card. “On the topic of true love, if given the chance when you pick the same true love for your Princesses?”
“No!” Honeysuckle snapped.
“Yes!” Ringo shouted.
Honeysuckle blinked. “Yes? Corentin Devereaux? Really?”
Ringo shrugged. “He’s a good guy!”
“He cleans underneath his nails with the steak knives is and put them back in the drawer!” Honeysuckle said.
Ringo looked at Aliss. “Help me out here, boss lady.”
Aliss looked down at the cards, pressing her lips into a grim line. “No comment.”
Honeysuckle elbowed him. “Ixnay on the Corentin-ay.”
“What?” Ringo asked. “I mean sure he axed Aliss’s girlfriend. But he was a different guy back then!”
Honeysuckle shoved Ringo toward Aliss. “Here. Do what you will. I won’t tell a soul.”
“You love him too much,” Aliss said.
Honeysuckle sighed. “Sadly.”
“I’m quite the catch!” Ringo said, indignant and puffed out his chest.
“At the Bass Pro,” Aliss said, smirking.
Honeysuckle and Ringo stared at her their jaws hanging slack.
Aliss flicked her finger and made sizzling sound. “I win.”

Modern day fairy-tale princess, Taylor Hatfield, has problems. One, he’s a guy. Two, he’s an insomniac Sleeping Beauty. Three, his practically perfect brother, Atticus Hatfield, this generation’s Snow White, has been irrevocably corrupted by the Witchking. The Library, a clandestine organization, seeks to write “The End” on Atticus, and Taylor faces the impossible when his own parents endorse his brother’s demise. With his true love, the huntsman Corentin Devereaux at his side, they once again set out to find Atticus, but Atticus won’t go down without a fight.
The quest ends how it began. But instead of the quirky, corkscrewing Americana road trip, Taylor and Corentin must contend with the dangers of the urban jungle. With an unexpected ally at their side, they’re forced to question all they knew about the legacy of Snow White.
As the world of the Enchants and the mundane hang in the balance, Taylor knows what he must do…. Go pick an apple.
About the Author:
Lex Chase once heard Stephen King say in a commercial, “We’re all going to die, I’m just trying to make it a little more interesting.” Now she’s on a mission to make the world a hell of a lot more interesting.
Weaving tales of sweeping cinematic adventure—depending on how she feels that day—Lex sprinkles in high-speed chases, shower scenes, and more explosions than a Hollywood blockbuster. Her pride is in telling stories of men who kiss as much as they kick ass. If you’re going to march into the depths of hell, it better be beside the one you love.
Lex is a pop culture diva, her DVR is constantly backlogged, she has intense emotions about Hannibal’s Hannigram, and she unapologetically loved the ending of Lost. She wouldn’t last five minutes without technology in the event of the apocalypse and has nightmares about refusing to leave her cats behind.
