Hello everyone! I'm Lex Chase and Aidee was awesome enough to let me drop by today for the Bayou Fairy Tale Blog Tour! Bayou Fairy Tale is the sequel to Americana Fairy Tale, it tells the tale of fuck-up fairy tale princess dude Taylor Hatfield and his true love the jackass redneck huntsman Corentin Devereaux, as they embark on a road trip quest to save the world. How can they possibly screw it up? The Fairy Tales of the Open Road universe takes your favorite fairy tales and blends them up into barely recognizable bits. Some of them are very subtle, some of them are more literal. This ain't yo mama's Once Upon a Time. Fairy tale reinterpretations aren't anything new. The characters are in the public domain, but it's what you do with them is the trick. Taylor and Corentin's adventures are not for the die hard purists. If a dude that's a princess wasn't your first biggest clue. I love Disney movies. Love them. Since writing this series, Sleeping Beauty is my favorite, and not for Maleficent—though she is a badass—but for Aurora. Yes. Aurora. Some people love Elsa, others love Ariel or Belle. But my heart of hearts will always belong to Aurora.

Blurb: Modern day fairy tale princess Taylor Hatfield has problems. One: he’s a guy. Two: he’s Sleeping Beauty, the most useless princess in existence. Throw in his true love, Corentin Devereaux, a huntsman descended from child-eating witches, and Taylor’s younger brother, Atticus—this generation’s Snow White—who tried to kill him. That didn’t go so hot. For two years, Taylor and Corentin live their Happily Ever After. But Corentin’s cursed to lose his memory every seven days, including his life with Taylor—a painful reminder that he can’t provide for the man he loves. Taylor insists Corentin has the strength to succeed, and when Taylor discovers a way to break the curse, he is more than willing to pay the cost. When an enchanted blizzard devastates Corentin’s hometown of New Orleans, Taylor is convinced Atticus is to blame and grows desperate to find him amidst the Big Easy turned frozen wasteland. Corentin believes Taylor is chasing a ghost while he chases the ghosts of his own past. Old tensions scratch open scars, leaving both to wonder if they have each other’s best interests at heart. The clock is ticking until Corentin loses his memory, and the rabbit hole goes so deep they may never come out.
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 cinematic, sweeping adventure—and 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, and 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. She is grateful for and humbled by all the readers. She knows very well she wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for them and welcomes feedback. You can find in the Intarwebz here: Facebook | Twitter | Tumblr | Instagram | WebSite: http://lexchase.com
