A Change is In the Air
If you've sniffed around my website, you may have noticed a quiet little change this summer. Or maybe you've shopped on Amazon and wondered where book 6 went. It's still for sale, never fear. But I've made a change to the series to make it more clear what's going on. When I released book 6 last year, a lot of you were confused why it wasn't Ferryl and Adelaide's story. While I thought I had explained that the book would be a new storyline in the same world, it was obvious fairly quickly to me that I hadn't made that
Stand By Me // Ben E. King Cover
My latest cover is live on YouTube. Whenever I listen to this song I'm immediately transported to my childhood, dancing on my father's toes in the formal dining room in front of our massive '80s stereo, listening to Motown on his collection of 45s. Aside from the fact that this is an incredible song, it also happens to be quite possibly the world's most perfect. So here's my love letter to those days. Enjoy!

No Longer Slaves // A21 Fundraiser
Not just the stuff of fiction. Many of you know that my latest book, The Stag at Hand, is a story of a woman trapped in sexual slavery. “I think that you like to hide your fear as long as possible. That you like to square your shoulders and lift your chin and pretend that you are strong. That you are someone worth something.” ~From The Stag at Hand by Morgan G Farris But the truth is, slavery is not just the stuff of fiction or a thing of the past. It is estimated that tens of millions of people
Book 6, The Chalam Færytales Volume II // OUT TODAY
Friends, I am so excited to share with you the 6th book in my series, which is the start of Volume II of The Chalam Færytales: The Stag at Hand. Here is the blurb: Morgan G Farris’s acclaimed series continues with The Stag at Hand, the sixth book in The Chalam Færytales: the story of unlikely allies Miriam and Ezra as they seek to uncover the mystery of the White Stag in a Victorian fantasy world of magic, peril, and devastating romance. A thousand years after the Great War, the world is no closer to peace. The legend of the Promised One has

New Release Date Announced
I didn't want to do this. Truly. I had every intention of releasing Book VI this October. Well, as you can see, it's December and you still don't have the book in your hands. There are several reasons for the delay, but the primary reason has to do with losing my Facebook account entirely (read this post for the details of that saga), which basically sent my entire marketing strategy into a tailspin. Couple that with the holiday season and... voila! The book is delayed. BUT... The new release date has been announced and I am happy to report that
I Need Your Help
I am asking for your help. You may have noticed that on Facebook there has been radio silence from me for a few weeks. There’s a reason for that… My Facebook ad account was hacked and I had thousands of dollars stolen. I plan to share the details of this nightmare more in the future on YouTube and Instagram, but needless to say, this has put a HUGE damper on my plans to release the 6th book in my series, The Stag at Hand. Without a Facebook account, I have no way to promote the book’s release there. It’s a frustrating,
The Promised One // Hardcover Now Available
Well kids, I've been teasing it for months, but the time has come! The Promised One is NOW AVAILABLE IN HARDCOVER! You can pick it up anywhere books are sold, but here are a few popular retail sites: Amazon Barnes and Noble The Bookshop I know what you're asking: what about the rest of the series? Keep your shirt on. The rest will follow suit soon! It takes a LOT of work to prep these titles, and since The Promised One is the first to be released in Hardcover, I used it as a template for the rest.
Book Six Title Reveal
I've been waiting a long time to share this with you. There are lots of reasons for that. A global pandemic. A bunch of HUGE changes in my personal life (I quit my full-time job in marketing, we bought a house, I homeschooled my kids last year...), etcetera, etcetera. But the truth is, the main reason I've been waiting is because this book has had to be massaged and ironed out, combed through and perfected for a long time. And there's a reason for that. But more on that later. Without making you wait any longer, I'm so excited to
The Chalam Færyatles // Coming Soon in Hardback
I’ve been waiting with bated breath to announce this. It’s been a long time coming... This summer, I’m FINALLY releasing my books in hardback!!! And in case you can’t tell, I’ve updated the artwork!!!! I am in LOVE with this style. It’s my own hybrid of a few things: Victorian book covers, dark whimsy, and of course, fairy tales.

The Most Wonderful Time // Christmas EP NOW AVAILABLE
Guys, I've been wanting to do this for years. Transitioning into working for myself full-time has been such a sweet process, affording me the opportunity to do things I've been wanting to do for years. This Christmas EP is a work of love and a fun project that I am so excited to share with you.

All songs are written, arranged, composed, and performed by moi (except of course, I did not
The Perdurables – Chapter One
Notice: Contains adult language and thematic violence. Reader discretion advised. Chapter I The attacks always happened in the open air—the wind in her face, the skies clear and cool, and she a target, a beacon. A fool. She banked left hard, dodging a branch as she made for the cover under the canopy. She flew as hard as her wings could carry her, not daring to risk the time it might cost her just to look over her shoulder, to see how close they were. The forest stretched before her—a maze of shadow and moonlight, flora and rot. She could
The Perdurables // Official Trailer
It's here, my friends! The official trailer for The Perdurables, The Chalam Færytales Book IV is out! I'm so excited to share this one with you. It's a book I never planned to write, but a story that wouldn't quit hounding me until I gave it its day in the sun. So without further ado, I present to you the latest trailer, my friends. Enjoy!
The Parallax – Chapter Five
Chapter V "Where is she?” the king asked Michael. After sharing the news with his friends and taking a few moments to let them reel, he had asked Michael to call a council meeting so he could meet with the people who helped run this kingdom. To tell them that damning truth, too. “She said she would be here,” Michael responded, standing shoulder to shoulder with Ferryl. The king’s council room buzzed with advisors—lords and dukes from around the kingdom who had been granted lands, powers, and a place on the council in exchange for loyalty to the throne. In
The Parallax – Chapter Four
Chapter IV The carriage bumped and jolted down the gravel drive, but Adelaide’s hand rested firmly in her husband’s. The dreary clouds hung low, a blanket of gray over the city of Benalle, casting silvery light through the window and onto Ferryl’s unruly locks. The castle loomed before them, great white stone halls flanked by towering turrets that looked as if they staked the castle to the edge of the cliffs. The black-and-white flag of Navah flew proudly at each corner of the castle, greeting Ferryl’s return. Hailing the return of the king. And the queen they did not know
The Parallax – Chapter Three
Chapter III General Titus Melamed made his way down the busy streets of the little village near his home. Cobblestones and dirt combined to make a mess of the roads during the wet, cold winter that had settled in northern Midvar. He passed by the apothecary he had visited frequently in the last few weeks, procuring tonics for his wife’s aches and pains. All part of a normal pregnancy, she had promised. He prayed to the gods every day that it was true. But today was not for a trek to the apothecary. Today, he had a very different but
The Parallax – Chapter Two
Chapter II The room was dark. Too dark for the middle of the day. Michael walked gingerly down the small hall that spilled into the sitting room before him. The windows that boasted views of the hazelnut forest beyond the castle were hidden behind thick velvet curtains, allowing not a single ray of sunlight to penetrate the space. Instead, ghostly orbs of candlelight hovered in the room like the souls of the dead. A candle on a table. A single candle by the chair. Hardly enough light to see the next step in front of him. But Michael walked on.
The Parallax – Chapter One
Chapter I The snow bit through his gloves, burning his trembling knuckles as they ground into the white expanse. His breath came in gusts, puffing clouds around his beloved’s face as she lay trembling beneath him. He kept his head low, below the fray, his body covering hers as best he could as arrow after arrow whizzed over them. The last one had been too close for comfort, the dribble of blood on her cheek already drying on her skin. “Through the trees!” “Don’t let them get away!” The Haravellian soldiers shouted their commands as the king and queen of
