I LOVE Wonder Woman.
There. I said it. I have a deep affection for all female super heroes, but Wonder Woman is my very favorite. Did you see the Wonder Woman trailer?? Did you squeal like a thirteen-year-old girl? No? Just me?
If you haven't seen it, I've linked it above. Do yourself a favor, go watch it and let yourself squeal like a kid. You have my permission. (Mostly so I'm not the only one.)
Sure, WW is a boss, but what the hell does it have to do with me?
Well, I write Alpha Females. Heroines who don't need to be saved or coddled or pandered to. Women who can hold their own in a fight, and can WIN. (And they get the guy, too. Bonus!)
Here are three reasons why Alpha Females are the cat's pajamas:
1. They can save themselves.
2. They usually save the day/guy/world, all without smudging their eyeliner.
3. They do what they want, when they want, and don't ask permission.
So really, they do what guys do, only, you know, with lady parts. Yes, I skipped the dreaded "V" word. Ya'll are new, I can't scare you right off the bat.
That comes later. Hehehe...

Ashes to Ashes
I get mere inches away from her when I’m hit in the temple by a huge hand. It takes a second for the room to swim into focus again, but when it does, I see a fully phased Kyle looking like the boogeyman from a nightmare.
What the actual fuck?
His black hair is disheveled; his eyes have gone full black, and his thick, blunt fingers have curled into talons. And he’s hissing at me through two-inch fangs that would better fit a lion. The hulking man is standing between Nicola and I, his arms thrown wide to prevent me from getting to her.
Why is he protecting her? Other than Aurelia and I, I’ve never seen a Wraith give two shits about a Phoenix in my life and vice versa.
I’m two seconds away from pulling my Ruger and putting a bullet in his head when Nicola intervenes. She gently places her dainty hand on his shoulder instantly calming him. His sclera bleeds back to white, and his hands uncurl, the talons retracting back into his nail beds. His fangs are the last to go, and I can hear the dull crunch of bone reforming in his jaw.
I make the mistake of relaxing my posture, and then like the fucking asshole he is, he strikes, tackling me to the ground with his forearm against my jaw. Before I can retaliate in kind, Aurelia gasps.
Then she screams.
She screams so loud, and so long I know I’m going to kill whatever monster is haunting her.
No matter what.
I have so much new and awesome stuff coming down the pipe.Take a gander at all of the things!!
