And you guys know it's Tuesday, right?  And you know what that means, right?  It means I've got a FLY HOUSE teaser for you, right?  Of course right!!  

So, do you want to meet Maeve Aypotu, the badass black sheep of THE FLY HOUSE?
Here is a taste of what Maeve's all about on this teaser Tuesday:

THE FLY HOUSE 
Teaser #2

Once or twice, Maeve had been on the verge of giving in.  Sometimes it seemed easier—settling for a world she hated, but knew how to navigate.  Unfortunately, she sucked at holding the rigid pose required to fit into the airbrushed, fireplace-painted lives of the upper class.  The pretentious gestures and fraudulent etiquette made her want to barf club soda.  There was just no place in the cream of her society’s crop for a girl who could knot a cherry stem with her tongue and dangle it from her navel piercing.  
Maeve scared off the Metro Society Rats pretty easily by refusing to bite her tongue when her opinions surfaced.  It terrified them when she called bullshit on their excuses.  Panicked them when she demanded respect.  It made her an outcast when she refused to offer them second chances.  
The Rats had no idea what to do with her.  They didn’t view her tattoos and piercings and buckled shitkickers as a symbol of her strength.  Instead, they regarded them as the diamond on a cobra’s head.  The Rats were scared witless at the prospect of tangling with something so much more powerful than themselves.





 I hope you'll love her!  Have a wonderful Tuesday, my lovelies!
