Welcome to Belied Outcast Legends. We’re honored you’ve stopped by. This website is an ever-evolving vision of our love for cryptids, creatures, and creation. Mel is all about horror and the macabre. There’s a Rougarou running lose on her side of the office. Tammy is all about romance and happy endings. She’s helping a sixteen-year-old cope with a glitching fairy and the obnoxious boy next door. We don’t lead exciting lives, but what goes on inside our heads can be pretty fun.
Here are a few things you’ll find on our website:
- Check our our blog for updates on this crazy adventure we call … work?
- Cryptid of the Month, which comes out the middle of each month, features a new character design by Mel Ayers. These are found under the graphics tab. A new graphic will be uploaded on September 12th.
- Tammy follows up the next week with a flash fiction piece. Here is last months: The Crossover. You’ll find more under the short stories tab as time goes on. The next story will be published on September 19th, and I can tell you it features a woman in a heap of trouble who comes face to face with her biggest regret.
Also Happening at BOL:
- Agent Representation. Both Mel and Tammy recently signed with the C.Y.L.E agency. The journey continues. Can’t wait to see where this takes us.
- Newsletter sign up is here. Inside each issue there will be a chapter to a serial romance sci fi novella called Catch Me If You Can. Chapter One starts in September. If you sign up later, we’ll make sure you can retrieve the archives. The newsletter also contains an article called the Creator’s Trademark that shows how we infuse elements of creation into our works. For signing up, we want to give you a free graphic. Just follow the links in the welcome letter after you register. This graphic won’t be available anywhere else.
- Giveaway. For the month of September, we’ll be giving away a copy of the movie Ready Player One and the book. We love this story so much, we’re choosing two winners! Register by signing up for the newsletter before September 18th. Two random winners will be notified by email and then announced in the October Newsletter.
- Novella–No Longer Alone (Tammy just finished the first draft and will be starting edits the first of September. Mel is working on a cover design).
- If all goes as planned, Tammy will be starting the 4th Belied Outcast Novel mid-month. If you want to read about the first three, sign up for the newsletter.
- Mel is working on comic books that will accompany the novels. She designed her first book cover for Catch Me If You Can. You can view it in the newsletter.
That’s it for now. Thank you so much for stopping by. We hope you’ll join us on our blog and check back often for updates.
