My Top Five Moments 

With Lincoln and Myla

As part of the launch tour for my new book, LINCOLN, the lovely folks at Whatever You Can Still Betray have asked me to list my top five highlights of writing Lincoln and Myla. (Honestly, they asked for ten but I got blabby, so it’s five.) 

So with that prelude, behold my top five! 

πŸ”₯Myla-Lincoln Highlight Number Five: Lincoln Seeing Myla Rising From The Lake. 

In this scene, she’s covered in doxy demons and laughing. This section was loosely based on Excalibur being lifted up by the Lady of the Lake. It’s part of the Arthurian legends and, as such, I think it shows the union of male power (sword) with female leadership energy (a lake lady, a round table, right before might, not being a dick in armor, you get the idea.) I write a ton on this subject elsewhere if you’re interested. Basically, in writing ANGELBOUND I wanted to re-launch the concept of female leadership energy, and that included having a hero while still respecting that power. So this scene—and its reliance on Arthurian legend—is one of my favourites. 

πŸ”₯Myla-Lincoln Highlight Number Four: The Fountain Kiss 

On that same vein, I love Lincoln and Myla’s kiss by the fountain. It ties into how he first saw her by the lake and—instead of being threatened by her energy and battle power—he feels it awaken something inside him. Joy. Love. Rapture. Again, a big part of my goal with female battle energy is proving that a man can be obsessed with it and yet remain a smoking-hot prince at the same time. This scene was meant to reinforce that concept. 

πŸ”₯Myla-Lincoln Highlight Number Three: Mister The Prince 

There are so many ‘Lincoln is a douchebag’ scenes from Angelbound that are re-explained in LINCOLN. GAH! I want to dissect them all here, but SPOILERS. Instead, I’ll just say that Lincoln has always been consistently a nobleman (as in “Noble and a MAN,” as Camilla puts it) and that’s true in Angelbound. GAH GAH GAH!!! 

πŸ”₯Myla-Lincoln Highlight Number Two: The Tinea Fight 

I love the scene where Lincoln and Myla take down the tinea demon. In my work, I don’t like one person to fight while someone else hides in a corner (in fact, I have a rule against ever writing such a scene!). I’m also not a fan of two people fighting in separate corners of the room. In my opinion, it’s a more powerful symbol when the couple fights in tandem because, in my experience, that’s how life really works. Long story short, I spend a lot of time thinking up battle scenes where the couple works together and therefore becomes more powerful than they would if they’d gone after the big bad separately. The tinea was my first try at this, and I’m still happy with the result. 

πŸ”₯Myla-Lincoln Highlight Number One: The Tithe Fight 

On that note, I’m really happy with the new battle scene at the end of LINCOLN. It’s got more of the teamwork stuff like the tinea battle, but it’s also funny as fuck (at least to me!) I work in a shared start-up space, and my neighbour says she always knows when I’m on a roll because I laugh out loud. Never laughed harder than when writing the end of LINCOLN!! 

And there you have it: my top five highlights of writing Lincoln and Myla. Thanks SO MUCH for asking me to stop by—I had a blast making this list. I look forward to returning on a future tour!

Angelbound Origins #1.5
Christina Bauer
Publication Date: February 24, 2019
Genre: YA Fantasy, Paranormal
When it comes to fighting demons, Prince Lincoln is the greatest warrior in the history of his people, the thrax. Now Lincoln faces his hardest fight yet…and it’s not on a traditional battlefield.

Lincoln is falling in love. And the girl is part demon.

Between a fated dance at the Ryder mansion…a life-changing walk through a hedgerow maze…and a massive battle with none other than the King of Hell…Lincoln realizes that he wants to share his life with Myla Lewis, the part-demon girl who has captured his heart. However, an evil thrax noble—the powerful Earl of Acca—is prepared to do anything to stop Lincoln and Myla from having a future.

But Lincoln won’t give up on his Myla. Ever.

To fight Aldred, Lincoln works to create a different kind of marriage—an Alliance of the lesser thrax houses against Acca. Sadly, just as Lincoln starts to makes some progress, the nobles who’ve joined his Alliance begin to vanish. Is Aldred behind the disappearances, or is someone else vying for power? When Lincoln discovers the truth, it upends his entire world, threatening his future with Myla in ways no one could ever have imagined.
