Newsletter subscribers will already know all about this, BUT WHEN DID I EVER HESITATE TO REPEAT MYSELF?
I’M RELEASING A NEW BOOK!!!!
As some of you already know, I am collaborating with eleven other fairy tale authors in an exciting series called A VILLAIN’S EVER AFTER: new twists on classic fairy tales.
~ Here’s the official series blurb! ~
What if the Enchantress fell in love with the Beast?
Or the Sea Witch wasn’t so evil?
Suppose the sorcerer won the swan princess’s heart?
“A Villain’s Ever After” will take you to places where wishes really do come true . . . from a certain point of view. Expect the unexpected as we fall in love with the villains who might not be the “bad guy” after all.
Featuring twelve short novels full of magic, romance, and adventure, you’ll see villains in a whole new light.Who said villains can’t have happily-ever-afters?
My contribution to this collaboration is a retelling of The Steadfast Tin Soldier, and I can’t wait for you to read it!
And now . . . at long last . . . I can finally reveal the cover!
Just a bit more…
AND HERE WE GO!
*SQUEALING* ISN’T IT PRETTY???? WE LOVES IT, PRECIOUS. YES, WE DO. And just LOOK at the little goblin on the left hand side peeking out from behind the curtain. He’s so cute.
While I go in the corner and scream, why don’t you go ahead and read the back blurb again?
~ THE SYNOPSIS ~
Grik the goblin spends his days as a janitor cleaning the Metropolitan Dance Hall, drawn to the Elvish world and tired of the darkness of his underground home. He secretly pines for the ballet company’s lead dancer, Rosanna, but his own ugliness and shyness stands in the way of confessing his love.
When a handsome soldier named Paul appears on the scene to make a bid for Rosanna’s affections, Grik’s jealousy bubbles over and he commits the unthinkable, plunging all of them into a river and down into the depths of the earth.
Determined to redeem himself, Grik leads Rosanna and Paul through the place he calls home: but even a goblin can’t be prepared for everything that is found underground. Trapped in the dark, nightmares both within and without rise to the surface, threatening to destroy them all.
A magical and heartfelt retelling of The Steadfast Tin Soldier about finding your worth.
