I'm getting close to releasing book 1 in my new fairy tale series. The heroines are more independent than the Disney versions. Book 1 is Cinderella who, with her prince, then intersect with Snow White in book 2 in an entwined plot. If you'd like to take a look and offer feedback, just let me know if you prefer EPUB, MOBI, or PDF. They're about 12,000 words long. A novelette smile.

Finally! Amazon published book 1 in my Cinderella Fairy Tale series. I'd love your thoughts on it! Book 2, on Snow White, was already live. Book 3, on Beauty, should be going live today. My release schedule has been greatly ramped up smile.

And yes, I know I spelled "commemorate" wrong in the description. It's been part of why I've been checking the listing hourly to get access to it, to edit it. So far I don't have that edit button yet since it's still in the initial load period.

What are you guys working on today?

I was just about to publish book 3 in my Cinderella series, called "Beauty", when I received in the mail a review copy of a book all about the variations around the world of animal brides and grooms. It seemed like fate. I'm going to read this to learn even more about the historical basis of the classic fairy tale and then do one final polishing round on my "Beauty". My aim is to publish it tomorrow. Have a good night, everyone!

I struggle with Beauty for many reasons, including 1) I don't like that he has to "turn handsome" in the end for a happy ending, and 2) I don't like that she often endures abuse by him in the hopes he'll somehow change (which, given my stance on battered women, upsets me).

I'm doing one final read-through of my Beauty And The Beast story and then it goes live! The original French tale had serious challenges. Never mind Disney. Yes, I loved the library. But I greatly disliked the way the father allowed his young daughter to be wholly given to a stranger's control - a stranger known for his violent temper. It was the father's responsibility to keep her safe. I also greatly disliked the message of 'just be patient with a violent man - he'll become your prince charming if you stick around long enough.' It's taken me quite a lot of research and thought to develop a version which conveys the message I wish. What are you working on today?
