A Great Review for Cinders & Ash

03_Cinders-and-AshI guess you could say I’ve been asleep at the wheel (or busy in my writing cave). I totally missed this AWESOME review of Cinders & Ash over at the Big Al’s Books and Pals blog.

Cinders & Ash is double the length of Ms. Bloom’s tales so far. The result is a well told story with well-defined characters and a plot of conspiracy against the throne.” (Read More)

Needless to say, I was quite happy with the review. So glad this book was enjoyed. It was a real labor of love (as it took three times as long to write as the other ones; I had a couple of false starts/stops because I deviated from the traditional tale so much).

If you haven’t read Cinders & Ash, it’s available as FREE  read for Kindle Unlimited Subscribers.  Do check it out.

I’ll try to pop my head out of the writing cave a little more often. I’m trying to finish up the last 5,000 words or so of my Sleeping Beauty tale. I’ve got a tentative release date of March for it. I’ll keep you posted.

May your love always be in bloom

Cinders & Ash Available Today! (And at a Discount)

03_Cinders-and-AshThe newest book in the Passion-Filled Fairy Tale series launched today on Amazon. Cinders & Ash: A Cinderella Story is available now.  I’m so excited, as the book was a real fun one to write, and took a bit more imagination to add passion to, because in the original tale, our couple doesn’t meet until the night of the prince’s ball.

For the first week it’s out, the book will sell for $2.99. This is a dollar discount, as the normal selling price will be $3.99. This book is longer than the previous two books, as it’s a full-length novel. Amazon’s ebook calculation tool clocks it at 210 pages, but the paper back is actually 230 pages. So, $2.99 is a great price for those who want to grab it early.

I made an effort to get the paperback out at the same time as the ebook, for anyone who still loves paper.

Anyway, I really hope you enjoy this imaginative retelling of the fairy tale. Readers who received Advance Review Copies have already posted some reviews on Goodreads, and it’s averaging 4.3 stars at the moment.

I will be posting a couple more bits of fun news later this month. I didn’t post much in November because I was trying National Novel Writing Month (where you attempt to write 50,000 words in one month). So, that was a busy time. But I’m psyched about Cinders & Ash and the remainder of December. Here’s the Cinders & Ash book description:

Ella would like nothing more than to leave her wicked stepmother and spoiled stepsisters behind. Only, she needs money to do so. The young lass secretly works for a local shopkeeper to earn cash, until her stepmother, Lady Kenna, finds out. Lady Kenna gets her stepdaughter fired, beats her, and takes all the cash the girl has earned thus far. Ella hears of a secret job at the castle providing companionship to a visiting relative of the royal family. Desperate to get away from her stepfamily, Ella consents.

Ash is a prince confined to a castle. The queen is convinced magic fairies are real and are out to do her son harm. That doesn’t stop the young prince from having ladies delivered for his pleasure. When a beautiful maiden is brought to him one evening, he’s completely intrigued: by her beauty, by her demeanor and by the fact that she’ll only give her name as Cinders.
In this steamy retelling of the Cinderella story, Cinders & Ash find love, romance and a fairy tale happy ending.

Revamped Covers for Passion-Filled Fairy Tales

Bonjour! Hope you’ve had a great weekend. It’s a new month, so I thought I’d start it off by introducing the new covers (one new, and two revamped, actually) for my Passion-Filled Fairy Tales series.

I designed the original covers myself and perhaps that was to my detriment.  I asked a cover artist what she thought and if she thought she’d be able to design something that might work better. The artist actually liked the original models and thought just a bit of spice might improve the covers. So, I’ve revamped the covers of the first two books in the series, and got covers for books three and four and that fit in line with it.

I thought I’d introduce folks today to the two revamped covers, as well as the cover and title for Book 3 in the Passion-Filled Fairy Tales series, which is Cinders & Ash: A Cinderella Story.
