Twice Upon A Time: Fairytale, Folklore and Myth – Reimagined and Remastered.

Twice upon a time_coverTwice upon a time_back cover

I am so thrilled to be a part of this spectacular fairytale retelling anthology. Twice Upon A Time was put together by editor and blogger Joshua Allen Mercier as a launch for his new publishing house, The Bearded Scribe. Having previously been featured on Joshua’s blog (Aversion review), I was approached earlier this year with an invitation to submit a short story for the launch. Since I’d already tackled Cinderella’s story in my YA novel, The Other Slipper, I figured I would try to come up with something darker for this. About six months later, I submitted my  wacky take on the Sleeping Beauty story, which was accepted (phew!) and now sits alongside about 40 other stories . I hope new and old readers of my work will enjoy the stories, and share your thoughts on them online.

The anticipated release date is the 23rd of December, just in time for a Christmas morning read in bed. I will post more links up in the coming week but, in the meantime, below is the book’s blurb and links to its Youtube book trailer Continue reading

Guest Post on Known To Read – “When They Were Bad – Why Fairytale Villains Do What They Do”

To celebrate her Blogoversary, I wrote a guest post for the lovely Danielle Smiley of Known to Read and it’s gone up on her blog today! It’s called “When They Were Bad – Why Fairytale Villains Do What They Do” and there is also a giveaway of The Other Slipper for anyone who hasn’t read it yet to enter, so spread the word.

Happy 1st Birthday To The Other Slipper!

Can you believe it? It’s been a year already! Thanks to everyone who has supported my dream by buying an e-copy of The Other Slipper. I’ve had positive reviews on various book review blogs, Amazon and Goodreads and I’m really grateful to all those who felt passionate enough about the story to talk about it. In recognition of this lovely anniversary, I’m looking into releasing a paperback copy pretty soon (thank God for CreateSpace) and I am currently going through all the formatting, editing, etc to get it right for printing (I now almost understand why publishers charge so much money for this!). It will be available via Amazon online stores so I will keep you guys posted. Exciting!
