Princess Penny Published

My second book, The Plight and Plot of Princess Penny came out on February 22, which was also the anniversary of the Miracle on Ice in 1980. (But I swear, I did not plan that.)

Penny is an original fairy tale in which a teenage princess hires the witch from The Frog Prince and Beauty & the Beast (I gave the same witch both those gigs.) to get revenge on a Mean Girl at school.

I’ll post reviews as they come in, but for now the only link is the Amazon™/Kindle™ exclusive page.


8: The Untold Story is a Critical Success

The first TaleSpins book was published back in November of 2010. It’s titled: 8: The Previously Untold Story of the Previously Unknown 8th Dwarf. Long title, I know, but that was for effect.

With 70 ratings and 55 reviews on goodreads, 8 has an average rating of 4.34 out of 5 stars.

The eBook is available for Kindle here and for Nook here.


The Launch Post

I have been told (many times) that if I want to sell books and gain a following as an author, I’ve gotta blog.

So here it is . . . at long last.

TaleSpins™ is a branded book collection I’ve created that focuses on twisted fairy tales: retellings, updates, alternative POV, and even original, modern-spun stories from the Grimmish realm.

There are two TaleSpins titles so far: 8: The Previously Untold Story of the Previously Unknown 8th Dwarf (approx 2,200 words) and The Plight and Plot of Princess Penny (approx 7,200 words). They are both written in verse (There’s a pretty cool reason for that in The Backstory.) and currently available in eBook format only. I am, however, looking into traditional print publishing as well.

How many more are to come? As many as people seem to like, but at least one more for certain (to make a set of three. Three is a good number for a set for books.)
