Too often have I neglected the tradition of Promo Friday. Behold its resurrection at this Cauldron.
Why? I’ve got releases coming out this very year.
My f/f fantasy fairytale, Fairest has found a new home in Nine Star Press’s Once Upon a Rainbow anthology, which will be released on November 20, 2017.
Scampering hot on its heels is my Mouse Prince/Nutcracker story, Seven Tricks on November 27, 2017.
That’s not all.
At the very beginning of next year, I’ve got a second f/f fantasy fairytale appearing for the first time in print. At Her Service will be making its debut in Once Upon a Time 2 on January 15, 2018.
This time, the story is all Cinderella, my own gender bending version of this classic tale.
Cinders would much rather fondle her mistress’s bony feet than go to a ball. She finds herself whisked away, in spite of herself to a night of magic and dancing, discovering her true heart in the process.
Here’s a little unedited teaser from the beginning…
Ever since I could remember, my life revolved around my mistress. I did my desperate best to serve her, even though I wasn’t very good at it.
“Fetch me my slippers,” she’d say, waving a slender hand idly in the direction of the closet. She’d be busy reading a leather bound book she’d managed to swindle from a stuffy order of monks, or carefully going over the household accounts. My mistress would never entrust her money to any of the servants.
Eager to please, I’d open the closet. A cascade of all kinds of slippers, scarves, and gowns would come pouring out of the wardrobe, knocking me to the ground.
