The Gingerbread Queen is Coming!
A Brand New Queen 👑
Hello, reader friends!
It's been a while. Life has been full of pitfalls and trials, but I am still here, poking away at the keyboard and making up stories. And I have some exciting news to share!
On November 15, 2022, I'll be launching a new novella for you on the Kindle Vella platform! If you're not familiar with Vella, it's a place where authors release stories in episode form (think of old Charles Dickens writing weekly episodes for the newspaper). The first couple chapters are free to read, and then there's a token system to get the next episodes (don't worry, it's easy!). I'll be posting 2 new chapters a week--just in time for winter's cozy reading season.
Here's a bit about The Gingerbread Queen:
Hansel and Gretel's tale continues...
Thirteen years after fleeing the witch’s gingerbread cottage, Gretel must return to hide from townsfolk who accuse her of being the evil crone’s successor. When the walls start to crumble, Gretel seeks the aid of handsome baker Lukas, the only one who can repair the damage before winter—and the only one who’s ever tempted her heart.
Within the enchanted forest, Gretel’s innate powers ignite, as does the spark between her and Lukas. Is it truly her fate to become the next cruel witch queen of the forest—and to lose any chance of a happily-ever-after with Lukas?
(Also, there's a bad duck, a lake full of tricksy nixes, and a magical mirror!)
I'm so excited to share this new story. I hope you'll give Vella a try--if you haven't already. It's fun! Check back here 11/15 for a link straight to the story.
