Greetings, Champions! I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I’m here today to share some fun news: Cinderella and the Colonel is getting an update!
In addition to the beautiful, fantastic new cover, Cinderella & the Colonel received an edit! The majority of the changes were all stylistic/grammar/punctuation fixes, so in general the biggest change should be that the story will read more smoothly but you won’t be able to exactly pinpoint why. However, there is one tiny new slice of a scene that lets you see dear Fred’s perspective earlier in the book.
The new cover isn’t showing up on C&C‘s Amazon page, but when I checked the sample it’s the cover that’s on there, so if you get the edited version it should come with the new cover.
If you want the cleaned-up version, you’ll need to contact Amazon! Although I’m the author I have no control over pushing the updates onto Kindle devices, so go to Amazon Help –specifically digital services–and request the newer version. (Historically, other Champions have mentioned the fastest method is to contact help via phone or instant messenger. Email takes longer.)
The timing is not the greatest as we are smack dab in the middle of Sleeping Beauty frenzy, but since I’ve been working on this edit for several months, and Myrrhlynn made the new cover way back in summer, I decided to give into my impulse and release it now!
Up next, we have some truly beautiful fanart, done by our very own Britta Vana!
Her fantastic picture is of Raven Wishmore from Life Reader! She did a fabulous job–particularly with the differences in Raven/Ray-Ray’s hair! For those of you who are curious, Britta said she used FireAlpaca to make it. Thanks, Britta, for using your beautiful talent! 😀
Alright, that’s it for today, Champions. Good luck getting the newest version of Cinderella!
I like the fanart of Raven/Rachel 🙂 Good job, Britta Vana!
Has anyone tried getting the update yet? I followed the digital services link on the help page but couldn’t find any additional links that would get me to the update or even to a phone number or email address to ask questions. Any help would be much appreciated!

How far are we on the last extra? Soon, Please? And do we have any idea around about when the Snow Queen short stories will come out? I am conflicted, I am dying for the last of King Arthur, but the Snow Queen…
You’ve probably seen the new posts and such since I’m a few days behind answering comments, but Snowflakes will launch January 14, the final extra for Sleeping Beauty is now out, and next week I’m going to begin writing King Arthurs! Woohoo! 😀
I like the new cover! 🙂
Question, how can we tell if we get the new version or not?
Gah, Sorry this comment slipped through my filter!
For Cinderella you’ll know you have the new version because of the new cover! Otherwise, the easy-to-tell way is when you contact Amazon to have them push the new version on to your device, it will automatically load to the very front of your Kindle Library when you log on. (If you bought Cinderella before Christmas, then you for certain have the old version!)
