It’s time to officially reveal Book 9 in the Timeless Fairy Tales series: The Frog Prince! The story will follow Prince Lucien–crown prince of Loire and Severin’s half-brother–and a neat-nut maid named Ariane as they attend the Summit meeting and dodge two rogue mages who are out to kill Lucien.
It was really tough keeping this story under-wraps for as long as I did–I actually foreshadowed it way back in Beauty and the Beast when Angelique threatens to turn Lucien into a toad! It’s a story that took a lot of effort to write, because it brings back so many characters from other books. (Severin, Elle, Rumpelstiltskin, Gemma, Dylan, Callan, Gabrielle, Steffen, and Elise just to name a few!) Actually, this is the FIRST BOOK in the Timeless Fairy Tale series that technically isn’t a standalone! Since so much of the story wraps around the series’ current events, if you really want to enjoy it you need to read the other books first. (Believe me, it will pay off in the end!)
I’m looking at a late October/early November release date, so it won’t be too long until you have a new book to sink your teeth into!
On that happy note, I also wanted to display some awesome artwork sent to me by two lovely Champions!
Up first we have a beautiful image of Dylan from The Little Selkie which is taken from my FAVORITE SCENE in the whole book–when she’s facing the giant wave caused by the sea witch! The wonderful Cami John made this image–and wow did she nail the water and sunlight! (The foam at the top of the wave is especially amazing.)
Jess Wurms–you might remember her from some previous pieces–created another lovely drawing–this one of Kit from The Luckless, my A. M. Sohma series! I really have to tip my hat to Jess on this one–she remembered Kit’s obnoxious face tattoo! (It’s particularly impressive given that I purposely don’t have the cover artist include it on the covers, but Jess is really amazing at adding small details like that.)
Thank you to both Cami and Jess for letting me show off their work! I’m really honored that you two enjoyed my stories enough to use your talents to make some amazing artwork!
That’s all for today, Champions! Thank you for reading, and let me know if you guessed that Lucien was going to be the Frog Prince!
