Yesterday, I got the final version of my blurb (below), my release date (September 27th), and approval for my series title, Accidental Enchantments! Here’s the blurb (with the cover for the full effect):
Have you ever wondered what happens to the other people in the fairy tale?
Things look grim for Talia and her mother. By royal proclamation, the constables and those annoying “good” fairies have taken away their livelihood by confiscating their spinning wheel. Something to do with a curse on the princess, they said.
Not every young lady has a fairy godmother rushing to her rescue.
Without the promise of an income from spinning, Talia’s prospects for marriage disappear, and she and her mother face destitution. Past caring about breaking an arbitrary and cruel law, rebellious Talia determines to build a new spinning wheel, the only one in the nation, which plays right into the evil fairy’s diabolical plan. Talia discovers that finding a happy ending requires sacrifice. But is it a sacrifice she’s willing to make?
I also got entirely too absorbed with learning just how much I don’t know about design by browsing the website for the cover artist of The Sevenfold Spell, CrocoDesigns. Um, I think I need better software. And a few classes.
And finally, over at Goodreads, enterprising user Enna Isilee (love her name) made a Goodreads entry for The Sevenfold Spell! I didn’t know you could do that! So if you want a little reminder to read it (as if haunting this blog wouldn’t be enough), you could always put it on your Goodreads bookshelf.
