Summer Beach Read Season is here!

Welcome Readers!

With the rhododendrons  in full bloom and warmer weather here to stay, I feel like I’m coming to life again. It’s been a long winter season and I can’t wait to hit the beach. I’ll be headed up to Maine in a few weeks (with kayak in tow) for a sisterly visit and a bit of respite from the daily to-do’s. No doubt I’ll be in need of a good book to take with me.

Leave a recommendation in the comment section below and you’ll be in the running to win a signed print copy of LOST BOYS, the second novella in the SAVAGE CINDERELLA Novella Series before it’s available to purchase!

(A name will be randomly drawn by Contest ends June 15th at midnight.)

Good luck!

LOST BOYS (A Savage Cinderella Novella-#2)

Justin’s friend Cody has disappeared, and Brinn is determined to find out why. Despite an escalation in the tensions between them over Cody and Brinn’s complicated friendship, Justin agrees to join her on a journey that leads to the mysterious jungles of Colombia, where whispers of human trafficking bring them face to face with an old enemy.

Brinn and Justin join forces with friends to do the unthinkable—enter the dangerous jungle on a rescue mission, sparking a battle for the lives of nine young boys and a fight for their own survival. Brinn’s haunted past rears its ugly head as she is forced to once again take on a brutal killer. But in risking her life to save her friend, will she lose the one man who has sacrificed everything for her?

Follow Brinn, Justin, Cody, and a cast of new characters through a series of novellas (30-40k word short novels). Each story will bring a new adventure, another crime to solve, and more danger for Brinn and company as they delve into the world of human trafficking and beyond.



And speaking of sisters, we have several new additions to our Glass Slipper Sisters group and a brand new website. The Glass Slipper Sisters welcomes Marie Higgins, MJ Summers, Roxanne Snopek, Allie Burton, Jean Joachim, Jina Bacarr, Nicole Zoltack, Caroline Lee, Kelly McClymer, and Sela Carsen! The GSS came about in 2015 when Stacy Juba (our fearless leader), and several other authors got together and created the Cinderella Treasure Trove, a compilation of excerpts from our Cinderella and rags-to-riches-themed stories. We added some fun party ideas and recipes and continue to offer it for free so readers can get a taste of what we write and maybe find some new favorite authors. Since our inception we’ve had Facebook parties and giveaways and hundreds of avid readers have joined our FB group. If you love fairy tales, romance, and Disney fun, feel free to pop over and make a request to join our group. Recently, we’ve started Magical Mondays, where each of us takes over the group for a day, hangs out to interact with readers, and offers a giveaway or two. Tiara Thursdays is for members to share fun memes, games, or anything fairy tale/Disney related. And then there’s Fairy Tale Fridays, when our authors can post about their books, new releases, and what’s coming in our fairy tale world! If you’d like to find out more about us and our books pop over and browse our new website and feel free to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
