I’m so excited! My book “Once…” is finally ready for the world to read. I had hoped to get it done earlier — like immediately after “Eens…” was published — but I had to learn a lot about marketing and publishing to do this right.

Here are the details:

Damsels in distress, curses, echoes of faery tales and tragic love affairs swirl together in sixteen stories found in a dragon’s lair by a curious half-fae.

Unexpected changes to reality causes more than one damsel to turn into a strong, independent woman who takes charge of her own life.

A collection of short stories about Faerie and the fae that live in the human realm. A few of the stories had won competitions and all of them had enchanted readers.

Learn their secrets and enter the realm of the fae…

The above two links are UBLs.

What are UBLs? According to Draft2Digital/Books2Read:

Universal Book Link (UBL)

UBLs give you one link that leads to every online retailer selling your book.

And when your readers click on that link, they’re shown a list of everywhere your book appears online, so that they can choose the retailer or eReader that works best for them

One link. Every bookstore online.

Awesome. Now for the excerpt from “Once…”:

Mortals cannot perceive the veil unless they are invited to – or extremely gifted. For centuries, Man and Fae have been kept apart, for nothing good ever comes from them mixing. The collection of The Adventures of Saphira the Faery Dog is proof of this.

Still, there are magical creatures that side neither with Man nor Fae.

Dragons are such creatures. They hold the knowledge of both worlds. Some even collect it in the written word, keeping it safe in their lairs.

An inquisitive half-fae once broke into the lair of a dragon known to hoard books. The knowledge she found was too much to keep to herself…

Here are a few tales, myths and legends from Faerie. Some may sound remarkably similar to legends held by mortals, while others are…  well… as otherworldly as the fae themselves.

I posted a promotional tweet earlier:

I also made a couple of twitter images with quotes from the book that will work well with the data in the above tweet:

So awesome! (I know, too much caffeine.)
