Cover Reveal - Three Sleeping Beauties!

Here it is, folks, the day you've all been waiting for. The day that I FINALLY have Sew, It's a Quest on Smashwords - AND PERMANENTLY FREE!!! Oh, isn't that awesome?

Just click over here to pick up your very own, very free copy of Sew - in any file format you'd like!! No longer kindle exclusive here! 

(Am I going to move the rest of my books over to Smashwords? Probably not. I like my KDP Select. But KDP Select wasn't letting me make Sew Permafree.)

Anywho. Click over there, get your free copy, and we can throw a party, yes?

Wait, what's that you're saying? You didn't come here to pick up a free copy of Sew? 

(Seriously, Kendra, you only just put it on a free promotion. Everyone and their DOG ought to have a copy by now.)

Okay, fine, I admit it. I'm being my own stubborn self again. Yes, I know, I know, you're here for a cover reveal. 

I am properly proud of this cover, as I built it all by myself, even drawing that cat and wheel, with a bit of advice from Alea Harper. I tell you what, finding a proper font for the series title and my author name was DIFFICULT. I eventually ended up playing with effects on a font, and I'm quite in love with what I have now. 

About the Book
Everyone knows that Sleeping Beauty's curse is triggered when she pricks her finger on a spindle and that she is awakened by true love's kiss ... but what happens when the wicked fairy decides to switch things up?

Edmund didn't mean to put Auralea to sleep, but now it's up to him and the famous Puss in Boots to figure out how, exactly, a spinning wheel is supposed to awaken her.

(You guys all already know who I am, so I'm skipping my author info)

This is the only cover that I'm showing off that I didn't design, but I won't hesitate to admit that this is probably the most gorgeous in the line-up. As it's the only one that will be slapped onto an actual physical book, I'm okay with that.

Oh, fun fact here - Morgan almost used the same font for her author name as I DID use for the title on Poison Kiss - Blackadder. I had to use the font by default because it's what's on CinderEddy's cover, so I wasn't copying her. Just ... fun fact. 

About the Book
“I, Calandra, of the Wingans, do bestow upon you, the Princess of Hanover, a gift. You have been given long life. I cannot interfere with that, but when you are sixteen years of age, you will prick your finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and fall into an everlasting sleep.” She stepped closer so that she could be heard only by Liesel and her parents. “Then you will at last see the truth. Be wary. Be wise. Your fate rests upon yourself.”

On her sixteenth birthday, Princess Liesel Rosanna falls victim to a sleeping curse—but wakens in another world, a prisoner of war. As the bait in a trap for her fiancĂ©, the crown prince of Hanover, Liesel longs to escape back to the fairy tale world. The world where she is only wanting a true love’s kiss to set everything to rights.

As situations quickly grow dire, Liesel must choose which story to live, which life is real. The fate of her country rests on her decision.

About the Author
Morgan Elizabeth Huneke is a homeschool graduate who lives in Georgia. She has enjoyed creating characters and writing stories since early childhood. Books have always been a big part of her life, never more so than when working at the local library. Her other interests include reading, playing and teaching piano and violin, and politics. She is the author of Across the Stars and The Experiment as well as the Time Captives fantasy trilogy.

You can connect with Morgan on her website, blog, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Now this cover ... this cover's headache was more than just the fonts. I actually had my fonts early on. However, I went through two other designs before I finally went with this - a compromise of the two. I'm proud of it, too, though, and proud of my mother for finally getting a book of her own out. Sure, she helped me with Saffron's Big Plan and Tears, Frogs, and Laughter (which I'll be updating with her real name in the near future), but this book is all her. Except for the editing. 

Hang on to your socks, folks, and get ready for a sweet little bedtime story. (And, yes, I AM going to get her to do an audio version soonishly, because that's how she REALLY shines.)

It's sequel - Cynthia Ellen, won't be long in following, so stay tuned for that, too.

About the Book
Once upon a time, way out west...
Back when they were young'uns, Fleur Guardstone proposed to Rosette Thornbriar with a cigar band ring. However, not long after, she disappeared back into the forest and hadn't been heard from since. However, when Fleur hears reports of smoke coming from that woods, he's determined to find out if it is, indeed, his dear Rosette. If he can get past all of the briars.

About the Author
Rachel Roden is a natural story teller, capable of weaving the most hilarious of fairy tales. She fell in love with the Lone Ranger in her teens, but ended up with a basketball referee instead. Together, she and the Ref homeschool their four children in the Piney Woods of East Texas, as well as any other odd kid who ends up in their house. She might also be the sole human who still uses math after college.

Now, I'm going to go set up a treasure hunt for church tonight. And go to work.
