First Line Friday – Finding Ever After

Do you love fairytales? If you do, you’re definitely going to want to get a copy of this collection of fairytale-inspired novellas that releases on Valentine’s Day. (That’s next Thursday for those of you who need a little reminder to buy your special someone a special something 😉 )

How about a Cinderalla-themed story set at the beautiful Biltmore Estate in North Carolina in 1913? Or a twist on Rapunzel set in 1920s Boston, featuring a reluctant heiress, a charming piano tuner, and a game of chess? Beauty and the Beast lends its inspiration to the story of a romance novelist who returns to the family pecan farm—and her ex-fiancé. And there’s a nod to Snow White in the final story, which includes a fake date with a handsome woodsman, seven geeks, and the world’s best apple tarts.

I can’t wait! How about you?

Finding Ever After



Between Stairs and Stardust (Pepper Basham)

Sunset and sunrise captured the magnificent country chateau best.

Entanglements (Rachel McMillan)

Once upon a time, Father Francisco told Nic Ricci that to find math in music he merely had to look to Mozart.

Twice Upon A Time (Ashley Clark)

Under no circumstances would she fall for him again.

Once Bitten (Betsy St. Amant)

If wishes were apples, she could have baked two tarts by now.
