This is sort of a post in two parts.
One, my friend Rachel of Hamlette's Soliloquy is now a published author!
She was 1 of 5 winners to a contest for Sleeping Beauty retellings called Five Magic Spindles, and it's no wonder she won because she wrote a western! Who would ever think to do that other than her?! Which, naturally, I am uber excited to read because I love westerns and I cannot even fathom how a western Sleeping Beauty would be told. So, yay, and congratulations to Rachel. I'm so happy for her!
Support her by buying Five Magic Spindles on Amazon Kindle HERE or a physical paperback HERE!
You can also like her author's Facebook page HERE and don't forget to mark Five Magic Spindles as to-read on your Goodreads account HERE!
Two, she is hosting a giveaway for the book's release! Go HERE for the giveaway!
She's giving away 5 handmade bookmarks that she created for each of the 5 stories. I encourage you to head on over to her blog to participate, but also to give the novella collection a try, especially if you love fairy tales.
And because I'm most excited over her story release, here's a picture of the bookmark she made. Isn't it gorgeous!?
It's always exciting to know someone when they're experiencing something so life-altering. You might not think it life-altering, but to be published is a dream for all writers. Very few attain it via the mainstream method, but here Rachel is, with her story in black and white, having won a writer's contest. That's pretty incredible.
I can guarantee everyone a review of the Five Magic Spindles as soon as I get a chance to read it! ❤
