Red Riding Hood and the Lone Wolfe

Red Riding Hood and the Lone Wolfe

What began as my first official entry in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month www.Nanowrimo.org) has culminated in the second book in The Enchanted Series, Red Riding Hood and the Lone Wolfe.

Red Riding Hood and the Lone Wolfe

Though I’ve written numerous books in NaNo fashion (50K in 30 days), last year I officially signed up and completed 57K words in November, 2016. Further writing in December capped the word count at 82K. Revisions from July-October cleaned up my lightning speed first draft.

Red Riding Hood and the Lone Wolfe is now available for purchase

In the second book in The Enchanted Series, Cheryl Sterling once again follows a commoner in pursuit of a better future and a royal fighting for his place.

After both strike, her desperation climbs. When the handsome, newly crowned King lands at her feet, she sees a clear path ahead. Using charm and a little magic, she inflames his desire.

Oliver Wolfe has lived with the secret of his werewolf blood for years. When he returns home from the exile his father imposed, he seizes the opportunity to restore the neglected realm and make a difference. While sweet Rosie eases his nights, a missing treasury and his subjects’ unrest hamper his plans. Then his right to the throne is challenged. With his future dependent on an unreliable witness, and his trial set the night of a full moon, can he trust Rosewyn with his secret?

With the fate of the man she loves weighing on her, Rosewyn must test the limits of the power buried within her. Is it strong enough to break his ancient curse, or will she lose everything?

Red Riding Hood and the Lone Wolfe is an adult fantasy loosely based on enchanting fairy tales. Strong heroines and sexy heroes battle outside forces that threaten their love story.

Marked for death by her stepmother’s manic jealousy, Princess Snow White of Enchanted narrowly escapes the huntsman’s ax.Click To Tweet Plunged into a treacherous blizzard, she stumbles across a cottage deep in the forest. But the owners, seven dwarfs and their adopted (and cute) human brother, cannot offer Snow refuge for long.

Lex Sands, always out of place within his family, has his world turned upside down when a woman with skin as white as snow and hair as black as coal—and a curve or two—breaks into his house. Suddenly, he’s responsible for her safety. With nature against them and time running out, can he prove his worth to his family, and, more importantly, to Snow White?

Snow White and the Eighth Dwarf is an adult fantasy loosely based on enchanting fairy tales. Strong heroines and sexy heroes battle outside forces that threaten their love story.

In celebrating my Pinterest anniversary, I look at the steps I've made to increase my Pinterest followers.

Pinterest anniversary and report card

Today is my Pinterest anniversary. Not the day I signed up. That’s lost to history. Instead, today marks the anniversary of my last day of Summer Tannhauser’s Pinterest Power FREE 5 Day course.

On this day one year ago, I had a whopping 73 Pinterest followers. On April 15, 2017, when I wrote a Pinterest post as part of the AtoZ Challenge, the count had increased to 1,241. Today, on my Pinterest anniversary, I have 2,227 Pinterest followers.

I’ve detailed what I learned on my April post, but I’d like to look back at my original notes and gauge my progress. Did what I learned translate into what I did?
