Snow White and the Eighth Dwarf
I am proud to announce the publication of my thirteenth (13th) book, the first in the Enchanted series: Snow White and the Eighth Dwarf.
Marked for death by her stepmother’s manic jealousy, Princess Snow White of Enchanted narrowly escapes the huntsman’s ax. 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.
Snow, who’s never done anything more arduous than princessing, must brave grueling weather, cross two kingdoms, and reach her only living relative ahead of the Evil Queen’s army. If Snow fails, she loses more than her throne . . .
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?
Playing “What if?” leads to a novel
Snow White and the Eighth Dwarf was born from a writer’s favorite game—”what if?” What if there had been an eighth dwarf? If he was human, would the story change? What were his roots? How is he different (besides the obvious) in his family dynamics? And how does that shape him as a man and potential lover to Snow White?
How is Snow White different than any other version? Can she change throughout the story?
How is the Evil Queen not so evil? To tell the truth, I had a lot of fun writing Sabine. Villains are so complex, and she has more than her share of complexities.
Other characters who were fun to write were Ethyl and Azalea, twin sisters who are witches and who were enslaved by the Evil Queen as Mirror, Mirror. They have an interesting tale, which will be woven throughout the planned five books of the Enchanted series. They are my non-narrators, the common denominator in the series. I love their devotion to each other and their sense of humor.
The second book in the series, Red Riding Hood and the Very Bad Wolfe will be released in August. It was written in 2016’s NaNoWriMo, but the first draft is a bag of hot mess. I’d best get to the editing desk!
I hope you enjoy Snow White and the Eighth Dwarf. Please leave a review if you did (or didn’t).
