Red Riding Hood and the Lone Wolfe Book Launch Announcement

I am pleased to announce the second book in my Enchanted series, Red Riding Hood and the Lone Wolfe, will be released on October fourteenth.

 

Rosewyn, village baker in the kingdom of Eastlocke, is also a witch of limited power, scraping a living for her and her grandmother. Then one day, the new king, returned from exile, lands at her feet. Soon she’s installed in the royal kitchens. Rosewyn sees the opportunity to better her family’s lives. What could be simpler than seducing a king using her charms and a little magic?

But her ambitions turns to concern when Oliver’s life and kingdom is threatened. Her witchcraft might solve his problems, but how does she tell him without confessing her lies, her secret, and the knowledge of his secret life of a werewolf?

Red Riding Hood and the Lone Wolfe picks up the Enchanted story soon after the conclusion of the first book in the series, Snow White and the Eighth Dwarf. The Miller Sisters return to the narrative, as well as Lex Sands, Snow White, and the Evil Queen.

Join Rosewyn and Oliver as they fight the differences between a King and a commoner; a woman looking to better her life, and the man overcoming his father’s shame.

An excerpt:

Rosewyn Baker stopped on the creek side path when she heard hoof beats pounding down the hill. She twisted in its direction. What fool hurried this early in the morning? And in the rain?
A huge beast galloped through the shrubs, a rider hunched over it, his hat bouncing free. Man and creature hurled toward the creek swollen from the rains. Then the horse crashed to a halt short of the bank.
The man flew over its head, flipped and landed on his back. Water erupted into the already wet air. A startled bird cried and flew away. Continue reading Red Riding Hood Book Launch Date

The Apprentice Fairy Godmother at www.cherylsterlingbooks.com

Give Harrison Ford (no, not that one) to Mom for Mother’s Day

Harrison Ford (not that one) likes his boring life. Then a fairy godmother bursts into his life, claiming he's her last assignment before she graduates.Harrison Ford (no, not that one) likes his ordinary, life. With the notoriety of his name and the responsibility of his family after his father’s death, he plays everything safe. From a boring career as an insurance actuary to a cookie-cutter Chicago suburb home, he’s as vanilla as generic ice cream. A failed marriage is his only deviation from normal.

Then Georgia, an opinionated fairy godmother with unreliable powers, installs herself in his house, claiming to grant him one wish – which she decides is a new wife. When his mother takes exception to his guest and his runaway teenage daughter lands on his doorstep, normal turns to chaos.

Georgia Rhodes has always fought for her place in her family, including following her sisters to Fairy Godmother University. She has one simple assignment to fulfill before graduating, but instead of watching over a newborn, she’s given someone more complex—a full-grown mortal man. Make his wish come true or don’t graduate, her instructor warns. It’s not easy. Deliberately left without her wand, and as a woman used to fun more than studying, Georgia must use her brains and her discovery of the internet to find Harry a wife. But her magic is on the fritz, especially when she thinks about him with another woman. In the meantime, she fights her attraction to him, knowing a cross species relationship rarely works.

The Apprentice Fairy Godmother 2.0

The Apprentice Fairy Godmother was the second book I published. I’ve written it twice. Harrison changed very little, but his first opponent was another woman. The fairy godmother in the story played a secondary role. It wasn’t until I had finished the book that I realized I’d cast the wrong woman to tangle with Harrison. With a great deal of re-writing, I transformed the book into its current form.

If you’d like to read an excerpt, go here.

Gift a copy to your mom, grandmother, adopted mother, or the woman who kissed your boo-boos and stood by your side. What could make a better present for a mother than a fairy godmother? (Plus, you know, Harrison Ford)

For those who have been waiting for “What Do You Say to a Naked Elf?” to be a “real” book, it’s now available as trade paperback on www.lulu.com.  The price is based on the number of pages, and “Elf” is long, so the price is higher than I’d like, but from now until 1-20 you can take off 20%.  Here are the details:

Enter coupon code PRICETHAW305 at checkout and receive 20% off your order. The maximum savings for this offer is $100. Sorry, but this offer is only valid in US Dollars and cannot be applied to previous orders. You can only use this code once per account, and unfortunately you can’t use this coupon in combination with other coupon codes. This great offer expires on January 20, 2012 at 11:59 PM PST, so don’t miss out! While very unlikely, we do reserve the right to change or revoke this offer at anytime, and of course we cannot offer this coupon where it is against the law to do so.

I apologize for not having it available sooner.  I thought I’d put it up in October.

On the bright side, “The Apprentice Fairy Godmother” and the sequel to “Elf”, “Robert’s Rules Undone” are also on Lulu.com and can be purchased using the same discount code.

And if you’re the person who recently bought two dozen ebooks of “Elf” for Kindle, I’d love to hear from you!
