Whew, it's been a long year and half, but now my book baby is almost here! Cinderwild will be released in a couple of weeks, and I'm so excited to share this book with y'all.
Here's why I love it: Fairy tales, but with a twist!!! Cinderwild is the story of Cinderella's godmother, Marina, a powerful witch living during the Thirty Years War. For those of you who haven't had history class in a while, this period was rife with change in Alsace, an eastern region of France which has officially passed over centuries between France and Germany but during the early 1600s mostly belonged to itself. Catholics and Protestants were fighting over who would control God, or at least the ways people approached God. And meanwhile women were being burned at the stake from Scotland down through Spain.
Just a note for those of you who have been around for a while: this book is spicy. If you're not down with getting down, then this is not the book for you.
I hope most of you will be curled up with this book over Christmas, and if not, reading something else you will love. Happy Holidays !
