Prologue for Veiled Rose available online!

So excited!!!

I just discovered that the prologue for Veiled Rose is up on Amazon! If you are curious for a sneak peak at Leo and Rose Red's story, go here.

So interesting . . . they actually changed the cover. Not drastically, but in little ways that I think really improve it. Don't get me wrong! I liked the cover the way it was very much. But I do love these changes! I love that Rose Red's face is more covered. I love that the reds are brighter and the dragon is more of a lurking menace in the background (kind of miss how bright his eyes were, but not too much). Paul, the artist, seems to have added pretty details to the mirror, which I love!

And do please notice the absolutely, eerily fantastic back cover. I just adore it! It suits the story so very well, and I love the back cover blurb too. I just can't say enough for Bethany House and their brilliant work! I do hope my story is worthy of all the effort they put into it.

Let me know what you think!

Wow, I just went looking to see if there was a new book out yet, this is just my luck :) I loved your first book, I'm about to check out the prologue, I got your first book for Christmas and fell in love. I'm super excited to see the next,


I'm excited! Love the covers and the prologue is very mysterious. Wonderful way to catch our attention from the start!!! When's it released?

Thanks, girls! :) Veiled Rose officially releases in July, though you might actually start seeing it around by mid-June. I'm super excited about it myself! I personally like this book better than Heartless (though, I will always have a soft-spot for Heartless since it was my first). This one is more mysterious . . . Hope you will enjoy it! :)

Looking forward to this! I have seven hour flights to and from Paris in the middle of the month, so maybe I can schedule "Veiled Rose" to coincide with those delicious blocks of choice reading time.

Ooooh, going to Paris? That's exciting! Touring?

Yes. I have a friend who lives in France. Three years ago she showed me around a large part of the country except Paris, and now we're going to spend a week in the city. We are staying on a house boat on the Sienne, doing one whole day at the Louvre... I'm getting so excited! And this time it's a gang. My mom, aunt, cousin, and friend are all coming too.
