Five Magic Spindles Book Announcement + Giveaway!!

This is sort of a post in two parts.

One, my friend Rachel of Hamlette's Soliloquy is now a published author!

She was 1 of 5 winners to a contest for Sleeping Beauty retellings called Five Magic Spindles, and it's no wonder she won because she wrote a western! Who would ever think to do that other than her?! Which, naturally, I am uber excited to read because I love westerns and I cannot even fathom how a western Sleeping Beauty would be told. So, yay, and congratulations to Rachel. I'm so happy for her!

Support her by buying Five Magic Spindles on Amazon Kindle HERE or a physical paperback HERE!

You can also like her author's Facebook page HERE and don't forget to mark Five Magic Spindles as to-read on your Goodreads account HERE!

Two, she is hosting a giveaway for the book's release! Go HERE for the giveaway!

She's giving away 5 handmade bookmarks that she created for each of the 5 stories. I encourage you to head on over to her blog to participate, but also to give the novella collection a try, especially if you love fairy tales.

And because I'm most excited over her story release, here's a picture of the bookmark she made. Isn't it gorgeous!?

It's always exciting to know someone when they're experiencing something so life-altering. You might not think it life-altering, but to be published is a dream for all writers. Very few attain it via the mainstream method, but here Rachel is, with her story in black and white, having won a writer's contest. That's pretty incredible.

I can guarantee everyone a review of the Five Magic Spindles as soon as I get a chance to read it!

  1. It is indeed life-altering! It is truly a dream coming true, and that is always such a blessing.

    And I'm chuckling over you saying that who but I would come up with the idea of rewriting a fairy tale as a western. I've had that idea for years, actually, and had thought up ways to rewrite both "Little Red Riding Hood" and "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" as westerns before this contest came along. I'm now working on a first draft of a western Red Riding Hood because this was such fun to write!

    Looking forward to hearing what you think of the whole book :-)

  2. How lovely! Congrats to your friend! I totally need to get a hold of that book! It looks stunning and all kinds of perfect. :D :D


Thank you for your kind comments, which I adore!
