Fantastic Fairytales

I don’t offer reduced sale prices on my books very often.

But I’ve just been invited into a group promotion with the theme of fairytales and fairytale retellings. It’s a perfect fit for my novel Troll-magic, which is a retelling of East of the Sun and West of the Moon.

And when I saw that Anthea Sharp (who I admire) has two of her books in the promotion…well it became irresistible!

For 3 days—April 27, April 28, and April 29Troll-magic will be on sale for 99 cents. Even better, it keeps company with 28 other fairytale retellings that are also on sale.

After scoping out the Look Insides, I realized that I want to purchase a few of the titles for my own reading pleasure. 😀

Here’s the link for the page showing all 29 books: Fantastic Fairytales.

But before you click over, here’s a quick preview of some of the titles that especially caught my eye.
