Unicorn Keep One Year Anniversary

Image
Unicorn Keep is having its one year anniversary this month. Wow! My unicorn story has been out for one year. Hard to believe. Seems like it was only a couple of months ago I sat down determined to write a story featuring unicorns, but having no idea what the story would be. Thankfully, Jiline and Herrick stepped forward almost immediately to start telling me their stories.

To celebrate the one year anniversary I have temporarily lowered the cost of Unicorn Keep to $.99 for the ebook. Hurry over and grab your copy from your favorite ebook retailer before the price goes back to normal.

Jiline of Ainsley is dismayed when her best friend is selected by the mages to become a unicorn keeper at the Keep, an isolated mountain fortress. Especially since Madelen is in love and engaged to the richest boy in the village. Jiline on the other hand has no prospects of marriage or a trade in their small village. So, she comes up with a plan to take Madelen’s place at the Keep and hopefully flunk …

Fairy Tale Fortnight

I adore fairy tale retellings in film. There is something about the creative process the writers, producers, director, and actors go through to bring about a new version of the fairy tale. Doesn't matter if it is a completely modern retake or something in the time period of fairy tales. Children/Family or Adult. Love them all.

The funnest part of retellings for me is seeing what they kept the same and what they twisted around to fit the "new" story.



 Ever After: A Cinderella Story and Tangled are pretty close to the original stories. Taking as much as they can from the fairy tales and also taking place during the medieval times the fairy tales come from.


Enchanted and Penelope are fun modern retellings of fairy tales. Penelope is probably closest to Beauty and the Beast, but also takes from other fairy tales. Enchanted includes most of the tropes of the "princess" fairy tales and puts its own unique twist for a completely new story.
