12/17 Update: I drew 2 numbers from a virtual hat, and the winners of the giveaway are Joan and Paul! Congrats! I will be shipping your books out today. And a big thank you to everyone who entered and/or shared about the book on your blogs—it means a lot to me. 🙂
Some of you might remember this post from last year, where I shared a fanfiction I wrote about the Nutcracker story. Your feedback was very encouraging! And I thought…maybe this story isn’t so bad. 😉
This summer, I found an amazing artist who was excited to illustrate the story. I also gave it a brand new title to better distinguish it from the wealth of Nutcracker stories: Drosselmeyer’s Dream. With some heavy editing to iron out the rough edges, I finally published it on Amazon!
Synopsis from my author website:
Young Drosselmeyer arrives at his uncle’s Christmas Party with a gift for his cousin Clara: a beautiful nutcracker. Little does he know that trapped inside is a mysterious prince, who longs to return to his kingdom and face his arch-nemesis, the North King. When Clara disappears, Drosselmeyer sets off to rescue her, but soon he is caught up in the Nutcracker’s quest to save his homeland and break the curse.
Inspired by Tchaikovsky’s ballet, Drosselmeyer’s Dream is a Nutcracker retelling for fans of medieval fantasy and old-fashioned fairy tales.
