SNOW FALLING - Adult Fantasy/Fairy Tale Retelling 

When Queen Anastasia’s mirror is smashed to bits by one of Snow White’s temper tantrums, she believes it to be just another blow in her long-standing feud with the girl. In power struggles among royals, a bit of broken glass is the least of anyone’s problems. When the mirror is replaced, however, Anastasia discovers her new mirror has powers – powers that could be the key to success in a palace that had been unwelcoming to the peasant queen up until now.

Anastasia uses the powerful new mirror to spy on her servants and subjects and even other realms. She uses her knowledge to gain a reputation for knowing all, for seeing all. Then one day, she sees a horrific vision in the mirror: Her husband dead, her children in chains, and Snow White leading a rebel army against her homeland.

Obsession takes over as Anastasia tries to prevent this vision from coming true, but as her husband passes away and Snow White goes missing, she realizes the vision is coming true all around her. Anastasia must resort to drastic measures – even utilizing a centuries-old dark secret from a neighboring kingdom – to keep herself, her children, and her kingdom safe.

ELECTRO SWING AND OTHER THINGS THAT MADE ME FALL IN LOVE - YA Dieselpunk Romance

Weeks after they meet, however, Pearl Harbor is attacked. Like so many young men in America, Alton enlists and is sent to the south Pacific, leaving Sadie behind without her dance partner and without anyone who believes in her engineering capabilities. 

 

While pursuing a not-very-ladylike career in robotics and nuclear engineering, Sadie meets Royston Pennyshire, an adorable Brit who works for her father and is looking for a serious relationship. Sadie has no reason to keep him at arm’s length – no reason except that her heart isn’t ready to move on just yet.

 

Sadie has all but given up on her happily ever after with Alton when he returns, presenting her with a difficult choice: return to the broken soldier who held a place in her heart for so long or stay with the steadfast scientist who put her back together when she was falling apart.
