Do you Love Fairy Tale Themed Books? Check Out This Fun Event, March 26-April 2

Thank you to all who entered! The winner, chosen from, is  Leanne. I am excited to participate in the Fairy Tale Giveaway Hop for three reasons. Number one, I am finishing up my work-in-progress, a romantic comedy inspired by Cinderella. Number two, my favorite TV show is Once Upon a Time. Three, I knew the perfect book to give away – Fairy Tale Flirts by my friend Lisa Scott.

This hop is in conjunction with the 3rd annual Fairy Tale Fortnight. The Fairy Tale Giveaway Hop will be held March 26 to April 2 and is hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer, The Book Rat, and A Backwards Story. Each of the blogs listed at the bottom of this post will be giving away a book with a fairy tale theme.

I am giving away an e-book copy of Fairy Tale Flirts by Lisa Scott, author of contemporary romantic comedy with a little sass. The winner can choose from a gifted Kindle, Nook, or Smashwords edition.

Five modern takes on classic fairy tales, and the only magic is the real-life kind. Each sweet, funny, romantic short story is 10,000-13,000 words in length. The stories can be read separately, but are linked together in the collection, and wrap up in the perfect happily ever after. Stories include:

“Cindi” 13,000 words – Cindi wants a perfect match—of designer shoes, that is. When her stepmother gets tickets to the Jiminy Shoes trunk sale, it looks like her dreams are coming true. Until her stepmother refuses to bring her along. With a little luck, Cindi finds herself at the sale with the shoes of her dreams, and a handsome man to boot. But when she dashes off with one of the pricey shoes by mistake, her life changes forever.

“Red” 10,000 words – When Rose brings her Grandmother leftover goodies from her floundering health-food bakery, she realizes she has bigger problems than Grandma’s daily fiber intake—a hot, young man is prowling around her rich Granny’s apartment. Jack Wolff seems to be preying on elderly women, but despite Rose’s protests, Granny’s not willing to give him up. And the nerve of him, Jack’s hitting on Rose, too. Can Rose save her business and her Grandma’s heart before it’s too late?

“Belle” 11,000 words – Belle’s father is sidelined by a stroke, and she’s determined to save his job as a master carpenter for the mysterious Prince Maxim. Despite her training, completing work on the Prince’s library is harder than she imagined, with the elusive prince watching her every move from the shadows. Belle’s intrigued by the intelligent, kind man who won’t let himself be seen. Is Belle the one to help him move beyond his painful past?

“Snow” 11,000 words – Shawna White wants nothing more than to land a role in a musical, but she’s running out of cash while she chases her dream. Her stepmother, Veronica Midas, suggests she take a nanny job for the rich man she’s trying to land, and Shawna finds herself in charge of seven kids. But Veronica didn’t realize Shawna would be living there, enchanting Jeremy and his children. Now Veronica will do whatever it takes to win her man.

“Goldie” 12,000 words – Goldie Lockston isn’t exactly homeless; she’s just a struggling artist who crashes with friends. When her pal asks her to take over vacation dog-sitting duties for a wealthy client in Grimm Towers, Goldie decides it wouldn’t hurt to move in for the week. But she wasn’t counting on being discovered when Blake Behr comes home early. Or posing as his girlfriend. Or having feelings for this grumpy, wealthy lawyer who’s unlike her in every way.

  1. Thanks Stacy! I had so much fun writing this book. It was an interesting challenge to create modern love stories based on classic fairy tales without using magic. I’m working on Fairy Tale Flirts 2! for summer 2013 release. Many readers say this is their favorite Flirts! collection out of the 7 I’ve written. (Fairy Tale Flirts! is also available in audio on audible etc.) Thanks for featuring my book!

    Thank you for the chance to enter the giveaway!

    I have a few favorite traditional and spin-off type fairy tales. One series that I loved (until the end of the last book, I didn’t like how it ended and pretend it didn’t end the way it did. I did a total rewrite in my own mind!) was the Princess Novels by Jim C Hines. There are four in the series. Very good twist on the tales of the Princesses. The books are not modern tales, but different takes on the old tales (very, very different). I also like a book that is a modern take on the Grimm curse type tales and it is called “UnEnchanted: An Unfortunate Fairy Tale (Volume 1)” by Chanda Hahn. Really good book and I do believe that it is free for the Kindle right now (but don’t quote me on that just incase. It was free for a long time so it could still be. It’s really good.
