Swan Prince Cover, E-book

Catching her leg in a bear trap proves the least of Sula’s worries.

Haunted by an enchanted monster from a past she dare not reveal,

and hounded by the perilously perceptive young village doctor, Villem Deere,

the headstrong girl of the woods gambles with fate by binding hers to that of Sigmund, the captivating orphan boy with mysterious nightly business of his own.

The Swan Prince: Book One of The Wilderhark Tales

<> ~ <> ~ <>

An enchantress’s curse turns a spoiled royal into a beast;

A princess’s pricked finger places her under a hundred-year spell;

Bales of straw are spun as golden as the singing harp whisked down a giant beanstalk –

All within sight of Wilderhark, the forest that’s seen it all.

You’ve heard the stories –

of young men scaling rope-like braids to assist the tower-bound damsel;

of gorgeous gowns appearing just in time for a midnight ball;

of frog princes, and swan princes,

and princes saved from drowning by maidens of the sea.

Tales of magic. Tales of adventure. Most of all, tales of true love.

Once upon a time, you knew them as fairytales. Know them now as Wilderhark’s.

“A great reason to get excited over good, old-fashioned storytelling”

“A beautifully-crafted tale”

“A swift read with a captivating cast”

“Shipley writes with a witty voice, twining traditional beauty and modern storytelling as intimately as the enchanted destinies in her masterful debut novella”

  1. Ha! Just ordered! Meaning that, combined with my mentions on Facebook and my blog, I have 9 chances in that raffle!

  2. Reblogged this on The Hyperteller and commented:
    If you like books (of course you do) and you like talented writers (of course you do), then you should most definitely absolutely completely and totally check out this. A wonderful writer has just released her first book, and not only can you now get your hands on a shiny copy in both print and digital copies, you can also help her get the message out in order to win some fantastic prizes.

    So there we go, prizes, and a shiny new book. What more could you want from a Friday?

  3. Congratulations BNF! What a sumptuous looking book is it, from what I’ve seen of it so far. I’ve reblogged this post on my site, with the comment:
