Blog Tour for "Sleeping Handsome": Day One

TOMORROW. My little book is getting released to the world tomorrow. AND I COULDN'T be more thrilled/nervous/actuallymoreliketerrifiedwithadashofhysteria.


Today I'm going to share with you a couple quotes, an exclusive snippet of my lil' story, and a deeper look into my main character, Minnie Matthews. At the end of the post, I'm giving you a link to a giveaway where you can enter to win a paperback copy of "Sleeping Handsome" or two "The Princess and I" bookmarks.

But first,

~ The Summery ~
 
Minnie's goal was to have a fun, worry free vacation with her best friend Amy. A few weeks spent in their favorite far away place before they both went back to their respective colleges. A visit to the many famous sights across the British Isles has been on both their bucket lists for a very long time, after all.
However, when a mysterious taxi driver mentions a legend that somehow concerns her ancestral heritage, she decides to dig deeper. After being accused of stealing the famous statue and tourist attraction known as Sleeping Handsome, Minnie and Amy are plunged into a world they would never have imagined existed.
Prince Gregory, after being awakened from being frozen in stone for hundreds of years, finds himself searching for his true love in order to reverse the stone spell on his kingdom and awaken the rest of his people. With his faithful horse Brutis by his side, he sets out to destroy his greatest enemy, release his kingdom from the stone spell, and win the heart of his princess.


~ The Quotes ~
 

 
~The Snippet ~


            “Oh, this is Brutis. He’s Prince Gregory’s horse.” Amy made the introductions after getting up close to Brutis’ ear and then yelling “THE PRINCE IS IN DANGER! HELP! HELP!”

            With a startled snort, Brutis jumped to his feet and searched the room in bewilderment. “What? Where?” He caught sight of Amy right next to him and frowned. “I told you not to do that unless there’s an emergency situation," he said sulkily.

            Amy patted him. “I want to introduce you to my family and Minnie’s family real quick, then you’re welcome to go back to moping.”

            “That’s not an emergency situation,” the horse muttered while bowing to the family members.

    1. That's awesome! :) Its always fun to find that you match a character's personality. ;)
      Ikr? One of my absolute favs. XD
      Those are some good ones. I'm hoping to maybe start another retelling at some point, so I've been trying to find other less-used fairytales to base a new story off of. :)

I LOVE COMMENTS. But be warned, if your comment is impolite, contains swear words, or is disrespectful of God, I will kill it. Just kidding. ;)
(Seriously though...it WILL DIE.)

In Which I Apologize Profusely, and let You All Know that I Am Still Alive

Points for what I think is probably my longest blog title EVER. But I am not here to talk about that. I am here to apologize.  Last you...
