The Fairy Tale Continues
Thank you to Sommer Marsden for scanning and sending me this 4-star review of Alison's Wonderland. You don't know how excited I am to see this book. Or maybe you do! The truth is that this book was a long time coming. I first did a fairy tale collection back in 2002 for Venus Book Club. The rights to the book went to Plume, which issued a new version in 03 (I hope I have my dates right). But I'd been jonesing to do a new take for years. The pitch for this collection was accepted at Harlequin in April, 2007 — so you can see that I've been on pins and needles (or mattresses and peas) for several years! In fact, this book does seem like a fairy tale come true to me.
I don't have author copies yet—but I do love knowing that the book is almost almost available. If you catch any sightings, please send them my way.
I'll have more contributor reviews up soon.
