Here is the synopsis and release date for my upcoming self-published novel. My cover art is in process, so for the time being I am going to be sharing some of my favorite traditional Sleeping Beauty art whenever I talk about Awake.
Awake: A Fairytale
February 7, 2012
Alexandra Martin didn’t believe in fairytales…
Alex has always been more interested in rocks and science than stories about princesses and magic. Now she’s far too busy with her summer internship at the Gem and Mineral Museum to think about children’s stories. Between avoiding her former best friend and high school baseball star, Luke Reed, and trying to hide her unrequited crush on her mentor at the museum, the real world is occupying all of her time.
…Until she walked into one.
It turns out fairytales aren’t all fun and games. A curse has turned her neat and orderly world upside down and to break it she bands together with a fellow intern and a recently awakened princess, who’s been asleep for 900 years. Can this trio of unlikely heroines put an end to an ominous enchantment, discover true love, and keep an ancient and evil magic from being unleashed on modern-day Los Angeles?
