I am so thrilled to announce that Atone: A Fairytale is now available in audiobook format. I absolutely adore the narrator Randi Larson. She’s done an amazing job! Hearing Becca and Nicholas come to life is so much fun!
You can grab a copy of the audio at Audible and on Amazon (iTunes coming soon). If you’ve purchased a kindle copy you can get a discounted rate on the audio at Amazon.
Once again, a huge thank you to my amazing designer Victoria Austen Young for creating a gorgeous audiobook cover.
I hope you enjoy the audio of Atone as much as I have!
November is National Novel Writing Month! Crazy people all over the globe will be attempting to write 50 thousand words in a single month. It’s a crazy, stressful, inspirational time. I don’t get to participate in National Novel Writing Month every year, sometimes my writing schedule is just totally out of sync with it. Last year, for example, I was editing Attempting Elizabeth and Atone so there wasn’t a lot of time for starting a new project. It’s working out this year that I’ll be able to participate and I’m super excited.
And…(drum roll, please)…this year’s NaNo project is Aspire! It was on my schedule to start this summer but life has a way of getting away from us sometimes. It might work out for the best because NaNo is such a great kick start to any novel.
If you want to join me as a buddy over on NaNoWriMo here’s the link to my profile. Are you guys up for 50k in a month?!
On Monday I posted an excerpt from Atone: A Fairytale, the second book in my Fairytale Trilogy, that introduced the heroine and “hero.” I asked you guys to guess the fairy tale … and now for the reveal:
I hope you are as excited as I am by the thought of Becca and Nicholas starring in their very own version of…
Beauty and the Beast
If you want to get sucked into the internet for a few hours, I highly recommend the annotated Beauty and the Beast on SurLaLune Fairytales.
On the very last page of Awake: A Fairytale (hidden a bit under the About the Author blurb) there is an About the Fairytale Trilogy section that introduces the titles and (extremely non-specific) release dates for the next two books in the trilogy. I just realized this morning that I have never actually posted about them here on the site! I really have no excuse other than being completely consumed by the release of Awake.
About the Fairytale Trilogy
The Fairytale Trilogy by Jessica Grey is a series of Young Adult fantasy novels that are a new envisioning of classic fairy tales. The series follows three teenage girls as they are drawn into stories that they once thought were only make-believe.
Awake: A Fairytale –2012
Atone: A Fairytale – 2013
Aspire: A Fairytale – 2014

And as an added bonus I have promised the lovely @Jennwith4 a sneak peak before baseball season begins…something about her knowing I watch every game and her being afraid it will mean I don’t work on the book or some such (totally true and realistic) nonsense.* So look for a fun blurb introducing the story plus an excerpt before April 6th.
*Before the regular season, not spring training as that has already begun. And yes I have watched/listened to every Angels game so far.
Guys! Oh my gosh! Look at the countdown ticker! We are getting so close to the release of Awake! Next Tuesday it will be released into the wild.
I’ve put all the info for Awake – trailer, blurbs, and several samples – on a new site: FairytaleTrilogy.com. What? You didn’t know that it was going to be a series? Surprise! Don’t worry though, each story resolves/is a stand-alone. I’ve got issues about making readers wait and wait and wait for resolution to stories…I hate it!
I will also be putting up details about the next two books in the trilogy as they become available. Book two is already partially written and cover art is being discussed! Yay!
My many thanks to Victoria Austen-Young for putting up the new site for me. It’s all sorts of gorgeous.
That’s right, baby! Awake now has a trailer!
Please to enjoy!
My many thanks to Victoria Austen-Young for putting together the trailer and to my hubs, Ed, for composing the music!
And as a place to put the trailer and put information about Awake and the two books that will follow it, we’ve created www.fairytaletrilogy.com. I feel all official and stuff!
