Preorder Ash & Bramble plus SWAG

What if the stories tell us??

My first YA, Ash & Bramble, is not really a retelling of a fairytale, it’s more an exploding of it.  Cinderella has amnesia.  The Godmother is the bad guy. The Prince is a mediocre kisser.  The Shoemaker is … kind of cute, actually.  And a happily-ever-after is the worst possible ending.

The book comes out from HarperTeen on September 15th!

My local independent bookstore, Prairie Lights, is taking pre-orders of Ash & Bramble–and every pre-ordered book comes signed (by me) and personalized (to you or whoever you choose) and includes one of these fancy button-pins (designed by my friend Jenn at Tiger Bright Studios) (buttons are 1 1/2″)

AllThreePins (1)

Here’s how to pre-order!



Call 319-337-2681 and ask for the kids section

Orders can be mailed to you or (if you’re local) picked up in the store.

Yes, you’ve seen it before, but this is the actual gorgeous IMG_5237 cover for Ash & Bramble.

In publishing they call it a “jacket,” by the way. But I’ll persist in calling it a “cover.” In the picture here it’s covering a book that is not my book, because the actual book doesn’t come out until September. It’s sitting on a stack of ARC’s (early copies for reviewers and booksellers, and maybe for you once I get around to doing a giveaway).

Sometime before then I’ll be sending out some sneak peeks and cut scenes to subscribers to my newsletter, which you can sign up for here..
