If you're not familiar with Laura Kenyon's series, just think:
Sex and the City + Desperate Housewives + Brothers Grimm = Desperately Ever After.
Book One was named a 2014 National Indie Excellence Awards chick-lit finalist. In October, the e-book skyrocketed to the top of Amazon’s charts, hitting #49 and becoming the #1 Best Seller in each of its three categories: Women’s Humorous Fiction, Women’s Fantasy Fiction, and Paranormal Fantasy.Laura explained more about what inspired her to write the series on her blog, some of which I thought I'd share, in case these books are new for you. (Excerpted from a two-part post):
Like so many women today, I grew up on Disney movies and fairy tales.
You can read more about the issues she explores in the rest of the post HERE, but for now, here's a good little summary. ;)Then… shocker… I grew up. I got to know the real world. I experienced heartbreak and cursed the very notion of “true love” as a bunch of poison we were all force fed as a generation. I took a second look at the tales I used to love and wondered how each princess would have really felt in her situation. What would they have said if they had the freedom to do so? If their choices weren’t marriage, poverty or spinsterhood? If they had the luxury of deciding between the story’s chosen hero, someone else, or self-sufficient independence...
