Authors of Five Enchanted Roses
As many of you know, I entered a contest titled Five Enchanted Roses, in which authors send in various retellings of Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont's Beauty and the Beast. I sadly did not win, but am more than excited to announce (a long overdue announcement, if I do say so myself) the winners!
with Espirit de la Rose,
with Stone Curse,
with Rosara and the Jungle King,
with The Wulver's Rose!
I am delighted for all these lovely authors, and cannot wait to read their stories! You can find more about the novella collection here.
I present to you, the new completed cover!

A Chance to Win Draven's Light
I am only beginning to see how much I enjoy Tales of Goldstone Wood. Many of my blog posts have revolved around it, and this entry itself is basically all-things-Stengl. :)
Rooglewood Press -- the publishing company supporting the most recent books of ToGW -- is calling out book-lovers to read Anne Elisabeth Stengl's most recent Tale, Draven's Light! (Sound familiar? You may recall the cover reveal.) Even better than an early electronic copy of the novel? Influence-r readers also have the chance to win an autographed print copy!
Rules and guidelines for becoming an early reader of Draven's Light can be viewed by clicking on the image below.
I (to my great distaste, but own personal instruction) will not be entering for an early copy, seeing as I am still finishing up Dragonwitch, and want to read the books in order before moving on. But, my best wishes to all, and I cannot wait to read this Tale!
