Popping in again to let you all know about authoress Hope Ann Schmidt's latest release, Rose of Prophecy -- the first of nine novellas in the Legends of Light series!


She is afraid. Not because she is alone. Not because thick roiling clouds obscure the moon. Not because the wind rushes through the forest like a wild dragon. She is afraid because she is late. And to be late means death.
Her life had been happy once. 
Despite the destruction wreaked by Tauscher, traitor to the King. Despite the distant war led by the Prince and fought with the help of her three brothers. Despite her own poorly-chosen nickname of Beauty, she'd enjoyed life. 
Of course, that was also before her father left home on a hopeful errand but returned weary and ill, bearing a velvety scarlet rose which he claimed would never wither. But even life in the ancient hall, tucked away in the center of Mosswood, surrounded by roses of every description, overshadowed with mystery and home to a scarred figure who is more beast than man, wasn't too bad after a time. 
But now... now, in a flash of light, Beauty finally glimpses the truth. And the cost. The price which must be paid, or the sacrifice which must be made.
It is a curse which even love alone may not be able to break.

Writing in the Light Publishing proudly presents the first of nine novellas in 

The Legends of Light series!
Rose of Prophecy,
a fantasy-seeped retelling of Beauty and the Beast
containing an ancient promise, an invisible spy, and the legendary Stieg der,
is more than a mere retelling of a favorite fairy tale.

Each novella focuses on one of the
nine Fruits of the Spirit
while also following the conflict between the Prince and Tauscher

and expertly retelling and twisting some popular, as well as several lesser known, fairy tales.

Find Rose of Prophecy on Smashwords and Amazon.

  1. Oooo!!! This is a very good story!! I had the privilege of reading it shortly after it was written.

  2. Ok, it says to pick it up free on Smashwords and Amazon, but it's not free on Amazon.

    1. Thanks for letting me know, @Erudessa Aranduriel! :)
      As I understand it, ROSE OF PROPHECY is set to be free within a few days' time. :)

    2. Ok!! I thought it was going to be, but then I clicked through to Amazon and it wasn't.

  3. Thanks Olivia. :)

    You can download ROSE OF PROPHECY in kindle or nook format at Smashwords. I've price matched it on Amazon, but it sometimes takes a week or two for things to go through. ;)
