New Release: Straying from the Path

Things happen when you stray from the path:

  • Wondrous things
  • Frightening things
  • Disturbing things

Step from the well-trodden path and into the world of sour magic and unexpected consequences. Here you’ll discover how to:

  • Duel with a scarred war prince
  • Defeat a (dashing) bandit king with your own army of toads
  • Venture into the depths of the forest for your heart’s desire
  • Forge a bond so strong it defies even death

Straying from the Path includes two brand-new novellas and four short stories in the (forthcoming) Sour Magic series of fairy tales, perfect for anyone who loves retellings and fairy tale adaptations.

Remember, anything can happen when you stray from the path.

Stung by an epic betrayal, Camy Cavanaugh relies on the sure things: her best friend, her job as peer tutor, and her safe spot on the sidelines of life. But when she hacks into a secret, trash-talking website, it ignites a war between the sexes that won’t end until the whole school is turned upside down–and Camy’s world is turned inside out.

Now the hottest girls in school refuse to date the A-List boys. But with the Homecoming dance looming, everyone from the queen bee to the girl “most likely to” pushes Camy to hook them up with guys from the nerd herd.

And then there’s quarterback, A-lister–and former crush–Gavin Madison. He hasn’t spoken to Camy in three years … but he’s talking now, begging her to pair the guys on the football team with girls from the Honor Roll.

It’s a contest of wills and everything is on the line–even Camy’s heart. Will she retreat to the sidelines, or will she find the courage to get back in the game?

Curious? Read a couple of early reviews here and here.

The same narrator who performed The Fine Art of Keeping Quiet also narrated these stories. I think she did a fantastic job. She had a knack for knowing exactly how I wanted something read or where the emphasis in certain sentences should be. In short: she was amazing.
