Wow. It’s a little more than a month before CAT’S TALE: A FAIRY TALE RETOLD will be available for purchase from Carina Press and many other fine e-tailers–I’d better get pimping.
To the left, you will see the lovely, lovely cover done by the fabulous Frauke of Croco Designs. I’ve always loved Frauke’s work, but I’m just over-the-moon about this cover. Not only is it 100% Mantitty-Free, it captures the focus and mood of the story wonderfully.
Here’s the back-cover blurb:
Once upon a time there was a scheming, lying tart who cared for nothing but her own pleasures and her shoe collection.
Once the peerlessly beautiful Lady Catriona, consort to the king, Cat’s fortunes fall far when her aged husband dies. The king’s wizard turns her into a cat and tries to drown her in the mill pond. Fortunately Cat is a clever survivor and enlists the help of Julian, the miller’s youngest son, in her plan for revenge.
She originally sees Julian as a mere pawn for her plans to break her curse, but as they work together Cat comes to know and care for him. Even if the curse can be broken, can a good-hearted man love a woman who has been as vain and selfish as Cat?
CAT’S TALE will be available June 27, 2011. In the mean time, keep an eye on this blog for an excerpt or two.
