I'm almost done uploading my "Rising" series to Wattpad, and tonight I uploaded the first chapter of my never-published, lighthearted fairy tale story--the Story That Almost Wasn't from my previous blog post.
If you're interested in reading the first chapter or following along as I post updates, the story is here: My Kingdom for a Sorceress.
What it's about:
Prince Wenceslas would much rather be at home in his castle than wandering the world looking for enchanted princesses. Unfortunately, he has less than a month to fulfill a "gift" set upon him at birth by a drunken fairy godmother. If he can't rescue a princess--any princess--from a spell and marry her by his seventeenth birthday, he'll prick his finger on a glass coffin and fall into an eternal sleep that can only be broken by true love's kiss.
Given that he doesn't have a true love, his options seem pretty limited. Marrying a stranger can't be worse than sleeping forever-or so he thinks until he meets Arrow, a club-wielding sorceress whose magic constantly goes awry. She convinces him that he doesn't have to let any magic, fairy godmother or otherwise, run his life.
Wenceslas sets out with Arrow to look for a princess he might actually want to marry. A magic forest, a witch who collects frog princes, and love potions are only a few of the things standing in his way, but Wenceslas soon finds that what hinders him most isn't any magic...it's his own heart.
