Hello, dear readers, and welcome!
Today is the Book Birthday of my newest fairytale short, Beauty Beheld! I am very excited to release this short -- the last in the Beastly Tales, which marks my first completed series!
I've always loved fairytales, and Beauty and the Beast is one of my particular favorites. Writing these Tales has been very fun, but this last short was perhaps the most difficult to write. It didn't end up being anything like I thought it would be, and it was both strange and refreshing to pen a new take on the character of Beauty.
I've released this short today, on National Teacher Day, in honor of one of my best friends. She encouraged me to keep writing these shorts (she encourages me to write regularly, anyway, and I'd probably not get anything done without her), and she's a huge fairytale fan -- not to mention a great teacher.
Teachers do so much to pave a way to a brighter future, so be sure to thank a teacher today.
I've enjoyed the road to finishing this series of shorts, and I hope you've all enjoyed reading this different version of Beauty and the Beast. Thank you for your support!
You thought you knew Beauty--
But think again.
Evangeline prizes knowledge above anything else, even people. Mistreated by her mother, who thought beauty was the only thing important in the world, Evangeline has come to scorn her fellow humans; burdened by sorrow, she cannot comprehend what true beauty is.
But with unexpected guidance, Evangeline's father whisks her away from their home to a new town, one surrounded by the forest, and by mystery. There, Evangeline confronts hideous ugliness...and in it discovers how to behold true beauty.
The final Beastly Tale, this is the story of Beauty -- Evangeline -- as you've never heard it before. For who is Beauty when she cannot see what is beautiful?
