A Fun New Release

A Fun New Release

Everyone knows I’m a sucker for fantasy, and strong female protagonists, and stories about overcoming adversity and bullies. That’s why I’m delighted to share Meg Welch Dendler’s new release, Bianca the Brave frail and Delicate Princess, with you!

Princess Bianca had never set foot outside the castle walls. Not once in her over-protected, pink, fluffy life. But when a dragon was spotted in the land and fear spread that the monster had conquered the king and his brave knights, Bianca realized that it was her duty to protect her kingdom. She will have to prove that she can be braver and stronger than anyone believed because the threat outside the protection of her castle tower was more dangerous and magical than she ever imagined possible, except in a fairy tale.

Here’s what reviewers are saying about Bianca:

“Princess Bianca rules, in every way! This tale of intrepid discovery and determination will delight young readers, and will dare those who deal with the dragons of self-doubt, frustration, and bullying to step out and challenge those menaces to a duel.”
Listed as a Favorite from New England Children’s Book Review

“This was such a cute little book. I just adored reading so I could review. It is absolutely a wonderful read for any young kids dealing with school bulleys, self doubt, self confidence.

Its also a wonderful fantasy world for anyone to delve right into and get lost into this cute story. A suggested book for anyone with kids. Your kids will adore it and its a completely wonderful book to read.” -Amazon Reviewer

I’m definitely adding this one to my to-read list!

A Forgotten Treasure

A Forgotten Treasure

I don’t know about you guys, but I am so ready for Christmas this year! With the Keepers of the Wellsprings series finished, it’s my first holiday in a while that hasn’t had me partly distracted by Azi, Tib, or Celli. In fact, the group is so far from my mind that I nearly forgot about Snowberry Blossom!

Snowberry Blossom is a short story which takes place in between books 2&3, on Midwinter’s Eve. I wrote it as an introduction to the characters and world they live in. It’s always free, and it’s available wide, including iBooks, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, and other platforms: 

Author V.M. Sawh had this to say about the story:

This little story by Missy Sheldrake is the literary equivalent of having a warm cup of Spiced Apple Tea in front of a fireplace while watching the Neverending Story on a snowy winter’s afternoon.
Got that?
Good. Now go pick up this short story. It’s gorgeous new cover art is Christmas-decoration-pretty and the writing is rich and inviting with clear descriptions, surprisingly well-rendered characters (for such a short length) and an engaging little story.
