Free Book Giveaways
Welcome to Mocklore, a tiny magical empire where fairy tales are deadly and quests are practically compulsory before you turn eighteen.
Best friends Bounty and Luc leave home to seek their fortunes -- or in Bounty's case, fake it as hard as she can. Once she sets Luc up with a stolen horse and a cushy job as a Famous Hero, she'll be free to figure her own future out without him... right? But Luc isn't so keen to give up on their Dream Team, and the longer Bounty puts off leaving him behind, the harder it gets.
How's a half-hobgoblin girl supposed to find her place in the world if she can't let go of the one boy who's always been by her side?
Glass Slipper Scandal (Castle Charming #1)
Charming is a kingdom where fairy tales come true, which has been bad news for its troubled royal family, but good news for the gutter press that thrives on the scandals and gossip provided by their teenage Princes Gone Wild. Kai is a rookie reporter at the Charming Herald. Dennis is a new Royal Hound, charged with protecting the self-destructive princes from disaster.
Disaster arrives in a pumpkin coach… The story of the century will be wearing glass slippers, and Castle Charming will never be the same again.
This novelette was originally published as a web serial on the Sheep Might Fly podcast.
