KINGDOM IS BACK!

Once upon a time in a land far, far away lived a fairy. A beautiful, wild creature who dared to fall in love with the Man in the Moon...


Did you guys know I'm writing another Kingdom novella? And not only that, but that it'll be ready by Dec. 7? GASP!! I know, I know what you're thinking??? KINGDOM, SQUEAK, FLAIL, FLUTTER?!?! I THOUGHT MARIE WASN'T WRITING ANYMORE KINGDOM STORIES...

Of course I am! I haven't forgotten my first love, fairy tales, or the wonderful, zany people who inhabit the world of madness and mayhem. I'm hard at work on this novella right now and can you believe that it's 70% done! In fact, in just a few short days I will be doing a grand cover reveal for the book. I think you're all gonna love it, I know I do! Continue to check out my blog for further updates or my twitter @mariehallwrites for teaser lines from the book. I can tell you that this is turning out to be one of my absolute favorites of the bunch. I think you're going to just adore Jericho. Also, there's a big, BIG surprise in this book and it involves one of your favorite Kingdom characters. I'm not saying who, you'll just have to wait and see. *devilish grin* But for now, since I love you all so much…

Here is one of my favorite scenes of the book:

“I’ve got magic too,” he said, “do you want to see it?”

“Yes, of course!” She bobbed her head.

Raising his hands, he began pulling at the air and at first she wasn’t sure what she was supposed to be seeing, or if he was even doing anything.

But then suddenly all the light that came from the glow worms began to spiral toward them, drawing into a tight band of glistening light.

Laughing, she covered her mouth and watched as he then began to wave his fingers through the air and the light that’d been bolted together, was now turning into glimmers of glitter and he was forming something.

She cocked her head, unsure of what that something was, but as the glow began to take shape, she realized it was a bed.

Their glittering, golden mattress awaited…

ALSO...

for you Hatter lovers out there, a second big surprise! Dec. 1, I along with many other fantastic writers of fairy tales (RaShelle Workman, Chanda Hahn, and Cameron Jace) will be releasing a fractured fairy tale boxed set. But here's the best part… not only will it be .99 for the entire collection (a steal in and of itself) it will feature a new Hatter short story (Hatter's Treasure)! It is always so much fun to get back into the madness that is the Hatter's mind. I'll be sending out another newsletter on release day!

Happy reading!
~Marie
