Welcome to this week's good news
Nicola E. Sheridan
The novella, Mimosa Black, has been sold to Eternal Press. The release date is slated for 7th December 2011.
Here's the blub:
In a world where magical creatures are as rare as a spotty teen at a supermarket checkout, being one quarter Harpy shouldn’t be a problem.
Unfortunately for Mimosa Black – this is not the case. Combining her failed marriage, inability to fly, and unrequited crush on her childhood friend, Bo Elliot – Mimosa’s existence is less than idyllic.
Things however, are rarely as they seem. Bo has a secret and when Mimosa becomes involved with another man, his secret is revealed. Yet in their darkest moments, where bad magic lurks, love is never far away and Mimosa and Bo do have a chance at happiness, if they're selfless enough to find it...
Fairy Bad Day received an excellent review from Amelia at Imagination in Focus.
Here's a little teaser from it:
"Okay, right away when I read this book back in April, I knew it was going to be something special. In fact, my first Goodreads status update said: "I'm already on page ten and already this book's fantasy world is way, WAY more creative and exciting than most other books I've read recently."
Seriously. The storyworld here is very dynamic, very detailed, and beautifully simple."
"This is one of the few books of 2011 that really, truly, has made me want MORE. And isn't the cover a win?!
