For some time, I've been sitting on a story idea. I love twisted fairy tales. Into the Woods is one of my favorite musicals. The 10th Kingdom sits in DVD form on my shelf. I've even taken to Once Upon a Time, although the former Disney cast member in me cringes every time a new character is introduced. (If it was touted as a Disney show, that would be one thing...but they hype it up as fairy tales. And yes, I know it's on Disney owned ABC... Different post, I suppose.)
Anyway, I figure it's my turn to take a crack at the twisted fairy tale. This story actually started with the title. Before long, the characters took shape. I didn't really touch the story itself, but pondered it...waiting for it to come to me.
I just finished revising the first in my sci-fi saga, Heralds of the Crown: Poison. It's in the hands of a couple different agents and publishers. And although I really should revise number 2--Fusion, for those who might be curious--I needed to turn a corner and do something a little different.
Don't get me wrong. I love writing my sci-fi stories. But I've spent the last eight years in that universe. I took a little much-needed detour while writing Xadrez (also query-ready). So in celebration of Poison, I'm putting the Crown's Call aside for a little while (still querying, though!) to work on my fairy tale story. At least until it garners some attention from the publishing industry.
With that in mind, I'm pleased to introduce you to Once Upon a Heist. It's sure to be a fun romp through your favorite fairy tales. I hope you'll stick with me through the writing process! Of course, I see it all in my head...it's just a matter of translating it to words.
