Six of the Best-450
Welcome back to Six of the Best on Sundays! In this hop, authors are sharing six of their best paragraphs from a published work or a work in progress. Today, I’m sharing six of the best from my fractured fairy tale The Princess and the Huntsman. You can find out more about this book on my website here, including an extended excerpt.

But for today, I’ll just preface this segment by saying that Princess Brandywyn is a bit spoiled but bright and curious. Her maids have found something pretty fascinating, and she should resist temptation but…

“Hmm,” Brandywyn said, debating whether to be angry or join them in their conspiracy. She opted to do something in the middle. “You two go off and pray to goddess Fatua. Spying is a sin, I am sure.”

They looked at each other, crestfallen, but finally both nodded at her. “Aye, Your Highness, we shall do as you say, of course.”

“Hurry off,” Brandywyn admonished, shooing them away with a gesture.

They curtsied low and backed out of the room.

After the door closed, Brandywyn reached for the concealing picture, thinking to put it back, but hesitated. Unable to help herself, she looked into the adjoining room.

princessandthehuntsman_fullI looked all over for a good holiday to share with you for today, February 24, but all I could come up with was “National Tortilla Chip Day.” Somehow, that didn’t serve my purposes very well. However, I did discover that February 26 is “Tell a Fairy Tale Day.” This one is right up my alley. I’ve written three published adult fairy tales: The Princess and the Huntsman (based upon The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain), Goldie & the Three Doms (Twisted Fairy Tales) (based upon the classic, “Goldilocks and the Three Bears”) and Snowy & the Seven Wharves (Twisted Fairy Tale) (based upon “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”).

What’s great about this day is that it’s family-friendly. It’s not all about authors and their books, it’s about sharing the fun of reading. Everyone loves a good fairy tale, whether it’s based upon a classic, or something altogether new.

My suggestion is to get yourself two fairy tales: a classic (Google Books is great for those), and a modern (try mine!). You’ll be surprised at how different they can be, even when they have the same premise.

“Tell a Fairy Tale Day” can even be an opportunity for you to make one up yourself! Be creative. I’m sure there’s an event or a moral you’d like to portray in a tale. Don’t hold back.

I hope you enjoy “Tell a Fairy Tale Day”. I know I will!
