Fairy Tale Fortnight

A couple years ago, I stumbled onto the blog event, Fairytale Fortnight. This is a great two week-event when bloggers and authors blog about Fairytales, write posts about their favorite retellings of Fairytales and host giveaways.

The event is taking place this year from March 23-April 6…that would be now!  Fairytale Fortnight is hosted by Book Rat Blog and A Backwards Story Blog.

You can see the entire schedule of blog posts at Book Rat’s Blog here. 

Since the event is almost over, most of the blog posts are linked and ready for you to read! This is a great way to build up your “to read” list!

One of the young adult books published by Musa Publishing (home to STAINED GLASS SUMMER) is included in this line-up of books during Fairytale Fortnight.  FIRST FROST by Liz DeJesus.


Story Blurb: Fairytales aren’t real…yeah…that’s exactly what Bianca thought. She was wrong. For generations, the Frost family has run the Museum of Magical and Rare Artifacts, handing down guardianship from mother to daughter, always keeping their secrets to “family only.”
Gathered within museum’s walls is a collection dedicated to the Grimm fairy tales and to the rare items the family has acquired: Cinderella’s glass slipper, Snow White’s poisoned apple, the evil queen’s magic mirror, Sleeping Beauty’s enchanted spinning wheel…
Seventeen-year-old Bianca Frost wants none of it, dreaming instead of a career in art or photography or…well, anything except working in the family’s museum. She knows the items in the glass display cases are fakes because, of course, magic doesn’t really exist.
She’s about to find out how wrong she is.

Liz is interviewed as a part of Fairytale Fortnight and is GIVING AWAY a copy of her book, FIRST FROST here.

FIRST FROST by Liz DeJesus is available at:
