I'm proud to announce that one of our Literary Lab authors has published her first book! Cinders, by our very own Michelle Davidson Argyle, tells the story of Cinderella after the happily ever after.
For those of you who may not be familiar with Michelle's fiction writing, it's always rich in vivid detail and emotion. Cinders is no exception. I had the honor of reading a pre-published version of this novella and finished it over the weekend.
Michelle uses enough of the details of the classic story to bring it back to life while also making use of her own imagination to provide us with something new. And, on a personal level, I know the genuine excitement with which Michelle approached this project. Never have I seen her so happy and passionate, and that energy comes through in the story...and in the beautiful production of the book. Not only did Michelle write it, but she's responsible for the cover photo, even arranging for the dress to be custom made.
I hope you'll help spread the word to readers who might enjoy Cinders. And, if you'd like to read it yourself, there's a link over to the left.
So, please join me in congratulating Michelle! I deeply admire what she's accomplished. AND, come back tomorrow for our own little celebration. We'll be giving away a free autographed copy of Cinders, along with some other publications by fellow bloggers.
