Have you heard that I have a brand new retelling coming your way? That’s right, friends, Hansel and Gretel’s witch…wasn’t.
Sugarcoated is my brand new novella that will be featured inside of the Blood From A Stone Twisted Villains Anthology coming out this fall.
Here’s what you need to know:
Hansel and Gretel’s witch…wasn’t.
Annika’s job is to create a cake to match the candy-colored rooftops, nightly firework shows, and daily parades ending in unexpected executions for the mad king’s ball, but her true mission is to sneak a thirteen-year-old assassin into the palace using her gift of illusions.
Hansel’s job is to protect his little sister, Gretel, once she assassinates King Levin and ends the destruction in Candestrachen, using his power over light to rescue the young girl from the chaos her influence over life and death will create.
When the entire forest reconstructs itself under Gretel’s command while trying to save herself from a king’s guard, Hansel and Annika must put their feelings aside and ensure their plan holds true—even if it means one of them has to sacrifice themselves to protect the mission.
Her illusions were meant to save her….but not everyone will survive the assassination attempt.
Sounds pretty good, right? I happen to love how this story worked out and I think you’re going to be pretty excited about Hansel, Gretel, and Anika too…wink, wink.
PS there’s some really good kissing scenes in this one. Just saying. (It’s super fan Yentl’s fault…I wrote them because I knew she’d gush over them and spend days DMing me to giggle over it hahaha)
I jumped on Instagram Live to talk a little about it the other day…check it out here:
Are you excited? How do you think this is going to end up playing out in this twisted villains story? Sound off, friends!
PS Wanna read it first? Let me know and I might be able to slip you an ARC 😉
