Originally, this would have been release day for Stolen Petals with Breathless Press. However, as many of you know, Breathless Press is closing doors on May 1st, to the chagrin of many. Truly sad news, given the wonderful community of Breathless Press and the hundreds of fantastic books they published.
What does it mean for Stolen Petals? Well, once I’ve received my rights back, I’ll either self publish, or resubmit the story elsewhere. Either way, it will surface again, and hopefully within the year. In the meantime, you can wait for Soul Solution, a Beyond Fairytales romance set to come out with Decadent Publishing!
A little author insight on Stolen Petals: Viola and Edward were an absolute joy to write, but Viola was definitely a bit different from most of my leads. I gravitate towards the sassy, crass type of women, like Bea in Airship Named Desire, or Neve from Poisoned Apple, even though she wasn’t as outspoken. Viola wasn’t like that. Her perspective was fascinating to write, because it was so different from my own. I’m more honest, tend to blurt things out, and while I can be polite or considerate, I prefer less formal settings. She’s someone who thrives in the formal, because she’s had such a foul past, that sinking into the ritual of upper class allows her to focus on trivialities rather than the turmoil of her mind. For a guarded person like her, those circles are perfect.
However, Edward turned into my sassy, crass character, the exact type to strip away each layer of petticoat until he got to the real person behind the facade. Well, and some literal stripping of petticoats occurs.
