If you are anything like me, you spend too much time on social media. For most of my adult life, social media was my job! To nip that endless scrolling weakness in the butt, I have spent time tailoring my social media accounts. Now my accounts only show me inspiration. On my list are only authors, aspiring authors, bullet journal enthusiasts (it’s a thing, I love it) and other bloggers. And the occasional family/friend member, of course.
If I’m following you, basically, I know you or you inspire me!
Through this quest, I found Chantal Gadoury, someone that I’ve really enjoyed getting to know. I look forward to seeing daily on the internet. And guess what? She is coming out with TWO novels this year. Here I’m sharing with you a bit on her Grimm Fairytale retelling release, Allerleirauh from The Parliment House.
What is Allerleirauh about?
Once Upon a Time…
In the kingdom of Tranen, a king makes a promise to his dying wife that he’ll only remarry a woman who possesses her golden hair. In time, the king’s eyes are turned by his daughter. Realizing her father’s intentions, Princess Aurelia tries to trick him by requesting impossible gifts: dresses created by the sun, moon and stars, and a coat made of a thousand furs. But when he is successful, Aurelia sacrifices her privileged life and flees her kingdom, disguised by the cloak and a new name, Allerleirauh.
She enters the safe haven of Saarland der Licht, where the handsome and gentle Prince Klaus takes her under his care. Hoping not to be discovered by her father’s courtiers, Allerleirauh tries to remain hidden under her new identity when she finds unexpected love with Prince Klaus, even though his arranged marriage to the princess of a neighboring kingdom approaches. Risking everything, Allerleirauh must face her troubled past and her fears of the future along her journey to self-acceptance in this triumphant retelling of the classic Grimm Fairy Tale.
Sounds amazing, doesn’t it? And I’ve got something even more exciting to share. Watch the book trailer for Allerleirauh below.
