Worth the Wait!

So I was happily surprised to get another review of Iffy Magic, which was published in 2016. This five star review from Readers' Favorite was well worth the wait!

*The Amazon editorial quote excerpt:

"An often surprising, always magical romp through a fairytale you wish would never end. With an incredible opening containing just the right amount of intrigue and despair to hold a reader fast, S.E. Page sets the pace and introduces the world of Iffy Magic in one deft move."

*But this has to be my favorite excerpt:

"Trying to steer a human venture, more suited to going on knightly quests than playing the princess in peril, towards wedded bliss was doomed from the start after all, right? The resulting battle of wills made for great humor and poignant growth for both Prim and Ember."

Prickmedainty Poetry

I am currently buried in the middle of my Rose Red revisions, but just for fun, I have started a poetry chapbook on Wattpad! I will be sharing fresh ink every weekend.

"Prick-me-dainty" is one of my favorite archaic words. It has several meanings, including a fop, fancy and/or finicky dresser, someone overly fastidious about appearance, language or behavior. As a writer, I feel like quite the prickmedainty character in my own life story sometimes. So I guess I am trying to have a little fun with my poetry and not be quite so serious.

What do you do to get out of your writer's shell and drink in the world?

Winter blues and Cyber Stars

So at the end of January I broke my arm in my driveway after slipping on black ice.

My writing goals have been shoved to the side for the last few weeks, but I hope to tackle the revisions of my Snow White Rose Red tale a little bit each day. It's amazing how tedious typing becomes with one hand. But I've become so accustomed to a digital writing process that a paper notebook quickly becomes a black hole of  illegible ink scribbles. Time to stretch my brain into new ways of processing creative energy!

On a happier note, I am thrilled to share a five star review of Stealing the Dark Moon from Readers' Favorite. I even get this spiffy web medal:

"S.E. Page combines everything that's captivating about fairy tales with the need to belong . . . The characters are endearing, amazingly written, and will completely melt your heart."
