After many years of work: brainstorming, laughing, writing, rewriting, adding, cutting and polishing, Maven Fairy Godmother: Through the Veil is live and available through MuseItUp Publishing for $5.95 in all e-reader formats.
Maven is that everywoman of a certain age who feels that her life has passed her by, and that she has no options, especially since she is too broke to pay attention. When she gets a job interview call on her dead cellphone, however, things start looking up–who would have thought about becoming a fairy godmother?
But things are not well in Faery, and the more Maven learns, the deeper in she gets. HEre’s a sample:
“Be careful what you ask for,” Maven said, “You just might get it.”
The girl stared at Maven for a moment. She held up her fingers and started counting. “I just want to have (one) the fabulous, romantic evening with (two) the beautiful clothes and (three) the lovely music and (four) the elegant food I didn’t have to cook.” Wistful hope shone on her face even behind the calculations of exactly what kinds of fun girls just want to have. She stuck out her thumb and added, “I was very careful.”
