Once upon a time...

... is more fun mashed! My upcoming novella, Finette's Folly, is a reimagined fairy tale based on the French version of Cinderella, Finette Cendron. In steampunk!

It's been literally years in the making, but it's almost ready to release.

Here's a peek at the cover.

Happy endings require patience, hope, and a little ingenuity. Finette Proulx puts her skills at repairing clockwork gadgetry to greater use when she bets all she has on an airship race. Her loss only steams up her desire to win the prize at the British Diamond Cup—and her freedom. After such a lonely life, love seems too much to ask... until she meets Sacha. A mysterious Romanian, “Sacha” Aleksander Dragomir Dalca, aids her in ways she doesn’t suspect. At the moment she thinks her life is falling into ruin, she finds him waiting to catch her with open arms. The handsome gypsy affirms her belief that dreaming's not for fools, and she deserves to write her happy ending her own way.

I can't wait to share this story with you!

Wishing you the best with your upcoming release! Sounds interesting. I love the title. I have never read any steampunk books- but I know they are very popular. :)
