Hello hello hello! I’ve been working on Through a Shattered Glass on and off for a bit, and now I have some exciting news! Which you can probably guess from the title, but in case you’re the kind of person who skims past the title and just clicks the post: Through a Shattered Glass has a cover! And a release date! And, in a surprise to no one at all, it’s going to be released as part of the Broken Mirrors Arista Challenge Group.
So, who’s ready to see the shiny?
Drop the mirror and you break the world in two.
Alys hasn’t set foot in Wonderland in years. Not since the White Queen’s mirror shattered; not since her best friend, Kai Hatter, was killed; not since Alys fled back to her own world with a shard of enchanted mirror in her eye. She’s done her best to set aside the past and move on — until a red-painted rose appears in her room, and the portal opens once more.
Simultaneously desperate for hope and terrified of what she might find — or cause — Alys ventures back through the mirror. But the Wonderland she finds is not the same one she left behind, and though Kai is less dead than she thought, he still might be past saving. To make matters worse, the mirror shard is still in Alys’s eye, and Wonderland is all too susceptible to its corrupting power.
Only Alys can save the land and friend she loves — but if she’s not careful, she might be their doom instead.A dark portal fantasy remix of The Snow Queen and Lewis Carroll’s Alice duology.
Releasing December 23, 2022
Yes, you did read that correctly — this will be my second book released this year. And yes, it is coming out just two days before Christmas, which means I will be extra busy this holiday season. It’s fine. (And yes, this means it may or may not arrive in time for Christmas gifts . . . but if it’s a little late, it’s fine. It spreads out the cheer, y’know?)
As I mentioned, Through a Shattered Glass is releasing alongside the rest of the Broken Mirrors collection, a group of six Snow Queen retellings, which I strongly encourage you to check out! They all sound SO GOOD. You can learn more about them by reviewing the escapades from last night’s Facebook party, but I also have some links here.
