Readers' Favorite 5 Star Seal for "Hook's Little Mermaid"

Rather a long time ago I had submitted "Hook's Little Mermaid" to Readers' Favorite in the hopes that I might get a review.

To be honest, I thought there was no chance someone would decide to look at my book, with all the amazing authors out there.  But thankfully, someone did!

Here's her review:

Reviewed By Liz Konkel for Readers’ Favorite

Hook’s Little Mermaid by Suzanna Lynn is a fun take on the classic story of Peter Pan. Everyone knows the story of Captain Hook and Peter Pan. Lynn spins the tale of Jameson Shaw as he searches for the boy Peter Pan who’s responsible for the death of his son. Jameson Shaw goes up against several obstacles as he makes his way to Neverland, including kidnapping and making a deal with a fairy, meeting Red Riding Hood, and fighting off a Kraken. With the aid of a fairy, it seems that his revenge against Pan will become a reality. His journey encounters several surprise turns when he meets the mermaids of Neverland and learns the truth of his son’s death.

As a fan of Peter Pan and J.M. Barrie, I love finding different ways of adapting the story into something new. I love Hook’s Little Mermaid! It’s perfect for any lover of fairytales. Suzanna Lynn takes threads of what we know of the tale and flips it all into a new direction. Picking up the traces of other fairytales is a fun treat for those who adore the classic tales. Knowing that Red’s story is the center of book two makes me wonder what other stories will be explored. The red cloak was a quick giveaway to Red Riding Hood. A glass coffin reminds Hook of a realm called Fairest which has a wicked witch that cursed a girl to sleep. A mermaid has legs when she comes ashore. Lynn has created a rich world full of potential and twists. Hook is fun, a fairytale for a new generation and a delightful take on old classics.

Red's Tangled Tale - Cover Reveal

Everyone knows the story of Little Red Riding Hood. Well, at least they think they do. History would have many believe Red was a naïve little girl who brought treats to her grandmother in the dark of the forest. History had it wrong.

After the curse of the wolves came to Timbergard, Red’s father was the only soul brave enough to enter Blakx Forest. However, when the wolves claimed his life, his young daughter took up his bow and began hunting the beasts to fill her need for revenge.
When Captain Hook shows up in the village in search of the rare burning ash that lies on the far borders of the cursed forest, Red agrees to help get him safely through the dangerous land.

The trek through the forest becomes precarious when the group is cornered by a pack of wolves. Red is forced to make a decision that will alter the lives of everyone, including individuals she has yet to meet.
The cover of the much anticipated "Red's Tangled Tale," book two in The Untold Stories, has been revealed!

With only two weeks until publication, you can now preorder your copy at Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kobo and Smashwords (Amazon will not have a preorder for this title but will carry it on November 1 when it is released).

In addition to the cover, fans will get exclusive teasers as well as a teaser trailer over the next two weeks, building to the anticipation of the release.

Red's Tangled Tale - Release Party

Red's Tangled Tale is set to release on Tuesday, November 1, 2016, and I couldn't be more excited.

It is the second book in "The Untold Stories" series, and picks up with Red in her village, later running into the notorious Captain Hook.  You don't need to have read "Hook's Little Mermaid" to enjoy this book, though you will see how the two stories connect if you do.

In celebration of the release, a handful of my author friends have come together to take part in the release party hosted by Belle's Beastly Book Blog.  As you can see, the author lineup is rather impressive and I'm really excited to have them a part of it.

The party will include loads of giveaways, so that alone is reason not to miss it.

If you are on Facebook, you merely have to respond via the party link here.

It will be loads of fun, I can't wait to see you there!
