Who doesn’t love Cinderella stories? And who can resist one set in sunny Southern California?
Amanda Berry is my critique partner and, as you can see, we write in two very different genres. But good storytelling is good storytelling. I actually believe it’s better to have a fresh mind and pair of eyes that’s not prey to the same genre tricks and traps that you are.
Reading this story was like watching one of those breezy romantic comedies starring Anne Hathaway….hmm…I think she could totally play Natalie in the movie version….
You can win a free copy of L.A Cinderella simply by going to Amanda Berry‘s blog and commenting this weekend. This is her debut novel and it was picked up after Amanda placed first in the Marlene contest hosted by the Washington Romance Writers. Contest dreams do come true! Amanda and I are both contest junkies and we’re both feeling a bit of withdrawal.
L.A. Cinderella will be available in bookstores June 2010 and she’ll also be signing at RWA this year. Giddy!
