Reversion of the Princesses
It’s strange to write about reversion after doing the Janitors trilogy. It conjures up visions of Danielle, Talia, and Snow White going feral and wrecking their way through Lorindar.
In this case, what it means is that the rights for the Princess novels have reverted back to me. That’s why you can’t buy the ebooks from Amazon or elsewhere anymore. DAW won’t be printing any more of the print copies, either.
This is a normal part of the publishing circle of life. This is the first of my series to reach this milestone. It’s sad in some respects, but it also opens up some new opportunities. On April 25, I’ll be republishing all four books in electronic format. (I may eventually do print editions, but that will be a longer process.)
I’m reusing the cover art from the UK edition we put out back in 2016. I’m also bringing the prices down a bit. The Stepsister Scheme, the first book in the series, will be $2.99. The rest will be $4.99.
Wild pre-order links are already starting to appear:
- The Stepsister Scheme: Amazon | B&N | Kobo | Google Play | iBooks | Smashwords
- The Mermaid’s Madness: Amazon | B&N | Kobo | Google Play | iBooks | Smashwords
- Red Hood’s Revenge: Amazon | B&N | Kobo | Google Play | iBooks | Smashwords
- The Snow Queen’s Shadow: Amazon | B&N | Kobo | Google Play | iBooks | Smashwords
I’ll update here and on the Bookstore page of my site as more links show up.
Much love and gratitude to everyone who’s read and enjoyed these books over the past decade or so. I hope the new editions help the stories find some new readers who’ll appreciate these kick-ass princesses.

Thank you for putting these up on Kobo drm-free. That’s one advantage of them getting away from DAW, who has no respect for ebook purchasers.

Looking forward to the new ebooks!

Sounds like it’s time for me to go back and reread them.

I really really love those covers. If you do end up releasing print editions, would you be able to use those covers for them as well? Because I would absolutely buy the series again to get physical copies with that art. They’re gorgeous. (Also if you’re ever in the mood to write some crack fic, I would absolutely read a book about Danielle, Talia, and Snow either becoming or fighting ferals. )

Steph – thank you! I did those covers, so I could definitely use them when/if I do print editions 🙂

I haven’t read them yet, so it’ll be great to buy from the author. I also like these covers. They are a little easier for me to connect with.
