Bonded Blog Tour

It's Michelle week here on the blog, and today I'm posting as part of her BONDED blog tour. First off, here's the official information about the book:

Announcing BONDED by Michelle Davidson Argyle

If you like the darker side of fairy tales, especially ones twisting in ways you wouldn’t expect, you won’t want to miss out on Bonded by Michelle Davidson Argyle. Author Elana Johnson calls this collection of three fairy tale novellas, “Magical storytelling. The only consolation when one story ends is knowing there's another one waiting” Author Chantele Sedgwick says it is, “Romantic and enchanting. Ms. Argyle has a captivating voice and beautiful writing.”

BOOK DESCRIPTION: What happened after Cinderella married her prince? How did the evil sorceress in Sleeping Beauty turn evil in the first place? Discover these stories and a world filled with magic, forbidden love, elves, sprites, dragons, and the most powerful creatures of all— the fairies —in Bonded, a collection of three fairy tale inspired novellas. Based on three fairy tales, Bonded contains a fairy tale continuation (Cinderella), a fairy tale retelling (One-Eye, Two-Eyes, Three-Eyes), and a fairy tale prequel (Sleeping Beauty).

Bonded is available now! You can find it on AmazonBarnes & Noble, and other online book retailers, both as an e-book and in print. Find it for a discounted price on the publisher’s website here:

I've had the chance to read this amazing book and loved it! Fair warning...these are DARK fairy tales, not your happily ever after Disney versions. If you're looking for stories much closer to the original and eery Grimm style with an accessibility via beautiful language, captivating characters, and a world so magical I want to be there, like, now, then this is the book for you. 

I'll leave you with a couple of pics from Bonded's book launch last night at The King's English in Salt Lake City. Good times!

So fun! and what great idea to have people dress as her MC's-Love it. Also, I read Bonded and LOVED the darker side of the fairytales (One Eyes, Two Eyes, Three Eyes was my favorite).
