The Ugly Duckling

I am hijacking my own day to post in order to announce my new book:






It is currently available for less than a dollar on Amazon.  The price won't stay this low for long, so get it now!

It is a revision of The Best Friend, previously published on this site.  It is about 30-40% new material, so if you loved the original and want to know more about how Will got injured or his previous relationships, it's all in here!

From the back cover:

What would you do to get your happily ever after?

Libby Saunders, who spent the first seventeen years of her life as an ugly duckling, bleaches her hair and drops forty pounds in order to get her fairytale ending. Once she evolves into a beautiful swan, the handsome princes are tripping each other’s royal steeds in order to get a date with her. But while the princes in fairy tales may be perfect gentlemen, Libby finds that her real life princes tend to be somewhat less than perfect. Actually, they tend to be a bunch of two-timing jerks.
 

Will Kaplan, the roommate of Libby’s latest boyfriend, is definitely not her idea of a handsome prince. He’s missing a cleft in his chin, he doesn’t have a British accent or even a French or Italian accent, and he rides a wheelchair rather than a white stallion. But the more Libby gets to know Will, the more she starts to wonder if handsome princes are really all they’re cracked up to be. And maybe a nice, ordinary drake is the only one who can give a former ugly duckling the happily ever after she’s been waiting for.

  3. Oh my gosh!!!! I LOVED The Best Friend!!! Eeeeee!!! AND it's more fleshed out?!?! Kinda hated Libby though if I remember she was so dumb. But then I thought about it, when you've been treated so bad it's what you're used too. Totally going to go get it!

    1. One of the things I changed (or attempted to) in this revision is Libby's likability. Please let me know if I was successful :-)

  5. Boight it and read it straight away! Loved it. Read the original twice and agree that Libby is much more likeable this time around. I love the changes to her outlook and the background to her quirks. Also much preferred how it plays out with Jude. Seemed more realistic somehow. Anyway, really really enjoyed it as I do all of your writing x
