Giveaway: 2 ebooks for Diamond And Toads

Diamonds and Toads: A Modern Fairy Tale
By K.E. Saxon


Once upon a time, there were two sisters, one blessed,and one cursed by fairy magic...

So each sister's story begins.

Delilah Perrault is blessed with riches beyond her wildest dreams and the man she's had her eye on for ages--even though he secretly has designs on her newfound wealth instead. Delilah's half-sister, Isadora, is cursed with having her every utterance come out as an obscene and humiliating quip, just when the gorgeous hunk she dumped years before under pressure from mama swaggers back into her life.

If you like Bewitched, Sex and the City and Gossip Girl, try out this modern girl's fairy tale.

Get it Amazon for the Kindle or on Smashwords and at BN for the Nook

And now for a guest post by K. E. Saxon!!!

Good morning, readers! Today I thought I’d share my top ten romance movies that employ magic in them. But first, let me give you a short description of the story:

Inspired by the Gordon Laite illustrations in my childhood book, My Little Golden Book of Fairy Tales, and with a nod to the 17th century author of the fairy tale, Charles Perrault, DIAMONDS & TOADS is a modern take on the tale of the same name, but with more emphasis on the love story. Crossing genres between hot/steamy contemporary, comedy, and fantasy romance, it is written in two parts, the first concentrating on the "good" Perrault sister, who is blessed by the family fairy with a fortune from diamonds and an engagement to the man of her dreams, while the second concentrates on the "bad" Perrault sister, her curse (her every utterance an obscene and humiliating quip), and her “frogman” ex-lover. In both parts, the fairy’s often comical appearances and maneuverings serve to further the plots to their “happily-ever-after” conclusions.

And now, on to my movies list!

Top Ten Romance Movies that employ magic:

1. Simply Irresistible
2. Stardust

Congrats for your book's release! It sounds awesome.

I really loved A Midsummer Night's Dream. Then again, I'm a Shakespeare fan and performed in a community theater production of it. :)

Janet said...

That book sounds like a lot of fun!

K.E. Saxon, Author said...

Thanks, Cherie and Janet!

And, Cherie, I love Shakespeare, too, and definitely agree with your addition to the list. "If these shadows have offended, think but this and all is mended: That you have but slumbered here, while these visions did appear..." Did I get it right? I was in high school drama and loved the character of Puck!
