Beauty Queen is Here!

Whatever After 7: Beauty Queen is now available in stores! Yay!

This time, the magic mirror sucks Abby and Jonah into the story of Beauty and the Beast. When Jonah angers the Beast by picking flowers from his garden, he becomes the Beast's prisoner! Abby has to save her brother by finding Beauty, whom the Beast will surely fall in love with, right? NOPE. The Beast doesn't like Beauty, so it's up to Abby and her brother to match-make this reluctant pair and fix this fractured fairy tale before things get pretty ugly!

I'll be on tour for the next few weeks, and have a TON of events coming up, so check out my tour page to see if I'm coming to a town near you. Say hi if you're nearby!
