COVER REVEAL: DIAMOND by Kirsten Fichter and MISFORTUNE by Kendra E. Ardnek!

Hey everyone!  Today is a special dual cover reveal post for two upcoming Rapunzel retellings: Diamond by Kirsten Fichter and Misfortune by Kendra E. Ardnek!  If you know me, you know I've been obsessed with the story of Rapunzel ever since I was of COURSE I had to participate in this cover reveal!  Both of these books sound like really unique retellings, so I'm interested to read them and I'm excited to share about them with you! 

Both of these books are releasing on May 13th, a bit less than a month away, and you can preorder now.  So without further ado...


Misfortune - Kendra E. Ardnek 

Is the safety of a country worth the sacrifice of one girl - even if she is the daughter of blood and misfortune?  
The day she was born, her kingdom fell, and so she was branded the daughter of blood and misfortune and locked away.  Now a dragon plagues the land and her curse may be the only thing that stops it.  

But is she really cursed?

Kendra E. Ardnek is the self-proclaimed Arista of Fairy Tales.  She lives in the Piney Woods of East Texas with her dragon babies and massive herd of mini-giraffes, and she is still waiting for one of her fifty nutcrackers to come to life and marry her.  When not writing, you can usually find her sitting in a random box, and she's frequently known to act before she thinks. 


Diamond - Kirsten Fichter

This time, Rapunzel's not the one stuck in the tower, but the secrets he brings with him may cost her own life. 
Diamond leads a quiet life with the woman she calls Mother. There isn't much to pass the time save for excursions in the forest and one-sided conversations with her pet rabbit, Hobie. Men are cruel beings who care only for themselves and must be avoided at any cost. After all, Diamond's own father gambled her away once. What other terrible fates might await her if people knew she existed?

Seth Stendahl is an alchemist with a middling proficiency in the Rohesian tongue. After growing up with and surviving six sisters, there shouldn't be anything too difficult for him to master - except maybe breaking his leg and being locked in the top of a ruined watchtower.  

This is Rapunzel with a twist like you've never seen it before.
