I’m so happy to say that the reaction to Sacrifice has been overwhelmingly positive! That creates a huge sense of relief in me–I love writing stories, but in particular I love writing stories that enchant or entertain. I want to create stories that people enjoy, so release day is always a strange mixture of joy and apprehension for me, because that’s when I find out if I succeeded or not.
Thank you, Champions, for your patience in waiting for Sacrifice! The Snow Queen series was a bit of an experiment because it’s the first fairy tale to span more than one book. I really enjoyed having the extra book to bring in new characters and to dig deeper into old favorites–like Phile and Oskar. What did you guys think of the two-book fairy tale? Did you like it more or less? Was it about the same? Rakel faces a heck of a lot more oppression than say Cinderella or Elle, so I feel like this two-book system wouldn’t work for many of my fairy tales–like the upcoming Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty–but I have other stories in mind for similar treatment, so I am curious to hear what you think about it.
Observations aside, you Champions have unlocked the first Snow Queen short: Throne of the Snow Queen–which takes place the summer after Rakel first wakes up. I hope you enjoy it! Thank you, everyone, who took the time to review Sacrifice! Reviews play a bit role in book visibility, so I appreciate it, and your valuable feedback.
That’s all for today! Thank you for reading, Champions, and thank you for all your lovely messages. They never fail to encourage me. 🙂
