Andora Paperback + Snow Shoot

I'm thrilled to be sharing with you all that Andora's Folly is now available in paperback! It snowed at my house (?!?!?!?) giving me the perfect opportunity to get you in the Christmassy mood and stun you with the beauty of my books among the snow. There's still time to get them before Christmas!


Andora's Folly was published on Kindle back in July. I simply didn't want to mess with jumping through all the hoops that only come with a paperback. It was just as well because this one did prove quite tricky to get all the details right on. Victoria Lynn was super patient and helpful with working out the full cover and interior formatting quirks. I couldn't be happier with the teency end result!

Here's the cover and blurb for you one more time since it's been a while.



A Pandora's Box retelling

Andora is a beautiful young woman with insatiable curiosity. Raised in splendor, she is spoiled by her privileged life. When a love letter is slid under her door, her life takes a drastically unromantic turn. Nothing makes sense—her arranged marriage, the gifts her parents bestow on her wedding day, or her new husband’s temperament. \

As Andora begins to unravel the mysteries around her, she ignites a chain of events that have the power to sabotage her entire village forever. Only her new-found wisdom as a desperate peasant's wife can save her from her folly.

Annnnd here are all the links to click: 

Is it worth buying in a paperback? ABSOLUTELY! Yes, it's tiny. Perfect for a stocking stuffer xD It's petite and adorable and has lovely interior formatting and a matte cover that I never want to let go of. So YES. You know you want the paperback. It's affordable, I promise!

If you've already read the book you should still buy a paperback can leave me a review on Amazon! Already got one up on Goodreads? Just copy and paste. Yes, Amazon's weird about purchase verification and who they let review. Use your parents' account if you have to! (I do.) And thank you guys SO much for the 14 reviews that are already up. That's actually more than Martin Hospitality!

In case I have failed at my self-promotion attempts and have yet to convince you of the necessity of my little novella, just ... just ...




I still can't believe my eyes. My books. And SNOW. In December. Inches of it. (Forgive me, I live quite south.) It was like going to Narnia with my children. xDD Yes, MH got pics, too. But I'm hoarding those for now ^.^

Thank you guys immensely for the support. I'll be sharing this post around on social media, so if you feel lead to comment, reshare, or write that review I'd be super grateful!!

If you want a chance to get to know more about me and/or my books, I'm participating in TWO Facebook events this coming week! The Twelve Writers of Christmas hosted by Laura A. Grace and featuring interracting with 12 awesome authors and 2017 New Writers' Showcase hosted by Annie Twitchell featuring 7 authors works. I promise great giveaways at both events. I hope to see you there!

  1. I forgot you live in Texas, too! Wasn't the snow amazing! I loved it. It came down so heavy, it was crazy. This doesn't happen around here, it was so beautiful! And you book looks so stunning! That cover is fantastic!! If you don't mind me asking, how did you go about getting a cover made? (I'm asking around because I'm trying to figure out what I'm going to do.)
    These pictures are gorgeous! And your book looks like it was made to have pictures in the snow! :)
    Congrats on the paperback version. Now I want it even more! XD
    *adds to endless TBR list*

    1. I forgot YOU live in Texas! xD It was stunning o.o

      I used Anika Joy for the Kindle cover (just the front). She's a friend and offered her services. When I was ready for a wrap-around paperback, I used my friend Victoria Lynn who offered me a deal since it would help her build her portfolio. The key for me is either using a friend that I know I can trust their integrity and who I won't offend by asking them to redo things, OR to use someone one of my friends has been happy with. Pricing also comes into play, of course. ;) I hope that helps!

      Ha, thanks. I must have looked like a crazy person running all over the yard with a stack of books haha xD YES my plan is working!!!! }:D

    1. Thanks, Ashley!! <3 I really loved how the pictures turned out -- it was quite the balancing act. Well it's back into the 70s right now so ... fickle Texas :P Merry Christmas to you, too!

  3. Congrats on your paperback release, Abi!
    Wasn't yesterday amazing? We ended up getting about eight inches of snow. I had so much fun playing in it (as much as I could anyway...I'm sick :( )
    It was so pretty and magical, I felt like I was stepping into Narnia.

    1. Oh my goodness!! That's a lot of snow. o.o I think we probably got around 3 inches. Which is still a LOT more than usual. Narnia is what it made me think of too! I couldn't stop staring at it. It was so surreal xD

      Aw, that's no fun! I hope you're feeling better. My little brothers spiked a fever for a few days after being out in it. :/

  7. Andora's Folly looks great in the snow! XD I am so jealous of your amount of snow right now, everything here is patches of dry ice and brown! I can't realllyyyyy complain because it's been so ridiculously warm (all pluses every day for a couple weeks) but it's not Christmassy!!

    1. Thank you! It's so crazy that we had more than Canada at the time xD Almost any time it snows here it's patchy and ugly because the grass still shows and it just ends up icy. SO IT WAS OUR TURN FOR BEAUTY!! XD Above freezing has got to be really nice, but as it's in the 70s here right now ( -_- ) it's not feeling to Christmassy here either. Thank goodness I think we'll get cold again before the actual day! Texas is so temperamental xD
