Sleeping Handsome

A prince’s world is turned upside down when he realizes that everything he knew to be true was…what? A lie? How can it be a lie when those who tell it believe it?

Prince Eugene grew up under the care of his loving parents, king and queen of the realm of Zarin. In a few short years he was destined to take over his kingdom. One night, everything changes when he is ripped from the world he knew into the lost realm of Dorin, where almost anything is possible. He he discovers magic and beautiful as well as dangerous creatures, gaining friends and allies along the way. But a certain wicked witch blocks his path, and he learns that he has a history with her. Should he destroy her, or try to save a soul already lost?

A little over 7 years ago, I had an idea for a book that I wanted to write. That was back before I had given up on my dream about writing. Since September of 2015, Sleeping Handsome has been in the works again – this time for real. I hope that once I’m done, others will enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it! It feels amazing to finally write something without giving up, without the thought in the back of my head that I may not be good enough (okay, that’s still there), or that I’m just making a fool of myself. That is a crucial part, though. When I am writing I am exposing myself, and once others get their hands on my work, there’s no taking it back. So I had to stop doubting myself. I had to change my thought pattern. I’m writing for me. For the time being that’s all that matters.
