  1. I’ve read two recently you might like (and they’re not long, so a plus while you’re writing): Dragon’s Curse by H. L. Burke and Pippa of Lauramore by Shari L. Tapscott. I hesitate to recommend my YA fantasy, Mercy’s Prince, but it fits under several of your categories (it’s just pretty long).


    1. Thank you so much for the suggestions! I have been looking for more indie books to read so this is perfect. Pippa of Lauramore sounds just like my cup of tea! Dragon’s Curse sounds intriguing too. 🙂 Your book, Mercy’s Prince, sounds absolutely amazing. Seriously. Definitely adding to my reading list!


  2. Thanks so much, Kay! BTW, I just finished the 4th and final book in the Dragon’s Curse series. There were a few times I wished they books were longer so they could flesh out some of the characters and situations, but the final scene of the last book is SO worth reading the whole series. It’s a lovely fairy tale fantasy and a fairly quick read for each book. 🙂


  3. You might like L.A. Meyer’s Jacky Faber series. The first book is about the heroine as a little girl who becomes an orphan and cross dresses as a boy to survive. The heroine is clever and flirtatious and makes many friends and enemies. It’s one of my favorite series. ^x^
