A Royal Masquerade Blog Tour and Giveaway

new graphic.png

Author Allison Tebo is releasing a second book in her humorous fairy tale series! I’m not a fairy tale person, but I LOVED her first book, The Reluctant Godfather. I’m looking forward to enjoying A Royal Masquerade as well! Allison has such a quirky and witty way of communicating deep spiritual messages in a fun story!

BOOK SYNOPSIS

book cover

Burndee can barely tolerate the mischievous Prince Colin, but the two of them are invariably thrown together in a way that keeps them at one another’s throats.

While attending a noblewoman’s wedding, Burndee and Colin’s private feud comes to a climax when Burndee loses his temper and does the unthinkable.  With Prince Colin unable to attend to his royal duties and Burndee bound by an inconvenient spell, can the two of them work together long enough to unsnarl the mysterious goings-on around them?

A madcap and magical retelling of The Goose Girl from a unique perspective.

Pick your favorite blanket from one of these baskets here and join me on the swings.

The creaking of the chains blends with chirping of birds and the gentle whispering of the breeze, bringing a definite autumn chill. I wrap my blue and white crocheted blanket more firmly around me as readers select their blankets and find a seat. Continue reading

backpacks

Today we’re hiking the rocky trails out back to view the fall colors and perhaps find a shady nook in which to sit and read. Join me here as we are outfitted with backpacks for the day: we’ve pre-packed them with water, snacks, sunscreen, insect repellent, and a special hat. We’ve left space for your favorite books.

Readers select backpacks, don sunglasses, smother sunscreen, lace hiking boots, and set out. Grasping my walking stick, I step ahead of the group, leading the way up the rocky trail. Sunlight dances off birch leaves and moss patches. Chattering readers follow.

Silence falls as I begin sharing some of my favorite military books.
