Sweet Talk with the Sweet Sixteens: August 23rd

Welcome to Week Thirty-Four of Sweet Talk with the Sweet Sixteens! To see more details about Sweet Talk as well as previous posts, see the introduction post. Thanks to Charlene (Bookish Whimsy), for designing the banner and button for Sweet Talk.

Today, I'm featuring the authors and books publishing during the week of August 23rd!

The Questions:

1. Describe your debut novel in sixteen words.
2. Pitch your book! For fans of _____, _____ meets _____, etc.
3. What are you working on now – is it related to your debut novel?

The Authors:

Bridget Hodder, Author of The Rat Prince

1. The Prince of the Rats becomes Cinderella's coachman in a most magical, romantic, and unexpected adventure!

2. If you liked The Legend of Zelda; if you thrill (secretly or openly) at Disney movies; if you like reading the words "Happily Ever After"...you and your friends will find THE RAT PRINCE both delicious and nutritious. 

3. I have a couple of secret projects in the works-- one related to THE RAT PRINCE-- and the other one goes in a completely new direction!

2. For fans of behind-the-scenes stories, Unscripted Joss Byrd is the Natalie Portman movie Anywhere But Here meets Brooke Shield’s memoir, There Was a Little Girl.

  7. Yay for lovely looking books :D The Rat Prince looks so cute. Not sure if I really wish to read it, lol, but cute :)

  8. Gotta be honest, The Rat Prince isn't a book I'd normally read. HOWEVER.....after seeing this interview and knowing that it's about this little obscure character from a beloved tale -- I think it sounds great!
