The big day has finally arrived, Enchanted Waters is out now, winging its way to kindles all over the world. Beautifully illustrated paperbacks are dropping onto doormats from Canada to Estonia, and everywhere in between and beyond.
This release has surpassed by far any of our wildest dreams, and we have you to thank for that. To everyone who preordered the ebook or bought the paperback, who liked and shared our social media posts, who included EW in their newsletters and reviewed it on your blogs, who told friends and family, or even just bought it to help support Oceana and the charitable initiative.
Thank you, from the bottoms of our hearts and the depths of our souls. You’ve made this release a huge success, and helped us raise hundreds of pounds (or dollars, euros, whatever!) for ocean conservation.
I’ve had the most incredible experience working alongside these amazing writers and humans for the past year, it’s made my debut year as an indie author everything I hoped it would be and so much more. So my thanks also go to Alice Ivinya, Astrid V.J., Jennifer Kropf, N.D.T. Casale, Elena Shelest, Sky Sommers and Ben Lang. Thank you for being the best coauthors a girl could ask for.
If you haven’t decided whether Enchanted Waters is your cup of tea yet, here’s the blurb and the stories included:

Any fellow audio book lovers in the house? I’ve been addicted to audio books ever since my 30 day free trial of Audible six years ago, even before I discovered (and fell in love with) podcasts.
So, when I published my debut novel, The Fair Queen, I knew I wanted to have an audio book produced. Now, with the one year bookaversary of TFQ’s release fast approaching, I’m absolutely delighted to announce that the audio book of The Fair Queen will be released this Autumn!
The process has been so much fun. Getting to listen to narrators audition by reading a short chapter of my book (chapter fourteen, for those of you who’ve read it – it’s my favourite!) was incredible, and I’m so excited to hear the first fifteen minutes when my lovely narrator reaches the first big milestone.
My fabulous cover designer is also hard at work on the audio cover version, as well as a little something that I can’t talk about yet (don’t you hate when authors do that? Sorry! It’ll be worth it, I promise).
There’ll be review copies available when release day comes around, I’ll be posting them on StoryOrigin, so if you’re interested in listening to the audio book for free in exchange for an honest review, keep your eyes peeled for the announcement in a few months!
