Angela Parkhurst's The Forgotten Fairytales gets an AMAZING New Cover!!!

The Forgotten Fairytales (Forgotten Fairytales, #1)

Once upon a time, seventeen-year-old Norah Hart believed in the lure of fairy tales and happily ever afters. That was before she was forced to live in a fairy tale nightmare. 

A psychotic, couture-clad, shoe obsessed Princess.
A not-so-charming, alcoholic Prince.
A hot Big Bad Wolf that she absolutely cannot fall for—no matter how well he kisses. 

If Norah had known she’d be attending a boarding school for the nut job reincarnations of fairy tale characters, she would have insisted on going to Moscow with her father. But getting out isn’t as easy as she thought. Especially once Norah realizes she, too, is a storybook character. An Unknown. The first one in history. Soon Norah learns she has the ability to rewrite the stories, putting everyone’s Happily Ever After in jeopardy. Some princesses will do whatever it takes to protect their endings. Even if it means betraying the one closest to you.

Video Post - What One Superpower Would You Have? with Kai Strand

Hi everyone! I’m Kai Strand, author of the Super Villain Academy series. I’m here to pose a VERY important question. But first let’s talk about Supers.

Let’s just say your girlfriend (or boyfriend-whichever) is kidnapped. It’s a good thing you’re a super villain, right? With all your awesome powers and all the other supers you know, surely you’ll be holding your gf in your arms by dinnertime.

Or not.

What do you do if no one cares anymore? You can only rely on your own awesome powers. I was curious what kind of powers people would want if they could have just one. I took to the streets to ask readers like you.

Find out the awesome powers these young readers would have:

Polar Opposites: Super Villain Academy, Book 2 coming June 2014

The supers are balanced. All’s well in the super world. Right? When dogs drag Oceanus away, Jeff learns the supers are so balanced, they no longer care to get involved. The only one who seems to care is Oci’s ex-villain, ex-boyfriend, Set. With Jeff’s own powers unbalanced and spiraling out of control, he wonders if they will find Oci before he looses control completely, and if they’ll find her alive.
