The Official Release of THE FAERIE PRINCE, the Favorite Fairytale Prince Blog Fest, and a Giveaway!

Happy book birthday to my newest baby, The Faerie Prince! Woohoo! I'm so excited for people to read it (and since I uploaded it a few days ago to make sure it was ready in time, a number of people have already found it!). If you're keen to read it, you can find it at the following places online, plus a few others:






~  ~  ~

In celebration of today's release, there's a blog fest happening where you get to tell people who your favorite faerie tale prince/hero is and why.

There are soooo many choices of awesome princes and heroes, both old and modern, and if I wrote this at a different time, I'd probably pick a different one. But right now, I'm going with ...


Flynn Rider from the animated movie Tangled


Why? I'm a big fan of the flawed character who messes up and then has to somehow redeem himself in order to win the love of the princess/heroine. After all, no one is perfect, right? Flynn Rider (a.k.a. Eugene Fitzherbert) starts out as little more than a thief. He thinks he can play Rapunzel with his infamous Smolder, but Rapunzel knocks him out with a frying pan instead (I'm also a fan of the heroine with guts!). Flynn agrees to take Rapunzel to see the floating lights purely for his own gain. But along the way, something changes ... He becomes a good guy. In typical hero fashion, Flynn/Eugene rescues Rapunzel from the evil enchantress. He and Rapunzel get married and live happily ever after--with much humor along the way.



So who's your favorite fairytale prince/hero? Sign up below and tell us between now and Sunday June 2nd!




In celebration, The Faerie Guardian is on sale for a limited time!


**GIVEAWAY**

There will be a giveaway running from now until the end of the blog tour (Sun 9 June). A giveaway where FOUR people could win something! The prizes are a signed copy of The Faerie Prince (or The Faerie Guardian, should the winner prefer that), an Amazon gift card, a mini book pendant and necklace, and a Creepy Hollow pin badge. Check out the pic below!
Giveaway is open internationally

Congratulations, Rachel! I already bought a copy of your book yesterday. Can't wait to read it!

I never had a favorite Disney prince character, but my favorite prince character from a very non-Disney cartoon is Prince Gumball from Adventure Time. I won't blog about it since nobody knows who the heck he is!

Rachel Morgan said...

Yay, thank you for buying a copy! And I have no idea who Prince Gumball is, haha!!

Happy Release Day!

I giggle every time I see that dude from Tangled because one of my friends said it's how she pictures one of the MCs in my book Game On! Personally, I don't see it LOL!

Natalie Aguirre said...

Happy Release! A big congrats to you.

Juliana Haygert said...

Aw, love Flynn! And Rapunzel!

Congrats on the release, Rachel!

Tangles is a family favorite in our house. Flynn is a great character. I'm still working on my Smolder look.

Cherie Reich said...

Congratulations! I loved The Faerie Prince and can't wait for the next book!

Flynn is definitely flawed. Even though I kind of slay him in my post as the wrong choice versus my choice, he still is heroic in that he almost died protecting Rapunzel. Great choice Rachel and thanks for hosting this blogfest.

Also congrats on your latest book release!

Sarah McCabe said...

Flynn was full of charm and charisma, I like him. Also the fact that he seems to be inspired by Errol Flynn, who I love!

Adriana Dascalu said...

You're a fan of flawd characters, i'm a fan of good bad boys ;) those who make decissions for others in difficult situations. :)

Loved Flyn, he's funny.

Carrie Butler said...

Congratulations! :)

Emilyann Girdner said...

So excited for you Rachel! The Faerie Prince is amazing :) Love, love, love this book and can't wait to share the review soon :)


On a side note... great prince pick too. That is such a cute movie!

Rachna Chhabria said...

Congrats Rachel. Excited and thrilled for you.

Trisha F said...

I totally agree with your Flynn pick - he is super cute for sure! I didn't pick him in my entry for the blogfest but he's still one of my faves for sure. And I just love Tangled - I saw it on a plane flight and fell in love with it. :)

Krista McLaughlin said...

Congratulations Rachel! Super excited for you! I have my review all ready to go for you! :) Flynn is a great choice, but he's not my favorite. :)
