When sickness swept through Bronwen’s family, it took the life of her father, brother, and sister, and left her permanently crippled. On the stormy eve of her sixteenth birthday, a faerie-witch gifts her a pair of enchanted shoes. Bronwen slips them on and is healed--but only when the shoes are on her feet. Her grace and beauty catches the eye of the king’s son--Urien, a handsome young man who prides himself on having everything perfect.
When Rhys, an old acquaintance and Captain of the Guard, recognizes Bronwen, he threatens to tell Urien her secret. Desperate to keep her deformity hidden and not to lose the love of handsome Urien, Bronwen quickly finds herself tangled in a web of lies and deceit.
Julie Daines advice for aspiring writers.
*Write the book that’s in your heart—not what others tell you is popular or selling.
That’s the best way to get a great story.
* Decide how you want to publish (big 6, small/regional, self) and then stick with
the plan that feels right to you.
* Listen carefully to all the feedback—positive and negative. Even if you don’t
agree with some negative feedback, there is a reason the reader mentioned
it. Figure out why and fix it.
* FINISH THE BOOK. Don’t get bogged down, keep going.
* Read the best books. Not just your friends’ books, but the books that are winning awards. Read at a level you want to aspire to. And read with purpose, pay attention to what the author is doing.
