The copy edits are done. It’s off to the line editor for the final type-oh check. ETA July!!! (On the off-chance anyone reading this hasn’t spent quality time in airports waiting for flights, ETA means Estimated Time of Arrival. And if you are reading that and going, “Ohhhh, that’s what that means,” I envy you.)
Crimson has a strategy for surviving high school. Blend in. Don’t cause trouble.
It works pretty well–until her sixteenth birthday when her long-lost father shows up and all hell breaks loose.
It turns out that he is a demon king, which makes Crimson…a princess. Of Darkness.
Her castle is a sulfur-reeking cavern underground. Her Princess Training has nothing to do with tea and crumpets. Prince Charming isn’t rushing in to save her. And, to top it off, she still has to go to high school.
She can’t tell anyone the truth, not even her best friends. To survive, she will have to risk everything and use a cunning she didn’t know she possessed. And even then there’s no guarantee she or anyone she cares about will be alive tomorrow–for neither Hell nor high school comes with a manual.
Liz Jasper here again. Crimson in the Very Wrong Fairy Tale is a YA (Young Adult) book. That basically means it’s written for teens but adults ignore that and read it anyways. At least that’s what I do. Crimson in the Very Wrong Fairy Tale is the first in a three book series. It will be available in trade paperback and as an ebook. And, yes, I’m back to writing the Underdead books now. The Underdead series will have at least two more books.
And as a special note for Father’s Day, thank you Dad for supporting my writing in your own, special Liz’s Dad way–by giving me all the reference books you can get your sticky fingers on and then telling everyone you know to buy everything I publish. You Rock. Special dinner tonight for you!
Woot Woot!!! A new book and the added excellent news that there will be at least two more Underdead books! Can it get any better?
Jude–you totally made my day! Thanks for all that!!
Now, I know it comes as NO surprise and over-the-top excited I am about this. I ADORE this book. Yes, people, I was lucky to read an early version and I’ve been waiting for you all to have the chance to fall in love with Crimson! Be ready to love her. She ROCKS!!!!!
Thanks Ging! I swear I can hear your shout from here. :))) I have one more (loaded) (happily) word for you: ninja!
In the underworld
Is there no escape from school?

Mike, that’s just…perfect. I am cracking up and bowing to your greatness! I’m going to steal that. Do you mind? I’m totally going to have to do a back cover copy in haiku now. It just needs to be done!
