Launch Party: The Servants and the Beast

The new novella from Stonehenge Circle Writers, The Servants and the Beast, launched on Friday, June 28th.  We hosted a launch party with all five authors of this collaborative novella.  The authors signed books and gave a short presentation on how they came to write this very special book.

If you’re now regretting that you weren’t there, we’ll have a video up soon of the presentation!  Today, we’re delighted to share some great photos from this wonderful event.

And don’t forget to get your own copy of The Servants and the Beast!

Release Day: The Servants and the Beast

It’s here!  We’re thrilled to announce the release of The Servants and the Beast.  This very special collaborative novel was written by five of our authors, and tells the tale of the Beast in a whole new way.  Buy your copy today!

You think you know the story – prince gets cursed, girl meets Beast, they fall in love and live happily ever after. If only it was that simple. But dating is tough even in the best of circumstances.

Ever since the fateful day when we let that horrible Good Fairy into the castle, our lives have been on hold. When she turned our bad-tempered prince into a Beast, she lumped us, his loyal servants, into the curse too, just because she assumed his rude behavior was our fault. Theodore the butler should never have let her inside, and the rest of us should have helped bar the door.

Now Theodore is an armchair, and we’re all trying to carry on our duties as a piano, a coat rack, a bookcase and the like. At least we have Robert to clean up the pink sparkles piling in the corners from the Good Fairy’s curse, since he’s a mop now.  We know we just need the Beast to fall in love to break the spell. We’re all doing whatever we can to help him find True Love, one visitor at a time, hoping the right person finally comes along–but will the Beast ever learn to love?
