Sunday Surprise – #8Sunday

Hello and Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors, the blog hop where writers from a wide variety of genres share excerpts from their work in ten sentences or less. This is my first post on this wonderful blog hop, so let’s cut to the chase and start that excerpt from Beautiful. This is Sleeping Beauty revised as m/m romance on my secondary world of Silvery Earth.


Something was very wrong. He shouldn’t have slept that soundly.

Maybe the kiss had done it. Tied him to that crazy prince. He decided to get away from the tavern without breakfast…

But his feet brought him to the main room where Rithvik joined him with a bright smile.

“I thought there would be a barber in the inn, but nobody is willing to shave me. Will you do it?” the prince asked.

Beautiful blurb:

Kerrien prided himself on never getting lost, not even in the deepest, darkest forest. That skill came in handy when tracking someone. It gave him an edge over whomever he was looking for. But he sometimes was taken by surprise by what he found.
Kissing a prince awake might not be the smartest thing Kerrien ever did in his life. Especially since heโ€™s now stuck with the beautiful sleeper with a puppy disposition, and has no idea of who sent him to sleep and why.
Feeling a stray cat himself, can Kerrien put up with the young prince demands? Cats and dogs are not supposed to get along, do they?
A fairy tale retelling, a sweet m/m romance, a Silvery Earth novel.

Get the e-book or the brand new illustrated paperback. Beautiful is also included in Fairy Tales Revisited on Silvery Earth.

  1. Great snippet!


  2. I love this take on the fairy tale; getting stuck with the prince! I’m a fan of reimagined fairy tales myself, currently working on an m/m Snow White.


    • this is the longest of the fairy tales revisited and it’s mostly about the maybe happily ever after! ๐Ÿ˜‰ The other two are Snow White (Colors) and Cinderella (Cinder Boy) – all 3 revised as sweet m/m romance… currently working on Beau and the Beast and Little Merman! ๐Ÿ˜‰


  3. Oh, using the word ‘puppy’ is perfect. That really defines his behavior. Love the premise of this tale!

    Welcome, Barb!! What a great intro to your writing! Love his grumbling and the prince’s playful cluelessness. I sense a fairytale romance about to bloom!


    • Thank YOU! I found them through your Goodreads newsfeed! ๐Ÿ™‚


  7. Welcome, Warrior! I’ve heard of people having “a close shave” while trying to escape, but this gives a whole new meaning to the phrase.
