Gown of Harmonies: Novelette

Author: Francesca Forrest

Summary: Blind seamstress Grazia has an ambitious plan to create a ballgown that can make music, but to do so, she must make a dangerous bargain with a fairy weaver.

Available in: ebook (Amazon, B&N, Kobo, Apple) and audiobook (Audible, iTunes/Apple, Amazon)

Genres: fantasy, fairy tale

Notes about book: This story was originally published in the anthology It Happened at the Ball, edited by Sherwood Smith, but I'm releasing it as a stand-alone to raise money for the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts, which is facing a huge increase in demand due to pandemic-caused unemployment. If you read/listen and enjoy it, please spread the word!

Summary: Collapse )

Available in: Kindle

Genres: urban fantasy

Notes about book/series: I've read the first trilogy. It's an urban fantasy series starring an autistic, bisexual girl.

The writing style is fanfic-y. Book 2 was definitely the best of the 3, with a curse bringing fairy tales into real life.

For more autistic, bisexual representation, check out Failure to Communicate by Kaia Sønderby (also self-published).

Summary:Collapse )
Available in: ebook, paperback
Genres: science fiction | novella | action/adventure | dystopian
Notes about book/series: This is a short and sweet novella that's straight up adventure in outer space and on other worlds. There's no romance in this one, which is unusual for me and was cracking good fun to write. You will also find a grumpy cat, new creatures, and one dastardly group determined to ruin everyone’s day. I had a lot of fun writing this one. ^_^

Summary: Collapse )

Available in: paperback, Kindle, Audible

Genres: fantasy, m/m

Notes about book/series: In Book 1, the protagonists are students; in Book 2, they're working adults. I liked that, it's actually pretty rare.

The story takes place in the 19th century and has the lovely language to go with it.
