The Eye of the Beholder Sneak Peek
The Eye of the Beholder was a book I started a very long time ago, and the first complete novel I'd ever written. Back when I decided to try my hand at self-publishing, I stumbled on it while digging through old manuscripts. Unlike most others, which were so bad I had no intention of embarrassing myself by publishing them, I thought The Eye would work if I spent some time revising it. I put it up on Amazon almost as a whim, wondering how it might do. My goal was lifetime sales of one hundred copies. Thousands of copies sold later, the continued interest in this book means my readers have proved to me that some tales are simply timeless and well-loved.
Of all my Fairytale Collection novels, The Eye of the Beholder adheres most to the traditional tale, but it also contains a twist. The beauty and the beast tale has always been my favorite fairy tale, but I hadn't yet found a tale that portrayed the beast's side of the story, and that's what I set out to do with my book.
