“Grab a fan, because the teen hormones are raging, in full, intimate detail! Red August by H.L. Brooks is not your childhood fairytale come to life, but rather a contemporary version starring an older Red, caught between womanhood and childhood. Filled with wonderfully quirky and kind secondary characters, a feisty grandmother, an ancient feud, death, misunderstandings and a cameo appearance by the Woodsman, H.L. Brooks has taken May-December romances to an entirely new level…”
My sweetie is working on a version of Rapunzel that is absolutely wonderful.
About five years ago I shot video of three short snippets of him reading excerpts from the story – which remains unfinished. He has plenty of words and skill, he just needs more hours in the day to work on them. He also edits my work and has a full time job that he often works ten to twelve hours at and requires writing all day. Which, as you can guess, is draining.
There have been some small edits since I recorded these, so perhaps this summer if I can find a day he isn’t bent over a computer slaving away at the words, I will record some new video.

I posted a few posts back about an event by The Book Rat and A Backwards Story – Fairy Tale Fortnight. It’s pretty much just an awesome online celebration of fairytales. Please go by and see what they are featuring, which by the way includes some contests for free stuff.
Which also includes a contest to give away five e-copies of my book Red August, which is coming out in August.
Go directly to that part of Fairy Tale Fortnight HERE. That page features a Safe For Work excerpt from Red August that can only be found at the Fairy Tale Fortnight page.
Below is the book synopsis or blurb.
