Queen Mab Wins!

McDougall Previews Award for Best Fantasy Book of the Year

1st Place Fantasy Book - Reader Views Reviewers Choice Awards

I am so pleased to announce that Queen Mab has been named the best fantasy book of the year, coming in first place in the Reader Views Reviewers Choice awards and winning the McDougall Previews Award.  I feel this occasion calls for a tiara and a sash.  

*singing* Theeere sheee isssss... Miss McDougall Previews Award for Best Fantasy Book of the Year... Theeeere she issss...  *breaks down into tears while waving in the elbow-elbow-wrist-wrist-wrist fashion*

Queen Mab is available exclusively on Amazon in paperback and Kindle, and if you are a member of Amazon Prime, you can borrow it for free!

When Faunus, the god of daydreams, breaks the heart of Queen Mab, revenge can be the only answer.  Using the most powerful families in Verona, they wage their war against one another, and place their final bets upon the heads of two youths, one named Romeo and the other named Juliet.

But when Queen Mab falls in love with a gentleman named Mercutio, everything changes and she will do anything, even if it means destroying the world, to save him.  Will it be enough to stop the tragedy?  Or only spur it forward to its terrible end?

Weaving Shakespeare's original text into a dark, epic fantasy, fans of The Woodcutter will love this latest retelling by USA TODAY bestselling author Kate Danley. Experience the romance of Romeo & Juliet from a different point of view - through the eyes of the bringer of dreams... Queen Mab.

    1. Thank you, Thayer! Congratulations heartily accepted! :)

  3. See? Someone else loves her, too. :) Glad to see you using the gorgeous painted cover again.

    1. Thank you, Cherise! I feel very vindicated. Boy, it has been an uphill battle getting people to take a chance on this book... And I'm very happy to have the painted cover back, too. It was hanging over my desk the whole time I wrote Queen Mab and it felt kind of funny not being able to share that image with people.
