Magic Hunters is a fairytale mashup. Kind of like a young adult Land of Stories. My husband, Brad, wrote the first drafts, and I’m revising them for Kindle Vella in a weekly, serialized format. Here is the description for the first book in what will be a trilogy:
Hunter, the son of the huntsman who nearly killed Snow White, is tired of the shame that labels his family. In desperation, he makes a wish upon a magic mirror, accidentally unleashing a curse that eradicates magic from the Story Realms. In order to right the wrong, Hunter sets out on an epic quest to find a wizard who can restore the magic that was lost and return the Story Realms to normal.
You can access Magic Hunters either on Amazon.com in the Kindle Vella department or you can open the Kindle App and search for the story there. For now the story will only be available on the Amazon website and the app, and only in America. Sorry! For those of you who only read paperback, it will release in that format next year. The full book will also be available on Kindle at that time, as well. Click here to learn more about Magic Hunters.
