Twelve Dances is coming out tomorrow through Devine Destinies. The story combines two of my favorite traditional tales, The Nutcracker and The Twelve Dancing Princesses, and I had so much fun writing it. I've worn out my welcome with cover puzzles, but give this one a shimmer and see if you like it better. :D

Some dreams are too good to be true. Is Clara's too true to be good?
When Clara adds a brand new nutcracker to her favorite Christmas collection, she immediately starts having vivid, recurring dreams about her twelve wooden princes. As the holiday nears, her infatuation with the new nutcracker grows into a flirtation that sets the rest of the little soldiers against her. Dancing through an impossibly real battle in her sleep and dodging her infuriating family during the day, Clara’s holidays take a spin toward disaster. If she can survive both and make it to Christmas Eve in one piece, will Clara get to dance with the one prince she actually wants? And even if she does, what happens when the holiday passes, and the nutcrackers are packed away for another year?
