SPOILER ALERT!

Sadly, he did not. Some of the scattered princes were killed by the Queen and the Gentlemen and some chose to marry the Dancing Ladies and join that side. Of those who were saved and found true love, it was Iron Shoes and her prince (East of the Sun/West of the Moon), Rapunzel and her prince (Prince Charming), and Maid Maleen (True Bride) and her Duke (Rumpelstiltskin).(less)

Thanks for the great question! As of this moment, no. I was all geared up to do it, and then ACX (the only company us indies can distribute through) cut the royalty rates from 90% to 35%. So, in addition to having to foot close to a $7,000 production bill to pay for producers, voice over artists, sound editors, and rehearsal space, there was then the royalty cut, and THEN I heard from a bunch of other authors who sank a lot of money into audiobooks that something changed and sales dried up. So if the market turns around again or royalties return to what they were or if Google comes out with an ACX competitor, I would consider it. But not at this time.(less)

“And in a terrible moment, though her body chose to fight the monster that was stalking her, her soul refused such a death and leap from her body to continue its flight.”
Kate Danley, The Woodcutter

“Educational system in America is not as good as in China. You may be an idiot. It is hard to tell with you white people.”
Kate Danley, Maggie for Hire

“Her breath caught in her throat, for she heard the clatter of death waiting to fall.”

“Try to avoid getting involved with somebody who's gonna need killing before it's over. It may seem to you that that narrows the field somewhat, but be diligent. ”
Jill Conner Browne, The Sweet Potato Queens' Book of Love

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”
Ira Glass

“It's hard to make something that's interesting. It's really, really hard. It's like a law of nature, a law of aerodynamics, that anything that's written or anything that's created wants to be mediocre. The natural state of all writing is mediocrity... So what it takes to make anything more than mediocre is such an act of will...”
Ira Glass
