Victoria Leybourne was born in England but grew up in an assortment of fantasy worlds, and wanted to be either a writer or a Disney princess when she grew up. She’s pretty happy with the way things have turned out, although she still tries her luck singing to woodland creatures now and then, just in case they feel like washing her dishes.

I'm working on The Murano Glass Slipper right now and I'm hoping to release it later this year. It's a retelling of Cinderella, featuring Faustina's friend Chiara (whom you met at the beginning of The Rose and the Mask) and a guy called Domenico, a not-quite Prince who's about to regret making a bet with Giacomo Casanova. I'll announce the release date on my blog/Twitter/Facebook/mailing list as soon as I have it, so do follow one of those if you'd like to :)

Thanks so much for your question, it was great to hear from you!(less)

I am, as my editor has pointed out to me, prone to hyperbole (which was THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS ACCUSATION I HAVE EVER HEARD… oh, wait) so when I get writer’s block I usually just stare at my computer for a few hours, convinced that I’ve peaked, that I’ll never write again, that I never should have started writing in the first place, and then wander off to play video games.

Productive answer: Of course, I do get out of the slump eventually, and usually it’s by forcing myself to be ruthlessly sensible. Step one is to figure out what the problem is, what’s stopping me from writing. Usually, it’s that I’ve plotted my characters into a corner, and I can’t figure out how to get them from where they are to where they need to be for the story to continue. Fixing that often requires deleting a scene or two to get them back on track – and I usually discover that, deep-down, I already knew that and just didn’t want to believe it. But actually finishing a book is so much bigger and better than any one scene so, in the end, my darlings get killed and I’m back to work.(less)

Hello Goodreads! How is everyone?

Personally, I'm super nervous, because I have a book coming out this month. It's called Rescuing the Prince, and it's a sweet contemporary royal romance. I'm so excited (and nervous) about this book, and I can't wait to share it with you.

In fact, I got so excited while writing it that I accidentally wrote a 27,000-word prequel to it. It features a different (but... Read more of this blog post »
