How exciting! I'm sure coming up with your own ideas for a fairytale is great fun!:) And there's five books planned in your series?
Yes, I agree. Original works would be harder to gain traction in the reader world. Retellings have the advantage there! It sounds smart to release some of each. I hope you do well with both.:)

Thanks, Lesa! Yes, the fairytales have been around for a long time for a reason, they really stick with people well! The original novels are somewhat different, set in a different world with a lot less "fairytale-ness" to it, more closer to a historical tale that isn't actually... but they are also a lot of fun to work with!
The characters in each set are really fun to be around, creative-wise!
