Whew! If you're keeping up, you know that today is the day Season 2, Episode 2 releases, continuing Queen Ariel's story. By now, you're probably following the pattern: we are releasing an episode every other day. We'll continue to do this until all ten stories have been told! This project was a HUGE undertaking! Starting with the artistry of the uber-talented Jo Michaels, who hand drew each of the queen's shoes, colored them beautifully, and then set them into the various backgrounds to create the unique covers for each book. They are truly works of art! Don't believe me? Check them out...
In addition to the 10 seasons (30 episodes!), we also produced the War & Pieces Frayed Fairy Tales coloring book. Have you seen it? You can color each queen's shoe to your liking, and there's even a blank heel to design your own. The beautifully detailed title pages were designed by the amazing N.L. Greene. This will make a lovely accompaniment as you read the stories, or a thoughtful gift for the fashionista in your life.
Last, but not least, if you're like me, you enjoy a multi-sensory experience while reading. I love a good cup of coffee or tea and a scented candle to evoke the story's setting. While we don't have candles for our series, we do have TEA! There is a tea blend for each queen on Adagio Teas. They're part of the War & Pieces Frayed Fairy Teas fandom. My personal favorite is the Rapunzel blend - chocolate, caramel and orange. Yummy and refreshing! You can get the small tins and try them all.
Now, if you've stuck with me this far, you HAVE to take a minute or two and enter the Rafflecopter. I'll be giving away a special gift pack of War & Pieces surprises, including a copy of the coloring book and Season 1, Episode 1. Good luck!
