I’m now a published author!!!

Teapot Tales - an anthology of fairy tales

Teapot Tales is now live!!

I’m so excited. The fairy tale anthology went live this morning – see the image to see the gorgeous cover.

I have three stories in it – The Princess and the Pea, The Frog Prince and Rapunzel. I couldn’t decide only two of them, and neither could Becky or the editors. So I was lucky to get three stories.

All up there are just over 30 stories in the anthology and the print version will be out really soon. You can be sure there’s a blog post to announce it.

I am also in the process of setting up a site for my children’s books. If you want to know when it’s live, go to www.melissagijsbers.com and sign up to the email list. I won’t send many newsletters, it will mostly be announcements for when books are published.

You can also get your hands on your very own kindle copy of Teapot Tales by clicking the links below:

  5. I was considering getting the print version for Miss 7, until I sas that it a teen/YA book. So it looks like it will be for Miss 11 instead.

    • The ones I’ve read so far are OK for Mr Z, age 9, if that helps. I’ve found lately that age categories are challenging as many people can’t agree on what the age groups actually are!
