In April 2017, I accepted a challenge from Anne J to rewrite the Cinderella story with my own twist. Not surprisingly, I turned a wonderful fairytale into a murder mystery.
In the story, Cinderella is framed for her father’s murder and must convince the police that she is innocent. The story was published as 10,000+ words, separated into five installments, and was entitled Cinderella & the Black Ribbon at Fostel Hall.
On February of this year, Anne J requested my permission to publish the series as part of an anthology. And as of April 11, 2018, I’ve signed on the dotted line with Anne J’s independent publishing house in South Africa, AM Publishing. The book is scheduled for release in South Africa by August 2018, with the possibility of release in the United States. Fingers crossed!
I know, I know. What you really want to know is when the witches’ tale will be available for purchase. But in the mean time, supporting one book does help to fund the other, so I do hope you will support both when they hit the market. 😁
Thank you to everyone who has supported my blogs and books, so far. You have been a priceless source of encouragement on my journey as a writer.
Activist. Writer. Explorer.

On both your original intriguing idea of writing a Cinderella murder mystery and on getting your book published. 🙂

I think I might just be more excited than Alexis. 🙂 Publishing is full of challenges but I also know that it is more than worth it. This is only the beginning, definitely!
And I am so excited! I love your writing. Your works are awesome! And as I make sure all goes well in SA, I am so looking forward to the Witches novel.
Congratulations, Alexis. What a splendid story idea!
Thank you, Noella. 😊
Very cool news, Alexis. I love “twists” on folk and fairy tales. Congratulations, and as you said in another comment, do let us know when it comes to the U.S.!
Thank you, Leigh! I’ll most definitely announce it here if it hits US markets. In the meantime, The Moreau Witches is still chugging along. 😊
congratulations thats quite an achievement
Thank you, Lisa! It’s funny that I’ll be published in a country I’ve never set foot in before I get published in the US or Jamaica, haha.
Because I’m one of your biggest fans!!! 😊🤗 I’m sure that you’ll head this way soon… and tell the world about it. 😋
Amazing! Congratulations (:
Thank you! 😊
