Have you read Girl of Fire and Thorns yet? If not I recommend it, I finished it in like 6 hours because I couldn’t put it down.

Of course!

Okay, first of all this sounds amazing!! Well what about them are you making similar? Are they the same age, do they live in the same kingdom? I know when I’m frustrated I like to work on little details to bring the whole thing together.

They’re all the same age, and they’ve been friends since they were practically babies because their parents were acquaintances. They all live in the capital city of their kingdom, which has been under a curse for like 200 years. I’ve actually had these characters and their relationships knocking around in my head and on my computer for a few years, but I didn’t really do much with them except character build them because I was so focused on my main project. Now that I’ve finished the first book of that and have it edited and some friends beta reading it, I’ve turned my attention to this story and FINALLY have a plot that brings them all together.

I think once I get a master timeline for the story’s events done, it’ll be easier. Because I have the backstory and the girls themselves pretty much the way I want them.

my Kindle question: how do I set up a lending books thing? like if I want a book that a pal has, how can they send me the book?

If you get an answer to this let me know. I know you can do library books as well but i dont know how to do that either.

To lend Kindle books, go to your Manage My Content and Devices page on your Amazon account, then click the little drop-down thing by your book, and you should see an option that says “Lend this book” or something like that. Not all books can be loaned out, but lots can!

To borrow library ebooks you’ll need a library card, then you can just go to your library’s website and they should have a link to ebooks under their online catalog. Idk about most, but for my library and my Kindle it takes me to Amazon where I download a borrowed copy.

Hope this helps!

How so?

I mean honestly I brought this on myself. I decided the heroines all needed to be friends and also that their fairy tale problems all needed to be part of a larger kingdom-wide curse. So mostly it’s how to get them all their endings—my Cinderella’s shoe fitting, my miller’s daughter beating Rumpelstiltskin (messing with that story and having her figure out the name, like, a few days after he spins the last straw to gold), my Beauty saving her Beast, and my Snow White and Sleeping Beauty both being woken up—and make them part of one LARGER ending that is the ending of the curse. Also I decided it needed to be alternating chapters from each girl’s point of view, so I have to decide who gets what part of the over-arching story woven into their own. Plus since they’re best friends the stories have to interweave at some points, so I have to decide how that happens. So basically I made it WAY harder on myself than I really needed to but I’m just like well fuck it, I like this idea so difficulties be damned hahaha.

Combining five fairy tales into one narrative is proving to have some logistical hurdles.

Authentic Tang Dynasty style weddings use green for the bride as in the last picture (pre-Tang use black for groom, Tang and post-Tang use red for groom). They also designed Hanfu in other colors for personal preferences.
