And...here is a preview of the interview that will be posted Friday, March 29th on A Backwards Story:
~How did you come up with the concept for FAIR MAIDEN, which features elements that are paranormal, fantasy, and historical all mashed up?

I'd recently read a book that had a ghost theme and really liked it. Then as I was thinking about Sleeping Beauty, I started to wonder how I could blend the two. I also wanted to resolve the "ghost" problem with magic instead of time travel.

~You mix genres in your other novels as well, such as FATEFUL, which features Shrek-like curses, vampires and Jane Austen.  What can readers expect from future books?

I have never thought of the curse in Fateful as being Shrek-like! How funny! But I guess it's true even though it wasn't intentional. Many don't know this, but Fateful was inspired by The Frog Prince. I suppose, I'm just trying to think outside the box, and it seems I can't resist blending all of the things I love, like Jane Austen, fairy tales, and vampires, so who knows what I'll come up with next. I also can't resist putting fairies and magic in my stories, so readers can definitely expect more of that. And, of course, lots of romance...After I've finished with The Fair Maiden series, which will be a total of three books, I'll start working on what I think happens to Peter Pan when he does grow up, and then probably something with a Robin Hood twist.

This giveaway just ended, but there's still a chance to win Fair Maiden
and/or Fateful via Goodreads.

And while you're there, vote for me in Listopia. :)

It's the Victorian era in England, but Tessa is from the medieval past. She awakens within a castle she has never seen before. Knowledge of her name also evades her. However, even worse than not knowing who or where she is, she cannot recall how she died or why she is dressed as a bride.

Along with Christian, the earl of the castle she haunts, Tessa tries to discover who she is and break the spell holding her in a prison of death. They never imagined the curse keeping them apart is the only thing protecting her, until it's too late.

Review by Keni:

"This book is so great. I always enjoy a little bit of mystery in my novels, especially since Sherlock Holmes is my superhero. And there is plenty of mystery in Fair Maiden. There's also romance, fantasy, and a chivalrous Earl named Christian. This book is perfect for the little girl in all of us, and also perfect for the more mature side of us. I can promise that i will be one of the first to recommend this book to everyone and anyone i know who can appreciate a well written and gorgeous love story. In fact, this is so book is so extraordinary, i'm dropping what i'm reading now and picking this up. So, if you need me, i'll be curled up with a blanket, a cup of hot cocoa, and an absolutely amazing novel called Fair Maiden by the wonderful Cheri Schmidt."

Thanks for visiting my blog and good luck!
