Friday Reads: Poison

A Poisonous Competition
We are delighted to share with you a saucy, well on the borderline of saucy, reading from Sarah Pinborough’s new novella Poison.
Take a wicked queen, a handsome prince, a beautiful princess and a poisoned apple . . .
It’s Snow White, but not as you know her.
A wicked, delicious, sexy fairy tale perfect for fans of Once Upon a Time and Fifty Shades of Grey.
Listen to the extract below carefully and send along the answer to this question: In the passage about when the sunlight glittered on the drops of water that clung to her skin, Sarah uses a simile to compare the drops of water to what ? It’s a tricky question but we have five beautiful signed copies to give away to five lucky winners! Send your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: POISON by 11.59 on the 25th April 2013. Good luck!Read More

Once Upon a Time… (A Valentine’s Day Post from Sarah Pinborough)
Let’s be honest – I’m not exactly the first writer you think of when you think of romance and fairy tale happy endings (well, I shouldn’t be – unless your idea of romance is even more twisted than mine). To be fair, the darkness of my normal writing aside, I’m fiercely independent and over the […]Read More
