Author Bio
 Elisabeth Wheatley started writing short stories when she was as young as seven years old. She began working on what would eventually become The Key of Amatahns when she was eleven. The story went through countless total rewrites until Elisabeth began working on what would be the final version when she was fourteen. When she completed the draft at fifteen, her parents (being supportive) sent her manuscript to a professional editor in West Texas. The editor, Suzanne O'Bryan, was so impressed with Elisabeth's work that she recommended it to a friend at a small publishing house, Chengalera Press. Chengalera Press was also very impressed and wanted to publish the manuscript. The Key of Amatahns was reviewed and edited by Professor Emeritus of the English Department at Southwestern University, Dr. T. Walt Herbert. The Kindle version of The Key of Amatahns was released on June 30, 2011, when Elisabeth was still fifteen. The paper version followed days later. Elisabeth is currently working on the second and third installments in the Argetallam Saga, while continuing to attend high school in the Texas Hill Country. Her hobbies include beekeeping, cheesemaking, mythology, and studying American Sign Language.

Fanged Princess (Fanged Princess #1)
By Elisabeth Wheatley


Why Hello There:
 I love the purple colour scheme. It's a different kind of cover. It kinda has a Snow White feel to it for me with the apple and all. I think the title text should be bigger, it blends in a bit with the author's name and 'novella' a bit too much, even though the font is different.

The Consideration Game:
The blurb sounds intriguing. This is a novella (obviously from the cover) so I think it will be a good quick read. Thinking maybe a train read. But other than that it sounds good :) Kind of lost for words at this cover and the blurb, but I don't know if it's in a good way or a bad way. Ok leaning towards a good way but still I don't know....

From the Author, Elisabeth:
When we were designing the cover for Fanged Princess, there were a few things to consider. We wanted gothic and a little creepy, but also pretty and something that wouldn't be difficult to match to future covers in the series. We played around with roses, flower-grunge borders, and a number of portraits. After messing around a bit, we decided that Hadassah should go on the cover. Then we got to sift through a seemingly endless number of images to find the right one. Some looked too sweet, others looked too mean, some were a bit too scary...then we found the one we used which, as Goldilocks would say, "is just right."  What I love about the cover is that it has a whimsical yet serious feel. And if you look closely, the model is wearing a cross, which is a part of the story, but something we didn't even consider when we picked the graphics out. Then there was the choice to go with a purple theme instead of the traditional red associated with vampire books. Why? Well, I confess it was a mostly arbitrary decision. I just wanted to try something different and it turned out pretty good in purple, so we ran with it. I could ramble on for pages about the little details involved in designing this baby, but I think I'll stop there. What do you guys think of Fanged Princess' cover?
