Welcome back to Marketing for Romance Writers Book Hooks. Today, I’m sharing another sharing another teaser from Alice in Shifterland, my campy, over-the-top, steamy ménage re-telling of Alice in Wonderland. I’ve recently uploaded all of season one, Down The Rabbit Hole to Radish Fiction, and exciting App for lovers of serialized fiction.
I’m in the process of uploading season two, Rise of the White Queen. The following except is from Season two, episode two. At this point, Alice has learned who and what she is. She’s also been told of the prophesy that she’ll save the White Kingdom from the Jabberwock, but she’s far from convinced.
She pursed her lips, contemplating the spoiled, mostly carefree existence she’d lived up until then. The thought of her being responsible for the well-being of an entire kingdom of shifters was absurd. I’d be a shitty queen. I don’t want any of this.
She clasped her hands together so she wouldn’t wring them. “So…this whole destiny thing with the Jaber…thingy. Can you tell me what that’s all about?”
“Uh huh,” he responded as he dried the pastel purple teacup Alice had used with a seafoam green dishtowel.
She waited for a few seconds. “Well?”
He sighed. “Legend has it only you can vanquish the Jabberwock.”
“Me? The girl who can’t do anything practical? I can quote passages from obscure literary works in perfect French, but I can’t even make French toast.”
“Prophesy indicates Hat and I will be helping you.” He washed and dried his hands before turning around to face her.
She wagged her head. “I’m probably just along for the ride.”
“Not so much. There’s a sacred sword only someone of your bloodline can wield.”
“Say what?” She looked off to the side before bringing her gaze back to his face. “Great, the fencing lessons I took for a whole eight months will finally come in handy.”
He nodded. “Eight months is a long time in a hell world.”
Alice rolled her eyes as she dropped her arms down by her sides and balled up her fists. “Could you quit saying I’m a hellspawn.”
“Aahhh.” She waved him off. “Just shush about that. Tell me about the monster and not in some weird poem.”
All of her life, Alice knew she was different. Not only did she have trouble relating to the people around her, everything about her surroundings seemed off. She had no idea why until she chased a white rabbit into a hidden tear in the universe and landed in a strange, but oddly comforting, land of sexy shifters, power-crazed royals with a penchant for BDSM, and a gorgeous stranger who insisted her appearance in Shifterland was her prophesied destiny. Now she’s on a quest to vanquish a monster and restore the White Kingdom.
