If you liked Buzzfeed's Lesbian Princess videos, check out "Awake: Unsleeping Beauty"

A F/F retelling of Sleeping Beauty.
How do you like your fairy-tale princesses? Awake: Unsleeping Beauty takes two well-known classics, and adds a twist. Who says you need a prince to save the princess?

The idea for Awake came before Buzzfeed's popular video series on Lesbian Princesses, but it certainly fits (on theme). If you haven't seen them, here's Episode #1.


Awake: Unsleeping Beauty
by Louisa Bacio

Two princesses. One love.

What happens when the princess who never sleeps meets the princess who's cursed to sleep? The Princess and the Pea fights the need for rest as she embarks upon the rescue of Sleeping Beauty.

Once awake, the two challenge the real world to find their Happily Ever After. 


Get ready for the erotic lesbian retelling like no other.

Available via Amazon, ARe, Kobo, Smashwords, iTunes and other eretailers.


CONTEST: Grand Prize: Kindle Fire.

What better way to celebrate this new release than with a brand-new PINK Kindle! Ever since my friend Nikki Prince told me about them, I had to share.

Contest is open to U.S. residents for mailing, where eligible. Also giving away two print copies of the F/F anthology Love Spanks, and an Amazon gift card (open internationally).
