Happy birthday, Six Crimson Cranes!
It’s release day! Welcome to the world, SIX CRIMSON CRANES. This book has been years in the making, and is inspired by one of my very favorite fairytales since childhood -- about a young princess whose brothers are cruelly turned into birds, and she must break their curse! My version's a little different, but I think it stays faithful to the heart of the story. Pick it up if you want to read about courageous princesses, mercurial dragons, and flying paper birds. There’s fairytale and Studio Ghibli vibes, court intrigue and mistaken identities, and of course, romance.
