The Grimm Diaries are pages written in a Book of Sand, where each fairy tale character confessed the true stories once altered by the Brothers Grimm two centuries ago. To keep the truth about fairy tales hidden, the Brothers Grimm buried the characters in their dreams to never wake up again. But the curse is broken now, and the characters are allowed to wake up every one hundred years. They intend to tell the truth about really happened, and about an untold cosmic conflict between fairy tale characters.
The Grimm Diaries Prequels 1-6 recently made the Top 100 Kids & Teens Kindle Books of 2013 on Amazon, along with prequels 7-10, and Cameron Jace’s Snow White Sorrow!
- From Mary Mary Quite Contrary:
Once upon a time…in Hell, I was pretty bored.
Things around me weren’t burning hot enough like they usually were. I liked my Hell cooked well. A medium-rare- cooked Hell wasn’t my thing. It might be the French’s. Hell was missing a certain sparkle to it that day. The stars in the sky were shimmering a tad too bright for my eyes; instead of dimming, dying, or turning into Meteors, hitting the Earth, and putting an end to the whole mess. I could even feel a cold breeze swooshing through the coal and fire in Hell. I felt like I was on a freakin’ summer beach. What kind of Hell was that? We could lose our reputation like that.
Then I found a horrible blooming flower growing through the coals, unaffected by all the heat and cinder surrounding it. What the hell was going on? I just couldn’t believe it. It was such an awful day in Hell. Should I put the closed sign outside? “Sorry, we’re closed today due to maintenance. Come back later. A sin or two too late won’t kill ya.”
I imagined that the next thing I’d hear would be birds humming around me, fluttering and singing like in cartoons – which would be the end of me. Didn’t I feed the fire enough people today? Was Hell suddenly out of sinners and killers? I had been working hard all year. So hard that I thought I should get the Medal of Honor. But it looks like it was all in vain. Or maybe it was just a temporary thing today. You know those days when you wake up in the morning and in the middle of the night at the same time?
Things you might want to know:
Cameron writes books that he can’t find elsewhere, basically to amuse himself. Everything Cameron does is for fun, so don’t take him seriously. Never call him a writer. He hates that. He prefers the word: Storyteller, or the boy next door who claims he can tell stories.
If you like his books, horaaaay! He loves ya too. If ya don’t, hoooray! Now we know in advance that this relationship isn’t going to work.
Although his books are ordinary on the surface, they hold many secrets that he might reveal one day. What matters the most to him are characters struggling to find their identities and place in the world.
Things you don’t need to know:
He celebrates his birthday twice a year, the day he was born and Friday the 13th. He wants to live in a bubble house. He is a damn good guitar player. He is damn good architecture college drop out. He likes boats, beaches, bears, beards, bananas, bars, barfights, beans, bikes, bones, butter, babes, bakery, blizzards, and pirates (he thought it was spelled Birates when he was a kid.)
And honestly, writing in third person sucks! It’s so fake.
