I am delighted to announce that I have just self-published my second book, The White Wolf. This novella is a retelling of a fairytale with the same name; it’s been a lot of fun over the last several months to dig into the fairytale, trying to figure out characters’ motivations, twisting and tweaking to make a unified, sensible story.
As I did with Genevieve of Alea, I’ve self-published The White Wolf through Amazon. On there, you can buy it for Kindle or in print. But if you want the book autographed—I’m getting some author copies of it, and you can order them on Etsy. As soon as they arrive, I’ll inscribe, sign, and ship them!
Here’s the blurb:
Her sisters want pearls and fine clothing, yet all Princess Brianna asks the King to bring her is a wreath of wildflowers. That way, he’ll remember not to stay away too long on his travels. But it’s late October before her father returns, and the only wildflowers he can find are those on the head of a human-voiced white wolf. One bargain later, the King has accidentally sold his youngest daughter to the wolf—and for Brianna, the adventure begins.
You can read the first chapter here. And as for the rest…
I think you or your daughter, granddaughter, or friend might enjoy The White Wolf, and I hope you’ll check it out. If you do get it, I’d appreciate a review or a word on social media—it really helps. Thanks for your attention!

I loved Genevieve of Alea, so I’m very excited that you’ve published another book — especially one based on one of my favorite fairy tales! Your writing reflects Truth and Beauty in a way that is fun and refreshing. I can’t wait to see what you’ve done this time!
How lovely that you’ve already read The White Wolf; it really deserves to be better known than it is. (Perhaps unlike others of Lang’s stories. Did you find TWW in the Grey Fairy Book? Some of the other stories in there are just… weird.)
And I’m glad you enjoyed Genevieve!
I did read Lang’s version of The White Wolf, though I don’t think I’ve read anything else in The Grey Fairy Book (now you’ve made me curious about it!). I find The White Wolf fascinating because it is a bit like East of the Sun and West of the Moon, and a bit like Beauty and the Beast, but not quite like either of them.
On a different note, I have received a copy of your retelling of The White Wolf, and I can’t put it down! While staying true to the original, you’ve made this already wonderful tale even better — no small accomplishment! I love how you’ve developed all the characters, and I’m noticing a theme of duty and selflessness which is very beautiful. I can’t wait to see how it ends!
