Hot Fairy Tale Shifter Series Author Christina Bauer to Make Autographing Debut with IPG at BookCON and Book Expo America
Early excitement for Wolves And Roses, a new book that brings together Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Red Riding Hood in a Manhattan teen therapy group, led to Monster House Books publishing their first high-volume print distribution.
Newton, MA – May 23, 2017 – Monster House Books LLC (MHB) today announced Christina Bauer’s debut signing at BookExpo America and BookCON in tandem with Distributor IPG and Inscribe Digital as the pre-release review debut for Wolves And Roses, their first release for high-volume print distribution. MHB has a proven track record in eBook with Bauer, who has sold more than a half-million YA books. With Wolves And Roses, MHB and Bauer launch a new young adult series that combines fairy tale characters, shifters, and mid-town Manhattan.
“When I started writing Wolves And Roses, I thought it would be a typical shifter story,” says Author Christina Bauer. “Suddenly, I’m writing about Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Red Riding Hood and the Evil Queen from Snow white. They’re all teenagers in a therapy group for magical girls who fail at their fairy tale life template. Plus, Cinderella ended up being a jewel thief, Sleeping Beauty had a magical inhaler that kept her awake, and their group leader looked like someone who fell out an ad for electric ovens in 1953. I thought, ‘this is crazy, but it’s fun to write, so I’m going with it.’ I was delighted when my distributor got so excited.”
“It’s rare to find a fairy tale series where you ask ‘why hasn’t anyone done this before?’” says Kelly Peterson, Director, INscribe Digital, a division of Independent Publishers Group (IPG). “That’s exactly why we’re so enthusiastic about Wolves And Roses. There are so many great elements that are both familiar and fresh, all at the same time. That’s why we’re thrilled Christina will join BEA through our booth and participate in galley signings at BookCON. We feel confident this is a title to watch!”
BEA and BookCON Presence
Monster House Books will be attending BEA in tandem with Inscribe and IPG. A limited number of signed galley copies of Wolves And Roses will be available at the IPG Booth, along with downloadable copies of other titles from Monster House Books.

About WOLVES And ROSES
Seventeen-year-old Bryar Rose has a problem. She’s descended from one of the three magical races—shifters, fairies, or witches. That makes her one of the Magicorum, and Magicorum always follow a fairy tale life template. In Bryar’s case, that template should be Sleeping Beauty.
“Should” being the key word.
Trouble is, Bryar is nowhere near the sleeping beauty life template. Not even close. She doesn’t like birds or woodland creatures. She can’t sing. And she certainly can’t stand Prince Philpot, the so-called “His Highness of Hedge Funds” that her aunties want her to marry. Even worse, Bryar’s having recurring dreams of a bad boy hottie and is obsessed with finding papyri from ancient Egypt. What’s up with that?
All Bryar wants is to attend a regular high school with normal humans and forget all about shifters, fairies, witches, and the curse that Colonel Mallory the Magnificent placed on her. And she might be able to do just that–if only she can just keep her head down until her eighteenth birthday when the spell that’s ruined her life goes buh-bye.
But that plan gets turned upside down when Bryar Rose meets Knox, the bad boy who’s literally from her dreams. Knox is a powerful werewolf, and his presence in her life changes everything, and not just because he makes her knees turn into Jell-O. If Bryar can’t figure out who—or what—she really is, it might cost both her and Knox their lives… as well as jeopardize the very nature of magic itself.
