When Kat accidentally rips apart an old childhood picturebook, she's magically transported into the world of Cinderella - as Katriona, one of the ugly stepsisters! To get back, she'll have to complete the story, right to the end of happily ever after. But the odds are huge: The other stepsister is movie-star gorgeous, the fairy godmother is nowhere to be found, and the prince isn't interested in balls at all. Can she ever return to the real world?

Hey. You. The one tangled in Christmas lights with a to-do list two pages long sitting next to you. The one who is mailing cards, baking cookies, taking your kids to school, and working a second shift for your side hustle. The one who is a writer in addition to everything else. I am talking to you.

What I want to say is that I understand. A common affliction among many writers is they often have the bad habit of allowing everything in their life to take precedence over their writing. They postpone finishing their first chapter to finish the laundry or run errands. They forego editing their work to help a friend. They sacrifice starting their next book so that they can work on their never-ending to do list of household chores and errands.

Many writers uphold their commitment to everyone and everything else even when it means breaking their commitment to writing. So, why do some writers allow their writing to take a proverbial backseat to everything else?

Blurb:  When Kat accidentally rips apart an old picture book, she’s magically transported into the world of Cinderella–as Katriona, one of the ugly stepsisters! Life turns upside down now that she’s a highborn lady and must learn how to survive the social season, including how to get through the door in a huge metal hoop skirt. To get back, she’ll have to complete the story, right to the end of happily ever after. But the odds are huge: the other stepsister is drop-dead gorgeous, the fairy godmother is nowhere to be found, and the prince, despite being insanely hot, openly dislikes balls. Can she ever return to the modern world?

Aya is from Taiwan, where she struggles daily to contain her obsession with mouthwatering and unhealthy foods. Often she will devour a good book instead. Her favorite books include martial arts romances, fairy tale retellings, high fantasy, cozy mysteries, and manga.

Some readers liked the idea of Kat entering the fairy tale by ripping apart the book. Well, here’s the actual book that inspired the concept. You can see that the cover has completely fallen off:

The ugly sisters are characters in the fairy tale and pantomime , Cinderella . They are the daughters of Cinderella's Wicked stepmother , who treat her poorly. The "ugly sisters" have been in variations of the story from as early as researchers have been able to determine. [1]

In more recent adaptations, the role of the wicked stepmother has been reduced in prominence and the sisters assume her role to a degree. [ citation needed ] Sometimes she has died or other times she has absconded with the family fortune and left Cinderella to cope with her two ugly daughters.

Unlike the Grimms' version of the fairy tale "where the sisters were themselves 'beautiful and fair in appearance,'" Disney's depiction presents Drizella and Anastasia as ugly sisters. [5] Southwest Texas State University's Department of English identifies various distinguishing characteristics of Drizella and Anastasia, such as exaggerated and naked feet emphasizing physical nature and a big bustle emphasizing clumsiness, of these characters versus their more positively presented counterpart, Cinderella . [6] Disney describes them as simply "spoiled, awkward, and ungainly." [7]
