As You Wish, Revisited!
So, every author has had the experience where finished books don’t quite turn out the way she thought they would. A traditional publisher chooses titles that aren’t quite right for the story. Cover art just doesn’t look like what it should. Back-of-the-book blurbs aren’t what they should be, to *really* explain what the story is about.
And now, through the wonder of self-publishing, some of us authors get to correct those things. Take, for example, the As You Wish Series. The As You Wish Series shows what goes wrong when a magic lamp, a wish-granting genie, and backstage life in the theater all collide. Now, the series has all new titles, all new covers, and all new blurbs — but the novels themselves remain exactly the same! You can buy all three volumes of the As You Wish Series as one omnibus ebook (Buy now!) Or you can buy each volume individually….
“Fresh and often hysterically funny, this story also has a solid emotional core. Heroine Kira’s first-person perspective keeps it all real for the reader… (4 stars)” — Romantic Times
In Act One, Wish One [Buy now!] (previously released as How Not to Make a Wish), stage manager Kira Franklin discovers a brass lamp in the back of a prop closet, complete with a gender-bending, wish-granting genie. Her first wish is easy – a job on a prestigious avant-garde production of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Soon, though, Kira wonders how many wishes she’ll need to succeed in that dream job. Her growing attraction to hunky actor Drew Myers rubs laconic set designer John McRae the wrong way… And John’s stability may be the only thing reining in the increasingly bizarre demands of the play’s quirky director. With her professional reputation on the line, Kira has to wonder: What’s a girl to do when she runs out of wishes?

Wielding her wishes, Becca gets the chance to stage a challenging new play that can put the theater back on track.
