Please Help a Friend and Get Some Great Books!
Regina Doman is a fantastic writer of YA fantasy--fairy tales given a modern twist. I have loved every one I've read, as has my 14-year-old daughter. Regina sent me this message and plea.
My sister has diabetes, which she discovered in her college years. I remember the struggles she has. I can hardly imagine a 6-year-old going through it. Please help Regina as best you can. It's win/win, really--you'll adore her books! You Do Not Have To Be Catholic To Enjoy These!
A SPECIAL NEW YEAR APPEAL
My dear devoted friends,
I am making a special appeal to you today.
Last night we took my 6-year-old son, Thomas, to the emergency room because of symptoms he was displaying that indicated he may have developed diabetes. The hospital doctors confirmed that he had.
Our current financial and insurance situation leaves little if any room to cover the projected on-going costs of managing this illness.
What we are asking of you is this:
In addition to your prayers, please forward this email (Modify as necessary. There is a link at the bottom of this email.) to as many people, bookstores, libraries, youth groups, schools, and book clubs you can, asking them to consider buying Regina Doman's Fairy Tale Novels.
Regina's Fairy Tale Novels are not only available on Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble, but also from these websites and others as well:
And in the United Kingdom: http://www.SouthwellBooks.com/doman-regina-150-c.asp
There are also order forms on the Fairy Tale Novels website for regular retail purchases http://www.fairytalenovels.com/RetailOrders.cfm and wholesale purchases http://www.fairytalenovels.com/BookstoreOrders.cfm.
THANK YOU! Thank you for your prayers for our family and especially for Thomas.
Peace and good, and blessings on your New Year.
The Shadow of the Bear

Once upon a time...
in New York City...
Dwarves. Dragons. Fighting. Fire. Princes. Peasants. Maidens. Mysteries.

Knights. Nuns. Ninjas. Minstrels. Miracles.
Princesses. Priests. Chases. Escapes. Rescues. Revenge. Torture. True love.
...for those who have the courage to see life as a fairy tale.
Black as Night
Seven friars wake up to find a runaway girl in their homeless shelter: she has black hair and white skin. And she's terrified that someone is trying to kill her...
A mysterious accident leaves a vibrant young girl comatose. The only one who can reach her is a young man struggling through a hedge of thorns within himself...
From Waking Rose:
"Bravo," Fish said, striding towards them. The two figures froze, and looked at him. Rose remained still, gazing at the girl with the knife.
What are YA readers saying?
Here's some excerpts from the many emails and letters I've received over the years:
The Shadow of the Bear is one of my favorite books ever. It's one of those books that I can't stop reading until it's finished. ... Thanks for writing such an awesome book! -- Joe N.
I LOVED your book! ... But it really should have a "WARNING: READING THIS BOOK IS ADDICTIVE" on it.
I have to say Black as Night is the BEST book I have ever read. Thanks and please continue to write such great novels!!!
I started Waking Rose about 9:00 PM or so, and couldn't put it down until I'd finished it at around 2:00 AM in the morning.
--Andrew H., 18 years.
i finished The Midnight Dancers at 1:22 am, ...and it was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -- Dominique, 18
The Midnight Dancers
Twelve sisters from a strict family find a secret way out of their home at night, and their midnight adventures and deception lead them into a dangerous dance...
How do you convince someone who's bored with goodness to learn to love it?
That's the tough job med student cum-ninja, Paul Fester, has in The Midnight Dancers, a retelling of the classic fairy tale "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" set on Maryland's bay shore.
