Once Upon 2023 - Party time!

Welcome! To celebrate Fairytale Day (February 26), some fairytale-retelling authors and I have gotten together to coordinate a fairytale-retelling-themed event. This year's event will be completely hosted on our blogs. To check out all the other author's posts, check out this complete list.

Let me introduce myself. I am Rachel Rossano, author of multiple genres, fairytale-inspired novels chief among them.

My main fairytale series, Once Upon a Duchy, is a series of fairytales told without magic in a medieval-inspired world. At this point, this series is three books long, and I hope to have a fourth ready to release before the end of this year. Each book stands alone, but they are more fun when read in order.

Also, this past October, I released a Cinderella-inspired standalone novella, Cianna's Fortune.

If you want to check out everything I write and my social media links, you can go here.

Enough about me. Let's get to the fun stuff!

I don't know about you, but I love coloring. There is something relaxing and calming about the tactile experience. Because of this, I have been collecting some coloring pages for me to enjoy and share.

If any of these look like something you would like to download and color yourself, you can find easily downloadable versions at the link below.
