The Grimm Diaries Prequels Blog Tour: Excerpt + Giveaway

The Grimm Diaries Prequels (1-6)
Author: Cameron Jace
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Fairy-tale Retelling
Published: November 19, 2012

The Grimm Diaries are pages written in a Book of Sand, where each fairy tale character confessed the true stories once altered by the Brothers Grimm two centuries ago. To keep the truth about fairy tales hidden, the Brothers Grimm buried the characters in their dreams to never wake up again. But the curse is broken now, and the characters are allowed to wake up every one hundred years. They intend to tell the truth about really happened, and about an untold cosmic conflict between fairy tale characters.

The Grimm Diaries Prequels 1-6 recently made the Top 100 Kids & Teens Kindle Books of 2013 on Amazon, along with prequels 7-10, and Cameron Jace's Snow White Sorrow

From Blood Apples: 

“When Snow White stabbed herself, her blood spattered all over the apples in the Avalon Tree, staining the gold with red. Since you both surpassed all expected kinds of Adage by killing yourself to be with one another, I was moved – like all the gods were moved – by your story, and I decided to honor your love by turning the apples that poisoned you red and sweet forever.”
I was speechless again. My love for Snow White moved the gods and they changed the color of a fruit?
“But that means that catching Death is going to be harder now,” I said.
“Let it be,” Pomona waved her wings. “Death is eventual, a nature’s call, and it happens everyday. Adage, true love, isn’t, and it needs human strength to live with its enchanting, yet sorrowful consequences. It deserves to be appreciated, for it’s not easy, and needs human will, strength, and heart. It doesn’t matter how many people die in the world, as long as there are the few who know how to love and live. The power of love, however little, is enough to balance all the death around us.”
I walked away that day, wanting to tell everyone how Snow White and I had changed the world. With every step farther, I was leaving my monster girl forever behind. I picked a blood red apple on the way, and took a bite. I closed my eyes, feeling the taste on my lips. It was the taste of Snow White’s lips, and it will be forever tasted by the rest of the world without them knowing it. Because of me and Snow White, no one will ever be poisoned by apples again.
Little did I know that Snow White wasn’t dead. Pomona twisted the truth and persuaded me that Snow was dead to protect me from her, always and forever. Snow White was Immortal, and I think she woke up minutes after I left, asking about me. It’s easy to imagine the kind of lies they told her. Maybe they told her I was dead too.
I spent the rest of my life trying to find her again, but all in vain. All I know is that Pomona didn’t lie about the fruits, for all apples are still blood red in this world. And every time I take a bite, I remember they are the color of Death.
Things you might want to know:

Cameron writes books that he can't find elsewhere, basically to amuse himself. Everything Cameron does is for fun, so don't take him seriously. Never call him a writer. He hates that. He prefers the word: Storyteller, or the boy next door who claims he can tell stories.

If you like his books, horaaaay! He loves ya too. If ya don't, hoooray! Now we know in advance that this relationship isn't going to work.

Although his books are ordinary on the surface, they hold many secrets that he might reveal one day. What matters the most to him are characters struggling to find their identities and place in the world.

Things you don't need to know:

He celebrates his birthday twice a year, the day he was born and Friday the 13th. He wants to live in a bubble house. He is a damn good guitar player. He is damn good architecture college drop out. He likes boats, beaches, bears, beards, bananas, bars, barfights, beans, bikes, bones, butter, babes, bakery, blizzards, and pirates (he thought it was spelled Birates when he was a kid.)

And honestly, writing in third person sucks! It's so fake.
