About the Author

Anita Valle spent ten years developing The Nine Princesses while searching for a book format that would work for so many characters. The stories began as children's picture books, evolved into chapter books, became lumped together in one huge novel, and were finally broken down into a series of novellas. Anita lives in upstate New York with her husband and three boys who don't like princesses. She enjoys reading literary novels, creating graphic designs for her online shops, and painting piggy banks.

What a great book! Scrupulously well written, surprising plot twists, and definitely not your usual princess story at all. Maelyn is a strong person and isn't waiting to be saved by any Prince Charming. This is not a damsel-in-distrss story but a unique story of a young woman facing more difficulties than the average princess deals with. Fun characters and a solidly good ending. I recommend it!

I truly don't like the saccharine nature of princess fairy tales, so I like how the character Cinderella was twisted into something different. I was especially liked the new fairy God mother. Also not annoying. And the grand finale, gracefully moving into the next twisted fairy tale...BRAVO! You've made princess fairy tales pleasant!

The book was very interesting I really enjoyed it but it was way to short I finished it in about 20 minutes I really love this book but I would like to see the author challenge them self and try to write a longer book. I feel that a lot more readers would read the stories if they were longer.

Cute story about nine adopted princesses. First in a series. Some pages got skipped (nook version) which was annoying...but it was free.

This book is amazing! I couldn't put it down. If you love fairy tales, stories about princesses or damsels in distress, this is a must read. Definitely appropriate for all ages. If you've ever dreamed of being a princess, this book is for you. I can't wait to read the next one!

This is not your average princess that you hear about in movies or TV shows, no Maelyn was simply a village girl adopted into royalty. Maelyn and her number sisters are now princesses of this kingdom. Maelyn's uncle thinks that she is not fit to time her kingdom. Get this book and find out more!!! I'm sure you will love it....

I always thought Cinderella was a little too sweet for her own good. Nice to get a new spin on who she really was.

Appropriate for YA yet still fun for us 40somethings ;) The +/- it's 85 pages and start of a series I'd not pay $3 each to continue. I've read other books by this author which in itself is good.

Great Read!

I really liked this little story. It was simply written, yet not necessarily predictable. I loved the idea of the nine princesses to begin with, and I'm very looking forward to getting to know more of them in the future novellas. My only complaint is that it wasn't longer! The world is an interesting one, though simple as I've said. I wish that we could go deeper into the world and learn more, but alas, they are only novellas. On to the second one!
