Copies of my press release have also been sent to USA Today, the Houston Home Journal, The Huffington Post, Writer’s Digest, and The Atlanta Journal Constitution! I can’t wait to see which of these fabulous publications decide to feature my book! Keep an eye out for updates over the coming weeks, and in case you didn’t have a chance to buy a copy of the Dispatch, here is the official press release for Fathoms Below.

In Fathoms Below, the new self-published Young Adult fantasy by independent author Laura Holt. A fairy tale retelling of Cinderella set in modern times, Fathoms Below will appeal to fans of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians and Jackson Pearce’s Retold Fairy Tales. It is available for sale on Kindle, Nook, and Kobo E-Reader, and online at Barnes & Noble.

In a world where all of the fairy tales, Greek myths, and tragic love stories you grew up reading are real…where immortal gods and goddesses rule on Mount Olympus, forbidden from mingling with mortals on Earth, even the ones they love…where a beautiful girl with a golden slipper is as likely to be a thief as she is to be a princess…and where magic, as well as all those with it, have been cast out of the mortal realm for centuries…until now, Cather Stevens, an eighteen year old girl, discovers that she is under a star crossed curse cast by Zeus, King of the gods, because of a mistake that her ancestor made. Doomed forever to lose everyone she loves if she does not find a way to fix things, Cather sets out on a quest to break her family’s curse with the help of Hermes, Book Keeper and Messenger of the gods, and Peter Ganis, a mortal whose ancestry goes hand in hand with Cather’s. Along the way, they will have to face monsters of mythological proportions, angry immortals that will stop at nothing to keep the star crossed curse from being broken, and a love so powerful that, in the end, may cost Cather everything she has worked so hard to protect.

Laura Holt lives in a small Georgia town with her daughter and their fighting fish, Flounder, and has been writing avidly since the third grade. She has won numerous awards for short stories and essays, and several of her poems have been published in anthologies. When she isn’t writing, she can be found curled up on the couch reading, working out, or hunting for buried treasure with her daughter.
