Still in Bloom – Why I Decided to Continue Roses & Thorns

Still in Bloom – Why I Decided to Continue Roses & Thorns

If you’ve been keeping up with this blog, my work on Wattpad, or my work on Radish, you probably know that I decided to continue the first book in the Fairytale Series, Once Upon a One Night Stand.

As of today, there are over two-hundred (yes, I said 200) new chapters of OUAONS. Wild, right? When I said I wanted to fill in all the blanks of the Fairytale Series timeline, I meant all the blanks. There is no stone left unturned!

To some of you, this might seem a little odd. Simone, you say. Hasn’t that story been complete on Wattpad since 2015? And my answer is: yes, you are correct! That story, Book #1 of The Fairytale Series has been complete for nearly 5 years now. I’ve even written three more books in the Fairytale Series since then! So why in the world would I continue a story that’s been complete for years now?

Well, let me explain…

Boy, do I have some exciting news to share!

You probably already guessed what it is based on the banner above, but Once Upon a One Night Stand is being turned into a game on the Chapters Interactive Stories app!

Starting July 25th, you’ll be able to play as Taliana and experience the classic enemies-to-lovers scenario with your very own Sebastian. You get to choose how you look, what you wear, and, best of all, how the story progresses. As someone who has played plenty of stories on the app already, I know it’s going to be a lot of fun.
