That is awesome, thankyou! and i think you two might actually be twins.

Rachel

Ah, Shannon. You're becoming the next Oprah. I had several requests tonight at my bookstore for Dragon Slippers, and so did the other bookstore in town. Couldn't figure out why (it was really popular when it first came out but then died down) until I saw the topic of your blog! Will have to get some in for sure. Fantastic interview. :)

Summermoon

I am glad I am not the only one who had a thing going for Aurora and Sleeping Beauty. I used to love that Disney version!

Anidori-Isilee

I loved Dragon Slippers and can't wait for Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow. And the second Dragon Slippers book and pretty much everything that Jessica's writing. ;)

Great interview, Shannon and Jessica! :D

My local indie recommended "Dragon Slippers" and I'm so glad they did. I loved it and am anxiously waiting for my copy of "Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow" to arrive!
:)

Another "East of the Sun, West of the Moon" retelling? Sweet...

I've been meaning to read _Dragon Slippers_ for a while; LRRHers have recommended it so highly!

Celes

Wow! Thanks for the interview! Dragon Slippers was just amazing, and I'm exited for her next book! Eee!

Fabulous interview, ladies! I can't wait for Twelve Dancing Princesses.....and what Anidori Isilee said: anything by Jessica!

Lena

ooooooh sounds great! i absolutely adore the fairy tale 'east of the sun and west of the moon' !!! also YAY for everyone who knows that aurora looks so much better in blue!

Chelsea

The blue dress is oh so much better! I loved Dragon slippers and can't wait for your other books. And red hair rocks!

Ellenboro

I haven't read this book. Yet. I've been meaning to though because it sits on a library shelf staring at me everytime I pass by.
I also had a thing for Aurora. Since I don't have a middle name, I would dream that my first name was Aurora because it was my second favorite name.
And I mayn't have red hair, but red hair so completely rocks. So keep rocking!

Kelsey

Wow, you people have great taste in fairytales. :) I mean, between "East of the Sun," "The Twelve Dancing Princesses," and of course "The Goose Girl", I am a very happy girl. Those are all my favorites. (Especially if you throw in more of the odd ones like "The Enchanted Wreath" and "Princess Rosaline".) I'm so excited; I didn't realize "Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow" was coming out so soon!

I wish I had red hair...
This is about the tenth time I've seen Dragon Slippers reccomended... I need to read it!

Bohae

I love Dragon Slippers!!!

smileynann

No way -- the pink dress was WAY better! Although, of course everyone loves Merryweather best of all the fairies.

Doesn't Jessica Day George just sound like someone you could really LIKE? She seems so nice! I'm excited to get my hands on a copy.

Faith #2

calliope- I want red hair too.

Aurora looks AWESOME in Blue! Though Belle is always by favorite, she and Ariel both have tons of personality.

Q

I like the pink, and my favorite color is blue. ("Make it pink!")

Chelsea

I must admit, Belle rocks. But Aurora is one of the only princesses that was actually born a princess, go figure.

maribeth_kayla

I LOVED DRAGON SLIPPERS!
I'm really excited for all her new books. :D

Calliope1of9

Yeah, Faith dos. All the awesome people in my life are redheads. Go figure.
Is *Draggon Slippers* out in paperback?

Ellenbro

Actually Aurora isn't the only princess. Ariel was born a princess. As was Pocahontas, though she never comes up as a Disney Princess. Go figure that.

Auguri di buon natale,
Auguri di buon natale,
E di un felice anno nuovo
al mondo inter.

Le strene piu belle
Ad ogni bambin.

Auguri di buon natale,
I buon anno di cuor.

I might have missed a few spellings, but it should be pretty close. Do any of you remember from so long ago what this is?

Sorry about that double post. I'm close to being an unspeakable horror. And my internet does not like to cooperate.

Gretchen

Excellent interview, although I'm afraid I'm in the pink dress camp.
Happy holidays to all you wonderful Squeetusers!

So I was reading this blog and thinking--Hey! That sounds like a fun read and my daughter would probably like it too.

And then I recognized Jessica's picture on her website and realized that we were English majors at BYU at the same time and took classes together.

Weird, but cool.

Ellenboro

Q, it's easy to tell that whatever it is you wrote on there is in Italian. I think it sounds like a song. I can't tell exactly what it means but I can closely translate a few parts.

Wishes for a good Christmas
Wishes for a good Christmas,
And (have) a happy new year
to the entire world.

Le strene more beautiful
To every child (or baby)

Wishes for a good Christmas,
And a good year from the heart.

I think the parts I translated are about right. If anyone knows Italian please check this out and translate it.

Jessica

Wait, Myrna, who are you? I never was an English major. . . .

Q

Ah, yes, but Ellenboro, what song is it? It fits with the song, and you should know this song.

myrna

I shouldn't have assumed you were an English major, Jessica. I'm sorry, but I recognized your picture and was trying to remember where I'd seen you. I thought I remembered having classes with you in the JKHB, but I must be losing my memory. You see, I turned 31 last week (though I think it's more likely a symptom of having 3 kids--every time I get pregnant my memory gets worse).

Katie

I had been putting off Dragon Slippers behind a few other books I'm reading but after reading the interview, I decided I should read it. It was worth it.
I always thought Disney should have done a twelve dancing princesses fairy tale when I was younger. So now I'm writing my own version of the story too.

Faith #2

OH! I forgot to say I loved it how they slipped TGG into Dragon Slippers.

Rinna-girl

OMG, I love JDG
