About Cinderella Goes to the Potty
Cinderella scratched a new line on the wall every night when the clock struck twelve. For 999 nights, she’d sworn to herself that she wouldn’t stay long enough to see 1000. Cinderella heard the old man and the old woman clunking up the stairs. The clock began to chime. Cinderella was out of time. She had a decision to make–the kind of decision that could change her life or take it from her.

#1 bestselling author, Justin Blaney, was born in Los Angeles and began his writing career in Mrs. King’s English class at the age of 6, but after a tragic accident involving a manual pencil sharpener he suddenly declared that writing was “not his thing.”Instead, he moved one state north to make his fortune in the organic meats industry.

After being named the Sausage Baron of Springfield, Justin grew tired of farming fame and moved yet another state north where he can venture into the meat department at Whole Foods without being pestered for the secret to one of his famous recipes.
 
Since then, Justin founded several companies, earned an MBA, began producing films, went parasailing, rode an elevator to the top of the Space Needle and decided to give writing one last shot, the result of which is a book about a shut-in named Evan Burl who never takes a bath. Evan Burl and the Falling, the first novel in a series that has very little to do with hygiene, reached #1 bestselling status in the suspense, fantasy and teen genres.
 
Justin lives with his wife and three daughters in Issaquah, a suburb of Bellevue which is a suburb of Seattle.

Cinderella Goes to the Potty is a very cute story. It tells about Cinderella who is being held captive by an old man and woman. The tree potty had to be fed and they were coming to get Cinderella to use her as a sacrifice. But Cinderella is going to try to escape. Will she manage to get free in time?

 

While it is a very short story I think kids will love it. It has the essence of a thriller but with kids in mind. I would recommend it to anyone with children. Not overly young though as it does have the thriller aspect. I wasn’t overly fond of the way the printing was at times (wrapped around objects) which made it difficult to read but I would like to point out that the illustrations are amazing. They are a must see!

Hello! I’m partnering with Justin Blaney to help him spread the word about his fun new book series, Isfits.

He’s launching the series with a Kickstarter campaign—he wants to turn these fun/unique stories into full-color, hardback, glossy-paged books.

Who’s Justin? Justin Blaney is a virtuoso. He does a little of everything, but one of the coolest things he does (besides writing amazing stories) is run an organization called Innovate for Jesus (resources for pastors, ministry leaders, non profits, authors, etc.). The site features people like Francis Chan, Rick Warren, Pete Wilson, Matt Chandler, Mary DeMuth, and more.

Besides the super cool graphics, what is special about Isfits? Justin is releasing his Isfits series in the general kids book market rather than as Christian releases. His hope is to spread the gospel message to children who aren’t normally exposed to Christian content.

What Is Isfits?

  • Postmodern fairytales & cautionary confessions
  • A cast of characters sampled from icons of adolescence, re-imagined.
  • A completely new genre of fiction. Since that’s hard to describe, let’s call it a graphic novel like you’ve never seen before.
  • Nearly 200 original designs, optimized for inspirational display in your home, office, prison cell, igloo, or hut.

You’ll love it!), email info {at} litfusegroup {dot} com (and be entered to win $100 Amazon.com gift card!).  And if you’d like to learn more and support Justin’s Kickstarter, GO HERE.

Blurb:

My father abandoned me when I was an infant.
My friends have turned against me.
My uncle beats me.
The most powerful men in the world want me dead.
They all have one thing in common.
They think I’m turning into a monster.

I’m starting to worry they’re right.

Excerpt:

I found myself in a kingdom of stars and clouds. Endless. Deadly. And blue as blood.

Stretching without blemish from one side of the world to the other, the sky was perfect but for one single black speck.

If anyone was watching, they might have wondered whether I was merely napping on a pillow of thin air.

But it was nothing so pleasant.

This was a falling.

For what felt like hours, the whole world seemed frozen below me. Except for the wind, everything was silent. It seemed as if I could stay up there forever. It was beautiful really, whenever I managed for a few moments together to ignore the fact that I was hurtling toward the ground at about 214 miles-per-hour.

I didn’t really even feel sick to my stomach.

Until the last thirty seconds.

First, the rolling mountains and hills, which always seemed so solid and unshakable, lumbered toward me like hulking bullies begging for a fight.

Then houses and barns. They popped out of the ground, like grasping hands from a fresh grave. Pulling me down. Into the earth, where I belong.

Ten seconds later, what seemed like a bit of lint stuck to my eyelash transformed into a living human. Then more. Dozens, hundreds of people. Working, eating, anything but looking up to see me plummeting through the sky like a shooting star.

Another ten seconds–far too soon–and the whole world was rushing up at a speed that turned my stomach to acid.

It was the last hundred feet that really tested what I was made of.

Gasping one last lung full of air, I realized in that moment that I was far less brave and far more foolish than I could possibly have imagined.

And right before the end, I closed my eyes.

Because no one can watch a falling.
