Today would have been the 35th birthday of someone very special to our Scribe. Melinda’s younger sister, Carolyn, passed away in 2014, and all Melinda’s books are dedicated to her memory.
Before her death, Carolyn asked Melinda to publish the Curse Breaker series. She did, and now we are pleased to present:
Curse Breaker: Enchanted (The More Epic Version, Revised)
It has a gorgeous cover that looks a little more like Papa than some of our previous covers, but as always, you can imagine him to look however you want as long as you imagine, me, Ran, his lovable son and sidekick, as a miniature version of him right down to his boots. I even have a kid-sized copy of his cloak and Ranger’s uniform. 🙂
(In case you were wondering, no, I haven’t forgotten about that dragon or the dirty trick she pulled last week. I’ll get her for that. But I have to be sneaky about it because she *is* a dragon, and I’m just a little boy with a very magical Papa. More on that next week. Let me get back to our memorial issue.)
Inside Curse Breaker: Enchanted, the More Epic Version, Revised, you’ll find a revised story that more closely matches the style of our later books. It’s been re-edited and during that process, we realized the truth.
Curse Breaker: Enchanted isn’t one book. It’s two.
But those two books had spent three years together as one book, so we didn’t separate them. Instead, we changed the formatting to make it clear where one ends and other begins. They’re labeled as parts since we have always published them together as one book.
How can I get my hands on it?

My favorite books are the kind that you can pick up at any age, old or young, love when you first read them, and then continue to enjoy for decades to come. What’s even better is when you know you can hand them to anyone in your family and share the fun together.—Emily Martha Sorensen
