Newest Idea--With First Look (!)

I've had this cover made for the longest time, having been completely bored one night and stumbling upon the perfect picture. I do not yet know where I want to go with this, but I am hoping to make it kind of a 'Snow White' meets 'Red Riding Hood' meets 'Beauty and the Beast' type of story. I'm not completely sure yet. It's called Rose White, and it will have shape-shifters within. Anyway, here's a special peek to the beginning:

There comes a time when we all must accept reality. In fact, it only happens to the majority of us. Some of us still believe in the unbelievable, the myths that are formed within this world. Those people are the ones who hope to find their Edward Cullen, or Patch, or maybe even Peter Pan. Hell if I know. Either way, none of those hopers would take my life. Even though he is a werewolf, my “beau” is not what all of those other authors make them out to be.
His name? Coswald Fitzgerald.
That’s right. Coswald.
Sometimes, even when we get that “faery tale ending,” we wish everything would just be normal. Human. Natural. But there is nothing natural about this story even when appearances are as such in the beginning.
Which is why not everything can be judged by how it starts, but rather how it is to end.

Old New Ideas

I've recently joined a writer's group and have gotten tips on how to better my writing, along with ideas on how to continue my writing when in the case of writer's block. But first, I think I should introduce these new ideas (that I have been working on for a while now, actually):

Most would believe this to be a re-telling of "The Little Mermaid." But it's not. Instead, I am the human and my prince the merman. The crazy sea witch would be my mother, and the third person in the love triangle is his fiance, chosen at birth. This is our story.

Fynn never believed in fairy tales. Even after meeting Calixto that day in the pond. Then, she nearly drowns and Cal is the only one who was able to save her. But he won't get out of the water, no matter how much she asks. Too late, Fynn realizes her mind had been refusing to acknowledge what had been right in front of her all along: fairy tales are real. Even the unfortunate ones.

Morgan Le Fay
Morgan Le Fay, enchantress, shape-shifter, seductress. But now she's on the run with her husband, Uriens. Things soon turn deadly, however, and it's up to Morgana and her newly made 'pet' crow, Letum, to set things straight, pulling them into the future before sending them back to change their fates.

I changed the cover, as this is more appealing than the last.

To Ride Upon the Pegasus
Amyra wants nothing more than to stay a normal girl. But with her mom's schizophrenic tendencies, her dad is constantly moving them, leery of what people will think. She thinks this new house will be exactly the same--expects it, really. When her mom goes on rants about mythical creatures, Amyra's had enough and she takes off, running from home. Until a discovery holds her back.

Hell's Prince (Death Watchers #2)
Cole didn't ask to be the Prince of the Underworld, but he is. Born from his mother and her Shadow Man's joining, he's been summoned to the world he swore he would never return to. Jocelynn is missing and a rebellion is under way, forcing him to return to his home realm to save his love.
