3 Million and Counting- Soman Chainani: The Man, His Time, His Truth

“When you Deny yourself, you Deny EVERYTHING else!”

-Soman Chainani

Walking into the industry with the odds stacked against him, Soman Chainani is a testament to what it means to allow your determination to fuel your drive. Tackling the industry from an angle that has become a staple amongst readers, Soman has used his creative ability to feed the masses.

Deciding that he didn’t need anyone’s permission to write, Soman has introduced to “The School for Good and Evil.” After 16 No’s, it was one Female Publisher of Color who understood the unique perspective expressed within the pages and decided to take a leap and bring “The School for Good and Evil” to fruition.

Soman’s first novel, The School for Good and Evil, debuted on the New York Times Bestseller List, has sold more than 3 million copies, been translated into 30 languages across 6 continents, and will soon be a film from Netflix directed by Paul Feig.

His other five books in the School for Good and Evil series – A World Without Princes, The Last Ever After, Quests for Glory, A Crystal of Time and One True King – have all debuted on the New York Times Bestseller List as well. To date, these six books in the series have been on the print and extended New York Times Bestseller List for more than 35 weeks. -source: Wikipedia

You think you know these stories, don’t you?

You are wrong.

You don’t know them at all.

Twelve tales, twelve dangerous tales of mystery, magic, and rebellious hearts. Each twists like a spindle to reveal truths full of warning and triumph, truths that free hearts long kept tame, truths that explore life . . . and death.

A prince has a surprising awakening . . .

A beauty fights like a beast . . .

A boy refuses to become prey . . .

A path to happiness is lost. . . . then found again.

New York Times bestselling author Soman Chainani respins old stories into fresh fairy tales for a new era and creates a world like no other. These stories know you. They understand you. They reflect you. They are tales for our times. So read on, if you dare.
