Spotlight: #FindingCinderella by Colleen Hoover – How Readers Turned a Free E-book into a Printed Book


#Finding Cinderella

If you’ve been anywhere near the Atira Twitter feed or Atria Indie Authors page, you’ve seen a movement.  #1 Bestseller Colleen Hoover’s fans, under the name #CoHorts, started a petition to have Finding Cinderella, a free e-short story, turned into a printed book (because you can’t smell an e-reader, and their shelves were lonely).  5,000 tweets, hundreds of posts and memes, and a few Harry Connick Jr. references later, Atria finally announced that they are printing the book!

Finding Cinderella printed edition will be released in paperback on March 18th, 2014 and will include an exclusive epilogue not featured in the e-book, a note from the author, and will feature fan tweets from the #FindingCinderella campaign on the back inside cover!

Pre-order links will appear on retailer sites next week — the proverbial Glass Slipper — and Atria will be giving away the first print copy to a fan who finds them!  If you see the print book available for pre-order, take a screenshot and tweet it with the message, “I found the Glass Slipper! #FindingCinderella” for a chance to win.



Finding Cinderella (Hopeless #2.5) by Colleen Hoover



This novella is a companion novel to the Hopeless series, but can be read as a standalone.

A chance encounter in the dark leads eighteen-year-old Daniel and the girl who stumbles across him to profess their love for each other. But this love comes with conditions: they agree it will only last one hour and it will only be make-believe.

When their hour is up and the girl rushes off like Cinderella, Daniel tries to convince himself that what happened between them only seemed perfect because they were pretending it was perfect. Moments like that with girls like her don’t happen outside of fairytales.

One year and one bad relationship later, his disbelief in insta-love is stripped away the day he meets Six: a girl with a strange name and an even stranger personality. Daniel soon realizes the way he pretended to feel about Cinderella and the way he really feels about Six may not be so different after all. Especially when the two loves of his life end up being one in the same.

Unfortunately for Daniel, finding Cinderella doesn’t guarantee their happily ever after…it only further threatens it.
