Fragments of Ash
(A Modern Fairytale #7)
Publication date: October 1st 2018
Genres: Fairy Tales, Romance
From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery comes a dark and twisted retelling of the beloved fairytale, Cinderella!
My name is Ashley Ellis…
I was thirteen years old when my mother – retired supermodel, Tig – married Mosier Răumann, who was twice her age and the head of the Răumann crime family.
When I turned eighteen, my mother mysteriously died. Only then did I discover the dark plans my stepfather had in store for me all along; the debauched “work” he expected me to do.
With the help of my godfather, Gus, I have escaped from Mosier’s clutches, but his twin sons and henchmen have been tasked with hunting me down. And they will stop at nothing to return my virgin body to their father
…dead or alive.

“Katy Regnery’s Top 10 Favorite Fairytales”
Beauty and the Beast
I love the library, of course.
But more than anything, I love it that Belle sees beyond the beast to the man inside.
I love watching them fall in love.
The Little Mermaid
Ariel is one of the most plucky, headstrong heroines out there, and I respect her for it.
She risks everything for true love.
Not all love stories have to be romantic (though Christian is pretty cute!)
Some of the best love stories feature family members who realize
that their affection for one another gives them the strength to conquer all.
The Ugly Duckling
Like Beauty and the Beast, this is another great transformation story.
I am SO excited to give this story my own spin in 2019!
Who wouldn’t want that gorgeous, long, blonde hair?
Seriously, it’s the prettiest. Add the spunky personality of the Disney heroine,
and you’ve for a great character!
I actually came up with a modern fairytale based on this story.
It took place in Vegas and it was all sorts of seedy and sordid,
with a man having to give up his 18-year-old daughter to a man to whom he lost a bet.
Hmm…maybe someday I’ll circle back to it some day.
The Pied Piper
Arguably one of the most terrifying fairytales.
Piper comes to town, gets rid of rats, presents a bill to the town
and the town refuses to pay. So Piper kills the children.
It’s horrifying, right? Vengeance is fascinating to write, though.
Lauren Stewart did a gorgeous re-write of this fairytale called “Darker Water”
and you all have to read it. Plus, the name “Aurora.” So pretty.
Who doesn’t love a handsome rogue who steals from the rich and gives it to the poor?
Rip Van Winkle
Ole’ Rip isn’t such a fun character.
But the “men in the mountain” playing nine-pin?
Sometimes when it thunders, I grin as I think of them.
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract, and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.
Forty books later, Katy claims authorship of the multititled New York Times and USA Today bestselling Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other stand-alone novels and novellas, including the critically-acclaimed, 2018 RITA© nominated, USA Today bestselling contemporary romance, Unloved, a love story.
Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, became a New York Times e-book bestseller.
Katy’s books are available in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Turkish.
Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
