Re: QUERY: BELLE (YA-FANTASY)

Off the top: Apologies to JuniperJenny but "is informed" is in the present participle and the active voice (the progressive aspect) unless I'm totally mistaken. Same thing with "is issued." It implies action of limited but possibly incomplete duration. I think it's understood in these sentences that...

Re: QUERY: BELLE (YA-FANTASY)

This sounds great - I love that it's a twist on the Beauty and the Beast story, except in this one she loves the beast instead of the prince. But what happened to the old title?
