What would make a modern fairytales even better than before...what is missing? I know sprinkle in some high school students, put a dash of fashion, and even better yet add a huge twist. Now the men are the ones in danger. No longer does the D in D.I.D stand for damsel. Grab onto your Princess in Shining Armor and save the Dudes in Distress. Tru was just a normal girl, in love with a handsome football jock. Who would have known that he was trapped in the tower of someone else's desires for him, just like Rapunzel had been locked away. Can Tru save her handsome Rock Punzel, or will she fail at becoming Princess Charming? Rock never wanted the same things in life that his step father planned for him.

That all changed when he accidentally ran into a girl who could change his life.

From the Author:

Since I was a child I had only ever heard stories about damsels in distress, your basic D.I.D, who were living lives controlled by men, waiting for some brave hero to save them. Then I realized something, I didn't want to be saved. I knew that I wanted seize the horses reigns, rip off the petticoats, and dawn the white horse myself. I promised I would be Princess Charming and be my own Lady in Shining Armor.

That was what inspired Dudes in Distress, a series about women who save themselves, and are the heroess, the one who swoops in and saves the day. Reversing the roles in a Fairy Tale and making it modern seemed like the best way to go. I hope that you can enjoy DID the way that I do writing it.

From the Inside Flap:

Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair. Escape your step mother's grasp and flea your tower. Wouldn't it be wonderful if life was like a fairytale? If life was so simple that one could truly compile it and compress the actions into formatted verse, complete with full rhyme scheme? Unfortunately, life is never that easy. Life is like an open prose poem, with uneven lines, unpredictable wording, and chaotic non-rhyming. Life comes across more like: Rock Punzel, Rock Punzel let down your sheets. Escape your step father's grasp and flea the cheerleader's tower. I wish it was easy, simple, compressed, something, anything but what it is. I love Rock. Rock Punzel, that is. He is the most amazing man in the world, a football player, a straight A student, a total hottie, and-sadly-Hillary Stalker, the head cheerleader's boyfriend. I have nothing against cheerleaders, other than I'm not one. I couldn't do it, though. All that working out, screaming, and cold nights in miniskirts; not really my scene. It's just when you see them walking down the hallways in uniform, men slobbering, girls whispering juicy gossip, you just yearn to be them.  I yearn to be one of them, especially when I see Rock Punzel with his arms around Hillary. Punzel is the perfect last name for him because he is so much like Rapunzel. No, I don't mean he has long hair and lives in a tower high above the land in the center of a forest. I mean he is a D.I.D (Usually Damsel, but in this case Dude In Distress) who is trapped from making his own destiny because he is bound to the tower of someone else's dreams.
