February is known for Valentine’s Day, but I prefer the less-well-known Fairy Tale Day, which takes place on February 26th. Who needs cards and flowers when they could be reading a fresh new fairy tale retelling?
In celebration of fairy tales old and new, my writer’s group, the Just-Us League, is releasing our second fairy tale anthology on February 26th. Leading up to that date, you can expect a cover reveal, a sneak peek at my retelling, “Solstice Flames”, and more!
Today, I’m sharing the title and the blurb as a brief teaser…
Of Legend and Lore: A Collection of Fairy Tale Retellings
New life is given to eleven old stories in this second collection of irresistible fairy tale retellings.
Royalty faces magical challenges: a prince uses his powers on a rescue mission and reveals a terrible secret about his people; a king takes drastic measures to save his daughters from a troublesome curse; and a princess befriends an unusual frog.
Mythical creatures can be friend or foe: three brothers face a depressed dragon with a legendary treasure; an ancient crow brings a child’s wishes to life; and one young girl discovers dragons aren’t always the enemy.
Heroes come in all shapes and sizes: a miser is in danger of losing everything one cold night; a struggling mirrorsmith meets an invisible recluse; a boy must relive the fairy tale based on his ancestor’s life; a child is rejected because of his love of drawing cats; and an evil witch is sealed in a glass coffin.
Be transported to new worlds and enjoy fresh twists on old favorites.
