2 New Anthologies + A Bundle!
The end of February is a great time for reading! My stories are included in two anthologies that were released this week AND a new bundle from BundleRabbit! Here’s the scoop…
Tales of wise, ancient dragons hoarding treasure, terrorizing villages, and doing battle with noble heroes have long fascinated us. But dragons were not born old and wise, nor were heroes born brave and noble.
Wings of Change gathers tales of young dragons growing into their scales and claws, and human youths making choices that shape their destinies – destinies that will be forever changed by their interaction with the dragons that share their world.
(Includes my short story “Of Dragons and Centaurs”!)
INNOCENCE AND DECEIT
Edited by Jamie Ferguson
Audience: Fairy Tale Fantasy | General | Anthology
What if Cinderella was the wicked one, and manipulated her kind, loving stepmother and stepsisters?
Is being a handsome, charming prince really as effortless and trouble-free as it seems?
Would you be alarmed if you realized that the beautiful red shoes you’re admiring change their appearance to appeal to whoever is looking at them?
And speaking of shoes, how did Cinderella manage to dance in glass slippers without them breaking and slicing her feet to shreds?
Innocence and Deceit, the second volume in the Ever After Fairy Tales anthology series, contains fourteen fairy tales retold, reimagined, and reinvented.
Enter the magical, unpredictable, wonderful world of fairy tales!
(Includes my short story “Beauty or Butterface?”!)
CAT TALES Issue 1
Bundled by Steve Vernon
Audience: Cat Fiction | General | Bundle
No matter where you are, no matter what you are doing – cats are always watching you. Even when you think that cat is totally ignoring you, that cat is watching.
Do you own a cat? Take a quick look, and see if that cat doesn’t flick one ear, or twitch their tail, or even briefly cock one vertical eye into a kind of a gun-slit winky-peek radar-honing right in your general direction – while all the while letting on like that cat doesn’t even notice you.
So, seeing that your cat is doing all of that watching, maybe you had better grab yourself a look at these nine magical cat tales. Read them to yourself or better yet read them aloud to your cat and see if you can’t irritate one of those low and rumbling growls of indignation that only cats can seem to make happen.
Just watch and see.
(Includes my short story “On Guard”!)
