I know that it has been a while since I published a blog post (I did warn this blog would be on an irregular schedule), but I have wonderful news to share: Fae, an anthology edited by Rhonda Parrish has a release date: July 22, 2014. My story, “Faerie Knight” is one of the stories inside this new anthology from World Weaver Press. I’m VERY excited as this marks my very first “book” publication. I’ve been published before, but there is nothing quite like the feeling of being able to say that your work is inside a “book.” Below is the World Weaver Press listing for the upcoming title. They also have quite a few other interesting anthologies–be sure to check them out by clicking on the World Weaver Press link.
Fae anthology edited by Rhonda Parrish.
Meet Robin Goodfellow as you’ve never seen him before, watch damsels in distress rescue themselves, get swept away with the selkies and enjoy tales of hobs, green men, pixies and phookas. One thing is for certain, these are not your grandmother’s fairy tales.
Fairies have been both mischievous and malignant creatures throughout history. They’ve dwelt in forests, collected teeth or crafted shoes. Fae is full of stories that honor that rich history while exploring new and interesting takes on the fair folk from castles to computer technologies and modern midwifing, the Old World to Indianapolis.
Fae covers a vast swath of the fairy story spectrum, making the old new and exploring lush settings with beautiful prose and complex characters. Enjoy the familiar feeling of a good old-fashioned fairy tale alongside urban fantasy and horror with a fae twist.
