I am very pleased to announce the release of Magical: An Anthology of Fantasy, Fairy Tales, and Other Magical Fiction, a collection of 31 stories from writers around the globe–including yours truly!
I’ll just wait here for a minute while you go buy the book…
Awesome–thanks for your purchase!
As you know–since you just procured your very own copy!–stories in this collection retell classics like “Little Red Riding Hood” and invent new tales of goblins, dragons, witches, or singing frogs. There’s something here for everyone!
These tales for adults will take you back to a more innocent time–times when certain people fooled other, more gullible people into trading cows for a few beans; allowed dudes to use their hair in bizarre rock-climbing experiments; turned ordinary crops into gold; and otherwise maimed, killed, and ate other people. Ah, fairy tales!
And here’s the best part: I, and several other contributors, will be reading selections from our stories at on Friday, December 5, at 7 pm. (That’s tomorrow night, if you’re reading this today!)
Location: The Writer’s Center
4508 Walsh St
Bethesda, MD 20815
Exciting, right? I know!!! Please RSVP here. It will ask you to “buy” tickets, but the tickets are free; we just ask you to RSVP so we know how many snacks to buy.
BUT THERE’S MORE!
A full ten (10!) percent of the proceeds–now through Christmas–will go to Tim’s Team, a foundation to help raise awareness of cystic fibrosis. I mean, really! If you haven’t bought the book already (and I did give you ample time above), how could you refuse Tim? In the words of the dear, sweet editor, Kelly Jacobson: “Even if we can’t make magic real, we can do some magical good in the world with our stories.”
