I'm not sure why I haven't posted about this fabulous anthology I'm taking part in yet, but alas, here is the (somewhat belated) Publisher's Marketplace deal announcement from earlier this month:
Cyn Balog, Georgia McBride and Michelle Zink, eds.'s TWO AND TWENTY DARK TALES: Dark Retellings of Mother Goose Rhymes, a charity anthology in which authors including: CynBalog, Nina Berry, Sarwat Chadda, Leah Cypess, Shannon Delany with Max Scialdone, Debra Driza, Leigh Fallon, Angie Frazier, Jessie Harrell, Nancy Holder, Heidi R. Kling, Suzanne Lazear, Karen Mahoney, Lisa Mantchev, Georgia McBride, C. Lee McKenzie, Gretchen McNeil, Pamela van Hylckama Vlieg, K.M. Walton, Suzanne Young, Michelle Zink, and one previously unpublished writer, Sayantani Das Gupta, explore the dark, hidden meanings behind some of our most beloved Mother Goose rhymes through short-story retellings, with a foreword by Francisco X. Stork, to Georgia McBride of Month9Books, for publication in October 2012 (World).
I just received some lovely bookmarks and postcards to promote the anthology this fall (available in October in paperback and as an e-book) and there is a big cover reveal coming up this month with Kristi at The Story Siren. I'll be sure to post about it when the time comes!
I'm SO excited about this anthology, y'all. I mean, dark retellings of Mother Goose rhymes? How can you go wrong with that? I was thrilled to be asked to contribute with so many superstar writers. My story involves dark magic, deadly risk, two sisters divided by a secret, and of course, a romantic element :-)
In fact when I was writing it I started to kind of love it—like, write a whole book someday kind of love. Can't wait to post more about the anthology. Until then, if you haven't heard of Georgia McBride's new venture, Month9Books, check out the website HERE.
