Rowanwood is excited to announce our latest release, an anthology of fairy tale retellings! This anthology will be available on December 7th, 2016, and features stories from thirteen talented authors. Each story will be accompanied by a black-and-white ink illustration created by our own resident illustrator, Heidi Hayden.
Today we’re revealing the anthology’s cover:
Our cover designer is the wonderful Louis Rakovich of Indigo Forest Designs, who once again has captured the essence of our anthology in his beautiful graphic design.
The blurb for the anthology is:
In this international collection, new life is given to fairy tales, both classic and obscure.
Mythical creatures put the fairy in Fairy Tale. Mermaids, selkies, and ocean guardians experience the best and worst of humanity; sisters encounter an unusually friendly bear; a brave bride meets a silly goose; and a spinner of gold sets the record straight.
Urban fantasies modernize classics: a Frenchman learns the truth about magic, his past, and his girlfriend; a girl sets out to find love but receives a curse; and today’s naughty list makes Old Saint Nick not-so-jolly.
New worlds bring a fresh sense of wonder! In the future, a young woman fights for her people and herself; a bastard son finds acceptance in a world ruled by women; and a farmer’s wits win the heart of a frosty king.
Discover unexpected twists on old favorites, and fall in love with new tales and worlds to explore!
