Fell Beasts and Fair for preorder

Back in 2009 a story of mine, "The Gallows Maiden," about a crow girl, was in an anthology called StereoOpticon. It's been reanthologized in Fell Beasts and Fair, which is now available for preorder at Spring Song Press.

Thieves, dragons, nightmares, fairy warriors, pookas, enchanted bear-men, and other magical creatures will delight you in these unique tales of possibility, courage, and hope.

My impression, just paging through the ARC, is that "The Gallows Maiden" is an outlier in being dark, and possibly for an older audience, though I won't know for sure until I've tried reading some of the other stories. I asked the publisher about the others, and here's what they said about a few:

"A Midsummer Knight’s Bedtime Story" --charming, unexpected.
"Winter Horses" --so well-written, kind of quiet.
"The Dove of Assisi" --lovely, sweet
"The Lady and the Unicorn": --took the idea in a completely different direction

Oh that's so awesome, girl! You should totally post it to the community. ;)

I'll add it to my to-read list and order it once I have more money, haha. ♥

And you should definitely look into Spring Song Press! The founder is a self-publisher--she still writes and self-publishes--but she also publishes other people's things, and she produces lovely-looking books.

ETA: What I mean to say is, if you ever write short-form, you should submit there.

And about the community, are you allowed to post stuff there that isn't self-published?

Yeah it's cool girl! It's to get the word out for indie authors more than anything! :)

I must say somewhat diffidently that this is an old story and not at all like the ghost story. I like this story a lot! But ... it's different.
