Are you always on the hunt for a good deal? I know I am! As you know, retellings are my fave, and I'm always drawn to a book immediately if it retells pretty much anything!

When I found out that 22 authors were releasing new tales in an anthology, I got instant grabby hands. One thing I like about e-book anthologies is that stories can be as long as they need to be. It doesn't have to be a short story. It can be a novella or, every once in a while, a full-length novel. However long it takes to tell the story. I've always loved the idea of anthologies, and I buy them when I see one from a group of authors I love or if it's fairy tale - related, but I don't always love reading them because not everyone can write a good short story. The pacing is too fast, the story doesn't make sense, or, occasionally, you fall so deeply in love and wish the story was so much longer. So I actually have been really loving this trend for a bunch of authors to get together and release a digital anthology, because the stories tend to be so much more fleshed out and interesting!

ONCE UPON ANOTHER WORLD: A Twisted Fairy Tale Box Set comes out later this year, on October 6th, but if you pre-order this week, you can take advantage of a special sale to snag a copy for a mere 99 cents! The pre-order just went up yesterday, and the promotion is an incentive for being an early purchaser.

I first heard about this anthology because I follow one of the authors, L.R.W. Lee, who wrote The Sand Maiden trilogy, a New Adult Fantasy centered around Sandman lore (Check out my review of the first book, LULLABY, now!)

Lee took the time to tell us a little bit about her title in the collection in today's post. Here's a sneak peek:

  • WHEN YOU WISH is, a modern fusion of the Sandman and Sleeping Beauty
  • Elevator Pitch: Princess Onora is new to the whole dream weaving gig, but on a particularly quiet, easy night weaving the dreams of her charge, she senses the presence of another--a mysterious being whose presence is foggy and feels full of fear. When she investigates, she discovers a sandman prince who has been asleep for one hundred years and she determines to find and wake him... If only it was that simple.

Intrigued for the rest of the anthology? 
So am I! 
Here's a summary for the anthology at large,
as well as a full author roster:

Not all fairy tales are as they appear.

Was it actually Red who hunted the wolf? What if the prince was the one in distress? Did the straw really get spun into gold? How well did those glass slippers truly fit?

Where princesses do their own rescuing, princes aren't who they first appear to be, and beasts are friends, not foe—and maybe something more...

Grab your copy of ONCE UPON ANOTHER WORLD and discover 22 twisted fairy tales with a happily ever after unlike anything you've ever read before.

With stories spanning from true love's kiss to reverse harem, skyscrapers to ancient castles, sweet romance to steamy nights, these alluring tales will satisfy readers of fantasy and romance alike.
