The giveaway for Moonblood has reached its end, and I’m excited to announce that Kat won the book!
Thanks to all of you who participated. I always wish I could give away a copy to each person who entered, but since I can’t, I recommend that you buy this one. And check back later, because I will continue to offer future giveaways.
If you’re curious about what inspires Anne Elisabeth Stengl, you may want to check out her new blog series Famous Fairies in Fiction. Here’s what she has to say about it:
“Here, gentle readers, is the first of my newest series, in the spirit of the Tuesday’s Dragon series that went over rather well last year. I write what I consider to be ‘new fairy tales’ myself with the Goldstone Wood series, and my research for these stories often brings me in contact with classic fairies of yore, creatures far more wonderful and more terrible than we can quite fathom.”
If you write or read fairy tale style fantasy, you should take a look at this series on classic fairies.
And while we’re on the topic of fairy tales, I wanted to recommend one more resource–the SurLaLune blog, which explores fairy tales in books, art, film, academics and more. If you want a glimpse at the way fairy tales have permeated culture, I suggest stopping by.
