Announcement time! You may remember a couple years ago I was supposed to co-edit and have a story in a sci-fi fairy tale retellings anthology. And then I got sick (this surprises no one). I’ve been feeling bad about that story, though. It’s been sitting there unfinished and neglected on my hard drive all this time. Then my publisher came up with the idea to do an anthology, so it lives again! *confetti*
Presenting: Magic at Midnight!
Once upon a time is eternal…
Turn the pages and fall into the enchanting worlds of beloved, age-old fairy tales made new again in this fifteen-story collection from Snowy Wings Publishing.
A girl with long, long hair is trapped in an attic, ensnared by promises of immortality, the radio her only companion. An android wants to believe in her life, that the feelings she has are real—and that she might be just as beautiful as her famous stepsister. A gamer must save her true love from the mysterious, dark entity that has ensnared him in their MMORPG. A modern teen is lured to the fantastical Land of the Dolls, and only her own cunning can help her escape. These are just a few of the bewitching tales found within Magic at Midnight.
From sci-fi to fantasy, contemporary to historical, paranormal and more, there’s a fairy tale retelling in this collection for every reader. Featuring stories from bestselling and award-winning YA authors as well as emerging voices, this anthology will take you to distant worlds and back again—all just familiar enough to make you feel at home.
My story is called “CinderellA.I.” I don’t want to give away too much for fear of spoilers, but:
- Cinderella from the POV of one of the stepsisters
- Animatrons in a theme park
- What is humanity? What makes someone alive?
In other news, I’m pretty excited for Detroit: Become Human.
I can’t wait to bring this story to you after such a long wait! Watch this space for more news about Magic at Midnight, which is releasing May 29! In the meantime, feel free to add it on Goodreads now!
