So a few months ago, I got the opportunity to write a story for an anthology -- and it comes out today. :) The theme of the collection is 'What ever happened after 'happily ever after'? I wrote about the princess from THE PRINCESS AND THE PEA. The artist, Ruth Nickle, is phenomenal, and sarahcreate (another BB member) was one of the editors. All in all, it's been a great experience.

It's available in print or e-book on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Unspun-Collection-Tattered-Fairy-Tales/dp/1986727874/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid&sr

Aw, you all are great! :) I feel kind of like a tag-along among the group because I wasn't in from the get-go, but it's been a great experience so far. And yes, I'd agree that the artist is amazing! :dragonheart

For gift giving, is this meant for older kids, teens, and adults, or is it appropriate for younger kids as a read-aloud?

I haven't read all the stories, but from what I've heard of them, I don't think there's anything too graphic. However, the concepts are probably above younger kids' comprehension. I would say they're mainly geared for YA on up. :)
