Title: Any longer, original fairytale PBs published recently?
Post by: sarah-garcia-morgan on March 01, 2019, 09:31 AM
Hi everyone!

Can anyone think of any longer (500-1000ish), original (not fractured or retold) fairytales or lyrical holiday books published in PB form in the last 5 years?  Or even any authors/publishers who publish such?  I’m finding the search a bit challenging...  Yes, I know all of those search requirement buck current trends. 🤷‍♀️  TIA!

Sarah

Hi Sarah,

I have a retelling with Arbordale Publishing. It's been a while since I've looked at their site, but if memory serves me correct, I think they may be open to original fairytales, too.

Thanks, Schriscoe!  I checked and they actually specify no fairy tales or holiday books now- they’re leaning toward science/non-fiction.  But I appreciate the thought!
