Help me name my new collection!

I’m preparing a new collection of fairy tales, aiming for release around Christmas. The two centerpiece stories in it will be the 3-chapter Heart of Rock and Bridge of Seven Stones (about losing baby teeth). It will also include The Snarls (currently free at most vendors, including Amazon) and Stone Eyes, a take-off on the Tam Lin story, and one or two yet-to-be written tales.

The winner will receive a signed copy of either the new collection or of Dragons and Dreams, whichever they prefer.

entries can be left here or at the Facebook page

Thanks!

Sur La Lune Fairy Tales

I’ve just discovered a new-to-me site called Sur La Lune Fairy Tales. It contains 49 annotated classic fairy tales, generally from Northern Europe area. There’s a FAQ and a discussion of fairy tale studies, and a blog with daily postings. I’m still exploring the site, and having a great deal of fun thereby.  If you’re interested in fairy tales in general, you can’t do better than explore this site.

I”m sure that, as I read it, I’ll have lots of thoughts to share with you on it.

Another site I’ve recently discovered is “Sources for the Analysis and Interpretation of Folk and Fairy Tales“.This is a much more academic site, more an annotated bibliography of resources than it is a blog itself. I can see that my Amazon account may take some hits as I explore this resource too!
