Yes! In the latest Hawaii Fiction Writers group anthology, a fundraiser for the Friends of the Library chapters at Aina Haina Library and Kapolei Public Library:
Kissing Frogs and Other Quirky Fairy Tales
Thank you, editors extraordinaire Michael, Gail and Carol Catanzaritti (in memoriam).
While mine (“The Disrespectful Prince and The Frog”) is (as always) AWESOME, there are 25 other beautiful, funny, clever and nearly-awesome retellings of fairy tales along the lines of the old Fractured Fairy Tales cartoons.
So buy yourself a copy, buy your friends copies, buy your exes copies, buy your enemies copies, buy copies and donate them to your local school and prison libraries. And rejoice in great stories and in being an Official Goodness on the Face of the Earth™ for supporting our libraries!
Is the Western way of raising kids weird? – BBC Future
Applies to fantasy and science fiction, too. How do human and alien races raise babies? What impact does that have on culture and characters?
Think about it.
Shop local for books and music, and support our libraries!
You can also read local authors and support the Aina Haina and Kapolei Public Libraries by buying the newest Hawaii Fiction Writers’ anthology, Kissing Frogs and Other Quirky Fairy Tales. It’s fun and funny!
And a quote from him for all creators:
“I’ve told people that I feel I earn my place here on Earth each day when I am able to create something that wasn’t there before, and, in turn, some of these things enter stories that influence people.”
