CHECK THIS OUT: Modern Magic: A Quartet of Fractured Fairy Tales

MODERN MAGIC: A Quartet of Fractured Fairy Tales

I'm gonna cut to the chase. My publisher, Crimson Romance, put out a call for 'Fractured Fairy Tales' earlier this year - I was all over it, of course! My synopsis didn't make the cut, but the result is this incredible bundle of short stories that you have to (HAVE TO) read. Take a look at Modern Magic: A Quartet of Fractured Fairy Tales - you'll be glad you did!

The Stories Have Changed A Little...

What if Cinderella ditched the prince's ball and sent her fairy godmother to find love in her place?

Suppose a streetwise hero hired to steal an all-powerful Genie (stuck in a flash drive rather than a brass lamp) for a tech company ended up running for his life with the CEO's gorgeous, intelligent daughter?

Or what if the bed that a certain golden-tressed girl accidentally napped in belonged to the hot and famous middle brother of a notorious boy band?

Can you envision the sparks that might fly if a bitter and downright beastly wheelchair-bound woman propositioned a handsome bookseller to stay with her in exchange for her rare book collection?

This spellbinding anthology features modern and sexy spins on four classic fairy tales that will enchant you by Jennifer DeCuir, Stephanie Cage, Andrea R. Cooper, and Nancy C. Weeks.

This set of short stories is a charming little collection; Modern Magic pretty much embodies the Crimson Romance logo, to say the very least - Strong. Smart. Satisfying. With the winter months approaching, you're gonna need a collection of stories with which to snuggle! And since both Kirby AND Company Ink are already on your virtual shelves (smile), you should definitely add this digibox set!

About The Authors

Jennifer DeCuir, author of A Late-Blooming Rose, grew up in a small town in Maine, which provides the basis for Scallop Shores, the fictional town in Drawn to Jonah. She's busy raising two kids and a husband. She loves including children and babies in her stories, as her own provide endless story ideas. Currently residing in rain-soaked Washington, she can usually be found working on her latest book in a local Starbucks.
Where to find Jennifer DeCuir:

Stephanie Cage, author of Music to Her Ears is a British romance writer, author of 'Perfect Partners' (Crimson Romance) and 'Desperate Bid (The Wild Rose Press). She studied English Literature at Oxford University and Creative Writing at Bath Spa. One of her most exciting writing moments was winning a holiday to Sicily in the Woman's Own Short Story Competition. More recently she won the Yorkshire Ridings Magazine's Romance Story competition. Oddly, both short stories were set in the same location in Yorkshire.
Where to find Stephanie Cage:

Andrea R. Cooper, author of Fairy Trouble writes fantasy, paranormal, historical and romantic suspense. Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.

Nancy C. Weeks, author of His One Wish has loved happy-ever-after romances since she was in her early teens. While still in college, she met and married her hero. She spent the next several years honeymooning and working overseas. Today, she lives in suburban Maryland with her husband of more than thirty years. With her two grown children out of the nest, she loves spending her days on her deck writing as the local bird population keeps her company.

  1. Can I wake up to praise like this every Monday morning? Oh my goodness! We are such lucky authors to have someone in our own corner cheering us on like this. Thank you so much, Samantha Anne. I sincerely hope Crimson publishes another collection of twisted fairy tales - and I highly encourage you to submit again. :D

  2. Hi Samantha! I'm with Jennifer. What a sweet comment about Modern Magic. This is my first visit to your lovely blog and I can't thank you enough for allowing us to drop by.

  3. Wishing you ladies the best of luck with this collection! The fact that Crimson ran with an idea like this honestly makes me feel like they're the kind of publisher that roots for those quirky-minded authors (like us!) with a unique (yet wholly familiar) story to tell. I certainly hope everyone gets to have the kind of fun I did reading this set! :)

  4. Aw! Thanks so much for your support! I wrote another story too which didn't make the cut but I hope to find a home for it one day... a crazy sci-fi version of Sleeping Beauty. What did you have in mind to write, if you don't mind my asking?

  5. Hey Stephanie - you'll have my endless support regardless (cuz, hello? Labelmates!), but this was truly a collection of stories I could sink my teeth into! I started (but hadn't finished) a twist on Rumpelstiltskin. I definitely liked the story, but hey - in retrospect, it might have been a little dark, even a little off mark - but I haven't let the concept go, so you may see it yet!
