Grim anthology

Like fairy tales? Love them even more when they’re retold in all their vicious, dark glory? Then today’s your day because Grim, an anthology of fairy tale retellings, edited by Christine Johnson and published by Harlequin Teen, is out now!

This anthology includes fairy tales retold by:

  • Ellen Hopkins
  • Amanda Hocking
  • Julie Kagawa
  • Claudia Gray
  • Rachel Hawkins
  • Kimberly Derting
  • Myra McEntire

"Johnson (The Gathering Dark) brings together 17 authors in a collection of reimagined fairy tales that hark back to their dark, edgy roots. … Romantic elements are prominent, as are queer characters and themes, giving rise to unexpected, even radical interpretations. Standouts include Malinda Lo’s “The Twelfth Girl,” which sees “The Twelve Dancing Princesses” set at a boarding school; Jon Skovron’s “The Raven Princess,” which puts a charming twist on the story of a princess cursed to live as a bird; and Tessa Gratton’s “Beauty and the Beast” retelling, “Beast/Beast,” which gives the Beast a worthy adversary."

The coolest thing about this anthology is that everything is up to us as authors … it’s a non-themed anthology, which means we can write whatever we want. Pretty exciting! I got to write a story that I’ve been tinkering with for a while, entitled “Madwalls,” I’m super pleased with how it came out, and I hope you’ll enjoy it when it’s available.

Now on to the cool stuff! 

There will be four editions of Unbound. A Hardcover ARC limited to 250 copies that will publish a month or two before the actual publication of the book (date still be determined). There will also be a Trade Hardcover of highest quality. And an Ebook!

So how can you get your hot little hands on one of these sweet things? On March 1st, Grim Oak Press will begin taking pre-orders for the ARC and Trade Hardcover. Those who order the ARC or Trade Hardcover in the month of March will receive the Ebook free when Unbound is published.

We’ll have more info coming soon!
