I may have mentioned it once or twice that two of my stories were published in an anthology in 2017… Anyhow, here are all the details you need to get excited over retellings of the the classic Cinderella story.
Cinderella Reimagined: An anthology of Cinderella Retellings
Do you sometimes feel you are living a Cinderella life? Maybe there is a little Cinderella in all of us. Even your favorite guy best friend may have his happily ever after, Cinderella style.
Don’t take your shoe shopping routine for granted. You never know who might be there to help you try on your new perfect pair, a pair that may not be just ordinary shoes. A glass slipper could be magical or perhaps one left behind in need of a little TLC. Remember, magic dwells in the most unexpected places.
And do let some step-sisters surprise you. They are not all ugly. After all, Cinderella is one, too.
Most importantly, don’t let Cinderella fool you into believing that she is a pushover or a damsel in distress.
Cinderella Reimagined is an anthology of Cinderella retellings, consisting of fourteen short stories written by a group of authors who took on the challenge of giving the classic folk tale a modern twist. Opening with a short poem, the book is an enjoyable easy read, with stories told from various perspectives. Most importantly, Cinderella becomes anything but the classic fairy tale princess we have known.
This collection is for readers who are looking for a feel-good and fun book.
