Now that I've signed the contract, I can tell you the good news about the short story I periodically mentioned I was editing. It's going to be published in Enchanted Conversation, a new online journal of fairytales. The first issue will be published online in January 2010, and the theme will be centered around "Sleeping Beauty." I wrote a short story called "The Scullery Boy Remembers," inspired by the following passage in the Grimms' version of the story:
The horses, too, went to sleep in the stable, the dogs in the yard, the pigeons upon the roof, the flies on the wall; even the fire that was flaming on the hearth became quiet and slept, the roast meat left off frizzling, and the cook, who was just going to pull the hair of the scullery boy, because he had forgotten something, let him go, and went to sleep.
I'll let you know when Enchanted Conversation debuts. In the meantime, take a look at the submissions guidelines and topics for future issues.
