The Midnight Queen (A Noctis Magicae Novel) by Sylvia Izzo Hunter BBB: If you could go to the past or future, where would you stay and why?

SIH: I’m not sure how I feel about the idea of being a tourist in the past; I think I’d be much too tempted to try to change things, and if you’ve read as many time-travel books as I have, you know how that always turns out! But I admit I’m fascinated by the code-breaking and misdirection operations run out of Bletchley Park during the Second World War, and it Read More »

Baba Ali and the Clockwork Djinn: A Steampunk Faerie Tale (Dark Quest Books) Scheherazade Deconstructed

It is a challenge to take what everyone knows and make it your own, even harder when it is a fairy tale. What do you keep? What do you lose? How do you maintain that fairy-tale feel and still tell a story that will hold a reader enthralled and keep them guessing? Do you keep the details and lose the tropes? Do you ignore literary convention and write to the theme?

Wickedly Dangerous (A Baba Yaga Novel) by Deborah Blake Wickedly Dangerous
A Different Kind of Witch

A couple of years ago, I was chatting with my agent, the lovely Elaine Spencer, about what I was going to write next.

We also talked about our mutual love of books that were updated versions of fairy tales like Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, or Sleeping Beauty. Read More »
