Today I’m over on Brenda Drake’s blog critiquing a query and some first pages for Pitchwars. Query letters may be the hardest part of writing the book. Maybe.
Today I’d like to discuss what remains of fairy tales and how it was likely very different for the people hearing them. This explains in some ways the fascination I have with fairy tales and retellings. If you read an original fairy tale without embellishment, odds are you’ll come away… Read more »
